Haiti Action Committee: Building Democracy From The Grassroots

Report Back From Haiti, November 10, 2007
Berkeley, California

This summer, members of the Haiti Action Committee, along with Dr. Akinyele Umoja of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, traveled to Haiti. We met with grassroots activists, political prisoners and human rights workers. We heard the continuing calls for the return of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. We saw close-up the resistance to the U.S./ U.N. occupation.

Throughout our trip, Haitian sisters and brothers expressed their support for the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. They sent solidarity to the San Francisco 8 Black Panther Party veterans/political prisoners now facing trial. And they made it clear that their fight for justice and democracy in Haiti is one and the same as the fight for freedom here.

Join us for an evening of solidarity with the people of Haiti.
