On the 12th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, fellow pacifist activist Albert Beale and myself picketed the embassy of the then USSR about the war.
It being just after Gloom Day no one else was willing to join us with the protest.
Of course the embassy was closed that day, but we did manage to hand in a letter of protest.
It might also be added that for several years such protests had taken place in Denmark.
Given the current situation in Afghanistan, I wonder just how much different things would be right now if more activists had taken up the issue at the time.
