To Whom It May Concern,
It has come to my attention that government funding for the Acousmania Festival in Bucharest has been cut. I feel this is a grave mistake as I fully support the festival in their goal to bring interesting and stimulating electronic music to the people of Romania. 
It is important that governments everywhere realize that supporting culture is imperative to a society that wants to contribute to and improve the intellectual climate of humankind. 
In this light I ask you to please reconsider your decision and to reinstate your support of the Acousmania Festival.
