   Dear all,
   I have offered to organise a speaking tour of Australia for Sasha
   Surmava. I will be organising it under the aegis of the Victorian
   Peace Network, as part of a series of such tours which aim to foster
   collaboration between a diversity of social justice constituencies.
   The hope is to cover the cost of air fares through University
   contributions, leaving time for Sasha to talk to social justice groups
   about life in the former soviet union, peace, social justice, poverty
   and so on. Sasha is preparing a CV and other material that I can start
   working with to gain interest from the Universities.
   I need help.
   Firstly, could any of you XMCA-ers who are in Australia, please
   conatct me so we can cooperate to find academic sponsors and also,
   sympathetic hosts who could welcome Sasha in the different cities in
   Secondly, the whole thing would be so much richer for Sasha and I
   think more viable financially, if his return trip included some talks
   in the US, and hopefully some contribution to the cost of the whole
   trip. :-)
   The plan is to fit the trip in the period 25 June - 24 July 2006.
   Any takers?
   Andy Blunden
