20th Feb 200818:15AcademicDR DIEGO MURO: ETA and Basque Nationalism 2007 saw dramatic developments in the struggle against radical Basque nationalism. The terrorist group ETA abandoned its ceasefire on December 30th 2006 in an attack on Barajas Airport with 200kg of explosives that left two people dead. The opposition Popular Party organised massive rallies condemning the ruling Socialists' previous policy of dialogue. After a year of foiled plots, the following December has brought two assassinations and a further two bombings. In the meantime, the Basque Nationalist Party's first minister of the Basque Country, Juan José Ibarretxe, has been arraigned before the Supreme Court after meeting with members of ETA's banned political wing Batasuna. Dr Muro will profile the phenomenon of Basque nationalism, analysing the level of support for armed movements and discussing the implications for Spanish politics in the run-up to the Spanish general election this March. Dr Muro is Lecturer in Spanish Politics at King's College London. An authority on Basque nationalism, he recently completed Ethnicity and Violence: the case of radical Basque nationalism.

9th Feb 200819:00MusicVOCE: 'Love Calls'VOCE (Voices Of Cambridge Ensemble) are putting on a sequence of music and readings in Trinity Chapel entitled 'Love Calls'. VOCE emerged from the chapel choir in mid-1990s and has benefited from further choral scholars from Trinity joining as the years have progressed. It is directed by Jonathan Sampson (Trinity, 1992-1995) and usually gives 3-5 concerts per year to a very high standard around the country, despite the members of the group not being full-time professional singers. The text for the sequence has been written by Professor John Bowker (ex-Dean of Chapel) and his Wife, Margaret, and it focuses on human and divine love coming, as it does, only a week before St Valentine’s day. Tickets will be available on the door, at £5, £3 & £2 (Chapel).

6th Feb 200818:15Guest SpeakerDR ALLEN VINCATASSIN: Exiled British Islanders The population of the British Indian Ocean Territory (formerly Chagos Archipelago) was evicted in 1971 by the British Government under the Royal Prerogative, to make way for the construction of a U.S. military base on Diego Garcia. Unable to take their possessions and given meagre compensation after a long struggle, the 2,000 islanders were dumped in Mauritius. Since then, they and their descendents have fought for legal redress, including the right to return to their homeland. In May 2007, the Court of Appeal ruled that the government's obstructive tactics were unlawful and that the islanders were able to return (only) to the outer islands of the territory. Dr Allen Vincatassin will tell us about his pioneering work in the process of resettlement of his compatriots in the UK, the struggle for justice, the potentially sweeping constitutional significance of the different court cases, and the prospects for the Chagossian diaspora. Dr Vincatassin is the Leader of the Chagossian people in the UK and the Founder and Patron of the Diego Garcian Society. (Old Combination Room).
