Feb 11th PiH/Zanmi Lasante Fundraiser in Winnipeg

Considering the farcical attempts to dress up militarism in humanitarian clothing, real grassroots community based options to assist the relief effort in Haiti are needed more than ever.

An emergency relief fundraiser has been organized in Winnipeg on Feb 11th for Partners in Health/Zanmi Lasante’s incredible efforts in Haiti. Performers include John K. of the Weakerthans!!

Here are some other events across Canada.

Donations to highly recommended relief efforts which are actually respectful of Haitian sovereignty can be seen here:

…and finally, some context is provided by the excellent and uncompromising journalist and film-maker, John Pilger.
