    Well, it's been nearly two weeks since the last UK meet, and I was just looking at the local news.

    On Saturday October 21st, the local animal rights group are having a national march and rally in Oxford against the animal research lab that is being built.

    I'm not really interested in what your politics are about this, but I thought it would be an ideal opportunity for a spot of photojournalism practice - along with a few beers, and the beautiful backdrop of Oxford to fill the quiet moments.

    The group are committed to peaceful protest, however there is a chance that some of the more extremist groups could get involved, and so you pays your money and takes your chance if you want to come.

    Any takers sign in below, and we'll arrange it.

    Hey, it could just be you and me, I could keep you under my stairs if you like, and call you Harry!

    Maybe the Reading contingent would be up for it, it's only half an hour away for them - plus magic monkey who lives here.

    Come on boys and girls, live a little dangerously (or a lot dangerously if it all goes t!ts up)

    Hahaha, animal rights in Oxford! Are they from Cambridge originally? ;)

    Show your reportage photos in the photojournalism forum afterwards. I'm interested in this topic.
