Down the Paraná

I’m uploading this post from Mendoza, on New Year’s Eve. We just arrived and it is 6 in the morning. In case I don’t get the chance to update the blog before 2.1., I’d just like to say that Buenos Aires and San Luis have been really fantastic and, well, see you in the mountains!

Resisting violence in Resistencia

Argentina is the last country on the route of the World March. For me, it’s the 12th country in a route that took me through 4 continents; for some, who started in New Zealand, it’s approximately the 35th country, within 3 months.

From Asunción, we travelled (again with a bus) to Resistencia, in the province […]

Young power in Asunción

Fabio and Nicolas, the dudes from Asuncion, came to pick us up from the hotel in Foz de Iguazu at 5 a.m. on Christmas morning. We had spent the 24th in Foz, visiting one of world’s natural wonders, the Iguazu Falls (Iguazu is guarani and means “big water”) and holding a free day. Foz de […]

The World March review

Just before the end of each year it is customary to make a review and give awards; the best sportsperson, the best film, the funniest joke, etc.

I thought it would be fun to do something similar with the World March. With only 1 country left for me (Argentina) here is my personal review of […]

La red de acompañantes de la Marcha Mundial, no solo se ha montado por la ruta del Pacífico. También por el Atlántico, nos acompañan de forma discontinua, varios de ellos. Fotógrafos, curiosos, periodistas, viejos amigos, militantes que solo disponían de unos días…

Sin duda la más famosa de todos es Petra, que además tiene sobrada […]

Renata Tadei fue miembro del Equipo Base desde Wellington hasta Roma. Allí se quedó porque así lo tenía previsto y porque además, su madre enfermo y tuvieron que operarla. Por cierto espero que siga bien.

El caso es que, a pesar de tenerla añadida en Skype y Facebook, no había vuelto a hablar con ella […]

Weltweiter Marsch für Frieden und Gewaltfreiheit

ab Costa Rica 9.12.2009

Ich komme um 21.30 in San Jose Cosa Rica an. Diego und Mario holen mich ab. Wir kennen uns nicht aber es fühlt sich an als würde ich gute Freunde treffen. Im Auto auf dem Weg in die Stadt erzählen wir unsere Geschichten wie einem […]

Sao Paulo has 19 millions of inhabitants. Admittedly we could not bring them all to march with us, but the cameramen and reporters of several national television channels marched backwards in front of us and on the following day we heard from the Brazilian organizing team that since the march arrived to Brazil, there had […]

Nite and day in Rio and Niteroi

After two weeks break – one in the USA and another here in Rio – I’m joining the Base Team again. Please excuse my ambitiously long blog entry – after a long pause from the blog, this is probably some kind of a compensation.

Myself and Petra Klein, who is now accompanying the Base Team […]
