JOIN WITH LABOR and human rights activists in a presentation on the role of the AFL-CIO in Hiati.

Jeb Sprague is a researcher and graduate student in History at California State University of Long Beach. He will be reporting on the role of the AFL-CIO's Solidarity Center in Haiti. The AFL-CIO receives over $33 million dollars from the National Endowment for Democracy for the international operations of the AFL-CIO and Sprague has been researching how this money was used in Haiti. As a result of the publication of some of his research results, officials of the AFL-CIO American Center For International Labor Solidarity (ACILS) have contacted his professors at his school and sought to discredit him.

Sprague will outline why this is taking place. Also speaking will be Pierre LaBossiere of the Haiti Action Committee which is fighting to defend the human rights of the Haitian people and Dave Welsh who recently went on a labor tour of Haiti.

Please bring a dish.
