8106: Re: 8079: Re: 8073: Avril and the Democratic Convergence (fwd)

From: Amy Wilentz <amywile@panix.com>

It's very disturbing to me to see Prosper Avril, a truly devious and
antidemocratic militarist, being called "former president" as if he'd
been elected to office by the Haitian people. That's a gross distortion
of history.

Equally painful is to see Jean-Claude Bajeux, a champion of human rights
and victim of Duvalierism, being quoted as if he opposed Avril's arrest.
Politics is confusing, and perhaps creates strange coalitions, but this
one is too outlandish.
