    Dear AWI members:
    The following is a highlight of AWI actions since last Wednesday.
    AWI issued no public statement this week.
    You may view all AWI public statements and action calls at:
    2. TASKS
    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
    the GFO position entails, please visit:
    3. WEB
    a. Pages added
    The main AWI page has undergone further development.  Feedback from
    members is encouraged, as always.
    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 have collected the following language versions of the AWI mission 
    statement: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Turkish, 
    and Serbo-Croatian.  Our repeated calls to out compatriotes for an 
    Arabic version and an Imazighen version have yielded no reply.  
    c. AWI Polling
    AWI has begun conducting polls on various aspects of the Algerian
    crisis.  We invite you to help us make this new AWI activity a 
    success by at least 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:
    e. Algeria-scholar
    In its continuing effort to promote greater awareness of the 
    Algerian crisis, AWI has established a mailing list and a page
    to facilitate communiction among Algeria scholars.  For more
    information, please consult:

    An updated page of members may be found at:

    a. Fund Raising:
    After repeated unsuccessful appeals to AWI members and the Algerian 
    community at large for help with the financial burden of keeping AWI 
    afloat, the board is taking steps to seek funding from other sources.
    All the same, we do still you to contribute whatever small amount you 
    can afford.
