There's an interesting meeting coming up in Cambridge "Congo: Conflict without end? – an open discussion" which should be useful to all of us with an interest on what's going on in that part of the world and the panel of speakers includes four experts and a journalist.

Another website, just for those who live in London this time - free London listings - very easy to use way to advertise your events or find out what's happening in your bit of London. Designed to promote mainly non-commercial events it should be a good tool for those who are promoting political events or community involvement.
