Prime Minister Lamothe & Sean Penn do NOT Speak for the Haitian Majority
Protest the Lies about Haiti in SF
On Tuesday, November 19 in San Francisco, Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe and actor Sean Penn (named “Ambassador at Large for Haiti”by Michel Martelly), will spread the false message of the fraudulent Martelly government. Join Haiti Action Committee to protest against these lies, as well the corruption and repression of the Martelly/Lamothe government.
The people of Haiti are still in the midst of an occupation instigated by the United States and United Nations in 2004. As supporters of the Martelly government, which is in the process of bringing back dictatorship to Haiti, Prime Minister Lamothe and actor Sean Penn DO NOT speak in the interests of the Haitian majority.
Come stand in solidarity with the Haitian grassroots, who will be demonstrating the day before in Haiti, on the 210th anniversary of the Battle of Vertières (one of the last battles that sealed the victory of the Haitian Revolution).
Come stand in solidarity, to echo the demands of the Haitian majority:
•To protest the CORRUPTION and ILLEGALITY of the Martelly/Lamothe government.
•To protest the government’s widespread repression of the poor.
•To protest the INJUSTICE of the nearly 10-year-old US/UN occupation and the suffering it inflicts on the Haitian people.
•To support the right of the Haitian majority to fully participate in the running of their country, FREE from repression and terror.
•To support the right of Haitian children, women, and men, to have free access to education, food, jobs, housing, and healthcare.
