Dan, it sounds like great networking for justice is going on with you all
in Cleveland.

AP even had a reporter do an backgrounder (trend analysis) linking your
work with the struggle against NYC police sweeps of homeless people.  I
hope politicians begin to get the message: no harrassment of homeless
people without lost community support.

Will there be a Slumber Party?  Will the Mayor come?  Santa?  Jesus, Mary
and Joseph?  Reuters, UPI and AP?  ACLU and AFSC?

Witness nonviolently for justice. -- Tom
