I will no longer apologise for my emotional responses, even in institutional spaces, to the historic and continued brutalisation of my ancestors and communities. I will shed my tears, express my rage, and live loudly my joy.
We’re looking forward to this fantastic event on #Colonialism #occupation and the #UN #MINUSTAH withdrawal from #Haiti with @Birtejulia @xav_math @charlesforsdick @LivUni on 23 October. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/haiti-colonialism-occupation-and-the-un-tickets-76880751397?ref=eios
Great piece from @HaitiSG exec @Feedehoog on the fraught situation continuing to develop in the Bahamas. Draws on keen analysis & anonymous testimonies from Grand Abaco to highlight the troubles facing the Haitian community - hardest hit by Hurricane Dorian https://twitter.com/HaitiSG/status/1180796298947125248
"For [Trump], any moral humanitarian obligation to provide safe conditions to those seeking refuge is superceded by his prejudice against Haitians who, n his eyes, do not meet the requisite whiteness to be deserving of safety" @Feedehoog https://haitisupportgroup.org/haiti-bahamas-community-hurricane-dorian-threatened/
