Monday, July 1, 2019: Women Confront the Crisis in Haiti

Lavalas rally

In this episode of KPFA Women's Magazine we talk about how women are coping with an escalation of government-sponsored violence in Haiti, and a political crisis we hear little about but which has been going on for over a year. Judith Mirkinson, president of the SF Bay Chapter of the National Lawyers' Guild and the Comfort Women Justice Coalition and Leslie Mullin, long-time member of the Haiti Action Committee, talk about what they learned on recent trips to Haiti. Haitians have been in the streets for almost a year protesting government theft of millions of dollars. In November, paramilitaries associated with the Haitian army and police massacred dozens of civilians in the neighborhood of LaSaline, as UN troops did nothing to protect the people.
