Academic Collapse and Bureaucratic Despotism in Argentine Culture. Letter to Kirchner (tags)

In order to reach an international audience the Document has to be written in the english language, and to avoid its contamination with apocryphal signatures a neutral institution like PetitionOnline has to be searched.

The present invitation has been signed by a committee of six members.
