The following letter from Joly reached the world-coordinators-meeting at the 12th March:Dear participants of Nepal meetingsRevolutionary greetings. It is unfortunate that I could not attend the meeting of the coordinators in Nepal because of my involvement in a suddenly developed movement of the workers of three garment factories numbering about five thousand. The workers are not getting wages for last four months. Previously workers belonged to a different organization having affiliations to ruling bourgeois party. Their previous leaders only served the interest of the owners. All the workers in block rejected their old leaders and came to us. They came out on the street and it was a big event. I have become so much involved in it that it is impossible to leave the city. That would have been sort betrayal to the cause of the workers movement. The movement is still continuing. Under such circumstance I am unable to go to Nepal. However we shall try our level best to execute the decisions taken by the coordinators meeting in Nepal. Hope the meeting will bei successful. We are organizing inside Bangladesh so that we can contribute to the second world conference. We have confidence in your leadership. Comradely yours Joly
10 For the preparation of the 2nd World Women’s Conference an Asian continental conference has to take place as soon as possible – at the latest in three months. The goal is to invite as far as possible all contacts and involve them in the preparation, responsibility and mobilization for the conference taking place in one years time. The representatives of the eight Nepalese women’s organizations confer about two alternative dates. Unanimously.
11 The participants of the World Meeting of Coordinators again inform the Asian coordinators and deputies, who do not attend the World Meeting, about this matter that concerns us all. The goal is, to win them for the participation, responsibility and carrying out of the conference. We ask them to tell us their opinion, the date they prefer and the possibility of their personal participation – in the course of one week to all coordinators. Unanimously.
12 All coordinators declare themselves responsible for this Asian conference. Unanimously.
13 If the Asian coordinators that do not attend the World Meeting, will not participate in the preparation of the Asian conference or do not respond, then the three coordinators, Sarita, Durga and Shiela will initiate an invitation for the Asian conference – and all coordinators will develop initiatives for the success of the conference. Unanimously.
14 We confirm the decision, that the World Women’s Conference has a broad spectrum and includes all women that fight for their rights and liberation and recognize the principles – excluded fascists and fundamentalists – according to the resolution of Caracas and the documents.On behalf of these decisions we confirm the decision to make a call for support of the World Women’s Conference in Nepal and for winning a broad spectrum of women as signatories.More over we confirm the election of the delegates according to the principles. The eight Nepalese women organizations are free to make a request at the General Assembly for increasing the number of their delegates. Unanimously.
15 We decide that Sarita and Durga are Coordinators till the 2nd Asian Conference and recommend the Asian Conference to confirm this. Unanimously.
16 The letter to the Asian-Coordinators and Deputies is accepted with the mentioned changes.Unanimously.
17 The coordinators of each continent and region discuss with their sisters and decide within one month (15.04.2015) who (1 woman) and how they delegate into the International Organizing Committee (IOC). If possible this should be one of the coordinators or deputies. If not possible the coordinators can nominate women responsible.This IOC will communicate by Skype and email and will have to work out the concepts for the structure and the tasks of organizing the 2nd World Women’s Conference. This committee has to work together closely and has to report continuously to all worldwide coordinators, who are the main decision makers about the organization of the World Women’s Conference.Unanimously.
18 The coordinators request the eight woman organizations in Nepal (United Women’s Association) to tell them as soon as possible if, when, how many and for which tasks they need volunteers/brigades from other countries. Unanimously.
19 Another worldwide meeting of coordinators will take place in about six months in Nepal together with the IOC. This meeting will have 3 tasks:1. Discuss the general situation about the 2nd World Women’s Conference.2. Discuss and decide upon the concepts and problems of organizing the World Women’s Conference. 3. Meet more important representatives of government, municipality and if possible have a meeting with representatives of all the eight parties together. It would be okay, if only one of the coordinators of each continent or region besides Asia takes part in the meeting, because otherwise it might be too expensive. We plan this meeting for three days.
