Nothing compares 2 U

On 21 September, 80-year-old Indian peace activist Satish Kumar marked the International Day of Peace by completing a 50-mile walk from the source of the Thames to Oxford. He then helped to launch a three-day Resurgence Festival on the theme ‘One Earth, One Humanity, One Future’.

In 1962, Satish walked for nuclear disarmament and peace from India to Moscow, Paris, London and Washington DC.

In August, Satish stood down as editor-in-chief at Resurgence & Ecologist after 43 years of editing the magazine, over half his life.
