Haiti Celebrates Its Bicentennial:

Hear the report from those who were there -

An Evening with Pierre Labossiere and the Haiti Action Committee

On January 1, 2004, Haiti, the first black republic in the western hemisphere, celebrated the 200th anniversary of its independence. Hundreds of thousands of Haitians took to the streets to commemorate this historic event, as well as to support the democratically elected government of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. The corporate media ignored this popular mobilization, instead focusing on the much smaller opposition demonstrations.

What actually took place in Haiti during the bicentennial? What forces are really behind the anti-Aristide opposition? Why are Haitian popular organizations warning of the danger of another coup? Why is the truth about Haiti hidden from the headlines?

Join us for an evening with Pierre Labossiere, founding member of the Haiti Action Committee. Pierre attended the bicentennial activities in both Port-au-Prince and GonaÔves and will provide a first-hand account and analysis of what is really happening in Haiti.
