Dirk, The only problem we would have is that our names were posted on a web site that implies promoton of communism.. without our permission. This is the method used with spam. A company seeks out those similar interest and spams them accordingly. There is a clear-cut difference between solidarity and illegal use of a signature. It was clearly without consent. It would be like you giving me your e-mail and me selling it to others. What was done is actually illegal. Not that I am upset with you, but to say ". I really don't see the problem. And I don't see bad intentions here. I would call this "spreading solidarity." is quite dismissive and missing the point of how this can ruin someone. You have been known to be a very kind person, and I do not believe you meant to do any harm. If possible, please have my name removed. I would greatly appreciate your assistance. Thanks Dirk.

And a lot of people, also listmembers of CASI, signed this petition, as you may have noticed on http://www.irak.be/ned/kalender/peacepledgeSOSIraq.htm. I still receive signatures to support this petition, because it is obvious Bush won't stop with Iraq. On the 13th of october your group "Leidse Werkgroep voor Palestijnse Belangen" held a conference in Leiden in solidarity with Palestine and Iraq. There was Tanya Reinhard, Gretta Duisenberg, Luk Brusselaers (one of the initiators of the petition), and Ludo Keersmaekers, a member of SOS Iraq Belgium. On the 15th of october Ludo has sent me a mail with signatures he gathered on that conference. Your name was on that list, so I have put your name on line among the other endorsers of this appeal. Your group organises a new conference in Leiden on the 15th of june 2003 in cooperation with a.o. one of the initiators of the petition: Luk Brusselaers, responsible of "SOS Kinderen Irak Nederland". Jo Cottenier will attend to the conference as a speaker. He is the responsible of "StopUsa", meaning: "Stop the United States of Aggression", which is the Belgian Peace-movement that initiated the peace-appeal (SOS Iraq was co-founder of this movement), and that emerged from that peace appeal. The appeal was a tremendous success, also because it was translated in 8 languages. Without our knowledge, different people have sent the petition to different discussion-groups. Several websites all around the world (Germany, Spain, Italy, Russia, Latin-America....) have adopted the petition and have put the names of endorsers also on their website. I really don't see the problem. And I don't see bad intentions here. I would call this "spreading solidarity". If you want your name removed from the list, please feel free to send me an e-mail. I'm sorry if I have caused you any trouble. Yours in struggle for peace.
