IWW International Solidarity Delegation Haiti

6:00pm – 9:00pm

Auditorium of St. Stephen’s Church
1525 Newton Streen NW

On January 12th, 2010, a 7.0 Earthquake shook Haiti and destroyed much of the country. Nearly 100,000 people in a country of 10 million are feared dead. How did it get to this point? Examining nearly two centuries of military intervention, United States government foreign policy in propping up dictators, and neo-liberalism brings us to today.

Please join us for an Educational Benefit event with Nathaniel Miller, who travelled to Haiti one year ago as part of a Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) delegation. They will explore the recent history of capitalism and US military intervention in Haiti, show pictures of their travels, and a 20 minute movie.

The Confederation of Haitian Workers (CTH) invited an Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) delegation to Haiti to learn about their fight against “le plan neoliberal” and recruit help in the form of material aid and solidarity. The delegation was in Haiti April 24 to May 5 2008, two weeks after the country erupted in mass protest at burgeoning food prices. This video shares the stories and experiences.

Donations will be accepted at the door. 50% of donations recieved that evening will go towards Partners in Health, An organization that has been bringing modern medical care to poor communities in Haiti for 20 years.
