Stamp out spiking

Drink spiking is becoming a huge issue world wide. This is now not simply adding a drug to drinks, but has now included people being injected directly (which is also assault).

We need to stamp this out.

Dawn Dines, is leading this campaign and runs training courses for bar managers to help raise awareness and know what to do if this happens. Please see links below for lots of resources etc.

FSF fights to secure software freedom for future generations

A message from Geoffrey Knauth, President, Free Software Foundation.

This year-end, we are focusing on growing the community with our year-end goal of gaining 500 new associate members before December 31st. The deadline is only two days away, and we are not there yet. We need your support to continue to grow, and to give strength to the Free Software Foundation's (FSF) mission to protect #UserFreedom. Below is a message from our president Geoffrey Knauth reflecting on the FSF's mission to protect software users everywhere.

The US government recognized that 2020 was a difficult year for people, and for charities like the FSF. Special tax law changes for 2020 now make it possible for deduction of cash donations, including becoming an associate member, of up to $300 made before December 31, 2020.
