Help Meat Free Monday Make A NEW Video - Tuesday, July 22, 2014

To celebrate five years of Meat Free Monday the campaign is looking for your help to make a new fan video.

If you'd like to get involved, pick a line or two from Paul's song ‘Meat Free Monday’ (or pick every line if you want!) and take a photo of yourself with it. You could write the words on a piece of paper; draw them in the sand; make them out of fruit and veg; make something with the words on; do something on your computer – remember, the more creative your photo, the more chance you have of it being included. Feel free to involve friends, family and colleagues too! We will pick our favourites and turn them into a video for the song.

George Harrison Memorial Tree Overrun and Killed By... Beetles - Tuesday, July 22, 2014

In a strange, ironic twist of fate, the pine tree planted in 2004 in memory of George Harrison in Los Angeles will need to be replanted because the original tree died as a result of insect infestation.

From the Los Angeles Times: "The memorial tree in Griffith Park had grown to more than 10 feet tall as of 2013, but LaBonge said the tree beetle onslaught was too much for the tree. Trees in Griffith Park have occasionally been the victims of bark beetles and ladybug beetles, among other tree-unfriendly creatures."
