Haiti : In a State of Permanent War and Cholera
4 years after the earthquake
Listen to the counter-colonial narrative on Haiti. Learn the truth rarely, if ever, published by the international media. The international media, from the Left and Right political game, mostly maintains the colonial narrative on Haiti to elevate the white establishment’s profit-over-people barbarity and to promote the US hidden war, resource extraction plunders, imported famine, diseases, terrors and Western imperialism in Haiti. (Africa Live interview – listen directly here part 1 and part 2 or at audio player below).
Haiti : In a State of Permanent War and Cholera January 12, 2014 marks the 4 year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti. It is a disaster of unparalleled dimensions in the human history. Haiti – the beacon of African liberation has been in constant assault since they beat the French imperialist in the early 1800’s. In a recent article – Ezili Dantò comments on the history and contemporary moment in Haiti she says: “Haiti has been a reflection of European and US inhumanity towards the poor and African since their “New World” and updated feudal social order began. At this moment in Haiti …It’s still an international crime scene hidden behind false benevolence, false brotherhood, false charity, false aid. Those billed as the “do-gooders” are about initiating or exacerbating catastrophe then capitalizing on catastrophe. That’s the profitable, parasitic formula. (Listen directly at part 1 and part 2 Africa Live interview with Ezili Dantò of HLLN/Free Haiti Movement ).

Ezili Dantò on hidden US occupation, DR apartheid and Haiti resistance
-The three Haiti questions all Haitians and world citizens should have an answer for:
1. QUESTION: What’s so important in Haiti that the US would built its fourth largest embassy in the world there, while funding a UN proxy occupation force for over 10-years now?
Haiti homicide rate is 6.9 per 100,000. But the Dominican Republic has FOUR times more violence than Haiti at 25.0 per 100,000. Haiti has the lowest prison population rate in the Caribbean and the lowest crime rate in the Caribbean. Why is the UN not bringing stability to the more violent DR? Or, in Brazil, Detroit, Washington DC, Jamaica, Mexico, Bahamas – all with greater violence than Haiti?
2. QUESTION: Why is there a UN, Chapter 7 shoot-to-kill “peace enforcement” mission in Haiti for over 11 years? A country not at war, without a peace agreement to enforce and with less violence than most countries in the Western Hemisphere? Why is there a UN Chapter 7 shoot-to kill “peace enforcement” mission in a country not at war and with the lowest crime rate in the Caribbean?
3. QUESTION: Haiti has trillions of dollars in natural resources – gold, oil, natural gas, iridium, copper, et al– why does Haiti need Obama/Bush/Clinton’s meager 41cent an hour sweatshop jobs or US charity (false aid) with so much of its own resources to develop the local economy?
Haiti has the lowest prison population rate in the Caribbean
Haiti has the lowest crime rate and the lowest number of prisoners in the Caribbean. 70.6% of the prisoners in Haiti jails are pre-trial detainees who have never been tried or convicted of a crime. Most of these Haiti’s prisoners are political prisoners put in jail during the 2004 US invasion and occupation of Haiti or after the earthquake to further silence political protest and cries for justice.
“According a study done on December 31, 2010 the Haitian prison population was 5,331, or 55 prisoners per 100,000 inhabitants, the lowest rate in the Caribbean. The Dominican Republic had 21,050 prisoners, or 213 per 100,000. The prize for the Caribbean region goes to the Virgin Islands (U.S.) with 539 per 100,000, while for the United States the figure rises to 743 people per 100,000, a total of 2,292,133 behind bars.” – Haiti – Prisons : Haiti, has the smallest number of prisoners, July 24, 2011
As of 2014, the US-led occupational forces artificially doubled Haiti’s prison population to 10,250 from December 31, 2010. Haiti still has the lowest crime rate in the Caribbean (at 98 per 100,000) with the increase artificially inflated because of the US-led occupation’s brutality against political dissent.
Haiti has the highest number of prisoners in the Caribbean who have NOT been convicted of a crime – the highest pre-trial detainees. This US-UN mass incarceration of Black men in Haiti, this racist warehousing and silencing tyranny is why there is a UN, Chapter 7 shoot-to kill, “peace enforcement” mission in a country not at war and with the lowest crime rate in the Caribbean.
Help create a new paradigm for Haiti: Some HLLN suggestions
CREATE A NEW PARADIGM – http://bit.ly/1fnneVj
“…help build our Campaign Five action plans by sending to HLLN names and list of companies – their addresses, products, directors, how involved with Haiti, their Haitian subcontractors/black overseers, et al , – supporting, maintaining the US occupation behind UN multinational guns, perpetual chaos and Coup d’etat/regime change (rule of the 1 to 3% percenters in garnering Haitian votes and their appointees.) – and generally collaborate with Ezili’s HLLN to expose how, for all the unscrupulous and shady businessmen and governments of the world, Haiti has always been a fiscal paradise because the Neocolonialists’ manufactures fear, racists myths and false stereotypes about Haitian brutality, inherent poverty, lack of natural resources, inherent violence, incompetence (the common neocolonial storyline/media lies), decontextualizes Haiti’s legacy of impunity/corruption and lies about Haiti not having a viable indigenous culture. These myths, stereotypes, racist lies and self-serving fears, control, promote and maintains the world’s negative perceptions of Haiti so that empire, their predatory “charitable” and “benevolent” NGOs and the world’s corporate oligarchs may contain-Haiti-in-poverty the better to rob it blind.” (See, HLLN Campaign Five Action Plan -http://bit.ly/1f2tHIU ; See also – Nov 20, 2010 – What Can YOU Do to Help Haiti?
