Petra Whiteley


I was born in the Czech Republic in 1975. I studied Economics, Czech, English and Literature. I come from a family with history in political activism, although my grandfather was jailed for his political opinions during the 1950's, the family has always leaned towards the left wing. I emigrated to England in 1993 and have worked in a variety of jobs. I've lived in Berkshire, Devon - where I have been involved with politics of ICC (International Communist Current), although they are not my political conviction, those being of anarcho-communism, it has been a great experience. Presently I am living in North Dorset. I am passionate about poetry, literature, journalism (such as of Robert Fisk and John Pilger), art, science and music as well as politics and history.
