Fr. Jean-Juste is one of Haiti's most respected human rights advocates. On Wed. Oct. 13, 2004, Haitian police forcibly entered the St. Clare's Catholic Church Rectory in Port-au-Prince and arrested him without a warrant while he was feeding hundreds of hungry children. He was imprisoned and then released seven weeks later as a result of an outpouring of international pressure. Fr. Jean-Juste is a prominent activist for social justice and the rights of immigrants in Haiti and the United States. He has been one of Haiti's most eloquent, persistent and influential voices for peace over the past two decades.
