A report back and fundraiser for community radio in Haiti by a recent delegation to Haiti with activists from Haiti Action Committee, BAJI-Oakland, and Global Women’s Strike. Hear Margaret Prescod, Pierre Labossiere, Devonte Jackson, Walter Riley and Leslie Mullin report on the unbreakable resistance of the people of Haiti, who persevere in the face of US-orchestrated coups, stolen elections, violent repression and natural disasters worsened by corporate greed and government corruption.
Eyewitness accounts of the first graduation ceremony at the University of the Aristide Foundation [UniFA]; community education through radio; local food production; and grassroots mobilizations against corruption, repression and occupation.
We will share news about meetings with activists from Haiti’s popular movement including youth, agricultural workers, market women, peasant movement leaders, school teachers, human rights attorneys, and journalists/reporters. We hope you will join us!
