Subject: LET'S CHAT WITH BILL CLINTON TONIGHT ABOUT HAITI!
IT'S TONIGHT! PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON WILL CHAT WITH US ONLINE FROM
WWW.TOWNHALLMEETING.EXCITE.COM. BETWEEN 7:00-8:30p.m. EST. LET'S MAKE SURE
THAT HAITI IS PART OF HIS AGENDA. JUST CUT AND PASTE THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE
AND SEND IT WITH YOUR NAME TO THE PREZ. JUST ONE CLICK! OUR PEOPLE IN HAITI
Dear President Clinton:
In October of 1994, the international community, under your enlightened
leadership, joined forces with the people of Haiti to allow President Jean
Bertrand Aristide to return to his land and to continue his legitimate
Today, five years later, Haitians from across the social and economic
spectrum share a profound disillusionment with the evolution of the
political process in our country. Our hope for a democratic and a more
modern society has been killed. Jean Bertrand Aristide and actual President
Rene Preval have undermined all attempts to take Haiti to a brighter spot.
Since the beginning of this year, Father Aristide and his ?bands? have
clearly demonstrated that they primarily rely on violence to meet their
political ends. Father Aristide?s current posture against free and
democratic elections in the country is a source of anxiety for all of us who
still have family leaving in Haiti.
President Clinton, as a member of the Haitian-American community in New
York, I want to call your attention, on the danger that the next elections
will pose for our people in Haiti if Mr. Aristide and his thugs are left
unchecked. The memories of the bloody events that surrounded our first
attempt to hold democratic elections in our country in 1987 are still fresh.
Mr. President, once again, the Haitian people, inside and outside of the
country, would like to count on your solidarity to mobilize broad support
against what used to be a popular leader who has now turned mad, and against
the other round of violence that awaits the Haitian people on Election Day,
in March of 2000.
