1. Al Asria dance tour postponed

Sadly the Al Asria dance tour has been postponed till a later date, possibly
in February. Israel has closed the borders of Gaza and the children have not
been allowed to travel. There will still be an event on November 20th  venue
and further details will be announced later (see www.sheffieldpsc.org.uk)

2. Friday 12th Nov - Naming the Dead

Occupation forces do not keep a record of those they kill in Iraq, officials
are quick to gloss over the soldiers ground to dust by the war machine, but
for others the dead are loved ones whose memory will always live on. In
solidarity with them speakers from trades unions, religious groups, political
representatives and many others will read the names of some of those killed by
the twisted governance of George Bush and Tony Blair.

Please bring a candle or torch to shine a light for those who have died in

>From 4:30pm, outside the Town Hall, Sheffield
