I have just been informed that the US embassy in London
has refused a visa to a researcher wishing to attend the
mini-conference on value theory in Boston this weekend.

No valid reason was given and the decision was taken
on the whim of an embassy official without even scrutinising
the documentation prepared.

At the Easterns I want to get together a statement from
to protest this violation of academic freedom and human rights.
It would go with a similar protest in the UK. Who do listmembers
suggest I approach? All offers to sign such a protest would
be welcome.

All private e-mail on this will be treated in confidence.
