Well some bad news and some news news.
Maryam Namazie will not be joining us as previously announced, but she will be attending a Law Soc event in 2010, so we’ll at least get to see her.
Also, our next event is Senator Bacik, who will be speaking at 1pm in Arts on the subject of religion in the Irish education system. She’s a fantastic speaker and is the only openly atheist member of either the Dail or the Senate.
This will be our last speaking event of 2009, but next semester we have Fintan O’Toole, Luke Flanagin, Ian O’Doherty, and more TBA (although the two journalists are hard to get a hold of!).
