Oh, how six months fly. It seems just yesterday that the Clog covered the poor luck [1]of Berkeley’s star-crossed activist/ex-tree sitter Tristan Anderson. For those of you who don’t remember, some real nasty wrong place, wrong timeliness brought Anderson into unwelcome contact with an Israeli tear gas canister in Gaza the West Bank village of Nil’inĀ and he has been hospitalized in Israel ever since.

This Sunday, friends of Anderson are holding a benefit [2] to raise money for the cost of his recovery. It will take place at the La Pena Cultural Center, 3105 Shattuck Avenue at 8 p.m. Drop a donation of $5 to $20 (or more, we presume, is OK) and expect live musical and spoken word performances and an art auction. It is sponsored by Friends of Tristan and Palestine and the International Solidarity Movement.
