Dear Friend,

I don't know if you're aware that, back in October 2000, I presented my work
*The signs on the inside* (which was an etymological research project about
Catalan Sign Language, and had the backing of the former Chancellor of the
University of Barcelona, Ph.D. Antonio Caparros) to a prestigious award,
without success. After that, I began to work in the first general and
etymological dictionary of the Catalan Sign Language, the text of which I
almost completed in late 2007.

Since then I have held parallel talks with two publishers -I'm still in
contact with one of them- in order to publish my work, and also to find out
if there are any grants or subsidies we could use, either from the Catalan
Government or the Catalan Institute of Cultural Industries. Another
important issue has been trying to obtain purchase commitments for a certain
number of copies per edition from many public catalan institutions... And
this is going on and on, like if it wasn't important having a waiting deaf
community .

Finally, on March 15th I'm going to have a critical meeting, that I hope it
will be conclusive. In order to  make known all this facts, I have started a
* **campaign through
denounce this scandal and demand that the agreements needed between
government, private enterprise and myself come to fruition. I need YOUR
support, and the support of all those that relate to the CSL, even if you
simply are in favor of culture and solidarity with the excluded. This
campaign will be closed on March 13th. Do you have a minute to spare? Then
join us!
