Hear Me Roar

Yesterday I updated my blog for the first in several months.

Just a few hours later, I received an email from Chicago Public Radio asking me to talk about the campaigns by the US Campaign for Burma to force corporations out of Burma.

Over the past ten years, I have been interviewed several times by Jerome McDonnell for his show, Worldview. But the show had lost track of me since my move to Washington, DC. Fortunately a web search by a Worldview producer turned up this blog and my current email address.

Check out the January 24 edition of Worldview on Chicago Public Radio here.

Make sure you listen to the segment with Katie Redford and Ka Hsaw Wa of EarthRights International about their lawsuit Unocal for its complicity in human rights abuses in Burma.

I'm very glad I finally posted an update to my blog!

Resurfacing...

I have so much to report.

Last July, Ann and I moved to Washington, DC. We now live in the far northeast corner of Capitol Hill on a quiet section of F Street NE.

We moved so that I could take up the position of Director of the Big Box Collaborative, an alliance of groups battling Wal-Mart and the "big box" retail stores. The first shareholder resolution that I ever filed was at Wal-Mart back in 1992. It's interesting how my work has turned full circle.

I miss Boston badly.

There's more to follow.
