Dear Friends of CEIMSA,

I would like to apologize for the multiple copies of our long dossier which some of you received yesterday. And thank you for your good humor on this account. This technical problem has now been corrected and will not happen again.

Also, thank you for your keen interest in this important challenge to academic freedom at Stendhal University-Grenoble 3.


We at CEIMSA-IN-EXILE believe it is important to keep an historical perspective, such as the following insight :

                                 First they came for the Communists, but I was not a
                                    Communist so I said nothing. Then they came for the
                                    Social Democrats, but I was not a Social Democrat so
                                    I did nothing. Then came the trade unionists, but I was not
                                    a trade unionist. And then they came for the Jews, but
                                    I was not a Jew so I did little. Then when they came for me,
                                    there was no one left who could stand up for me.
