Comment utiliser la messagerie électronique comme moyen d'organisation démocratique à distance et se former à ces techniques. L'expérience et les questions qui se posent dans un groupe à Chypre (“Tendre la main au dessus de la division”), où les rencontres physiques sont impossibles en raison de la division du pays.

(en)"My women's group in Cyprus is terribly dependent on e-mail. It is practically an e-organization. This is because it has been impeded from meeting face to face due to Partition of the country. The e-list, over three years now, has been a difficult and sometimes disastrous experience. What are the skills we need to use e-mail for democratic long-distance organizing, and how in hell do we acquire them?"
