Description

A panel discussion on history, politics, and culture with Moise St. Louis, Zach Niles, and Robin Lloyd with Doreen Kraft as moderator.

We are holding this event at a time when many Haitians in the U.S. are considering relocating to Canada out of fear that Trump will not renew their special visas granted after the hurricane. We hope our discussion will provide insights into the unique history and lively culture of the Haitian people.

Moise St. Louis is the Associate Dean of Students and Director of Multicultural Student Services at St Micheal's College and a member of the Haitian community of Vermont. Zach Niles is the American producer of the Haitian band Lakou Mizik, formed after the earthquake of 2010 in an effort to bring healing and hope to the ravaged community. He has also been influential in the formation of an Artists Institute and School in Jacmel, Haiti. Robin and Doreen worked on the animated film "Black Dawn" in Haiti in the ‘70s, and Robin returned to produce several documentaries on Haitian culture and economy.

Proposed Bill Allows Warrantless Surveillance

If you’re like most people in the U.S., you’ve never heard of Section 702. It’s a little known surveillance law that is part of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Section 702 permits the government to collect the content of communications of “targets” who are “non-Americans” located abroad, including communications they may have with Americans. The short version is this: Section 702 has loopholes that expand state surveillance of both immigrant and citizen people of color.
