Newsletter – Week Beginning 15 October 2012

October 15, 2012 in main by Martin Lennon

Hey everybody,

We’ve got a slightly less busy line up this week. Obviously we’re still going to be in* QMU Committee Room 1* at* 5pm* on *Tuesday* for our usual meeting, but other than that there’s not too much planned. Btw, I’m writing to you from our shiny new email address, which we’ve got just before our website gets a revamp. So if you just can’t get enough GU Amnesty, checkout ** over the next few weeks while we get some more fun (and human rights related) content up.

*This Week’s Meeting:*

Although we’re going to be keeping up our Conflict Free Campus campaign, we’re also going to be looking at other things this week. It’s good to keep it fresh so we’ll be doing a pretty broad range:

– I’ll be talking about* Roma Rights* (against one of the few surviving forms of socially acceptable racism) and there will be a campaign action on that – *Siuan, Jana *and* Louise* are going to be making some *GU Amnesty merch* that we’re going to sell for the student raise off – *Ruth, Cat *and* Robert* are going to be working on the Conflict Free Campus *campaign video* and hopefully get some actual filming done

*Coming Up:*

– We are currently planning an event with the *Dialectic Society* on ethical products/consumerism for the *21st Novermber*. If you know any groups that might want to come along (enviromentalists, vegan groups, fair trade groups) please get in touch with us – *Bake sale next week*. Jana is keen to have our first old fashioned bake sale of the year and it looks like it’ll be next *Wednesday*. So if you enjoy *cake* or general bakery foodstuffs, give her your chat. – We are also planing a *pub quiz funraiser* in the *near future*. Me and Nathan are writing it so it’s porbs best to start reading up on * Twilight* and *Scottish football trivia*

See you tomorrow,
