Friends, Students, Activists,
Here we go again for another week of GU Amnesty fun. We’re back in our usual time and place, Tuesday 5pm in QMU Committee Room 1, and we’ve got a typically full and diverse meeting planned.
After seeing ‘Blood in the Mobile’ last week I know I’m feeling a bit more informed on conflict minerals and raring to go with it. Just as I’m writing this we’ve gotten a reply ffrom one of our Freedom of Information Requests. Updates will follow at tomorrow’s meeting.
This Week’s Meeting
It’s a veritable smorgasbord of a meeting this week:
– I’ll be doing a presentation on Forced Evictions. It’s related to the Roma Rights issue of a few weeks ago but in a more global context. – Louise, eager for your poster competition entries, will be doing a poster brainstorming session. – Robert and Cat will be doing some filming for Cat’s activist video – Ruth and Siuan will be making a backdrop for our Conflict Minerals campaign video
And last but not least – We’ll be pulling names out of a hat for who want to go collect our Raise-Off Award at the student conference in London.
– 6th November – Guest Speaker at main meeting – Organ Harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China – 7th November Glasgow Human Rights Group Talk – 11th or 18th November – Pub Quiz in Jim’s Bar – 16-18th November UK Student Conference – 21st November Dialectic Panel Dicsussion – 27th November SPB Screening and Christmas Party
– 9th February Secret Policeman’s Ball!
I’ll see you guys tomorrow,
