July 25, 1994 letter from Dr. Jose Ignacio Guzman Mejia, Chairman of Section Mexico General Service Board, to the General Service Conference US/Canada

To: General Service Conference
E.E.U.U. & Canada Sections

   By means of a letter addressed to the A.A. World Services, Inc. signed by Thomas J., we obtained information that the Service Director (Thomas J.) gave permission or authorizing the Central Mexicana de Servicios Generales de Alcoholicos Anonimos Section Mexico, A.C.to initiate legal actions VS. our Junta de Servicios Generales de Alcoholicos Anonimos Seccion Mexico, A.C. "accusing the organization for the responsibility of the utilization to authors rights gave to AA, and at the same time the "logo" and literature distribution of AA provokes public opinion antagonism that violates "principles that no government for AA."

   By means of this on July the 5th, to the present year, in a poor, shameful action, they sent a judge order to enter to our offices, utilizing aggressively and violence to obtain our literature (policemen, chargers, lawyers at the control office and other people.)

   Because of this on July the 9th, of the present year, we had an Extraordinary meeting of the General Service Conference, Section Mexico to valorate and send to you in an advise action, the document that avalate this and a legal inquire done to E.E.U. U. and Canada based on the Fifth Concept, copy of the legal edict that they presented versus our subsidiary, copy circumstantial act copy (in which we turned the actions done by the authorities brought by them).

   If you need more information or ampliation of these inform we will send to you.  If you want more comments to the present one, please communicate it to us and with pleasure we will ampliate to you.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Conference: "Always Guardian, Never Government to A.A."

Dr. Jose Ignacio Guzman Mejia
Chairman of the General Service Board Section Mexico
