International Symposium of Parliamentarians – Saturday 17 April 12pm noon BST (UK time)

There will be an international public symposium of parliamentarians and legislators who will discuss and examine the issues at stake in the Julian Assange case. The event will also be live-streamed by the Don’t Extradite Assange campaign on their YouTubeTwitter and Facebook channels.

All major Human Rights and Free Press Organizations have opposed Assange’s extradition including Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders, Committee to Protect Journalists, Human Rights Watch and many more. Newspaper Editorial boards including The Guardian, New York Times, El, Pais, Der Speigel, Le Monde, as well as major Journalist Unions including the UK’s NUJ and Australia’s MEAA have voiced their strong opposition to the proceeding against Assange and the threat it posses to Journalism and the Free Press.

11 Dec: UNSW Symposium: Limits to growth: Beyond the Point of Inflexion - UNESCO Mathematics of Planet Earth event

Most symposiums in Australia, even in universities, get taken over by the growth merchants, however, this looks like a really good line up, so maybe some sanity will prevail. The School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW is hosting a Symposium on the Limits to Growth on the 11th of December (early bird tickets now available). This event is the final event of the UNESCO Year of the Mathematics of Planet Earth. It would be greatly appreciated if you could please pass this message around to any students or staff that may be interested.
