Fall get-together and Catalan independence referendum

Will be at Lower Hume Park (New Westminster) starting at noon.

This get together will have the added bonus of following in real time what is happening in Catalonia. If politics are not discussed in polite company, then we are not polite!. Please bring your opinions and your contribution to the pot-luck. Heated discussions are encourage only limited by good will and a dash of self-deprecating humor. If the YES wins, we will celebrate madly. If it is a NO, then we will need to party to forget our sorrows.

And there will be activities for kids, so you can forget about them while discussing the benefits of an independent Catalonia or the status quo inside the Spanish monarchy. read more »
