Music by Freedom Song Network

Fr. Jean-Juste is one of Haiti's most respected human rights 
advocates. November 21 marked four months since he was illegally 
arrested and imprisoned. The coup regime in Haiti refuses to release 
him, despite having no evidence of wrongdoing. December 10 is Human 
Rights Day. There will be a large demonstration in Miami on this day 
for the release of Fr. Jean-Juste and all of Haiti's political 
prisoners. Please join us for this candlelight vigil in solidarity 
with our courageous brother, and with the Haitian community in Miami.

Free will offering to support Fr. Jean-Juste's work among 
impoverished children and the work of the Haiti Action Committee.

Cosponsored by Trinity United Methodist Church of Berkeley.

For more information call 510-483-7481

Be sure to continue circulating the petitions to the Catholic Bishops 
about Jean-Juste, sent separately.

Prayers for Father Jean-Juste and all Haitian political prisoners 
will be said at various worship services in the Bay Area on the 
weekend of December 10 --joining these congregations, too, with this 
modest but important activity for Haiti on both coasts.\
