Am 26. April ist es soweit. Die, von Ali Hewson geleitete, Postkarten-Kampagne 'Shut Sellafield' nimmt ihren Lauf. Siehe dazu auch frühere News von U2tour.de. 'The Guardian' nutzt die Gelegenheit, um uns Ali Hewson, die meistens im Schatten von Bono stand ("one of the most famous men on the planet"), etwas näher vorzustellen. In diesem lesenswerten Artikel erfährt man einiges über Ali Hewson als politisch engagierte Frau, als Mutter und über ihr Verhältnis zu Bono.

Hier einige Auszüge daraus: "I have seen children born with deformities and dying in orphanages," says Hewson. "Children who have had their thyroid glands removed and will need to take medicine for the rest of their lives - if they can get it. And because radiation does not respect borders, in Ireland we are in the same position as Belarus. We did not ask for this nuclear power base to be built beside us, but we are just as vulnerable as the people of Britain." "It was having children, she says, that compelled her to act on Sellafield. "I started to wonder how safe it was for them to play on the beach or to swim in the sea or even to eat fish." "But with her husband now almost as well known as a campaigner on poverty and debt as he is as a rock star, have there been sensitive negotiations in the Hewson household about confusing the message?... ...Our relationship works because we have respect for each other and we are very fortunate in how things have worked out. We allow each other to pursue our goals. I wouldn't want to be married to someone who was not happy with what they were doing with their life and Bono wouldn't either - it works both ways."
