Latest Update on Haiti Solidarity

Dear comrades,

We wanted to update everyone on the money that has been raised for Batay Ouvriye , as well as what Batay Ouvriye has said they will use it for.  In the next week we will have a report of BO’s activities with more detail.

So far $6,724 has been donated and we have been able to distribute $2,320 to Batay Ouvriye.

If you would like to donate there are three ways to do so:


Mail: Miami Workers Center, 6127 Northwest 7th Avenue, Miami, FL 33127-1111      Please write “for MAS/BO” on the memo line

Bank: City National Bank of New Jersey
900 Broad Street, Newark, NJ 07102
ABA Number: 0212-0163-9 City of NJ Newark
For further credit to:

Account Name: Batay Ouvriye

Here is a direct quote from BO’s appeal letter sent on January 20th, breaking down their expenditures:

According to the inventory we have made up to now, here are our most immediate needs:

Destroyed homes US $    50,000.00

Destroyed belongings                          20,000.00

Hurt, crippled                                     10,000,00

Daily existence                                    30,000.00

Dealing with deaths                            10,000.00

Total                                        US $    120,000.00

We need to add 40% to this calculation because the various prices keep skyrocketing and will continue to do so. So, the real TOTAL of this section is about: $US 170,000.00.

We will continue to send updates periodically.  If you want to contact us directly our email address is or you can visit our blog which will also contain updated information.

In solidarity,

Miami Autonomy and Solidarity
