Below, we are sharing a leaflet from our sisters and brothers in Batay Ouvriye, the autonomous worker's movement in Haiiti. The Haitian state raised the fuel prices 30-50% (in accordance to a new agreement with the IMF for over $90 million in aid).
After a May Day march in Haiti, BO planned two other days of protest against the bourgeoisie, the imperialist and the Haitian State apparatus.
Textile workers in Haiti ask that we pressure H&H sweatshop (where clothing for retailers like Walmart is produced) to rehire the workers who were fired, respect the right to organize, and to pay the wages workers demand.
The situation with workers in Haiti is intensifying. The autonomous workers movement (Batay Ouvriye) is continuing its struggle to raise their minimum wage from the current 300 Gourdes (a little less than $5 US a day) to 800 Gourdes (about $12 US) among other demands.
