Show Notes:

This past August 26th, I was joined by special guest Laurence Fabre of C.R.I.M.E. (Committee for the Reimbursement of the Indemnity Money Extorted from Haiti).

CRIME, an international group of activists who have impersonated French government officials, have called on the French government to repay Haiti, its former colony, more than $20 billion that had been extorted in the 19th century as penalty for Haiti's fully-deserved and arduous revolution.

What can we expect from one of the most boundlessly and violently cruel of the European colonizers? CRIME explains their actions. Plus, the mechanics of public relations 101 for good prank activism measure.
