*Demanding Justice for Haiti: A TEACH-IN for accountability in aid and U.S.
* *
4-7 pm, November 12 at Encuentro 5
33 Harrison Ave (Downtown Crossing/Chinatown on the T*)

*Speakers, film clips, music & discussion on the major questions affecting
Haiti, 10 months on.  Despite the earthquake, cholera, and hurricanes, why
is aid money still held up?  What do Haitians see as a vision for their
future?  How can we support them?*

Come meet with a diverse group of students, Haiti activists, and community
members.  Discussion will focus on the key issues facing the 1.5 million
displaced living in camps, what they have to say, and what our government
has to do with it.  We will draw connections between historical policy and
the current aid effort.  We hope to emerge with action ideas on how, as a
group, we can work to effect concrete change.

We will also be releasing a petition calling for a release of the US aid
money, provision of basic needs & shelter, and Haitian inclusion and
leadership at all levels.  If your organization is interested in
co-sponsoring this via publicizing & supporting the petition, let us know!
