In San Francisco, Wednesday, Feb 7, 2007 - Gather at 4:30 pm for a 5 pm Rally at Powell & Market (Powell St. BART) Followed by a March down Market to a picket at the Brazilian Consulate, 300Montgomery (between Pine & California). Brazil commands the UN military force in Haiti.

The foreign military occupation of Haiti continues. The 8000 UN troops are a proxy force for the US, French and Canadian soldiers who overthrew Haiti's government in a 2004 coup. UN troops and police-controlled death squads routinely assault communities that support the Lavalas grassroots democracy movement. They are responsible for killings, sexual abuse, beatings, house burnings, arbitrary arrests, and prolonged, illegal detention of people without any charges.

In the pre-dawn of December 22nd, 400 Brazilian-led UN troops began a day-long raid in Cite Soleil -- an operation on the scale of the July 6, 2005 UN massacre in the same poor, working-class community. They fired heavy weapons from tanks and helicopters into people's homes. Many residents were killed and wounded. Local citizens were outraged that UN troops blocked Red Cross access to the area, refusing medical care to people they had injured, including numerous children.

The grassroots movement in Haiti has called for coordinated international protests on February 7, to raise the demand: All foreign occupation forces must leave Haiti now!

Let us act now in solidarity with our Haitian sisters and brothers, whose unbreakable spirit, in the face of severe repression, won’t stop.
