The original draft of the letter did mention ANSWER, but there were
various reasons why we decided, in the end, to focus entirely on UFPJ.
A major reason is that whereas we tried in good faith to work
collaboratively with UFPJ and got burned, we already had no illusions
about ANSWER's behavior and didn't bother trying to work with them.
By contrast, as stated in the letter, we had contacted UFPJ before
they announced their mobilization date with a proposal to collaborate
on a protest which would link the war and the IMF/WB.
