Bay Area Protests to Commemorate First Coup Against Aristide

 
September 30th is the anniversary of the first US-sponsored coup that ousted President Aristide in 1991. An international day of action has been called for September 30th by the Fondasyon Trant Septanm (September Thirtieth Foundation). People of the world who love justice and freedom are encouraged to adopt the organization's idea of having a demonstration on the 30th, denouncing the dictatorship and the US/UN repression in Haiti, putting in place an International Coalition to work for the return of democracy in Haiti, demanding the return of the President elected by the people, and establishing a fund, administered by the September 30th Foundation, to support the victims of the repression in Haiti.

There will be demonstrations in two Bay Area cities on Friday, September 30th. In San Francisco, there will be a rally and picket at 9:00am at the Federal Building at 450 Golden Gate. There will be two protests in San Jose that day- the first will be a lunchtime protest at 11:30am-1 pm at French Consulate, 2nd Street and Santa Clara, and the second will be from 4:30-6pm at the Federal Building at 2nd Street near San Carlos. Thus far there are protests scheduled for 31 other cities around the world.
