who we are

we are a loose group of friends in Europe trying to support anti-colonial and emancipative forces in Bangladesh. We highly appreciate the work of certain ngos. But as a non-formal network we are more free to emphasize on experimental projects. We do not think our responsibility concerning north-western dominance in globalisation is fullfilled with this project.
