SOLIDARITY WITH HAITIAN IMMIGRANT WORKERS & HAITIAN-DOMINICAN WORKERS IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC


Informational Picketing

Friday December 9, 2005
5:00 P.M. -- 6:30 P.M.
Dominican Consulate
1501 Broadway
At Times Square between 43rd & 44th Streets

In light of the continued repression, deportations and violence against the
Haitian Immigrant Workers and Haitian-Dominican Workers by the Dominican
Government and State, we are building a campaign with the aim of stopping
the injustice against those workers. We know those workers are victims of
continued exploitation by the Dominican Bourgeoisie and trafficking on both
sides of the Island. The Dominican bourgeoisie accumulates big wealth on the
backs of those workers. Commercial trade between Haiti and the Dominican
Republic has produced more than $800 million dollars a year in favor of the
Dominican Capitalists.

The Dominican Government is obligated to provide the workers protection
according to International Law.

We demand that the Dominican Government:

--Stop all deportations of Haitian Immigrant Workers & Haitian-Dominican
Workers
--Stop Racist attacks against the Haitian Immigrant Workers &
Haitian-Dominican Workers
--Stop the trafficking of Haitian Immigrant Workers & Haitian-Dominican Workers
--Grant General Amnesty to the Haitian Immigrant Workers & Haitian-Dominican
Workers

Organized by the Batay Ouvriye Solidarity Network
Sponsors: Grassroots Haiti Solidarity Committee, the Nicaragua Solidarity
