Kevin Pina Arrested in Haiti

The Haitian Police have been increasing their campaign of repression before elections that are to be scheduled soon. The most popular party in the country was said to be banned from the race, but now, they are rumered to be running a candidate from jail, the Priest Jean Juste being held illegally without charges.

Today the police stormed the Father Jean Juste's church, and started tearing it apart. Those who were present at the time called reporters, fearing the police would plant some kind of evidence against the jailed priest. Two of the journalists who arrived to film and record the police action were arrested including American Kevin Pina, whose work I have written on before.

Haiti Action has more, as always. It's time to escalate the fight for Haitian freedom.
