KBOO FUNDRAISER FOR HAITI
February 18th from 9 am to 10 pm

On Tuesday, January 12th, the nation of Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake which destroyed much of the capital city and surrounding areas. The earthquake hit after decades of structural adjustment programs imposed by the International Monetary Fund, which privatized much of the nation's infrastructure, and in the wake of two centuries of abuse of the Haitian people by its former colonizers, a decades-long US occupation, and US-supported military dictatorships. We will examine the history of Haiti, as well as the culture and music of the Haitian people. This will be a fundraiser for grassroots efforts to help the Haitian people rebuild -- not with charity, but with solidarity.
