Connect number 34
Date: 5 Sep 2011
Connect No. 34 could be the last edition of the Newsletter under John Howell's guiding hand – as unbelievable as it sounds, he has threatened to resign. But I can't help thinking that it won't really happen until he has found another editor. So what's the bet? Will there be a Connect No. 35 under John's editorial control? I certainly hope so!
In the meantime, we have Connect No. 34 to enjoy. In this edition John talks about Australia's treatment of strangers to our shore - very interesting. Hellen Cooke has also provided an interesting article about women, human rights, media and the defence force. She provides a historical background to women's roles in these arenas, including some interesting extracts from the World Disarmament Conference in February 1932, where women submitted eight million signatures on petitions for disarmament.
