Western Sahara Talk

Went to the South Manchester Members Co-op Group meeting tonight. What a cheerful friendly lot. Got a brief talk, a short video. A cup of tea, dried fruits and jaffa cakes - the sort of meeting that's low on paper and big on informal chatting. In short a group of ten young Sahrawis are coming to Manchester for the summer. Money has been raised, Virgin have paid for the flights and trains, and hopefully the story will get into the local media. There has been an irregular commitment to the Western Sahara by the local Woodcraft Folk groups for the past 15 years with visits there and here.
