Meeting Today (30/03/11)

Posted by EuanBenzie on 30th March 2011

Hi all,

As usual, the meeting today will take place at 7.30pm in the bar of the Belmont Cinema. It’s a really important meeting, as we have our first hustings debate on the 12th of April. We’ll be going over the party platform, previous election broadcasts and the manifesto from the General Election of 2010 and talking about how we can apply this to our Holyrood election campaign. We have two branch members on the North East Regional List, so come out and support!

Thanks,

Aberdeen SSP

Also, there’s a debate happening at Aberdeen University tomorrow about the Egyptian Revolution which we’ve all been witnessing on the news. Details follow below.

Location KCF22 (King’s College)

 

More info Egypt has been the talk of the whole world for the past few weeks. Demands for political reforms by the Egyptian people are overwhelming and unprecedented.This will be an open discussion to discuss the roots of this revolution and forecast Egypt’s future after President Mubarak.

For those of you unfamiliar with King’s College, the room KCF22 is located inside the Quadrangle, adjacent to the Chapel. If you go down College Bounds towards the High St., the Chapel is on your left. As you face the chapel, there’s an archway to the right. Go through the archway and you’re in the Quad. The doors around the Quad tell you where the rooms are.
 
Hope to see you there!

Metting on 12/01/11 (Today!).

Posted by EuanBenzie on 11th January 2011

Happy New Year, everyone!

To kick start 2011, the Aberdeen branch of the Scottish Socialist Party will be meeting next Wednesday, the 12th of January at 7:30pm, in the bar downstairs at the Belmont Cinema. Like all branch meetings, this is an open meeting, so anyone who is interested in the SSP or socialism/left-wing politics in general is welcome to come. There won’t be a set agenda, so the floor is open for you to discuss anything you wish.

If you’ve been thinking about coming along to meetings, this will be a great opportunity to learn more about socialism in Aberdeen and our plans for the Scottish Election in May of this year. It’ll be really informal, so don’t be shy – we look forward to meeting other socialists!

Hope to see you there.
