Jerome Keating Meet Up Sat 13

A thunderstorm brews above Wenzheng Lane, near Sun Moon Lake

Jerome Keating sends this around:

Our next meeting is this coming Saturday, July 13, at 10 am.

Speaker, Stephen Pilion Ph.D. of St Cloud State Univ.

Topic: "Have you wondered what is going on with Labor Activism on either side of the Taiwan Strait?"

Are things happening and if so what?

Here is his background.

Stephen Philion
Professor of Sociology
Dept. of Sociology and Anthropology
St. Cloud State University

Director, SCSU Research Group on Immigrant Workers in Minnesota

Venue: is the same as it has traditionally been. Time is 10 am.
The meeting location is the restaurant 婷婷翠玉 at 174 AnHe Road, Section Two. (rough translation of name is Tender, Pretty Green Jade.) You will be able to tell the restaurant by the lace curtains on the window--it was used in a TV commercial a while back. (We will have the downstairs room--breakfast cost will range between NT$100 and NT$150. Everyone buys their own)

Restaurant is between Far Eastern Plaza Mall/Hotel and HePing East Road--about a half a block north of the corner of HePing East Road Sec. 3 and AnHe Road. or a half a block south of Far Eastern Plaza on the AnHe Road side.

Take the MRT Mucha (Brown) Line to the Liuchangli Station exit there, and walk west on HePing East Road 3/4 of a block till you reach where AnHe Road dead-ends into it.Then go north on AnHe Road; it is a half a block up on the west side of that street.

Or take any bus down HePing East Road and get off at the first stop that is east of Tun Hua South Road. That will put you at the corner of HePing and AnHe.
You can also take a bus down Tun Hua South Road to the stop right across from Far Eastern Plaza and walk over to AnHe Road.
Or if you take the 235 bus east, it turns off of HePing onto AnHe Road and the first stop is right across from the restaurant.

To keep me abreast of headcount, please email me if you plan to attend. I think this will have many points of interest for all.
