Meeting in Paris

The third gathering of united Iranian opposition forces, aka Paris Solidarity Assembly, will be held in Paris, France from 15th to 17th of June, 2007.

This will be an important meeting for the elite of the opposition forces after previous meetings in London and Berlin last year. Rumor has it that an exiled based Iranian parliament/assembly will be launched in very near future that will consist of ethnic and religious minorities and political factions of the Iranian political spectrum:
    [....] This growing assembly arranged the initial steps for a wider assembly on 15-17 June 2007 in Paris with hope that this effective step will strengthen the national unity, support the true struggle for democracy in Iran and strengthen the consensus among democratic opposition in influencing the international opinion about Iran.
Let's cross our fingers that something good and useful comes out of these type of meetings.

here is my prediction:

"They came they sat they talked they stood and they walked away" :)

A co-ordinating committee of 16 people will be elected. They will have a few paltalk conferences and then gradually it will fizzle out.
This is what normally happens when you get a group of people whose only ability is to write articles!
