I’m new to this forum but on looking through past threads the expression “couldn’t organise a piss-up in a brewery” comes to mind. Last year there was supposed to be a meeting in Auckland on the 4 November about which there were many, many, many comments but as I understand it no action.
So… There will be a meeting of people concerned about men. It will start with lunch being served at 1pm on Saturday the 3rd of November 2018. There will be no alcohol at lunch. At 2pm the meeting will commence and the attendees will decide how formal the meeting will be and who (if anyone) to appoint as chair and scribe. The meeting will focus on what actions we can take to mitigate or eliminate harms being foisted on men by widely held but erroneous beliefs about men. It will be about strategy and action.
It will not be a talk-fest. At the meeting it will be decided how often to meet again. These meetings will be regular (say the first Saturday of every second month) and they will grow in popularity. After the meeting closes at 4pm, drinks will be served and we can network informally. At 5pm you go home. This is not a boozy party.
Please RSVP by no later than 5 October 2018 to this thread if you or your interested associates are going to attend and advise if you have any special dietary requirements. I will arrange the venue once I know the numbers attending. The cost to you for lunch, venue hire and post meeting drinks will be zero. I will pay for this initial meeting because human life is more important to me than money. Donations to offset my expenses will be accepted but not expected.
You have to give it to the feminists. They are damn good at organising themselves. Let’s show them what we can do when we put aside our petty differences and work together to save men’s lives.
