INTERNATIONAL TRIBUNALON HAITI UN troops shot to death Sonia Romélus, 22, and her sons Nelson, 1, and Stanley, 4, in their home on July 6 in Cité Soleil. Now the killers will be judged. Opening session Friday, September 23, 2005 from 7 to 10 p.m. George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs 1957 E Street, Washington, DC For three years, Washington, Paris and Ottawa, working with Haiti's ruling elite, former soldiers and death-squads, carried out a destabilization campaign culminating in the February 29, 2004 kidnapping and overthrow of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. To quell resistance to the coup, armies from the U.S., France, Canada and the United Nations have occupied Haiti and carried out or aided massacres of hundreds of Haitian citizens, including women, children and infants. It is time that the criminals be judged. On the evening before the giant September 24 March on Washington, testimony and evidence of these crimes will be presented at the opening session of the International Tribunal on Haiti. The tribunal will amass and prepare a case to be submitted to the International Criminal Court in Geneva. A Commission of Inquiry headed by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark will be formed. Come witness history in the making. Mourners express solidarity at a funeral after the July 6 massacre in Cité Soleil BUS TRANSPORTATION to Washington will leave from New York & New Jersey on Friday, September 23 at 11 a.m. and return after the march on Saturday evening, September 24.
