Dr. Maryse Narcisse Kidnapped in Haiti
Haiti Action Committee - Urgent Action Alert

We recently received the shocking news that Dr. Maryse Narcisse, member of the National Commission of the Fanmi Lavalas Party, has been kidnapped. Dr. Narcisse and her driver, Delano Morel, were abducted near her home in Port-au-Prince.

Dr. Narcisse is a medical doctor and long-time advocate for democracy in Haiti. She has been in the forefront of efforts to provide community-based health care and education for all Haitians.

Exiled to Miami after the US-orchestrated coup d'etat in 2004 that overthrew the democratic government of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, she became personal spokesperson for President Aristide and was instrumental in creating an international voice for the Lavalas movement. She returned to Haiti in 2006, after the election of President Rene Preval, to continue her efforts to restore democracy.

The disappearance of Dr. Narcisse is the latest assault on the Haitian grassroots movement. Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine, a psychologist, human rights advocate and leader of Lavalas, has been disappeared and presumed kidnapped since August 12th. Other Lavalas activists remain imprisoned under inhumane conditions. The United Nations occupying forces boast of "stability" and an "improved security situation" in Haiti. In fact, under UN occupation, a wave of terror against political and human rights activists has been taking place in Haiti.

Please contact the following offices of the U.S. Embassy, the U.N. occupying powers, and the government of President Rene Preval. Let them know that people all over the world are outraged at these disappearances in Haiti.

Express your concern that all efforts are being made to facilitate the safe return of Dr. Maryse Narcisse, Delano Morel and Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine.
