Announcements for the MRD: Dow’s Political and Economic Discussion Club
The MRD will now be restarting our AP study time program the week we get back from Sring Break. Like last year, we will be working on American Government, Micro, and Macro Econ. testing; anyone interested can come to this weeks meeting for information on our procedures and focus. This week our normal discussion will be focusing on the jailing of whistleblower Chelsea Manning for her refusal to testify against Jullian Assange and Wikileaks and was thus held in contempt of court. The immediate protests in opposition to this move by the American government should manifest the importance of this event in relation to the freedom of the press and Democracy. If anyone has any ideas for other subject matter they’d like the MRD to discuss in the future you can always contact Luke Mavis through email to submit your ideas. For those of you interested in this week’s discussion topics, please join us in the Little Theater this Tuesday from 3:00 to 4:15 after school.
Let us fight the oppression of ignorance together!
