Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

Fukushima Mothers To Be Silenced? Not If We All Speak!

Do you support free speech?

Welcome the #Occupation?

Are you anti Nuke?

Are you pro Mom?

Answer yes to any one of these and you need to sign THIS immediately: a petition underway to prevent the eviction of the Fukushima Mothers from their encampment outside Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI).

Be seeing you.


  1. Problem is that you sign one single Aavaz petition and they never let you off again (typical destructive cult tactic): you can't unsuscribe and they count you as "member" - While the Fukushima mothers' plea is 100% legitimate, I won't support Aavaz again with my signature nor mirroring their scam.

  2. oh REALLY, IS THAT SO?! I got you into this -- i will do my damnedest to get you out!!!

  3. I don't think I signed first to Aavaz because of you: I probably signed in sympathy with Palestinians or something, long before knowing of your blog. Later I tried to sign out because I was much less interested in the Dalai Lama, you know, and could not. Since then they go straight to my spam folder but I haven't been able to unsubscribe.

    I have read now and then that they are a scam NGO: abusing good causes for their own purposes, whichever they are.

    Just google "Aavaz scam" and you'll get some answers.
