May 1st Immigrant Boycott Edition

  • Alterpresse published (kreyol) a press release by GARR, a Haitian committee of support to refugees and the repatriated, which supports today's immigrant strike and boycott in the US. "The same situation is developing in the Dominican Republic for many Haitian workers there, says GARR's Martine Dorvilas. While D.R. government representatives have met repeatedly with American officials in defense of their undocumented citizens there, that same government continues repatriating Haitian workers who have contributed to the Dominican economy for decades ... GARR asks D.R.'s government to give Haitian workers who have lived in the D.R. for more than 10 years residency." (Cross-posted at GlobalVoices.)

  • Haitian diaspora blogger Nightshift Chronicles has a very interesting post on Garifunas, Maria Elena Maximo (i.e. immigrants who rob undocumented immigrants of their life savings) and today's boycott.
