#476: Bailly's Concession of Commerce (fwd)

From: Kent Diehl <virtmuseum@earthlink.net>

Those of you who follow events will know about the Haitian Chamber of
Commerce and the Bially family.

Here's a rare historical resonance from The Christian Science Monitor
dated May 16, 1991, nearly 4 1/2 months before the coup.

"Justice can't resolve things," says Gerard Bially, president of the
Chamber of Commerce. "We need to see an overall plan. Economically, the
Haitian people can't wait: Every day it is worse for them. Aristide has
the advantage of popularity, but that doesn't feed the hungry."
