Activism

More events of the more active sort. Talks and lectures are useful and fun, but nothing beats getting out there and doing something about it.

Stop War demonstration on Syria – TOMORROW

Pavel, a regular from the meetup, will be attending a Stop War demonstration this Saturday 31st. Still you ask? I did to, Pavel writes: Yes, still – 272 MPs voted for the operation Quite.
