Selma James speaking at Latin America Conference 2019, Saturday 23 November

Black lives Matter: Resisting Trump from Haiti & the Caribbean to the US In the era of Trump, racism is on the rise in the Americas, but countries such as Cuba, Bolivia and Venezuela show that the cause of black liberation can be advanced with self-organisation and progressive policies. The history and current uprising in Haiti shows the power of protest and the strength of the people united against austerity. It reminds us of Haiti’s revolutionary history and its enormous contribution to the liberation of the Americas. Chair: Denis Fernando, Rainbow Coalition against Racism  Myriam Kane, Stand Up to Racism  Selma James, GWS working group in support of the grassroots Haitian movement  Luke Daniels, Caribbean Labour Solidarity
