HAITI: Emergency Demo – SF, Jan. 25: “Prioritize Medical and Humanitarian Relief, Not Military Occupation!”

Posted on January 21, 2010


Haiti Action Committee is calling an emergency demonstration this coming Monday, 1/25, in San Fencisco to demand PRIORITIZE MEDICAL AND HUMANITARIAN RELIEF, NOT MILITARY OCCUPATION.  We encourage people in cities throughout the world to join us where you are and make the 25th an International day of action. We will send out an action alert soon.

 HAITI – AID THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST AND DO IT NOW!
  
PROTEST MONDAY, JANUARY 25 5PM
POWELL AND MARKET, SAN FRANCISCO
   
Respect Haiti!  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 of 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 treatment now
  • 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
