The earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12 has caused extensive 
damage and the deaths of untold numbers of people. The U.S. 
administration has announced the deployment of 10,000 troops and a 
humanitarian relief effort to the tune of $100 million, a paltry amount 
compared to the $741 billion thrown to the Pentagon for 2010.

The history of U.S. involvement with Haiti goes back to the 1700s when 
the African people rose up against French slavery and imperialism. Haiti 
won its independence in 1804, but was not recognized by the U.S. until 
the Civil War. Haiti has suffered a blockade for over 200 years. The 
U.S. has militarily occupied Haiti on numerous occasions from 1915-1934, 
1994, 2004 and 2010.

Come to this public meeting to find out the true history of Haiti and 
what you can do to help the surviving victims of the earthquake. We must 
demand the permanent lifting of the deportation orders on Haitians, the 
withdrawal of U.S. military troops from the country, self-determination 
for the people of Haiti, and the return of the ousted President Jean 
Bertrand Aristide, who was overthrown by the U.S. and exiled in 2004.
