we keep working to fight hate speech COVID

Hello everyone, thanks to the work of our entire team and the help of each of the donors, we continue working to combat hate speech in Chile. Especially in the context of COVID. This has forced us to rethink our workshops and work with our volunteers. What has allowed us to continue fighting hate speech. We have held talks for more than 200 secondary school students in Chile.

We have created an alliance with the NGO "Otra Parte" to make the xenophobia barometer against Venezuelan migrants in Colombia.

We will keep you posted on developments soon so that we can keep moving forward and commenting on hate speech.

Sincerely

Report-Covid 19 (2)

Virtual Recital of Haitian poetry in quarantine
Virtual Recital of Haitian poetry in quarantine

Victims of Covid-19 in Chile are on the rise, as of today, this country has around 431,704 cases and 12,641 deaths (Ministry of Health, 2020), the main commercial cities, where many immigrants reside, particularly immigrants Haitians, are in mandatory quarantine. As a consequence, the unemployment rate in Chile during the February-April 2020 quarter was 9.0 (INE, 2020).

Those most affected are immigrants, either because they cannot access the social assistance offered by the government, or because of lack of documents or lack of information. Any way we find many way to help people to staw home and know about haitian culture and help people to find correct information. Thes most relevants activities are the following:

 

Virtual Recital of Haitian poetry in quarantine in Chili 

On August 15, 2020, T-zen organized the first Virtual Recital of Haitian poetry in quarantine in Chili. 9 Haitian poets residing in Chile and 3 guests (from France and Venezuela) were invited. More than 50 viewers via Zoom and it was broadcast live on Facebook from T-Zen. After the event, more than 15 videos of each poet he read were edited for posting on T-Zen's YouTube and Facebook every week.:https://youtu.be/3XTfMywjAg4

 

Solidarity with Haitian migrants

In September 2020 Thank to The support of the organization Globalshapers hub Santiago and Reality Israel; T-Zen has participated in the “Solidarity with Haitian migrants” activity in the city of Santiago de Chile, in the Quilicura commune, where 40 boxes of food were delivered to a volunteering Group named « Youn ede Lòt » in order to them help Haitian migrant families in a situation of economic vulnerability due to the consequences of COVID- 19. The Haitian migrant community is the third largest foreign community in Chile. However, it is also one of the most excluded social groups due to differences in language and skin color. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, this was deepened by expressions of racism and xenophobia in the press. The food boxes were prepared by Locomido, a Venezuelan company. They were designed considering the traditional diet of Haitian migrants and with indications of recipes to cook the food.
