Prominent Haitian Activist and Folk Singer

NEWS FLASH: Annette Auguste, known as Sò Anne, was arrested by US marines in May 2004 at home in Port au Prince along with her friends and family including two children. She was held in prison for over two years by the UN occupation, and only released August 2006 after international pressure to free her led by the grassroots in Haiti.

Demands of the Strike

· Payment for all caring work - in wages, pensions, land & other resources. What is more valuable than raising children & caring for others? Invest in life & welfare, not military budgets or prisons

· Pay equity for all, women & men, in the global market.

· Food security for breastfeeding mothers, paid maternity leave and maternity breaks. Stop penalizing us for being women.

· Don't pay 'Third World debt'. We owe nothing, they owe us.

· Accessible clean water, healthcare, housing, transport, literacy.

· Non-polluting energy & technology which shortens the hours we work. We all need cookers, fridges, washing machines, computers, & time off!

· Protection & asylum from all violence & persecution, including by family members & people in positions of authority.

· Freedom of movement. Capital travels freely, why not people?
