Hi Plot, I was requested to bring to SLLU an important campaign... it's called WDDW (World Day for Decent Work).
A support from all of the SLLU friends can be vey important on that day from
3:30 to 5:00 pm Swiss-Italian time on Union Island. We'll have t-shirts for
all and note cards to distribute!

Let me know, bye Davide (Barillo Kohnke)
