Shanghai Noir

On July 12, 2019, Lights for Liberty will organize a vigil. This is their mission statement:

We are a coalition of people, many of whom are mothers, dedicated to human rights, and the fundamental principle behind democracy that all human beings have a right to life, liberty and dignity.

We are partnering with international, national, regional and local communities and organizations who believe that these fundamental rights are not negotiable and are willing to protect them.

On Friday July 12th, 2019, Lights for Liberty: A Vigil to End Human Detention Camps, will bring thousands of people to locations worldwide as well as to detention camps across country, into the streets and into their own front yards, to protest the inhumane conditions faced by refugees.

There are vigils already scheduled across the US as well as countries like Canada, Mexico, France, Israel, and the Netherlands. You can go to the Lights for Liberty website to donate money, find the event closest to you or organize your own event. I'll be at the vigil in Amsterdam at the American Consulate on the Museumplein starting at 7pm. Come by and say hello.

Politics have nothing to do with this week's blog post about an insignificant grain better known in the US as birdseed. But once upon a time in the Yellow River Valley, this grain was a food fit for an emperor. Here it is: Millet.

Politics is also sadly absent from the short story collection Hong Kong Noir. You may have already read the review I wrote for Bookish Asia. Here's the version for my own website: Ghost City.

This is my 10th newsletter and blog post before I fall off the edge of the earth. Tick tock, tick tock.
