Subject: On posting

PLEASE help me on posting.  It takes lots of time when I have to
work on the posts.

I need THREE THINGS on every post.


 	YOU -- not me --

 	Must provide the follow information in the SUBJECT LINE:

 	A.  Your name.
 	B.  Nature of post (reply -- news article -- opinion piece -- announcement --
 		request -- asking  etc.)


2.  In the BODY of the post, where I used to have your e-mail address at
 	the top, the POSTER must post his or her name (or name you use on
 	the list).

3.  Please do not write you note OVER THE TOP of the previous.  Delete
 	it before you sent your reply.

The list is a lot of work, this isn't asking much of posters.

Haiti Action Committee
in celebration of Black History Month presents:

Two Years After the Coup

President of the Federation of Public Transport
Workers of Haiti

Two years ago US Marines kidnapped President Aristide
on Feb. 29, 2004. The coup brought to power a
death-squad regime, backed by the guns of 8,000 United
Nations troops, which terrorized Haiti's poor
majority. Since the coup, the situation for Haiti's
workers and peasants grew more and more desperate. Yet
the Resistance continued strong -- as seen most
recently when people poured into the streets to
prevent their elections from being stolen.

Duclos Benissoit is a leader of a major bus and truck
drivers' union -- a key part of the movement for
democracy in Haiti. Forced into exile since the coup,
Mr. Benissoit continued to speak out against the coup
regime. As one of the grassroots leaders of the
pro-democracy movement in Haiti, he has a wealth of
knowledge about the recent history and situation of
the workers and people of Haiti.

Come to hear and honor him, as we celebrate the
Haitian people's triumph in ensuring victory for their
overwhelming choice for President in the February 7
elections, Rene Preval.
