This will be no ordinary history month. With over 15 ideas already floating round from ‘Lovers Rock & Roll Valentines cabaret’ to ‘Be Careful Who You Sleep With (in case they’re treated badly by management)’, from LGBT and the Holocaust to LGBT and the Cuts, From Stonewall to Millbank-a history of LGBT protesting and art exhibitions,  ULU’s LGBT History month will reach all parts of the London Non-Scene.

Come and help plan, bring your ideas, invite your societies to do joint events and stay for dinner and socialising after.

5pm ULU, Clare’s office 2nd floor. Ask at reception if you cant find us.

3) ) From Millbank to Manchester – London Students go to NUS demo in Manchester

As you may be aware on Saturday 29th January there are two demonstrations; one in London, one in Manchester.

To show solidarity with our fellow students and trade unionists  up north ULU and the LSA will be joining forces with UCU, NUS and the Trades Union Congress (TUC) in solidarity for a mass protest and rally in Manchester on Saturday 29th January.

The demo – A Future that works is intended to highlight important issues affecting the youth of Britain such as access to education, the scrapping of EMA and youth unemployment rates.

ULU will be sending coaches of students up to Manchester for the demonstration, and we hope as many of you as possible will be able to attend.  In order to gauge an idea as to how many coaches we need to book, please reply to campaigns@ulu.lon.ac.uk by this Friday 21st January and let us know if you are planning on joining us in solidarity.

Tickets will be £10 per person, however we do not want any one to be unable to attend and therefore tickets will be subsidised or sponsored for those who are unable to afford the cost.

The coaches aim to depart from ULU, at 7 am to arrive in Manchester in time for the march.  The coaches will return back to London for approx. 8pm.

Please let us know if you are planning to attend so that we can book the coaches and ensure that as many people as possible are able to take part.

4) Holocaust Memorial Day report back to ULU coming soon.

To attend the Berlin trip go to https://ulucampaigner.wordpress.com/2010/08/26/taking-ulu-to-holocaust-memorial-day-berlin/

The week or so after we will do an evening report back. We would like to make a night of it. We need your help.

Does your Klezmer band want to take part? Can you cook Kosher? Want to help in any other way?

Email campaigns@ulu.lon.ac.uk to help out.
