PAX CHRISTI VOLUNTEERS FROM HAITI08/15/06
Three men who work with Pax Christi-Haiti joined us for this segment. Junior St. Vil, Vladimir LaGuerre and Daniel Tillas spoke with WMNF's Rob Lorei about political conditions in Haiti, the economic development needs, the deposing of President Aristide, relations between the Dominican Republic and Haiti, working conditions in Haiti's factories, deforestation and efforts to use non-violence as a tool for change. St. Vil and Tillas also have written a book of poetry to describe conditions in Haiti called CRY FOR HOPE. The local sponsoring church is St. Paul's in St. Petersburg.
