Every day is a gift, every night is an orgy

Greetings from Tokyo. I have read your article of “The White Book of Nuclear Deaths” from the international Women in Black Network. It reminds me of the fact that both of nuclear weapons and nuclear power are used deliberately silencing and ignoring certain people and devaluing their lives. Seeing the political and economic leaders who openly advocate for nuclear power even after the Fukushima disaster for the sake of growth and national pride, I feel that we are at war. I was deeply impressed when I first read Nuha al Radi’s Baghdad Diaries but I could not link what she wrote and what is happening in Japan today until I read your essay. I am working for a feminist organization based in Tokyo, and would like to include your essay for the special issue on feminist lens on nuclear. Would you give me permission to do that? I would very much appreciate if you would.

pozdravi iz Dalmacija.
Being a retired Dutchman living in the Dalmatinska Zagora near Omis, I found a column of yours in a Belgian newspaper.
About nationalism, I would like to tell you it’s bloody alive in Croatia.
Just yesterday some idiots placed an explosive at the window of some Serbian building in Split (see Slobodna Dalmacija).
And also recent is a violent dispute about a Cyrillic text on a memorial place in Vukovar.
Still there is a tremendous lot to be done by politicians, church fathers, teachers and parents to end ongoing animosity against Serbian people, and any other non-Croat that stays longer than needed to empty his pockets.
I love Croatia, ja volim Hrvatska, and most of its people, but I get sick of them nationalistic/patriotic idiots that do not respect other people, believe, race or history.
This country is still far from being where Serbia is going today, cleaning up the dirt that was spread by both Milosevic AND Tudjman.
Such a fantastic country indeed, but still not as fantastic as it should and could be for everybody that lived and lives here.
Pozdravi iz Svinisce, Pim de Vos.
