They should be able to give you advice for the IndyMedia Reporter, and because the Bookfair was about freedom of the press.

Misisng box from outside Bookfair

24.10.2005 11:17

I was trying to move some stuff into a van when I was jumped on ( from behind ) and thrown to the ground outside the Coronet pub by a hyperactive/hysterical copper accusing me of throwing bottles! I managed to lose a brown cardboard box in the chaos. If anybody has picked it up please post so we can pick it up / get it to the office.

It contains the printed ASS banner which we had on the stall, some handbooks, and leaflets.

It would be appreciated if we could have it back :-)
