Report Back from Haiti
Building Democracy from the Grassroots

BFUU Fellowship Hall

Berkeley
Saturday, November 10th
7:00 P.M.

This summer, members of the Haiti Action 
Committee, along with Dr. Akinyele Umoja of the 
Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, traveled to 
Haiti.  We met with grassroots activists, 
political prisoners and human rights workers. We 
heard the continuing calls for the return of 
former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. We saw 
close-up the resistance to the U.S./U.N. occupation.

Throughout our trip, Haitian sisters and brothers 
expressed their support for the people of New 
Orleans and the Gulf Coast.  They sent solidarity 
to the San Francisco 8 Black Panther Party 
veterans/political prisoners now facing 
trial.  And they made it clear that their fight 
for justice and democracy in Haiti is one and the 
same as the fight for freedom here.

We are holding this event in solidarity with 
Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine, a Haitian human rights 
advocate who has not been heard from since August 
12th and is presumed kidnapped. We urge everyone 
to continue to work for his safe return.

Join us for an evening of solidarity with the people of Haiti.

Program to include:
Ø    Akinyele Umoja – Associate Professor of 
African American Studies at University of Georgia 
in Atlanta. Dr. Umoja is an activist/scholar who 
has participated for over 35 years in the Black 
liberation struggle. He is a founding member of 
the New Afrikan Peoples Organization and the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.
Ø    Richard Brown – Black Panther Party Veteran 
and member of the San Francisco 8.
Ø    Slide Presentation from the recent delegation to Haiti.
