This is not true. After a month of trying to make contact with the PGA
process in Asia, we eagerly responded to your request for solidarity
with a request for information about how the gender discussion was organised
with PGA Asia. You responded that your request was simply part of a funding
Our response was to your refusal to help us with any information and
merely to say you were only interested in asking us for money.

Perhaps it would be better if your responses were not based on your empty
We were asking you for information because we believed that we could
learn from how the Gender debate was organised in Asia. As for having
access to education and books, we are involved in the anti-systemic library
to make information generally available. Is this a problem?
Furthermore, we are not anarchists, nor are we white. But if having a
fridge and a toilet is a crime, we plead guilty.

So are we to conclude that you have decided to over-rule these many Asian
It is precisely the element of our response that you pick out which was
most direct in our communication. Put in other terms;
If you want to help us, don't bother, you will only be disapoointed.
But if you see your struggle as our struggle, then let us work together.

So we have to ask ourselves are your pseudo-arguments and projections
genuine delusions or a convenient way of stopping having your power controlling
e-mail access to "PGA Asia" challenged?
The third objective of the "PGA Asia" conference was:
"To establish a strong solidarity among Asian people".
How do you hope to achieve this in relation to the Asian diaspora?
But rather than dwell too much on such questions - which really do not
have much meaning for us - we would rather simply have contact with the
many Asian organisations who wanted to answer us.
Please don't try to stop people from acting glocally.
