Back to the club yesterday — and Zack the Russian

Yesterday morning I was among the first people on the planet to witness Zack the Russian’s act of defiance against Putin and all he represents! I have since posted this in the sticky post about Russian vloggers. I shared it with some friends. My former colleague at Sydney High and Order of Australia Medal awardee for services in Bali at the time of the bombing there, Russell Darnley, is one who through Twitter has been spreading it further.

Russell is an alumnus, you may say, of the antiwar anticonscription movement in Australia at the time of Vietnam.

Russell when he was 18 years old. “I’ve written about the Vietnam War era in two of my books: Seen and unseen: a century of stories from Asia and the Pacific, and
Beyond Borders: conversations across boundaries.”

So he instantly saw the parallel.
