STILL IN JAIL

An evening in solidarity with Political Prisoners in Haiti and Puerto Rico

* Pierre Labossiere, Haitian community activist, will speak on the US/UN Dirty War Against Haiti. Pierre will report on his recent trip to Haiti during the inauguration of President Preval.

* Film showing: La Fanmi Selavi, filmed at a center for street children found­ed by President Aristide in 1986. This powerful film highlights the struggle for children’s rights in Haiti and includes interviews with five children, their teachers, and President Aristide himself.
