50 years an activist/Comox Project 1965

Just celebrated my 50th anniversary as an activist. August 28 was the 50th anniversary of the Comox Project mass civil disobedience at the Comox Air Base, I was there sitting down blocking a gate for 32 hours. This event completely transformed my life, making me the person I am today.

This week end Aug28-31 we had a reunion of Comox Project veterans and about a dozen of us showed up to have a great time reconnecting, reminiscing, discussing the import of the project, drinking wine and beer and eating. Many thanks to Peter Light who did so much – including building an octagon shelter and stone fire circle.
