I thank Physicians and Scientists for Global Responsibility for offering to host these lectures in recognition of Bob’s work for PSGR from 1998 to 2008. And I thank everyone who helped make it possible to post them here.

 

Bob died on 5 December 2008. In the previous decade, he had given public lectures throughout New Zealand on a wide range of scientific, social justice and human rights issues, beginning with genetic engineering. The subjects covered were at the public’s request and given under the auspices of a number of different organizations.

 

The lectures are offered gratis. If you wish to use the material, please acknowledge your source and continue to use Bob’s work without charge in the interests of the public’s right to be independently informed. If you would like to recognize his input, I ask you to consider donating to PSGR (1), Quaker Peace and Service Aotearoa/New Zealand (2) or Amnesty International (3 or any movement of your choice working towards social justice and peace. Every donation helps.

 

Bob was a Quaker and lived by the tenets of his faith. He opposed violence between people and nations, to other species and to our planet. He believed that true peace cannot be dictated; it can only be built on equality, social justice, respect, and co-operation between all peoples. He was passionate about the welfare of all beings, regardless of race or religion, with a special caring for women and children, and about the welfare of the world this generation would leave behind. Bob worked tirelessly to better that world.
