STAR Meeting 9/10/13 October 11, 2013

Posted by starglasgow in Meetings, Uncategorized.

This weeks meeting, “How to win an argument on the asylum system”, was all about learning how to deconstruct and debunk the ignorant, and racist statements made about asylum seekers.  We covered all the basics from “They’re just here to steal our jobs” and”Asylum seekers get all nice the council houses”, to “Britians to full!” and even the, “Why don’t they just go home?”

The STAR committee also put together a leaflet that will be available here in case you couldn’t make the meeting but want a handy facts sheet!

We also discussed our choice of charity for the pub quiz!  Cast your vote here – http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WSP37G8
