MAY 2018 MEETING.
We had up-dates on the issues raised at the February meeting during our April meeting, as well as a report on the Annual General Meeting of the Humanist Association of Ireland, which was held in Dublin on 11th March last and a very spirited discussion on the first principle of the Amsterdam Declaration which is "Humanism is ethical. It affirms the worth, dignity and autonomy of the individual and the right of every human being to the greatest possible freedom compatible with the rights of others. Humanists have a duty of care to all of humanity including future generations. Humanists believe that morality is an intrinsic part of human nature based on understanding and a concern for others, needing no external sanction."
The May meeting (May 2nd) will be in Meades Wine Bar in Cork City (across from Milano's restraurant in Oliver Plunkett street). It is upstairs.
Please arrive at or before 19:30 so not to disrupt the meeting.
There is a voluntary collection of 3 Euro.

The Buddy Programme is for people who are considering coming along to a Cork Humanists event but would prefer to meet up and have a chat with someone one on one before attending an event. If you would like to be a Buddy simply reply to this email with your contact details. Preferably we would like a diverse bunch of Buddies so that when someone emails in we can put them in contact with a Buddy they have something in common with such as age, gender or whether they have children. For more information see our Buddy Progamme web page.
