Urgent Help Needed for Haiti

 In Uncategorized

There is some good commentary from knowledgeable sources about how neo-liberal and economic globalization policies have exacerbated the suffering from the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti, mostly how the destruction of the subsistence farming economy drove people to Port-au-Prince, where families are forced to live in rather flimsy housing, in search of manufacturing jobs  (which of course has happened in other parts of the Americas due to “free trade” policies, I saw it myself last September in the huge shantytowns outside Mexico City).

But of course right now the priority is to get relief aid into a devastated country. Our friends at the American Friends Service Committee and TransAfrica have links for online donations, please give generously.

    What’s the point? Can they stand on their own? Enfless help just feed the laziness of people.
