#3407: Pina responds to anonymous (fwd)

From: kevin pina <cariborganics@hotmail.com>

"A call from Aristide on public radio or television, specifically asking 
supporters of the Lafanmi to resist violence, deploring the murder or 
kidnapping of opposition leaders and explaining why the violence is 
politically and morally unjustifiable could make a difference."

To so do is to unneccesarily admit concern for a wrong perception. There is 
no need for such a pronouncement since Lafamni obviously takes that stance 
anyway. Further, there is something false in the logic that implies he must 
be guilty of something because he refuses to state the obvious.

Aristide has always been consistent in calling for non-violence and 
reconcilliation, especially after he was shouldered back into power. Many 
within the OP's or Popular Organizations, responded by calling for 
"reconcilliation with justice" for the victims of the coup. These 
organization's members took the brunt of the military's brutality and appear 
committed to not letting that memory be buried under an avalanche of 

A climate that allows for fair elections and stable institutions holds the 
hope for redress of the massacre of thousands of Haitians.  This is clearly 
in the stated interests of supporters of Lafamni and raises more questions 
than it answers concerning who is behind the violence in Haiti.
