As I Walked Out One End-summer Day

As I Walked Out One End-summer Day


In 1935, the English poet and writer Laurie Lee walked from his landing at Vigo in Spain, to Madrid, a journey made famous in his book “As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning” - a distance of some 440 miles. Laurie subsequently walked to the southern coast, leaving Spain briefly, to return and fight in the Spanish civil war for justice and against oppression.

80 years later, in late-September 2014, I too walked from Vigo to Madrid, dressed in "Laurie Lee/Free Palestine Walk" T-shirts - a political walk to symbolise another fight for justice and against oppression - the Palestinians’ fight for justice against Israeli oppression.

I hope that my trip may inspire others around the world to carry out similar actions in support of the Palestinian cause.

I have written, in the past few years, a number of articles to convey the stark reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as opposed to the cosy lies of numerous Zionist myths. These are set out below.

One of the four specially-designed "Laurie Lee/Free Palestine Walk" T-shirts I wore in my walk across Spain is currently on sale on Ebay. All proceeds of the sale go to Newcastle Palestine Solidarity Campaign, who will reimburse the expenses of my journey only out of such proceeds.
