Haitian community activist Lucie Tondreau will visit the Bay Area from South Florida with up-to-the minute news from grassroots organizers in Haiti and the Diaspora. Learn why Haitians continue to resist the US and UN occupation, and to demand the return of President Aristide. Ms. Tondreau is a member of Veye Yo and the Haitian Grassroots Coalition. Find out what you can do!
Ms. Tondreau will be introduced by Bay Area resident Jacques Depelchin. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Depelchin is the cofounder of Berkeley-based Ota Benga International Alliance for Peace and author most recently of Silences in African History: Between the Syndromes of Discovery and Abolition.
