Rye members and contacts - an informal get together.

We're hosting an informal get together on Tuesday 2nd April.
This is a chance just to meet, talk, learn a little bit more about Hastings & Rye Palestine Solidarity Campaign and find out how you can get involved. We'll also be holding a 'round table' talk on the subject of 'Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions - what does it mean to me?' followed by an open discussion.

This is a great opportunity to get to know some like-minded folk, discuss issues and deepen your understanding and involvement with the campaign. We look forward to meeting you there!
