Newsletter – Week Beginning 22 October 2012

October 22, 2012 in main, news by Martin Lennon

Hey everybody,

It’s with a heavy heart I have to tell you I won’t be coming to the meeting tomorrow, I’m away on holiday. Don’t fear though, I’ll be back next week. In the mean time you guys are being left in the capable hands of our own Elena.

This Week’s Meeting

We’re changing up the format this week and screening ‘Blood on the Mobile’. It shows the connection between our phones and the civil war in the Congo. Director Frank Poulsen travels to DR Congo to see the illegal mine industry with his own eyes. He gets access to Congo’s largest tin-mine, which is being controlled by different armed groups. It comes highly recommended by the Conflict Free Campus Campaign and our own Ruth.

It’s at our usual time of Tuesday at 5pm, but we’ll be in the luxurious surroundings of Boyd Orr Room 412.

Coming Up

– Our Dialectic Society event is on 21st November, if any of you guys have any contact with groups interested in Consumer Ethics, give us a shout.
– On Wednesday we’re having a bake sale on Library Hill. Jana will give you details tomorrow
– Our Poster Competition for the Secret Policeman’s Ball is now live. If you guys have ideas for a poster send them to,uk for your chance to get 2 free tickets!

See you guys next week!
