Query:

Who are the members of the Group of 184? Are they individuals or organizations? Who heads the Group of 184?

Response:

The Group of 184 (Groupe 184) consists of both individuals and organizations, arranged in thirteen sectors " cultural, private enterprise, labor union, peasant union, urban neighborhood, feminist, civic association, educational, professional, human rights, media, university, and non-governmental organization. Some organizations are listed in more than one category. The Group of 184 is headed by U.S.-born businessman André ("Andy") Apaid, Jr. According to the National Commission for Haitian Rights, Apaid "has been the public voice behind the movement as well as its best salesperson. Mr. Apaid also has a strong anti-Aristide reputation, which greatly contributes to the perception of the group as an anti-Lavalas outfit" (NCHR 2003). The following membership lists were obtained from the Group of 184 website at http://www.group184.org/. The lists have been rearranged in alphabetic order, obvious typographical errors corrected, and English translations provided wherever possible.
