Dr Mike Rubenach is the Greens candidate for Herbet. He will be talking to us about religion and politics and also educating us about some of the finer details of Greens policies. As many of you are aware the Australian Christian Lobby has funded a spin campaign against the Greens labeling them anti-Christian. The election is this Saturday so don’t miss your chance to have your questions answered.
When: Thursday 19 August
Please note that our regular meeting on Tuesday night has been postponed to Thursday as Mike is unable to make it Tuesday. Other than that the time and place are still the same: DB23-004 at 7pm.
