Local Happenings - New Semester of Activism

I've been slacking lately. This is my first post since December 23rd. Without campus activism to write about and with all the holiday shenanigans, I just haven't had much time or much subject matter to write about (even though bad news never seems to stop; I just don't always have the energy to tackle those problems). Second semester at BSU begins next week, though, so blog posts will become regular once again. First of all, Amnesty International meetings resume next Thursday at 5:00 pm in the Foote Room of the Student Union Building. That is January 12th for those who, like me, haven't purchased an '06 calendar yet. We'll be discussing where our energy for this semester will be directed and formulating plans to visit Portland for the 2006 Amnesty International Annual General Meeting. On Monday, January 9th the Idaho Progressive Student Alliance will be meeting at 10:00 am in the lounge across from Moxie Java in the SUB. The Progressive Advocacy Training event will be discussed. Finally, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Human Rights Celebration will begin on January 16th, a Monday, with a march to the Capitol Building. The human rights week continues until January 21st. On Friday, January 20th journalist and author Charlayne Hunter-Gault will give the keynote address for the week. She is known for being one of the first two African-American students to be admitted to the University of Georgia. You can access an entire schedule of events at mlk.boisestate.edu.
