As with the document library, the images are undergoing some reorganisation to get them better indexed; a set of image galleries will appear over the next months which will include photos not used within articles.
We have a significant number of new documents to catalogue and make available including collections from Peter Cox (including much material on the Peace movement) and Peter Frings (especially covering early Ecology Party and the members newsletter) as well as miscellaneous other documents. Getting through this backlog will be a major focus over the next month or two including to continue to work through the Green Line archive which needs scanning and indexing.
Articles in preparation include work on Green CND, Green Gatherings, more on the Green Fields at Glastonbury, a look at early local election successes by Ecology Party and details of the 1979, 1983 and 1987 General Election campaigns.
We are keen to extend the Green Pioneers section - if you fancy writing 300 words introducing an early green thinker, writer or activist predating 1972 who you are keen to see recognised then please feel free to send us a contributions.
We offer the following suggestions as ideas to help, but your own favourites would be ideal as well:
- William Blake
- Murray Bookchin
- Karl Marx
- Prince Kroptokin
- Lady Eve Balfour
- Barry Commoner
Let us know if you'd like to do someone. 300 factual words is all it takes.
