Beloved Haitian Priest and Recent Political Prisoner

Stanford University

Friday January 28, 7:00 pm

Braun Auditorium (Mudd Chemistry Building)*

Reception to meet Father Jean-Juste 6-7 pm in the lobby in front of

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.
