Bitter Cane - Haiti under the Duvaliers
Thursday, August 2

$5-10, no one turned away
Bitter Cane was filmed clandestinely in Haiti in the 1970s during the Duvalier dictatorship. It accurately portrays the conditions and repression under which Haitians lived at that time and their struggle in the US for justice and immigrants rights.
With the recent policies promoted by the fraudulently "selected" Martelly government, many Haitians fear the repeat of these terrible times. Join Haiti Action Committee for the film and discussion about Haiti, past and present.
Co-sponsored by the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists, East Bay Sanctuary Covenant, and the Ecumenical Peace Institute
