Steps of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square
Please join Lovinsky supporters this Wednesday, August 12th, to observe the second anniversary of the kidnapping and disappearance of grassroots organizer and leader, Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine.
Lovinsky was kidnapped and disappeared in Haiti on August 12th, 2007 shortly after meeting with a US-Canadian human rights delegation. As a member of Fanmi Lavalas, Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine was an extraordinary grassroots organizer and leading advocate for the poor, including street children, teenage mothers and victims of torture.
Despite massive international actions demanding an investigation into Lovinsky's disappearance, there has been absolutely no serious effort on the part of the UN authorities in Haiti and the Haitian government headed by Rene Preval to locate Lovinsky and secure his safe return, or hold accountable those responsible for his disappearance.
Where is Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine and what happened to him? Join with Haiti's grassroots movement and activists around the globe to demand an accounting for his disappearance. End the US/UN occupation, Brazil out of Haiti, free the political prisoners, return President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
