Dan, may all go well at the Food Not Bombs demo Wednesday to protest police
sweeps of homeless people from the streets in Cleveland, Ohio, USA.  Thanks
for sending the announcement ot HPN & FNB lists.

Since AP is covering the Cleveland street sweeps (because they "hook" to
the hot news item of the NYC sweeps and NY Senate race), maybe officials
there will feel the media heat and back off from the sweeps.

In Cleveland you are doing superb "coalition building" (often ignored by
FNB chapters).  Keep it up!

For justice through nonviolence. -- Tom
