Midcoast Peace & Justice Group
committed to positive change through non-violent action
From October 1-7, 2011, SOA WATCH led a human rights delegation to Haiti with a focus on gaining firsthand knowledge of the effects of a 7-year military occupation by 13,000 troops and police of MINUSTAH (UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti), while also looking at concrete expressions of U.S. foreign policy towards Haiti. In addition, the delegation of 17 activists from around the U.S. visited numerous positive initiatives organized and carried out by Haitians that promote the dignity and sovereignty of their nation.
