Not the usual kind of thing I'd post up in here, but this is quite an important one for me and the people involved. Plus, the line-up is actually SILLY!



The facebook event is here:

and some more blurb:

--

A celebration of the people's uprising in Egypt and the ongoing struggle for democracy. An uprising that has already deposed a tyrant of thirty years and now struggles onwards towards a democratic, universalist future.

We've decided the best way to show our support is, of course, to throw a huge warehouse party to celebrate the resilience and bravery of those involved in the wave of peaceful protests currently sweeping the North African and Near East regions.

This is a benefit party to raise money for the charity EAUK: January 25th Victims - who will be providing funds to those families who lost loved ones during the protests.

yalla!

:)

You're right, it's not just a benefit, but a tiny way of expressing solidarity as well.

Darned cockwombles.
How was this? Didn't make it in the end unfortunately :(

Out of interest, where did you advertise this (apart from Fb), cos never would have heard about it if it hadn't been for Dissensus! Keen to know about future such events....
