SignWriting List
March 7, 2010

Hello Ramon -
Thank you for this posting... 

Congratulations on everything you have accomplished...You have done impressive work over many years...It deserves to be published and distributed to the Catalan Deaf Community...Thank you, too, for your writing of the Catalan SignPuddle Online:

At least SignPuddle is free and open and readily available on the web...

I just joined your cause on Facebook, and I can see others on our List have as well....

If there is anything more we can do, please tell us -

All the best wishes on March 15th - I will be thinking of you and hoping for a positive outcome...

Val ;-)

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.

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 Facebook to 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!
