Hi everybody

Two good pieces of publicity so far, one on Indymedia
http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/regions/birmingham/ by Shiar and the other
on Friction TV by Majid.

Majid picked up the publicity for the sleep-out on the Indymedia website
and came up from London especially to film the vigil and sleep-out. I
think he did an excellent job of making the video, and the political
points were well made. For those of you who couldn't join us that night,
you can see a bit of what you missed in both reports.

The quality was good but the general turnout from supporters was pretty
poor compared with last year. This year about 50 max during the evening
and just 9 sleeping out. Last year about 150 during the evening and 25
sleeping out. Not a criticism, just an observation.

ARC would very much like to find out why the turnout was down to help us
make improvements for next year. One reason may be the fact that Refugee
Week started the very next morning whereas previous years have had the
sleep-out starting well clear of the start of Refugee Week.

So, how about sharing what you think? You can use ARCwm groups to reply to
this message or post a message or question of your own.

Hope to hear from you soon

Bob Kirk
