      Further to this, since posting the above I have searched the web in
      vain for any evidence of this ``vigorous'' campaign by Labor for
      Refugees and others within the ALP against the sell-out Labor ``left''
      Ferguson. I've heard some ISO comrades say 100 motions have been
      passed. When were they passed, where have they gone to and where have
      they been debated. What are the plans after these motions have been
      discussed, passed or rejected?

      Labor for Refugees' web site comes to a screaming halt in February
      2004 with this:

      ``Labor for Refugees: where to now? 01 February, 2004

      ``Following the close defeat of the Labor for Refugees amendment at
      the ALP's National Conference, supporters are invited to put forward
      ideas on the path ahead.''

      Nobody posted any ideas and the site has lay dorment ever since.

      Please Bob, give us more details of this camapign and just how much
      life there is to it.
