26722: Kawonabo: (announce) Informational Picketing in front of Dominican Consulate (fwd)
SOLIDARITY WITH HAITIAN IMMIGRANT WORKERS
& HAITIAN-DOMINICAN WORKERS
IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Thursday December 1, 2005
5:00 P.M. ? 7:00 P.M.
1501 New Broadway
At Times Square between 42nd & 43rd Streets
In light of the continued repression, deportations and violence against the
Haitian Immigrant Workers and Haitian-Dominican Workers by the Dominican
Government and State, we are building a campaign with the aim of stopping the
injustice against those workers. We know those workers are victims of continued
exploitation by the Dominican Bourgeoisie and trafficking on both sides of the
Island. The Dominican bourgeoisie accumulates big wealth on the backs of those
workers. Commercial trade between Haiti and the Dominican Republic has produced
more than $800 million dollars a year in favor of the Dominican Capitalists.
The Dominican Government is obligated to provide the workers protection
according to International Law.
We demand that the Dominican Government:
Stop all deportations of Haitian Immigrant Workers & Haitian-Dominican Workers
Stop Racist attacks against the Haitian Immigrant Workers & Haitian-Dominican
Stop the trafficking of Haitian Immigrant Workers & Haitian-Dominican Workers
General Amnesty for the Haitian Immigrant Workers & Haitian-Dominican Workers
Organized by the Batay Ouvriye Solidarity Network
Sponsors: Grassroots Haiti Solidarity Committee, the Nicaragua Solidarity
Network, S.E.L.A., Brooklyn Greens(This is a partial list of sponsors...More
will be added). It is part of a series of picket lines. Other potential dates
are December 9 and 15.
