Dear list:

I am very pleased to be able to tell you that  yesterday  the U.S.
Embassy in Athens issued John a ten year non-immigrant visa.  This
is an excellent result.  The visa has the longest duration possible
and we were able to obtain it without filing a lawsuit, which would
likely  have dragged on for much longer with an uncertain result.
There was a civil liberties attorney in the US - with the support of the
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) - who put in a lot of time and
effort to help bring about this result.  John has received an invitation 
to address the June 10 annual meeting of the American Association of
University Professors (AAUP) in Washington, D.C. so he should be arriving

This is an important victory for the freedom to travel and speak by
international scholars and is a defeat for the Bushites.

In solidarity, Jerry
