Dear all, thanks God the list manager has finally decided to intervene! I've also been tempted to unsubscribe from this list. As I respect the different opinions, I've tried to endure all this so far, but it can't go on this way. It's a long time since we've seen a positive, solid, informative, useful message about sanctions and anti-sanctions work. How is it possible that some people don't understand when enough is enough? How long are we going to discuss about AI, Iraq's human rights record, Halabja etc. etc.? I do not deny the importance of these issues, but how does all this waste of time help our work, which should be focused on denouncing and fighting economic sanctions ? Shouldn't we try to be more action-oriented? Best Wishes Ornella Sangiovanni Coordinator Italian Campaign "Break the Sanctions!"
