Worldlog Week 22 – 2008

30 מאי 2008

Our party congress (members’ meeting) was held last week. It was an opportunity to look back at a highly successful year in which we gained eight seats in the Provincial States and a seat in the senate in addition to our two seats in the lower house of parliament. You can read a summary of my speech here.

Party members at the congress adopted the recommendation by the party executive committee to participate in the European elections to be held in the summer of next year! Next year promises to be an exciting and busy one full of intense campaigning.

Peter Singer, the Australian professor of bio-ethics at Princeton university, philosopher and one of the fathers of the animal rights movement, held a very inspirational speech during the congress. It was a true honour to have Professor Singer attend our congress.
