September is just around the corner, and we are gearing up for a number of events here in and around London. On the 7th there is a book signing at Housmans, the famous bookshop near Kings Cross, 6:30pm at 5 Caledonia Road, N1. I will talk about hemp in the UK, my research into hemp and Defra, and what the future holds for the UK as far as a hemp business. Copies of Hemp for Victory: History and Qualities of the World's Most Useful Plant will be on sale.
9 September is the day for 2 events, one, a hemp event in Glastonbury, the showing of Free Rob's film Super Hemp Me, whilst in London the great American Methodist theologian David Ray Griffin talks about US government false flag operations. The author of some 20 or more books, Griffin is well worth reading, recommended by no less a hemp activist than Woody Harrelson.
On the 10th Mass in Brixton will host a number of seminars from 11am to 5pm, at which Hemp for Victory and Griffin's books will be on sale, plus DVDs and CDs.
On the 11th there will be a service of rememberance at noon outside the US Embassy. One of the dedicees of Hemp for Victory is William Rodriguez, the last man out alive from the North Tower, the man whose story of sheer heroism is now begin made into a movie in the US.
BioRegional hosts an open house day on 12 September, at which a talk on hemp will be given at 4:30 pm.
On the 14th, the press launch for Hemp for Victory will take place between 11am and 1pm at the Prince of Wales theatre, Coventry Street in Leicester Square.
