20 January 2010, Edmonton - We all know
about the tragedy and devastation caused by the
earthquake in Haiti. Record amounts of money have
been donated for aid and charity events are being
organized around the world. This is not one of
those events.
Yes, this is a fundraiser, but it is not about charity,
nor is it strictly about the earthquake. It is about
centuries of economic and political exploitation,
oppression and betrayal. It is about acknowledging
the role that powerful nations, such as Canada, have
played in contributing to the current state of affairs. It
is about all of us - as global citizens - doing our part
to restore dignity to the Haitian people on their own
terms.
This is a fundraiser for grassroots organizations that
have been working on the ground in Haiti for years,
or even decades.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to:
BATAY OUVRIYE is an organization that regroups
factory unions and committees, workers’
associations and militants, all struggling in Haiti for
the construction of an independent, combative and
democratic union movement, and to organize wageworkers,
self-employed workers as well as the
unemployed for the defense of their rights.
(http://www.batayouvriye.org/English/)
ZANMI LASANTE (Partners in Health, Haiti) – At its
root, our mission is both medical and moral. It is
based on solidarity, rather than charity alone. When
a person in Peru, or Siberia, or rural Haiti falls ill, PIH
uses all of the means at our disposal to make them
well – from pressuring drug manufacturers, to
lobbying policy makers, to providing medical care
and social services. Whatever it takes. Just as we
would do if a member of our own family – or we
ourselves – were ill.
