Radix - Latest additions

The latest material is placed or listed here before being moved to its permanent place within the site.

bd14519_1.gif (968 bytes) We have an email discussion list, generously managed by Dr Alberto Delgado from ECIE - a Peruvian/American NGO (for more information about ECIE go to http://www.ecie.org )- thank you!  If you would like to send a message to the list, please send to:

We have set up this list in order to reserve the web site as a resource base for those who are studying these issues, for teachers and students, for activists, for practitioners. The list will offer a more interactive and spontaneous way of sharing brief news items, ideas, commentaries without the time lag involved in placing things on the web site.
