International Struggle for Human Rights

Why is it that black people in America seem not to care about politics in other countries? I guess even African American bloggers are not interested in Human Rights issues in other countries. Well it seems so. Take for instance the issue of Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine, a Haitian human rights activist and the head of Fondasyon Trant Septanm.




ACTION ALERT


Haitian Human Rights Activist Abducted


The Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network (HLLN) has reason to fear for the safety of Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine, a Haitian human rights activist and the head of Fondasyon Trant Septanm, missing since August 12, 2007 after meeting with a U.S. delegation that was visiting Haiti. Pierre-Antoine is in imminent danger of human rights abuse. According to an August 15, 2007 Associated Press report, police and supporters say Pierre-Antoine may have been kidnapped. Pierre-Antoine has received numerous death threats from the coup d'etat foreign intervention death squads, paramilitaries and their civil arm factions in Haiti throughout the years from 1991 to the present.
