HAITI: A CALL TO ACTION

Sunday, March 3rd, 1-3 pm

East Side Arts Alliance

2277 International Blvd.

Oakland, CA

On the 20th anniversary of the 2004 coup that overthrew the democratically elected administration of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and the Fanmi Lavalas Party, we commemorate the continued resistance of Haiti’s grassroots movement.

 

Featured speakers via zoom: Dr. Maryse Narcisse and Joel Edouard “Pacha” Vorbe, members of the Fanmi Lavalas Executive Committee.

 

Haiti’s Lavalas governments made historic advances in health care, women’s rights, housing, economic justice, food sovereignty and education.

 

The 2004 coup reversed these gains and ushered in 20 years of foreign occupation, dictatorship and terror, and a wave of neoliberal economic policies that have created a disaster in Haiti.

 

But the achievements of the Aristide administrations are etched deep in the soul of Haiti and remain a foundation for Haiti’s future.

 

Join us for this special event with leaders of Fanmi Lavalas, the people’s party of Haiti.
