From: Haiti Action Committee <email@example.com>
Call to Action ? Friday, September 30th
International Day in Solidarity with Haiti
San Francisco Federal Building
450 Golden Gate Ave (between Larkin & Polk)
8AM Rally & Picket
This is a critical moment for Haiti. Popular resistance to the coup regime
remains strong, but repression has intensified. Backed by the United States,
the United Nations, France and Canada, the coup regime continues its assault on
the poor majority, targeting especially leaders and supporters of the Lavalas
grassroots democracy movement.
September 30th is the anniversary of the US-orchestrated coup that overthrew
President Aristide in 1991. Haiti?s grassroots popular movement will mobilize
in Port-au-Prince and other areas, demanding the return of their elected
government and President Aristide, an end to U.S. and UN-supported massacres,
and the release of over a thousand political prisoners. They will be denouncing
the sham election?held under military occupation -- now being planned by the
coup leaders to legitimize their rule.
This year, they will not be alone. In cities all over the world, from Santiago,
Chile and Montreal, Canada to Dublin, Ireland and the Bay Area, people are
standing up against the trampling of Haiti?s sovereignty. Our solidarity can
play an important role in this struggle of Haiti?s poor majority. Now is the
time to take a stand. We demand:
· Stop the Massacres of the Poor by UN troops, Haitian National Police
and paramilitary mercenaries under police control.
· Restore the Democratically Elected Government of President Aristide
· Free Fr. Jean-Juste, So? Anne, Prime Minister Neptune ? and ALL the
· End the Brutal US/UN Occupation ? Restore Haiti?s Sovereignty
· No coerced sham elections.
