Friends and colleagues, or just plainly "hola" if you prefer,

surely as it is the case for you, I am horrified with the policies of
Trump's administration. These policies have terrible personal consequences
for people we know, either directly for themselves or for their friends or
relatives. But there are also professional consequences. Not only in terms
of lacking job security or because people feel vulnerable in a professional
setting just because of whom they are or where they come from. But also in
practical terms because people, from one day to the next, are not being
able to travel to attend conferences, give talks, etc...

Besides supporting organisations like the ACLU, it is not clear what to do
about the whole thing because everything one does will be essentially
symbolic. But symbols have a value. At the very least they tell people that
their community does not consider "normal" what is going on.

As such a symbol we have drafted an inclusiveness statement which one can
sign - you can find it here

Also, again just as such a symbol, I have personally decided that until
things get normal (if they do), I will not be participating in any
conference which does not make some form of explicit statement asserting
that it is open to everybody. I know that it is silly and that absolutely
nobody will care if I go to a conference or if I don't, but well, some
things are just unacceptable and I just want that it is said clearly.

Anyways, I wish you all a great day, and I hope that the next e-mail is
about math.
