7085: Re: 7056: land reform (fwd)

From: Joanne Kaufman <joanne_jake_@hotmail.com>

I've watched the land reform discussion wavering, but have to jump in since 
I worked for Christian Peacemaker Teams, the organization whose 
documentation of land reform was just cited. I guess I'm glad to see CPT's 
work cited; however, I am surprised no Haitians or other folks, groups, or 
organizations with real facts and understandings from Haiti "en dehors" have 
comments to make.  No USAID studies? No United Nations studies?

I know that there's plenty of tension around land and land reform; another 
team I worked on in Haiti worked in the North, not the Artibonite where this 
team was located.  They had thoughts about allegedly huge landholdings of 
the church. . .

I'd be curious to know what _Haitian_ (or other, more recent) research and 
reflection has been done on the land reform process; know what progress has 
been made, etc.

this link is but one example of the land reform issue in Haiti........it
gives indication that the issue was persued under Preval...............

being labeled "anti-Aristide" suggests that the author of that post is
perhaps not aware of the land reform issue currently underway in
