5347: Re: 5327 A Real Discussion (fwd)

From: Haitian Times <publisher@flashcom.net>

This is a wonderful idea. But I can assure you that we would'nt get beyond
those who should attend. Everyone who has held a picket sign outside the UN
or who has talked in their living room about the Haiti condition would feel
that it's his or her right to be the representative on these talks. Without
them there won't be any dialogue. And they would actively try to stop it.
