syriaTuesday: 

I was in Syria for the second half of July this year as a part of an Australian delegation that visited hospitals, refugee camps and charities, as well as meeting government officials.

I’ll focus mainly on contrasting my experiences with the portrayal of Syria both by the western corporate media and by the western left.

I’d like to have as much time possible for Q&A – critical questions more than welcome.

Starts at 7pm, entry is free, refreshments by donations.

Clases de español libre

Get the basics of Spanish and something else in a relaxed environment. All levels are welcome but we will start from the very basics. We will discuss culture too. All with a focus on Latin America. Planning on inviting compañeros from different countries to talk about their local Spanish and culture, including some food if feeling really inspired maybe?

Come and share what you know, your ideas to make it fun, your questions, thoughts, bring a friend, feel free to suggest topics in advance.

Every Saturday starting 17.30 until we get tired (i.e. 19.00 app).
