Despite the Dominican Republic announcing a systematic purge of Dominicans of Haitian descent--one form of ethnic cleansing--there has been little media coverage and virtually no response from companies with stakes there. What little media coverage that has taken place has been of a wait-and-see-variety. Today, I challenge you to read up on this and take action. Namely, to tell Carnival Cruise Lines that the Dominican Republic can hardly be considered a vacation paradise as it continues to commit human rights violations.

Tell Carnival Cruises to say no to ethnic cleansing.
