Informal announcement, not yet at the "please forward around" stage, just

On the morning of Friday November 18th, 10am to 1pm, MEP Proinsias De Rossa
will be hosting an anti-swpat event, organised by IFSO, in Dublin city

That much is sure, the following is fairly-sure but can be changed:

De Rossa will open with a quick presentation of how the Directive looked
inside the parliament.  Someone from the IFSO committee will give an intro
to IFSO and FS.  I'll give a talk about the wins and failings of our work
which culminated in the rejection of the Directive.  We're planning to fly
in another speaker to give a swpat-related talk.  And it will all end with a
panel-style Q&A session.

At some point in the middle there may be a coffee break.

The venue will hold around 60, so we won't need a big crowd-building drive.

More details during the week.
