My focus for 2012 has been and remains to remove religious indoctrination from Australian public schools. Its a narrow focus but doable. If I was to work hard on a second focus it would be the removal of promoting religion as an "as of right" tax break in the Australian tax law.

Working out how we can get rid of scripture classes in NZ. A wee facebook group has been started and it's growing slowly.
And I aim to take a small class in philosophy, more education = better able to rationalise = better atheist activist

Quite simple, just type in Keep religion out of school (NZ). New Zealand association of Rationalists and Humanists is another fledgling site
Apparently one religious group was teaching in a north island school that dinosaurs weren't real. sigh

Exclamation Re: Inspired to action from convention afterglow

I forgot to add that when I buy books from Amazon for my Kindle I will link to amazon via the RDFRS site so that they can get a % from what I buy
