What’s Going On in Haiti
Haiti Action’s Leslie Mullin
Tuesday, January 18, 1 PM
Fireside Room, Unitarian Center
1187 Franklin St., (at Geary)

Earthquake, rains, cholera, and an imposed election: Haiti copes with lack of food, water, tents, jobs, and with brutal repression, while the US and Canada, who want to remodel Haiti as a tropical sweatshop withhold most of their aid.   Haiti Action’s Leslie Mullin  was in  Haiti in August visiting refugee camps and meeting with grassroots Haitian  women’s groups which are determined to resist domination. We will review  US involvement, the Aristide’s ouster, and hear about the roles of NGOs and the UN. Are they  serving any useful purpose? What kinds of grassroots movements offer hope? How can we help?   Leslie Mullin has also reported on the cholera outbreak,  Haiti’s grassroots movements,   and the role of the US and UN
