Hi Antonio-

Some quick background...

This project was neither proposed nor accepted. It is not the official

paper of the GA..... It is an autonomous project done by a group of

people to help grow the movement, and thus it is mainly done as an

outreach project, Although it is not of the outreach committee.

Running around scrounging for copies was getting old! Seeing people

read BS accounts of our movement is also not fun or helpful. So we

gathered as a group of people with both the skills, experience, and

drive to get it done. We even raised our own funds.. over $12,000 in

less than one day.

 

As many of the people on this project are probably staying up all

night to try and get it done for our march on Saturday, I am not sure

how many of them would be able to make a late meeting tomorrow night.

I am assuming you want to have some of them attend to get an idea of

where they are at (hopefully done) with the 1st issue etc. Having

more people involved in the future issues is going to be really

important! Perhaps someone who will be involved with the 1st and any

upcoming issues can set a meeting soon....
