LEGENDARY GUYANAN LEADER EUSI
KWAYANA JOINS FAST
FOR THE SAFE RETURN OF HAITIAN
HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST LOVINSKY
EUSI KWAYANA, legendary leader in the struggle for independence and democracy in Guyana, joined the 24-
hour fast initiated by Global Women’s Strike to demand safe return of Haiti human rights activist LOVINSKY
Here is his statement:
�“Something very urgent in the disappearance of Lovinksky Pierre-Antoine impels me to join this fast for
the appointed 24 hours and to affix my signature to the hundreds and hundreds who have signed and
will sign this most momentous petition. For what purpose or with what objective can forces with the
power to do so hold young Lovionksy in restraint dare to lay their hands on this exemplary young
citizen of this remarkable country whose contribution to the right to freedom is second to
none?Lovinksky’s unexplained detention is an extraordinary violation of his own human rights and those
of his family. Beyond that, it seems made to order as a provocation to all those who love and respect
him and his role in society and its renewal. Finally, let it be known that Lovinsky’s enforced absence
does not come from friends of Haiti who welcome its uphill efforts, for the first time, to democratic self
government and self management. HANDS OFF CITIZEN LOVINKSY PIERRE-ANTOINE. HANDS OFF
HAITI. RELEASE HIM NOW BEFORE THE LINE IS CROSSED! RELEASE HIM NOW AND IN GOOD
HEALTH!”� —EUSI KWAYANA
The fast, [began] on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2007 in Los Angeles, gathered at 10:30 am outside the Brazilian
Consulate at 8484 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills
Who is Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine?
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?
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 petition.
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
