Four of us met at lunchtime on the way into Birmingham -- me, the big
fellah, and a couple of new protesters -- with a bagful of Roland's
new "Beware of the Pods with ClipBoards" leaflet. After a quiet drink
we set off to the top, western, end of New Street by "the floozie in
the jacoozie" (statue of a woman bathing in a fountain). Me and the
big fellah set of eastward along the southern or shady side, taking
one pavement each of every side-street as we came to it, and the other
two did the same on the north side. We finished first, but they did a
much more thorough job of getting leaflets up on notice-boards or in
shop-windows for the benefit of people working in the area. afterwards
we got a table looking out onto the pavement at the little pasta/pizza
place and had a nice pizza marinara and irish coffee. It was a lovely
warm summer's day, and we sat round talking about recent and upcoming
redevelopment of the city. Unlike in winter-time, the pedestrianised
western end of New Street is absolutely buzzin' with people and half
the shops open on Sunday. Then we popped a leaflet in the Org, rang
the intercom and asked if a Mr Xemu Etrawl was in the office today,
and made our way home satisfied with a good afternoon's work.
