Devizes Melting Pot

“Protection. Conservation. Restriction. Deep ecology. Give me deep technology any day. They don't scare me. "I'm damned if I'll crawl, my children's children crawl on the earth in some kind a fuckin' harmony with the environment. Yeah, till the next ice age or the next asteroid impact." (Moh Kohn, The Star Fraction)/ "This is the fight between God and the Devil. If His Grace is with God, he must join me, if he is for the Devil he must fight me. There is no third way" King Gustavus Adolphus

Saturday Fairtrade & Palestine Blogging

As part of Fairtrade Fortnight my town of Devizes, which has been declared a Fairtrade Town holds a fair/market at the Corn Exchange where local & fairtrade producers can come and sell their goods, mingle and attend talks. This year my mum had arranged for Zaytoun to come to the event to sell their products and they had 2 speakers who gave talks about farming in Palestine and the story and process of how it goes from Palestine to the UK. There was also a demonstration by a local chef on how to make the Palestinian dish Malfoof.
