Big News

I’m ecstatic to announce a number of things.

Firstly, Maryam Namazie, the leader of the Council for ex-Muslims in Britain and of the One-Law-For-All movement will be joining us sometime in early 2010.

Secondly, I can announce times for Michael Nugent: Thursday October 8th, 6pm. Due to Lawsoc’s event with Noam Chomsky, we’ve decided to move Senator Bacik’s slot to another time TBA.

Thirdly, it isn’t confirmed yet, but Ian O’Doherty has indicated that he would like to come and speak with us at some point during the year.

This is going to be a most exciting year, and I predict we’ll be one of the most active societies on campus, as we plan to hold events for three weeks out of every month, including at least one guest speaker.

It is my pleasure to announce two confirmed speakers, Paul O’Donoghue, founder of the Irish Skeptics society, and Dick Spicer* of the Humanist Association of Ireland. Dick will be speaking at our inaugural event, and Paul some time later in the first semester.

We also have a preliminary agreement with a major international personality to speak in second semester, though this person’s identity will not be released until confirmed.
