Emergency Relief and Solidarity needed for Haiti

Bill Bumpus's picture

devastating 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti Tuesday January 12th. Thousands
have been killed, and much Port au Prince leveled. This follows a
series of deadly hurricanes in late 2008, and decades of
foreign-influenced economic terrorism, culminating in a US-led coup in
2004, and continuing UN occupation. Haiti, the poorest nation in the
Western Hemisphere, is the only country to successfully liberate itself
from slavery and the former colonial masters have not let them forget.
Most people live on less than $2 a day, and many on less than $1. In
April 2008 representatives of the ISC participated in an IWW delegation
to Haiti where they met with workers and peasants struggling against
neo-liberal slavery. We pledged our continued support to their
struggle, and FW's donated generously to support their organizing, and
again for aid following the hurricanes. Currently communications with
Haiti are nearly impossible, but no doubt they will need our help again.

delegation made a short video about our trip, "Haiti's Tourniquet"
which we're selling for $15 (includes shipping) to raise money for our
comrades in Haiti, and any donations large or small are greatly
