Film & Panel “Haiti Betrayed: Canada’s Role In the Current Crisis”

Thursday, Feb. 16 from 7:30-9:00 pm ET
Join us for a free online panel discussion with Elaine Briére, filmmaker of “Haiti Betrayed,” special guest Georges Gabrielle Paul from Jérémie, Haiti and Haitian-Canadian activists Jafrikayiti Jean Saint-Vil and Garry Auguste, who will discuss the current crisis in Haiti and Canada’s role past and present. The event is being held to remember the coup orchestrated by Canada, France and the United States against the democratically elected Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004 and to demand accountability. It is also held to recognize Black History Month and to stand in solidarity with the Haitian people who continue to resist the ongoing neocolonial oppression and violence by Canada and the CORE group in their country.
You are encouraged to watch the film “Haiti Betrayed” before the panel discussion. The film is available for free at (passcode: HB1915).
