Due to some serious technical and other problems – like the sickness of one speaker and turnout! – one of the talks that was to be given on the afternoon of Sunday, April 24, will now be given on Monday, May 2 at 6pm, in the Otago Room at the Clubs and Societies building, 84 Albany Street, Dunedin. This is the talk on The Road to the Rising. We’ll also be showing the promised newsreel footage.
We won’t be doing any postering ourselves for this meeting, so if you know anyone who would be interested in coming along please inform them of this event.
We can also send an electronic copy of a poster for the Monday event, which folks can run off and stick on workplace or other noticeboards.
Also, if you would like to go on the mailing list for Irish politics events in Dunedin, drop a line to us. There will shortly be a NZ Clann éirígí facebook page, so look out for that too.
Some of us are keen to organise regular talks and film showings on the struggle for national and social liberation in Ireland, so do get in touch.
We are also looking at ways of linking up the cause of workers in Ireland and NZ, for instance maybe organising a talk on ‘James Connolly and the NZ working class’.
