In Haiti uprisings continue over corruption, fuel price hikes and an inability for many to survive. Batay La, a short documentary film directed by FSU professor Malia Bruker, examines the current anti-imperialist movement in Haiti, led for decades by grassroots workers organization Batay Ouvriye (Workers’ Struggle). Founded in 1994, Batay Ouvriye is known throughout Haiti as a fierce, uncompromised organization dedicated to reconstructing Haiti in the interests of workers, peasants, and the poor. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A. The panelists include Yannick Etienne, an organizer with Batay Ouvriye, along with Batay La director and FSU Assistant Professor Malia Bruker and producer/organizer Sarah Cruz. The event opens and closes with Haitian roots music from Miami-based artist Jan Sebon of Kazaak International.
