Why an Open Forum?

An open forum …is meant to make space for various viewpoints and various discussions and various debates. Open forums  are not usually organised, especially by politicians, because people feel that they might get  too emotional or out of control , because people don’t trust groups, [don’t trust] that groups are able to work things out with each other….we organise open forums because we trust groups….
