Sad news - but I sent an email to this List over a month ago
asking where comrades can give direct support besides just
words in Tunisia - and there was not a single response?

Now this NYC event is listed - what about directly to groups
in Tunisia?  I know of the labor federation and some Maoist
groups - any concrete suggestions that make a real difference?

 International solidarity is lacking badly here in my opinion.
