Announcements for the MRD: Dow’s Political and Economic Discussion Club
This week the MRD has a lot to cover with topics ranging from the Yellow Jacket Strikes across France and Belgium to the G20 meeting in Buenos Aires; Mr. Chambers may also be stopping by so that we may discuss the dangers of the pseudo-left politics and their similarities with Stalinism. Those interested in these topics or have other political, economic or social matters and discussion topics of their own to bring to the table should plan to meet this week from 3:00 to 4:15 after school on Tuesday in the Little Theater. And always remember, anyone with an idea for a discussion topic for the MRD can email Luke Mavis so that it can be considered for the next meeting.
Let’s grow stronger together.
