In 2004, the U.S. government engineered a coup d’etat against the elected president of Haiti, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Currently foreign troops occupy Haiti, denying the Haitian people their sovereignty. In 2009, Honduran troops with the complicity of the United States, kidnapped and expelled the elected president, Manuel Zelaya. Today there is a coup government in Honduras.

Come to a public forum to learn about the people’s struggle for democracy in the fraternal countries of Honduras and Haiti.

Featured speakers:
Porfirio Quintano
Member of Hondurans in Resistance of Northern California, Delegate to the National Assembly of the National Honduran Front of Popular Resistance (FNRP)

Pierre Labossiére
Co-founder and leader of the Haiti Action Committee, and organizer of campaigns to support the Haitian people; union activist
