If you’re down in Wellington and of the Left, you’ve probably heard people talking about Drinking Liberally New Zealand. Drinking Liberally is an international network that grew out of the US, where people from throughout the Left, greenies, union-types, feminists, anarchists, Labourites, and everyone else, get together at a bar in their town, have a drink, listen to a speech from a guest speaker, and talk about politics and ways we can work together.
Drinking Liberally New Zealand is launching on Wednesday next week (the 21st) from about 6pm at the Southern Cross. It’s fantastic to have Nandor Tanczos as the first guest speaker and it should be a really good time.
So if you’re wanting to find a way to get more active in politics or you’re like me and you’re active but you keep on hearing about all this other great work other people are doing and thinking â€˜man, we could do some great stuff together’, then come along on Wednesday. It’s totally non-partisan and relaxed; it’s about having a good time and building ties. Hope to see you there (I’ll be the one with the beard, not it that that narrows things down much).
