Présentation et programme du GHT [Guadeloupe Haiti Tour] de Elie Domota & Fignolé St Cyr (dirigeant de la CATH) dans 8 grandes villes des Etats Unis, du 5 au 14 juillet 2009.

In Haiti, the unions are playing a major role in the struggle to restore democracy after the U.S. government intervened in the 1990s to remove then President Arisitide. A contingent of U.N. peace keepers continue to occupy much of the country.

Earlier this year, the trade unions of the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe led a powerful “fight back” against the deepening worldwide economic crisis. United in a coalition of 50 organizations, the workers and people of Guadeloupe won a $250 per month wage increase for low-wage workers, more jobs for youth, a reduction in the prices of basic necessities, and a moratorium on home foreclosures.

The struggles of workers in Haiti and Guadeloupe may sound familiar to many of our members and advocates of workers’ rights in America.

Come find out more about the struggles of the labor movement elsewhere in our hemisphere and how we can “fight back” against the massive loss of jobs, health care, pensions and homes here in the U.S.A.

Dear Sisters and Brothers :

We invite you to join us in welcoming two important union and mass-movement leaders from the Caribbean to the United States. Elie Domota from Guadeloupe and Fignolé St. Cyr from Haiti will be traveling to eight U.S. cities from July 5 to 14. [See tour schedule below.]

Fignolé St Cyr

Fignolé St. Cyr is the general secretary of the Autonomous Confederation of Haitian Workers (CATH) and convener of the Third Caribbean Conference "To Defend Haiti Is to Defend Ourselves !" He is also an organizer of the International Commission of Inquiry on the UN Occupation of Haiti.

Earlier this year, the trade unions of the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe led a powerful fight-back against the deepening worldwide economic crisis. United in the LKP, a coalition of 47 organizations, the workers and people of Guadeloupe waged a powerful 44-day nationwide general strike that won a $250/month wage increase for low-wage workers, more jobs for youth, a reduction in the prices of basic necessities, and a moratorium on home foreclosures.

In Haiti, the unions are playing a major role in the struggle to restore democracy after the U.S. government removed democratically elected President Bertrand Aristide — and U.N. troops continue to occupy the country, killing activists who protest the occupation and demand their national, social, democratic, and economic rights.

Brothers Domota and Fignolé will be accompanied by Raymond Gama from the LKP Strike Collective in Guadeloupe.

Come find out more about this great victory in Guadeloupe and learn about some of the important lessons of this struggle that we can draw to promote the fight-back here in the United States against the massive loss of jobs, healthcare, pensions, and homes. Come find out more about what we can do here to stop the UN occupation of Haiti, so that the Haitian people can reclaim their sovereignty, self-determination and democratic rights — free from all foreign intervention.

This 10-day Guadeloupe-Haiti Tour USA has been initiated by the International Liaison Committee of Workers and Peoples (ILC), the Free Mumia Committee of New York, HUERA, the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu Jamal, the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement (MXGM), the Interreligious Foundation of Community Organizations (IFCO), and The Organizer Newspaper.

In each of the eight cities of the tour, local coalitions have come together to organize the tour, with many additional sponsoring and endorsing organizations. The list of these organizations is listed in the tour schedule below.

The Guadeloupe-Haiti Tour USA is a project of the Interreligious Foundation of Community Organizations Nonprofit, 501c3.

Please join with us in welcoming these two great union leaders and in helping to build a solid support base for the unions of Guadeloupe and Haiti in their struggles for workers’ and people’s rights.

In Solidarity and Struggle for Workers’ and People’s Rights,
