Thank you Tommie for the invitation. I would love to come to Balisage again. But I don't think this is the right time to be applying for a visa, and I don't think it's appropriate to sponsor a conference held in a country that will exclude people from attending on grounds of race or religion. Sorry, but I think one has to make a stand.

Respect !!
