Join us for a panel discussion with Elaine Briére, filmmaker of “Haiti Betrayed,” and special Haitian-Canadian guests Jafrikayiti Jean Saint-Vil, Gaby Paul and Garry Auguste, who will discuss the current crisis in Haiti and Canada's role past and present. The event is being held to remember the coup orchestrated by Canada, France & the United States against the democratically elected Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and to demand accountability. It is also to mark Black History Month and to stand in solidarity with the people of Haiti.
