Current Affairs – Gay Rights, Olympic Qualifiers and the SA Film Industry

The theme of this week’s meeting was “Positive Issues” and we discussed progress in Marriage Rights for Gays(South Africa is the first country on the African continent to have these rights), the South African Men’s Hockey team qualifying for this year’s Olympics and South African movies, documentaries and short films being sent to the Cannes Film Festival.

We discovered a website where only good news about South Africa is published. The meeting ended off with a photoshoot of our fabulous members by Nicole Gouws. Since as the political scientists have predicted 2012 to be the year of the most protests (especially by the workers), we have decided to make the theme of next week’s meeting “Causes” and each member will be able to present to the society a cause which they feel strongly about.
