Endorsements to the Letter to Kofi Annan on Tunisia
  The following civil society organizations and individuals support the open letter on the human rights violations in WSIS summit host country Tunisia, sent to UN secretary-general Kofi Annan on 1 October 2005. See the letter: english | espanol | français | italiano 

Though the letter was already sent, we will collect further supporters here. It will be helpful for our friends from the independent Tunisian NGOs in the upcoming weeks until the summit in November 2005, and hopefully afterwards, too.

If you also want to sign this letter, please send your name and the organization your represent to Wolf Ludwig <Wolf.Ludwig (at) comedia.ch>.
