Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

It’s okay, you made it through the winter break with the presents and parties and all that nonsense – now you can just kick back and look forward to another term of GU Amnesty fun (and activism). Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait another week for a proper meeting though.

As dissertations deadlines loom and resolutions are struggled to be maintained, we figure we can all do with a week to get back into the term time flow. So next Tuesday we’ll be back as usual at Committee Room 1 at 5pm. There is plenty to do this term including the launch of our new website and Facebook Page, a weekend away at Action For Change, more action on Conflict Minerals much more and last but not least the Secret Policeman’s Ball!

You are also cordially invited to Jim’s Bar tomorrow at 8pm for a wee informal social.

Welcome back,


First Week Back!

Hello everyone,

Happy New Year to you all. I hope you’ve had a nice relaxing time off and are back feeling refreshed for a new term filled with Amnesty fun! There are lots of exciting things coming up over the next few weeks and whilst essay deadlines and exams are still nice and far off, I hope you’re all as excited as I am!
