Mother’s Day, May 9th and Mother

A reflection by Tony Seed

(Updated May 15) In truth, I confess that I never paid much attention to Mother’s and Father’s Day, perhaps due to the commercialism and false sentimentalism. As I grow older I am more attentive, especially this year of the pandemic, and more and more appreciative and respectful of my own mother and her strength, and the value of life. On her passing at the age of 93, we said “she moved the earth.” Continue reading

This Day. Year of Maxim Gorky

(April 8, 2018) – Recently, Russia solemnly celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Battle of Stalingrad. The year of the anniversary of this victory is declared the year of Solzhenitsyn. In a country where the Great Victory is celebrated, there should be no honour to a person, to the one who spat on this victory without shame. But now in power is the oligarchy, for which there is nothing sacred, except for its own profits and power. Therefore, another important anniversary fell under an unofficial ban, was in the information blockade. Continue reading

Birds of a feather flock together

Having made the desert bloom and trying to wiping a people off the map, they are now helping the birds to fly

birds-of-a-featherThose shabby greenwashers par excellence, the racist and fascist Jewish National Fund, are naming a ‘migratory bird interpretive centre,’ after the Cackling Goose in Ottawa and using him as their corporate shill. The centre is located on land stolen from the Palestinian people and bordered by the Golan Heights, which belongs to embattled Syria. It is to be watered with Canadian tax-exempt ‘charitable’ donations from big capital, in the manner of the infamy called Canada Park.* “The prime minister has a strong love of animals: cats, dogs, pandas,” one Zionist told the Toronto Star, trying to explain the connection. “It plays off his whole love of animals.”

The macabre and cynical association caused me to dwell on the Canada Goose (Branta canadensis), though the Cackling Goose is a distinct species or maybe even a sub-species. Really. I live on the migratory north-south bird flypath over the waters of Georgian Bay, part of Lake Huron and the Great Lakes that separate Canada from the USA. When I first moved here, I was initially in awe of their seemingly majestic flying V-shaped wedge and began to watch them more closely each spring and fall. How to ‘interpret’ them? They always fly in a pack. In nature, birds of a single species do in fact frequently form swarming flocks. Continue reading
