Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine was kidnapped in Haiti and has been �disappeared�
since August 12th.� There is an international call for actions pressing for his
safe return.� In Southern California, we are making an urgent call for people
who will join Danny Glover & others to participate in a rolling fast asking for
his safe return to his family and community who love and need him.
Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine is an extraordinary grassroots organizer and a
leading advocate for the poor, including street children, teenage mothers
and victims of torture.
What is a rolling fast? A rolling fast allows people to commit to fast for a number of
hours during a 24 hour period.� You can participate by either fasting for the entire time or
commit to a certain number of hours. The idea is that fasters will overlap in order to
cover the 24 hour period, starting at 10:30 am November 13th.
What if I want to fast but can�t get to the fast site between 10:30am & 1pm? Fill
out the information below and email or fax it � if you choose, your name can be included
in the �bring Lovinsky home� fasters list which will be read at the press event and
speakout outside the Brazilian Consulate.� All fasters on or off site are asked to wear a
red ribbon to indicate you are fasting for Lovinsky�s safe return.� Please let others know
why you�re wearing it.
What if I can�t fast, what can I do? Come out to the Consulate — support the call for
Lovinsky�s release and support the fasters. Wear a red ribbon on fast day and sign the
How do I sign up to take part in the rolling fast? Fill out the information below on
your commitment to fast and email or fax it in.� If you can come to initiate the fast outside
the Consulate at 10:30 please let us know and also how long you will be able to stay.
Why hold the fast outside the Brazilian Consulate? The Brazilian government
heads the UN forces who have had the responsibility for law and order in Haiti since
President Aristide was forced to leave Haiti in 2004. The US and Canada are also key
figures.� Together we are urging them to do all in their power, including making
resources available to ensure Lovinsky�s immediate and safe release.
Whether or not you can participate in the fast please sign the online petition at
http://www.petitiononline.com/august/petition.html.� Also please share the petition
information with as many people as you can.
