HAITI ACTION COMMITTEE CALLS FOR EMERGENCY DEMONSTRATION

HAITI - AID THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST AND DO IT NOW!
PROTEST MONDAY, JANUARY 25 5PM
POWELL AND MARKET, SAN FRANCISCO

Respect Haiti!
Aid, Not Troops! Life, Not Death, for Haiti!

As the death count rises in Haiti, the effects of a catastrophic 
natural disaster are compounded - as in Hurricane Katrina - by 
political failure, by the consequence of generations of U.S. 
intervention in Haiti.  Six years after it forced out the democratic 
Aristide government, and replaced it with a brutal coup regime, the 
U.S. is advancing a massive military operation in Haiti.  While 
thousands of American troops amass in Port-au-Prince, thousands of 
Haitians are dying from lack of water and medicine, starving while 
food supplies sit on the airport tarmac.

This is a time for aid, not charity; for solidarity, not a calculated 
U.S. military take-over. Demand accountability of the US government 
and the United Nations. Demand respect for the resiliency and courage 
of the Haitian people, and the return President Jean-Bertrand 
Aristide to his homeland, as the vast majority of Haiti's people demand.

PRIORITIZE MEDICAL AND HUMANITARIAN RELIEF, NOT MILITARY OCCUPATION.

    * Get the people of Port-au-Prince clean water, food, and medical 
treatment now
    * Allow President Aristide to return to Haiti from forced exile 
in South Africa.
    * Respect human rights. Do not criminalize a traumatized 
population that needs aid!
SPREAD THE WORD. LET'S MAKE THIS INTERNATIONAL
