Welcome back for semester two, and hello to all the new members!
For the second week of semester, UMSS is happy to welcome back Fiona Patten, who will be giving a talk about religion, politics, and lobby groups. Fiona Patten is the Convenor of the Australian Sex Party, a civil liberties party that was formed in 2009. The Sex Party has referred to itself as “the major minor party in Australian politics”, having performed very well in their first federal and state elections.
When: 1pm, Wednesday August 3
Where: Lowe Theatre, Redmond Barry Building
This event is free and open to the public. However, to support UMSS and help it grow, we ask that you consider signing up for a membership on the day ($1 for union members, $2 for non-members, $4 for non-students). We will also be selling UMSS t-shirts for $20 for members.
This event is brought to you by the Freethought University Alliance. Additionally, Fiona Patten will also be giving talks at other Victorian universities during the same week.
