Worldwide Vigil Reports - from Tel Aviv
October 1, 2003
About 40 people came last night to the alternative bookstore Salon Mazal in Tel-Aviv, to express solidarity with Mordechai. We heard an inspiring lecture by Aki Orr about the history of the atom bomb, which was informative and thought-provoking, even for us veterans. I'm sure that Mordechai would have approved, since he has always insisted that working for the abolition of weapons of mass destruction was as important to him as working for his release. There were lots of discussions taking place among the audience during the break. Afterwards, we saw the Israeli documentary film The Bomb in the Basement. A lot of participants signed a birthday card for Mordechai that we will send immediately in the hope that he gets it sometime close to his birthday.
Let's hope that this really is the last time that we mark Mordechai's imprisonment!
