THE HAITI SUPPORT NETWORK (HSN) PRESENTS
FROM PHILLY TO HAITIi:
THE STRUGGLE FOR SOVEREIGNTY
This summer, the anti-neoliberal Lavalas Family party of former president
Jean-Bertrand Aristide swept nationwide parliamentary and municipal
elections in Haiti. Unhappy with the results, Washington is trying to
discredit those elections and to derail presidential elections set for
November, which Aristide is expected to win.
In the neighboring Dominican Republic, Haitians are being rounded up,
beaten, and deported by authorities. Tensions are growing and Dominican
troops, led by U.S. Special Forces, remain massed along the border,
poised for invasion.
Meanwhile, Haitians in the U.S., like African Americans and other
oppressed communities, are victims of growing police brutality and unfair
incarceration. Some even face execution, like Borgella Philistin, a
Haitian on Pennsylvania's death row alongside political prisoner Mumia
Abu-Jamal. Haitians are joining in the fight-back, for which Mumia has
become a living, world-renowned symbol.
