These are some of the faces of the innocent
from Site Solely generally labeled and
therefore condemned, along with the
entire population of Bel Air, Martisan,
Site De Dye, Site Militè, et

the political repressions and UN killings
of un-armed civilians in Haiti since
2004, echoing without fail, only the
coup detat human rights groups and organizations
blaming all ills and violence in Haiti,
to this day, on "gangs that allegedly
support Aristide, now in exile in South
Africa, and his Lavalas party."

Nov. 4, 2005 entitled "Jean
Align to Help Poor in Haiti.")
