Dear Larry,

The Mission Statement of the World Prout Assembly reads:

“The mission of the World Prout Assembly is to unite moralists everywhere against exploitation anywhere. We seek to gather the unheralded and unsung heroes and heroines around the globe, who quietly do yeoman work in countless local struggles against oppression. Oppression comes in countless forms, be it fundamentalism, fascism, communism, patriarchy, or corporate capitalism. The victims of oppression are human beings, animals and plants – all life forms. Struggle starts with the fight to reclaim economic sovereignty of local communities. This begins with the spread of cooperatives in all sectors of the economy. Struggle thrives when the local people and local experts plan together the development of their district and then regional economies. This struggle to regain control over local economies is part of the movement for economic democracy.” World Prout Assembly endeavors to unite all struggles against oppression into one global struggle, as we seek to create one world, one humanity and one family.”

Bearing in mind the second sentence above that “We seek to gather the unheralded and unsung heroes and heroines…” in this regard, I would like to inform you that at the First Summit of the World Prout Assembly, held May 22-25 at Radford University, Radford, Virginia, you were given the Voice of Justice Award, for your quiet, humble, endless work for suffering humanity, which takes the form of your illuminating writings on issues of justice and injustice, which further takes the form of thousands of hours of tireless work in your local community, both of which always seek to give a voice to the oppressed people of the world.

It is a great pleasure to give you this very first Award giving by our organization, and I sincerely hope that it will lead to greater interactions between us in the future as we strive to build a better world.

With warmest wishes,

Garda Ghista
World Prout Assembly
