The next BIG anti-globalisation activity will be in Genoa, protesting
at the G8 conference in Genoa, July 20-22. UK activists are hoping to
get 40,000 people from the UK to Italy for it. Locally, UEA activist are
planning to get a large number of people from Norwich going, hopefully
hiring a few coaches for the trip. Some people may prefer looking for
Easyjet / Go / Ryanair flights to Italy.

We had a first meeting on Wednesday. We decided that despite it being
in the summer, ie not term time and students away, it would be worth
getting people together and advertising. Students may choose to come
back to Norwich and join the coach, or come from their homes. Also, we
want to include as many campaigning groups as possible in this, and
obviously, this isn't just about students.

We're going to have another meeting for anyone who wants to get active
on Wednesday, February 28, at UEA union house, room 1.33 (upstairs).
Also, we hope to launch it with a big event during environment week on
campus, sometime in the week of March 19-23. If anyone wants to be
involved, or link us with other groups PLEASE come along! Especially
good if you have organisational skills and will be around in July...


Mercy! It's the revolution, and me in my bathrobe!
