Attend this Evanston, IL talk on the fight for UN accountability for cholera in Haiti.
Since 2010, Haiti has been the site of the modern world’s most serious outbreak of cholera – a deadly waterborne disease never before present in the country. The cholera epidemic has killed thousands and sickened hundreds of thousands of Haitians. Overwhelming scientific evidence points to the origin of this epidemic: grossly unsanitary conditions in the camps of the United Nations’ peace keeping mission in Haiti. This talk discusses attempts by lawyers and activist to hold the United Nations accountable.
