Great to see Drinking Liberally starting up again in New Zealand. And in a new city, Hamilton. Here’s the invite:
You are all cordially invited to the first meeting of Drinking Liberally, Hamilton.
Drinking Liberally is an informal, non-programmatic gathering of like-minded left-leaners, an opportunity to share you ideas while you share a drink. You don’t need to be a seasoned activist or policy wonk to join us in meeting new friends, reconnecting with old ones, and enjoying a stiff mix of socialising with a dash of politics.
The first meeting will be a bit of a get together to meet other progressive people, and to go over what we’re planning on doing for future events, and just to chinwag.
So come on down, we’re looking forward to meeting all of you!
Where: House on Hood, 27 Hood St, Hamilton
When: Tuesday 30th, 6pm
The fact that people are talking about Drinking Liberally again tells me that morale in the Left activist base is on the rise after a few tough years.
There’s nothing to stop people getting Drinking Liberally started up in other cities again. It’s pretty much just a matter of finding a venue, maybe organising a speaker, setting up a Facebook page, and asking your friendly Leftwing hub blog to tell everyone about it.
