Please join the Haiti Action Committee for a webinar as we begin our 30th year of solidarity with the popular movement in Haiti.
Speakers: “Kafenol” Borgela Jeantine (Community Organizer and Radio Show Emisyon Fanmi Lavalas, Montreal, Canada); Margaret Prescod (Global Women’s Strike Working Group on Haiti); Leslie Mullin (Haiti Action Committee); Prof. Frantz Jerome (Community Organizer, Editorialist/Translator – Dekantasyon Radio Show); Moderator: Prof. Walter Turner (College of Marin)
Haiti is now at a crossroads. Hundreds of organizations, including Fanmi Lavalas, the people’s party, have signed onto the Montana Accord, calling for the end of the dictatorship and a new transitional government. The ruling PHTK party is now totally isolated, dependent on US support for survival.
We will discuss the fast-changing events on the ground in Haiti as well as the ongoing refugee crisis, which has seen over 15,000 Haitians deported back to Haiti from the US over the last few months.
