The recent Justice in the Pub night explored the topic of climate change and was introduced by Paul Fogarty. Those present sat around and learnt/talked about:
* global warming,
* global dimming,
* greenhouse gases
* the Kyoto Protocol - and why out government didn't sign it
* what we as individuals can do to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and where we can get more information about the issue.

Justice in the Pub is an informal opportunity for people of all ages to come together in a relaxed environment to learn about and discuss a current social or environmental justice issue and is held on the first Tuesday of every month, at Bridie O'Reilly's in Brunswick (Corner of Sydney Rd and Brunswick Rd, Brunswick).

The next Justice in the Pub will be on Tues 2nd August. 8pm - 9:30 (or come along at 7:30 for a pre-justice drink)
Trish Hevern (an Eddie Rice volunteer) will introduce the topic of
"The G8 Summit: What happened? Were the Millenium Development Goals met?"
and provide information and resources for further discussion.

The aims of JIP are
* to come together, meeting new people
* to learn more about a topic that we may be interested in, but probably wouldn't bother to learn about by ourselves
* to have a chat
* To look at how we can make a difference (if you'd like to)

Everyone is welcome - all age groups, all levels of knowledge on the topics, from anywhere.

JIP is an initiative of Paul Fogarty who expressed the desire to explore further with others some of the issues raised in these bulletins.
