Resistance, Solidarity and Song with So An
Fri Mar 9 2007 (Updated 03/11/07)
Haitian Singer and Activist So-An Comes to the Bay Area
A hero of the Haitian Resistance, singer and grassroots organizer, Annette Auguste ("So An") was seized from her home by US Marines as part of the 2004 coup d'etat in Haiti, and was held as a political prisoner for over 2 years. Jail did not stop her from organizing or from singing, and she is still doing both today. Oakland will welcome So An on Saturday, March 10th, at 7PM at The Uptown, 401 26th St (between Broadway & Telegraph, near 19th St BART). Vukani Mawethu Freedom Song Choir, So An herself, and her husband Wilfrid, a master drummer, will perform.

"Haiti: We Must Kill the Bandits," the new 90-minute film by Kevin Pina, introduced by So An, will be screened on Wednesday, March 14th, at 7PM at the Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Ave., Oakland. This documentary shows how foreign occupiers -- from the US Marines 1915-34 to the US, France, Canada and the UN in the present day -- have tried to destroy Haiti's popular movement for freedom, sovereignty and democracy. It also tells the story of the Haitian Resistance that will not die.
