[OPIRG-EVENTS] The G8's plans for Africa - recolonisation, "development" & NEPAD

Global Democracy Ottawa (GDO) invites you to a follow up on last

In addition to Tuesday May 14, we have blocked out the following
dates for similar evenings at St Paul's University.

Wednesday May 22
Thursday May 30
Monday June 3
Tuesday June 11
Wednesday June 19

There will be two continuous strands we will pursue, with short
talks from invited speakers on African issues, and on the G8

Each evening will build on the previous ones, so we invite you
to attend as many as possible.

We expect some of the gatherings to include African foods.

Anyone interested can join with us in the planning by leaving a
message for Global Democracy Ottawa at 237-0730 or email info@gdo.ca
