Welcome to another info-packed issue of the Networking Newsletter - enjoy and participate.
In this issue there is plenty of news, information on people attending court, and on what to boycott, and
lots of training opportunities.
There's the usual pages with heaps of information on what's happening over the next few months, and a vast contacts list. What more could you ask for?
The Networking Newsletter Project relies on donations to survive so, to encourage you to subscribe to the real thing,
we have included here but a sample of the printed newsletter.
The NETWORKING NEWSLETTER is copyright-free, but if you
reproduce any part of the newsletter (whether printing this off and photocopying or sending elsewhere on the Internet),
including the Clash Avoidance Calendar or contacts listing, please credit the Networking Newsletter Project
and send us a copy of what you produce. This will help with our grant applications, and also helps spread the name of the Networking Newsletter.
Remember to submit your articles for future issues

An (almost) regular feature in the Networking Newsletter is a spotlight on different
groups working towards similar goals. Previous Networking Newsletters have focused on the following:
- A look atnetworks in Manchester (issue 11)
- Neil Lea discusses campaigning tactics (issue 10)
- Hazel Greenwood reports back on her recent visit to Iraq (issue 9)
- anti-Trident campaigning in the US (issue 8)
- racism (issue 7)
- green groups (issue 6)
The hardcopy of the Networking Newsletter includes
a double-page colour pull out "clash avoidance calendar" which gives a
graphical description of who's doing what, when and where.
Regular events - eg weekly meetings in the pub - are given here.
Other activities are given by month: 1997 dates
A selection of training events for campaign groups.
Please let us know of any training you require, or can offer, so that we can include details in future issues
Training events on offer from the Networking Newsletter Project and other organisations
Over the next few months, I hope to produce an online "Activists' Guide" to Manchester. We start with the known recycling sites in the city.
Staying in touch
The Networking Newsletter Project is considering getting a mobile phone for lending out to its members. The connection costs will be spread across those who use it (who will also have to pay for their calls of course), but overall it should work out very cheaply for all concerned - probably about a tenner for a weekend.
If you're interested in this, or already have a mobile that you'd be prepared to lend to others, then contact Michael on 01457 871 609.
The Networking Newsletter Project's aims include provide suitable resources for its members. We have copies of all the below publications:
