Dr. Nirenberg, please see note below
Israel Halperin
Dr. Nirenberg,
This Chile Campaign to end all torture in Chile is a concrete step in the program to end torture everywhere.
If you permit your name to be added to the list of 134 Nobel Laureates who support this Chile Campaign this will NOT imply any further commitment by you of any kind whatsoever.
Will you permit this?
