Subject: Resolution 2014-2
I just returned from the MLA meeting and I attended the meeting where the above resolution was passed. I oppose it strongly but was prevented from speaking. This was unfair, because the excuse from the people presiding was that we had run out of time. The truth was that time was wasted by them (those presiding); they didn't seem to know what they were doing and took up time conferring among themselves.
