>This is an invitation from the Workfare Watch Project to join an on-line
>discussion of welfare reform in Ontario.  E-mail lists are an automatic way
>to send a message to one address and have it  sent out to everyone who
>joins.  When you join  you will get more instructions on how to
>participate.
>
>The OW-WATCH-L list is public and unmoderated which technically means
>everyone who joins can post to the list.   The list set to require
>approvals.   The purpose of this is to block e-mail junk mail from getting
>posted to the
>list.   Everyone who applies is approved.  The OW-WATCH-AN is a moderated
>list where only Welfare Watch will be posting bulletins, announcements and
>notices.
>
>
>OW-Watch-L is intended to be a workspace for activists, welfare recipients,
>the labour,  advocacy and the academic communities to share information and
>stories about the impact of workfare and welfare reform in their
>communities.  We  will also use the on-line discussion to share strategies
>for coping with the fallout of reform and community mobilizing to effect
>change.
>
>
>As well as the broad workspace of the OW-WATCH-L list Workfare Watch has
>established OW-WATCH-AN a moderated web list to send regular bulletins,
>>announcements and  notices.
>
>
>Instructions to join the lists:
