two year course in not

two year course in not only carpentry but basic use of a computer, drawing and design with the hopes that the graduates will return to their village to work in the shop. Tony Murland and his family live in England where they run a small auction house for antique tools. Along with the auction business Tony haunts the second hand stores and volunteers at a kind of “Salvation Army” conglomerate where he sorts tools and gathers a basic group of hand tools in sets which are gathered for shipment onto pallets. The bulk of the tools are sent to Africa for schools but since our meeting of some years back he has finally sent me a pallet of hammers, saws, rules, squares and levels. The tools are to be sent to Houston (to Casa Juan Diego, run by Mark and Louise Zwick. Now I need to figure out how to get them to Yaambajoch in Guatemala. My plan is to split the load between my friend Christian Szinc who runs Sueninos where they have a carpentry school and Yalambajoch where they hope to start training young people. I have also been working with Don Peschke publisher of August Home Publishing and owner of The Woodsmith Stores in Des Moines. In the past Mr. Peschke has been quite generous in donating new machine tools to us here at the Casa de Camillo Torres. When I get back to Des Moines I hope to speak with him about the tools needed at Yalambajoch as well. Nebraska. I have some work as an electrician lined up in Newton, Iowa with an earlier appearance in Milwaukee. For over 18 years in Central America and Mexico I took photos, sometimes as a stringer for agencies, mostly for my own selfish reasons. When younger I thought if the world could only see the results of War I might make a slight difference by taking photos of the refugees, of the massacres, of the mass graves. I didn’t change the world but I did get some good photos along the way. All of those black and white negatives and slides have been donated to Marquette University where I hope to visit and get started on cataloguing the works. While there I hope to stay with an activist friend Bob Graf and his wife. We hope that Araceli can find classes for her English, as well. Who knows what kind of a future we have, but we have been blessed. Our work with the poor continues, we are both more faithful than ever. Saludos de Chiapas P.S. We have a website in transition that is located at thechaipasproject.com … Or, we can be reached via email at flamerrichard@gmail. com. When younger I thought if the world could only see the results of War I might make a slight difference by taking photos of the refugees, of the massacres, of the mass graves. Finally, I hope to travel with Araceli to the U.S. in late March or April to Wisconsin, Iowa and 40/Penn Magazine/November 2017

The GOOD FIGHT Frank Cordaro has been fighting the government, the military, and any bad guys within reach for years and years, and years ... and years, and he keeps going “Coach Amadeo asked me 3 times in those 5 minutes if I knew what I was doing.” Notes from Jail … blood spilling at Pentagon Report by FC, Sept 1977 v.p. Folks, Prisoner 188-545, Frank Cordaro, writing home with some general information. Since Thursday afternoon (August 11) I have been in Dead Lock (single cell) in Washington, D.C. Jail– New Section. It is possible that I will be in Dead Lock (never out of the cell except for showers) until our arraignment and possible trial on August 19. To tell you the truth, I am quite comfortable. The cell is air-conditioned! It has a light which I can control myself, a nice firm bunk, a stool, a sink, and a small desk. At this point, I really welcome the solitude. However, one never knows whether or not paper will be given for writing, and they have threatened us with no books except what we have with us. I have only one, Peace Making, and I’m reading it slowly –after that, it could be a long haul. Meals are the college dorm type and they are brought to our cells. We have been put in Dead Lock 4 (as opposed to being members of the general prison population) because we refused to take blood tests and X-rays. Nine of our group are here at the D.C. jail. Five other men are at the Arlington jail, together with two women who were also arrested. This jail is a new facility, very modern! About 99% of the prison population is Black. The old D.C. jail was a very dangerous place– rape and other kinds of physical violence being very common. I do not know enough about this place yet to comment on the difference. It could be a blessing that we refused the blood tests and X-rays, “the hell you know is better than the unknown one ahead”. The Action Frank Cordaro being arrested in Des Moines, protesting drone targeting. There is so much to tell you! I’ll begin with the action itself–it stands out most in my mind right now. There were between fifty to one hundred people outside the Pentagon. Throughout the morning, we passed out leaflets to Pentagon workers reminding them of the anniversary of the dropping of the Bomb on November 2017/Penn Magazine/41
