Marburger Bildarchiv - A Great Archive



I was living in Marburg for 19 years - it is a wonderful old university town with gingerbread houses. The Grimm Brothers used to live there - and the whole town is like a fairy tale. Many of my good dear friends still live there ... a great place. And the "Marburger Bildarchiv " is one of the best collections of historic images worldwide. happy to share its link with you.

STOP THE BLOODSHED

Dear Friends,

As the awful civilian death toll rises above 1000 in Lebanon and Israel, people around the world are seeking a place to voice their frustration and concern. Over the last 4 days, 200,000 people from 148 countries have signed the ceasefire petition. At this rate, we could soon be the largest global online petition in history.

The pressure is working. The global outcry over this crisis has pushed the Ambassadors to the UN Security Council to work around the clock to achieve an immediate ceasefire.

The latest word is that the Council may be close to a final vote today or tomorrow, but we've been this close before and negotiations have fallen apart. We need more pressure now to close the deal.

Please forward this email on, spread the word to your friends, family and colleagues, post a link on your blog, bring up the campaign in discussions, and urgently encourage people around you to join this global wave of protest by signing up at the link below:

The pressure is working. Let's ratchet it up.

With hope,
