Wednesday 16 May 2012: Be Fair.
I had some extra sound-guy work at uni today. Spent the first hour rushing around to make sure I had everything and loading it into the van, then about half an hour trying to find the best way to actually drive the van to the centre of Uni. First time driving it you see.
So I finally made it to the Agora to set up and found that the group I was setting up for was a big Fair Trade fair.
After running back to the bar a couple of times to fetch things I forgot I actually got to hang around with the organisers a bit and get some nice Fair Trade tea and chocolate. I also got some handouts from a guy promoting Fair Trade shoes and sportswear, which is a really good thing to see, as one doesn't really think about sports goods when one thinks of Fair Trade products, but a lot of them are produced in sweatshops.
To add to the cool things of the day, the Federal Education Minuster showed up out of the blue and had a look at the stalls and a good chat to the National Union of Students guys, so that can only be a good thing.
So yeah, shop smart guys, it's a good thing to do.
