Letter from Jail, Annette (Sò Ann') Auguste, May 10, 2005

****************************************
Demand Release of All the Other (over 3000) Political Prisoners in Haiti

Open Letter of Prisoner Annette August (Sò Ann) To all Authorities Concerned. Jan. 29, 2005 (in English & French)

Annette Auguste, known as Sò Anne (Sister Anne) to her millions of fans both in Haiti and the U.S., is led to her arraignment May 13 while demonstrators protest nearby demanding her release. Sò Anne, who returned to Haiti in 1994 when President Aristide returned to office after the first coup against him, had lived for over 20 years in New York City. There she organized huge rallies urging Aristide's return, once drawing an audience of 25,000 to a rally in Central Park.

May 10, 2004 - May 10, 2005:

Twelve months since I was arrested by the U.S. Marines in Port-au-Prince. They accused me of having contact with Haitian Muslims and planning to attack them. On May 10, 2004, the U.S. Marines assaulted, brutally, my home in the middle of the night with explosives and large arms; terrorizing all within, especially the small children of my family.

I speak to the world as a prisoner of conscience in Haiti, held in detention for my political beliefs and convictions. I can never forget the trauma these men have caused to the youngest and most vulnerable of our household. I think none of us will ever be able to forget the inhuman treatment we were subjected to in the course of this violent action undertaken in the name of the Bush government for what it calls “BUILDING DEMOCRACY” in my homeland.

From my cell, I am giving hope by the many voices being raised against the injustice the people of Haiti are being forced to suffer today. I am grateful to Congresswoman Maxine Waters and countless others who have stood up in solidarity with the Haitian people in order to stop the bloodletting and help the outside world to know the truth and reality we are faced today.


I send you all my love and gratitude for remaining strong in separating the lies from the truth in Haiti’s current situation. I send you all my blessings as a free Haitian woman fighting for the rights of the impoverished majority in my homeland.

They may imprison my body, but they will never imprison the truth I know in my soul. I will continue to fight for justice and truth in Haiti until I draw my last breath.
