Final PWHCE events for 2004 

October Talk

On 27th October, Ted Lapkin of The Review will give a talk entitled, A Few Bad Men: Guantanamo Bay and the Geneva Conventions.

Although I agree with Ted's position that by the letter of the Geneva Conventions, some Guantanamo Bay inmates such as David Hicks and Mamdouh Habib have forfeited their rights, I personally believe that the most morally appropriate and sensible action for America (and Australia) would be to extend equivalent rights to such people anyway. Why? Because the way to fight fire is not with fire, but with water. We and the Americans ought to preserve our high moral ground wherever possible.

For this reason, I will be particularly interested to hear Ted's arguments. If you're in Melbourne on the 27th, I strongly encourage you to come along.




End of year banquet

The Annual PWHCE end of year banquet will take place on Saturday 27th November at Golden Triangle Thai/Cambodian/Burmese restaurant. This was the banquet venue for the Monarchist Alliance conference I was involved in organising earlier this year.
