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
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
* 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
DONATE TO HAITI EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND:
