DEMAND RELEASE OF ALL THE POLITICAL PRISONERS IN HAITI


Ayisyen, Leve Kampe

URGENT, URGENT, URGENT:
It's obvious to us, given the length of time Prime Minister Yvon Neptune,
So Ann, Jacques Mathelier and thousands of other innocent Haitians have spent
in jail, for no good cause, that justice deferred is justice denied.

It is equally obvious that concerned Haitians MUST do something beyond
appealing to our very oppressors and "their local African quislings" for help
to open the prison doors and free the Fanmi Lavalas leadership as well as the
more than 4000 suspected Lavalas sympathizers jailed, without charge or trial,
for more than to 2 years now. We stress that the keys to Latortue's jails as
well as Haiti's liberation rest squarely in the able hands of the Haitian people.

HLLN therefore appeals again, directly to the HAITIANS in Haiti, actually
given those prison keys to hold, to stop following orders or “doing their
jobs” and, instead, do the righteous, moral and ethical thing: Take positive
action and OPEN THE PRISON GATES. Stop the death of Yvon Neptune and all the
political prisoners in Haiti. Please. All the political prisoners NEED to be
released immediately. It’s time for the law to be brought into application.
Yvon Neptune, So Ann, Jacques Mathelier, all the prisoners lives are in
serious, serious and immediate danger.

HLLN ACTION REQUESTED FROM OUR INTERNATIONAL
NETWORK AND HAITIANS:


We are asking for our Network, especially Haitians and those who speak
Kreyol, to immediately call the newspapers, television stations and radio
stations IN HAITI. (See list below)

The PEOPLE OF HAITI abroad and at home, must let the world know, as loudly as
they expressed their determination to have the Feb. 7, 2006 vote be counted,
that innocent Haitians are dying senseless, pointlessly and to apathetic
reception from our "saviors", for no good reason whatsoever, in the
International's (Bartholomew De La Casas') new "Aristide-free" Haiti.

Ayisyen, nou pa kapab ap ret chita tann "GWO MOUN" lan etazini, oubyen lòt
kote, pou ede nou. Fok Ayisyen leve kampe pou sove lavi tout prizonye politik
yo jodi a menm!!!

Kriminèl ki lage kidnapè Stanley Handal ak asasin Louis Jodel Chamblain yo pa
p pè touye pè Yvon Neptune e Sò Ann.

We must defend our own, ourselves. We are our own liberators. HLLN urges
Haitians to call the Haitian radio stations in Haiti. Let them know that too
many Haitians have died these last two Boca Raton-years in Haiti's prison
without their guilt or innocence ever having been litigated.

At this critical juncture, even as I write this next line, a Haitian child,
mother, father, faces imminent death in the within the International's
supervised prisons in Haiti. We ask the Haitian people to flood the media in
Haiti and in the Diaspora. Take to the streets la sosyete. Agitate, agitate,
agitate and the gates will open and our liberation will come.

The suffering peoples of Haiti deserve our help more, our actions MORE.
Ayisyen, stand up for what's right, please. Remember Boukman's Prayer and
make a phone call, write a letter, make your protest know peacefully and with
determination.

"Speak your righteous message not to these “long rotted ash” but address your
message, my people, to the living and look only to Dessaline’s descendants
worldwide. His legacy is liberty. Speak to liberty lovers. Empower the
world’s lovers of liberty........."

Boukman's Prayer

The God who created the earth, who created the sun that gives us light.
The God who holds up the ocean, who makes the thunder roar. Our God
who has ears to hear. You who are hidden in the clouds, who watch us from
where you are. You see all that the Whites have made us suffer. The White
man's god asks him to commit crimes. But the God within us wants to do good.
Our God, who is so good, so just, orders us to avenge our wrongs. It's our good God
who will direct our arms and bring us victory. It's our good God who will assist us.
We all should throw away the image of the white man's god who is so pitiless.
Listen to the voice for liberty that sings in all our hearts.

Boukman's Prayer at the Bwa Kayiman Vodun ceremony, the call to action that launched the Haitian Revolution, on August 14, 1791.

BOUKMAN'S PRAYER (in Kreyol)

Bon Dje ki fè la tè. Ki fè soley ki klere nou anwo. Bon Dje ki soulve lanmè. Ki fè
gronde loray. Bon Dje nou ki gen zorey pou tande. Ou ki kache nan nyaj. Kap
gade nou kote ou ye la. Ou wè tout sa Blan fè nou sibi. Dje Blan yo mande krim.
Bon Dje ki nan nou an vle byen fè. Bon Dje nou an ki si bon, ki si jis, li ordone
vanjans. Se li kap kondwi branou pou nou ranpòte la viktwa. Se li kap ba nou
asistans. Nou tout fèt pou nou jete pòtre dje Blan yo ki swaf dlo lan zye. Koute
vwa la libète kap chante lan kè nou.


See Boukman's prayer in the Excerpt from Ezili Danto's Bwa Kayiman Play

Liberation Theology: These Vodun words inaugurated the concept of liberation
theology in Haiti. The African warriors, inspired by this Vodun prayer, became
Haitian in the land of the Taino/Arawaks, leaving an indelible mark on Haiti
and the entire world.

Djab la di l ap manje m, se pa vre: Boukman's Prayer

Haitian spiritual: "Ogou oooo, wa dèzanj, djab la di la manje mwen se pa vre.
Se pa vre Timoun yo, se pa vre. Sa se blag Timoun yo, sa se jwet. Gen Bon Dye, geyen lè sen yo. Djab la di l ap manje nou, se pa vre....."


Prayer: Boukman’s Prayer

Boukman's Prayer shows basic Haitian wisdom: we are what we stand for,
what we fight for, what the Ancestors fought for. Boukman’s Prayer not
only outlines the sacred wisdom of Vodun, that we are our actions not words.
But sets the tone for why Haitians choose Africa over Europe in Haiti; why
Haitians chose Africa over Europe's philosophy of God.

Vodun confronted the European colonizers with a philosophy infinitely more
humanistic than theirs: rejecting slavery as immoral and evil, it chose freedom
for all human beings, morality, righteousness, social cohesion and co-existence
as the highest good on the planet. This is reflected in many ways, but no better
than in Boukman's prayer.

Boukman's Prayer
The God who created the earth, who created the sun that gives us light.
The God who holds up the ocean, who makes the thunder roar. Our God
who has ears to hear. You who are hidden in the clouds, who watch us from
where you are. You see all that the White has made us suffer. The White
man's god asks him to commit crimes. But the God within us wants to do good.
Our God, who is so good, so just, orders us to avenge our wrongs. It's our good God
who will direct our arms and bring us victory. It's our good God who will assist us.
We all should throw away the image of the white man's god who is so pitiless.
Listen to the voice for liberty that sings in all our hearts.

-- Boukman's Prayer at the Bwa Kayiman Vodun ceremony, the August 14, 1791 call to action that launched the Haitian Revolution, which started on August 22, 1791.

On Working White Liberals by Maya Angelou

I don't ask the Foreign Legion
Or anyone to win my freedom
Or to fight my battle better than I can,
Though there's one thing that I cry for
I believe enough to die for
That is every man's responsibility to man.
I'm afraid they'll have to prove first
That they'll watch the Black man move first
Then follow him with faith to kingdom come.
This rocky road is not paved for us
So, I'll believe in Liberal's aid for us
When I see a white man load a Black man's gun.

HLLN'S MEDIA Campaign to FREE the political prisoners in Haiti

******************************


Join HLLN'S MEDIA Campaign to expose the corrupt role of the UN, US, Canada,
OAS, France, their false "humanitarian aid", to expose this international community's (the "International Community") culpable role in keeping in office, over the OBJECTIONS of the majority of Haiti's peoples, at home and abroad, for more than TWO years now, and training and paying a puppet Haitian government with no popular mandate and massive human rights abuses and political repression. Stop UN, US, OAS, Canada, France's hypocrisy. Their authorities are the ones holding the political prisoners in Haiti. They are coup d'etat countries with the UN as their proxy militarizing Haiti and fleecing it dry with their IMF/World Bank debts and foreign "free trade" multinationals exploiting Haiti's access to the Windward Passage (Mole St Nicholas); oil (in La Gonave); uranium, iridium and Haiti's goldmines in the Northeast, gas reserves Near Aquin and our State companies, ports and plentiful and cheap labor force. They are the RESPONDIAT SUPERIORS, not the puppet Latortue government or its corrupt and paid-off judges. Write to media urging them not to let the International Community pass the blame to their very employees - the Latortue death regime and its corrupt justice system.

Demand that the mainstream media stop being false witnesses and turning a blind eye to the truth in Haiti: to the WHO holds the keys locking the political prisoners behind bars and destroying justice, decency and democracy in Haiti. It's this INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY with UN soldiers as henchmen, with its USAID, World Bank, IMF and IRI/NDI Economic Hit MEN, wielding its defacto protectorate in Haiti, using the Latortue regime, its foreign-trained Haitian technocrats as its proxy and "black face" in Haiti

Demand that these coup d'etat implementers, FREE the people before giving back the reigns of government illegally held by the international community's employees in Haiti.

Demand that all contracts entered into under the illegal US regime's reign must go to a national referendum placed before the people of Haiti and no backdoor structural adjustment economic plan be foisted on the people of Haiti, either through the outgoing coup d'etat regime, the contracts its illegally signed or through US/Euro false benevolence such as "debt forgiveness."

Update: Yvon Neptune Released, July 27, 2006
(BBC News)

Haiti ex-PM released from prison
| BBC | July 28, 2006

Haitian former Prime Minister Yvon Neptune has been released from prison after serving more than two years without being convicted of any crimes.

Neptune's health deteriorated dramatically in jail. Two UN peacekeeper support the frail Neptune

He had been held on charges relating to the killing of opponents of ex-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide shortly before he was ousted in 2004.

Mr Neptune has always denied the allegations and
held repeated hunger strikes while in jail.

He was taken by ambulance to a UN-run hospital for treatment on his release.
The UN mission in Haiti (Minustah) issued a
statement saying the health of the 59-year-old politician had declined dramatically in prison.

A lawyer for Mr Neptune - who served as prime minister from 2002 to 2004 - said his client had been released for humanitarian reasons.

"After the hospital, he is free to go home. I'm confident that charges will be dropped," Mario Joseph said.

The interim administration installed after Mr Aristide's fall from power, and the recently-elected government, had faced strong international pressure to free Mr Neptune, whose imprisonment became a rallying call for Aristide supporters.

President Rene Preval, who was elected earlier this year, is himself a former ally of Mr Aristide.

Mr Aristide was forced from office in an armed rebellion in February 2004 and is currently living in exile.

Thousands of UN peacekeepers were later deployed to try to quell the unrest which continues to plague the Caribbean nation.

Caricom welcomes release of Haiti's former leader, criticizes 'arbitrary' detentions
The Associated Press

Posted July 30 2006, 11:16 AM EDT

GEORGETOWN, Guyana--The Caribbean Community regional group has welcomed former Haitian prime minister Yvon Neptune's release from jail but criticized the ``arbitrary'' detentions of other prisoners in the troubled country, the group said in a statement.

Neptune was released from a Haitian jail Thursday, more than two years after he was arrested on charges of orchestrating the killing of opponents of ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide at the start of a rebellion that engulfed the country.

But Neptune's release ``should not obscure the fact that a large number of persons supportive of former President Aristide arrested arbitrarily for what appeared to be political reasons under the interim administration have also been denied justice,'' the 15-member group, known as Caricom, said. It did not disclose further details.

Still, the group praised Haiti's new President Rene Preval, who took power in May, for efforts in strengthening the nation's judicial system.

Neptune's release came a day after the regional alliance announced plans to give Haiti US$17 million (euro13 million) as part of an international effort to aid the impoverished nation of some 8 million people.

OAS WELCOMES RELEASE OF YVON NEPTUNE
July 28, 2006

The Assistant Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Ambassador Albert R. Ramdin, today welcomed the release from prison of former Prime Minister of Haiti Yvon Neptune.

"This is a very positive development, as Mr. Neptune's imprisonment has been an issue of concern to the member states for the past two years," Ramdin said. "During every meeting with Haitian authorities, we conveyed our concern about his long pre-trial detention and asked for an immediate resolution to his case."

Ambassador Ramdin, who attended the International Conference for the Economic and Social Development of Haiti, held in Port-au-Prince earlier this week, added that the release of the former Prime Minister "also demonstrates, in my view, an important signal of the current administration to deal effectively with the issue of pre-trial detention."

"During the recent donor conference, the OAS reiterated its support to the Haitian authorities in their efforts to strengthen and modernize the judicial system," Ramdin noted.

Last month, the OAS General Assembly adopted a resolution entitled "Strengthening Democracy and Socioeconomic Development in Haiti," renewing the OAS commitment to support Haiti in such areas as strengthening electoral institutions, developing and maintaining a civil registry, providing training for political parties, helping to strengthen the judiciary and law enforcement agencies, and fostering economic development.
