About ten years or so ago, I was priveliged to be part of a small group of people who were involved in something called SPEAK.  SPEAK started out as, and went on to become, a campaigning and prayer based movement of students and young people, dedicated to tackling injustice.

I believe there are now SPEAK cells in various universities, and SPEAK activists in various parts of the UK as well as other countries.

I was contacted the other day by someone from SPEAK, who didnt know of my previous connections with the movement (I was only a lad in them days) and asked me if I could publicise their upcoming gathering in Sheffield – which sadly I wont be able to attend.

The whole thing is being held in ‘the world’s biggest dress’ itself a symbolic statement of protest about the garment industry – another thing that is close to my heart.

I would warmly reccomend that you check them out if you can be in Sheffield on May 10th and 11th.  You can read more about it here. Should be great.
