    a. Open GFO position:
    The GFO position is still open. AWI members who feel the need to
    be more actively involved in the direction of AWI are encouraged
    to apply for the position.  For a detailed description of what

    3. WEB
    a. Pages added
    The main AWI page has undergone further development.  New categories
    been added and others reorganized.  If you have any comments or
    please share them with us.
    a. Distributing flyer
    In our continuing effort to make people aware of AWI's existence,
    we continue to ask that each and every one of you to help us
    advertise AWI.  Attached to this file is a simple flyer in word
    format.  Please print and distribute around you.
    b. Multilingual flyer
    We are still in the process of developing a multi-fold flyer on AWI that
    will contain AWI's mission statement in various languages.  We currently
    have the following versions: English, French, Spanish, Turkish,
    Serbo-Croatian and Chinese.  We would like to ask you to help us
    translate the mission to any other language that you can.
    c. AWI Polling
    AWI has begun conducting polls on various aspects of the Algerian
    We invite you to help us make this new AWI activity a success by at
    participating -- i.e., casting your vote at:

    If you have a particular question you would like to submit to a poll,
    please feel free to contact us.
    d. AWI Conferencing
    AWI has also begun sponsoring AWI cyberconferences.  This forum will
    hopefully enable people to exchange their views in a setting where the
    aim is not to engage in polemics, but in advancing our collective 
    understanding of the situation in Algeria and in putting on the table
    new ideas.
    You may join AWi conferencing at:

    a. Fund Raising:
    Since our update of last Wednesday, not a single member of AWI has
    sent us a contribution!  AWI is now  more than $600 in debt to
    its board members.  So, once again, we would like to urge
    each and everyone of you to help us with a small donation.
