Dear Arianna,

I may be wrong, but this announcement sounds at least premature. Before
becoming "official", according to the AIUCD by-laws, the agreement should
be approved by the AIUCD associates general meeting. This vote would be
expressed upon discussing all the details of the agreement -- of which we
Italian associates still know very little.

For a number of reasons, exposed publicly and privately, I was very
skeptical about AIUCD becoming a member of EADH. Nonetheless, during the
AIUCD general meeting in December, as a simple associate I voted in favour
of continuing the negotatiations with EADH. At that time no draft
agreement, either official or unofficial, was presented to the associates
for an open discussion. The president of the association, Dino Buzzetti,
has recently wrote on the AIUCD list that the agreement would have been
circulated and presented to the next general meeting for approval:

"(...) non appena stipulato, il testo dell'accordo verra' reso noto, in
modo da poter essere successivamente sottoposto alla ratifica

It's not clear to me, at this point, if the general meeting [assembly]
would be called just to ratify a "fait accompli", or if the associates
would be actively entitled to discuss the details, propose modifications,
corrections, etc.

Although I have resigned from the AIUCD for personal and political reasons,
and will neither be voting nor contributing to the discussion, I think it
would be important for the Italian members of AIUCD to have an opportunity
for an open and democratic debate. This would be vital for a newly founded
association like AIUCD, but it would be also healthy for EADH.

All the best
