Al Marder from US Peace Council at the 70th Anniversary Rally in Moscow

Friday after greetings and drinks and hors d'oeuvre at the Moscow Peace Fund, they took us to a BIG WWII monument for a concert. After the concert Al was approached by journalist for LifeNews, a TV channel, for an interview. He and the journalist sat in front of a statue in what may be called the hall of tears. This evening one of the organizers gave me the URL for the broadcast: <>. Of course the audio interview, except for a few lines, is in Russian. Maybe you'll understand some of it.  If you open this page in Google Chrome you can get a written not so good translation.

Interesting discussions on Russian peace movement or rather lack of one yesterday and today.  

Tomorrow, Sunday, we return home.
