Hastings to Brighton walk for peace

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Hare Krishna movement worldwide, the monks based in central London are this week making a pilgrimage in the form of a walk for peace from Hastings to Brighton. The walk began on bank holiday Monday in Hastings and is due to reach its destination at Brighton pier on Friday 3 June. Natasha Menon from the ISKCON temple in London explains the reasons for the pilgrimage.

Help local family save Javad from deportation

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about a young man called Javad and the any-day-now threat of his deportation back to Iran. To try and prevent this, a petition for the Home Office had been created by the family offering him a home and local people who know him. Signatures have been added to the petition, but more are needed – and I am writing again, to ask you to consider signing, if you haven’t as yet. With gratitude on behalf of all those connected to Javad, writes Zelly Restorick. I assure you 100% that this is a genuine situation about local people and their deep love for a young man they wish to protect and offer a safe haven.

A group of local volunteers have become victims of their own success this week as the empty shop they were using has been successfully let to a business.
