Five years after the overthrow of democracy in Haiti ... taking account

Wednesday, March 4, 2009 - 22:00 to Thursday, March 5, 2009 - 02:00

Every social and economic indicator in Haiti has shown a decline since 2004. Food production is down and hunger is up. School enrollments, medical facilities, house construction, road repair and construction, and economic investment are all in sharp decline. The ministries of the Haitian government have been deliberately incapcitated and underfunded as a result of foreign governments in Haiti.

Please join the "Toronto Haiti Action Committee" and "Students in Solidarity with Haiti" as we take account of the aftermath of the Canadian, American and French coup d'etat in Haiti with a film screening and public discussion. There will be a screening of acclaimed documentary "Haiti: We Must Kill the Bandits" and presentations by the filmmaker Kevin Pina, and former Haitian parliamentarian, Jean Candio.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
