It's not like there isn't a lot going on either... A palestine-Israel 
debate tonight at the Uni; a meeting at the weekend about disability 
cuts, which saw the launch of a new Sheffield Network; plans afoot to 
level Spital Hill... (which I'm just writing about now, actually!  
Should get up there tomorrow...)

Partly, I'd hoped that the workshop would lead to a good group of people 
who liked covering such things, which would offer support and a 
co-operative space, whilst always being open and supportive to new-comers...

The true meaning of life is to plant trees,
under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
