Following on from Part 1 of the interview with Yogabeats founder David Sye, here’s part 2, where we’re sat just after dinner, talking about why he doesn’t give a shit for yoga, being threatened with a lynching at an anti-fur event and the future of the collective consciousness.

Back in November I spent a week in Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands at a yoga retreat, as part of a humanitarian campaign called Yogabeats. The objective, via raising £17,000 – to pay for visas and a safe passage out of the West Bank – through crowdfunding and other means of fundraising, was to bring […]

Long time no blog. Where have I been? Oh, just doing some stuff. In any case, there’s a few special treats to end the year with, including the video above with Rabbi Jacob Weiss of human rights organisation, Rabbis for Palestine.

At a pro-Palestinian protest yesterday I couldn’t help but notice tourists walking past with furrowed brows and perplexed glances. They’d noticed something a little odd at a rally that is predominantly in the hearts and minds of Arabs belonging to a monotheistic faith. The longest humanitarian crisis of modern times is a daily reminder and […]

At the time of writing, Khader Adnan, a Palestinian baker from the West Bank village of Arabeh, near Jenin has been on hunger strike for 64 days in protest to him being detained without trial, charge, evidence levelled against him or questioning.

In November 2002, former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon demanded that the Bush administration should turn its full attention on Iran “the day after” the Iraq invasion was over. True to form with the tail wagging the dog – and its clear to know full well who does what within Congress – the drums of […]
