The First Lebanese Bloggers Convention at AUB is CANCELLED

Dear bloggers,

I was informed today that the Students Affairs Office at AUB has decided to cancel the Lebanese Bloggers Convention due to the Tuition Increase protest.

I will be discussing this issue with the Dean's Office for the possibility of postoning it rather than cancelling it. If will post updates here later.

Below is the e-mail sent from the Coordinator of Student Affairs (Hiba Hamade) to Outlook Editor in Chief (Yahia Hamade).

Best regards,
Mohammad Hijazi
