Bwa Kayiman, 2011
Ezili's HLLN stands in solidarity with the victims of the UN cholera outbreak


"Boukman o nan Bwa Kayiman
Nou lonmen non w
Nou pa denounen w, nan Bwa Kayiman
Papa Boukman o, nou wè ase
Papa Boukman o, nou rive nan tobout o
Peyi nou divize, lafanmi doz-a-do.
Nou pate fè Bwa Kayiman
Pou n sèvi etranje."
(See also, Boukman's Prayer at Bwa Kayiman)


On the 220th anniversary of Bwa Kayiman, the Vodun gathering that began the historical Haiti revolution that abolished forced assimilation, slavery, direct colonialism and the European Triangular trade and, in the name of the 13 most famous Haitian women of the Haiti revolution, HLLN re-commits to defend Haiti’s human right to life, liberty, dignity, safety; to defend - our right to not be poisoned and to not endure, without legal remedy, the foreign fecal poisoning of Haiti's environment, agriculture and water systems.

On this August 14, 2011 marking the 220th anniversary of the beginning of the Haiti revolution against powerful and unmerciful tyrants, despots and oppressors, in the name of Jean Baptise Mixamar, Boukman, Cecile Fatima, Victoria "Toya" Monta, Defile, Sanit Bèlè and all of the indigenous Haiti army, Ezili's HLLN stands in solidarity with the victims of the UN cholera outbreak. And, in remembrance of Jean Baptise Mixamar's eternal blood sacrifice at Bwa Kayiman, Ezili's HLLN herein declares on this memorable day that with resources as limited and as boundless as that of our revered Ancestors, we shall do what is possible to defend the cholera victims’ human right to a hearing, justice and reparation by any means necessary including defense before appropriate courts of law.

Thank you for supporting cholera and earthquake relief with human rights, healing and dignity

Thank you to the honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam for their generous gift to Ezili/HLLN organizations of clean water technology for the people of Haiti. (See, video of August 12 Haiti press conference.)

Thank you to all in the Ezili Network who worked so very hard to make this launching a tremendously successful event.

Thank you to Reverend Grayland Hagler of the Plymouth Congretional Church in Washington, DC and The United Church of Christ for supporting HLLN's Zili Dlo - Clean water for Haiti project.


Denouncing the UN and the international community


Ezili's HLLN is bringing clean water technology to Haiti while:

1. Denouncing the UN and the international community for their gross criminal negligence in bringing the most virulent cholera strain to Haiti and then unilaterally and with blatant racism absolving themselves of responsibility for the spread by claiming “Haiti is dirty.”

2. Ezili's HLLN denounces the UN, its Haiti envoys and the international community that supports it for refusing to take responsibility for the deaths, suffering and ugly indignities these most powerful and "educated" forces have imposed upon an already traumatized and defenseless Haiti populace;

3. HLLN denounces those in the Haitian government, international and local press and their civil societies and constituents who have not spoken out against the UN imported cholera; and

4. HLLN denounces the absolute refusal of the UN neither to quarantine the perpetrators nor to mitigate the on-going damage and environmental poisoning of Haiti.


Ezili HLLN shall defend the victims of the UN cholera outbreak, UN and NGO occupation jiskobou.

Service Area: Ezili's HLLN stands in solidarity with the UN cholera victims

The current Zili Dlo water system is to service the greater Port au Prince area. We have on-location distribution and are working to put in place a fleet of Zili Dlo trucks with water cisterns to fan out throughout the under-served neighborhoods of Port au Prince, especially at the tent compounds and to our various HLLN Haiti affiliates.

This NOI/HLLN life-saving partnership has gifted the first purification unit to two, well-established and connected-to-the-people Haiti grassroots women organizations for them to manage and distribute the water to their local constituents. We also provided them with a week of training and technical support, which the honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was also generous enough to financially sponsor, getting his own engineer, Brother Byron Muhammad, to travel to Haiti to teach the selected HLLN Haiti organizations how to operate and take care of the solar-powered purification system that makes 30,000 gallons of clean water per day.

Our next unit will go to the North to service the Mirebalais, St. Marc, Verette, Hinche, Artibonite area that's the epicenter of the cholera outbreak.

Part of the task of the HLLN/NOI partnership this last week in Haiti was to visit Mirebalais and the Artibonite area to gain first hand experience and encounter the suffering cholera victims the next unit will service... We'd like all Haitians to see Zili Dlo as theirs and to help us place schedules for portable, clean, safe water deliveries all throughout Haiti. The more folks help us sponsor Zili Dlo water trucks, the further and more people we will service together. Zili Dlo se lasante e lavi - Zili Dlo is life and health for Haiti.

Ezili's HLLN is committed to productively intervening to save Haitian lives dying and suffering unendurably from drinking foreign contaminated Haiti water, while calling the UN to legally and morally account for the indignity of our people drinking and suffering so horribly from swallowing their diseased feces.

Ezili's HLLN denounces massacres of Haiti Vodouist, holds UN responsible for inaction


Ezili's HLLN denounces the murder and massacres, to date, of at least 75 Vodouist in Haiti accused of being responsible for the cholera outbreaks; denounces Bill Clinton as UN envoy, Obama administration, the UN, the local and international press and the Haitian government and police for standing by as these killings took place, mostly remaining silent for practically one-year, allowing the
UN-MINUSTAH mission to pour their raw feces onto Haiti with immunity and impunity.
(Note: According to HLLN sources, 50 Vodouist were massacred by opportunists and religious fanatics in Grand Anse alone, 14 in the Plateau Central, 3 and more in the North, at least 2 in Nippes and more than 3 Vodouist were murdered in the South.)

The UN-MINUSTAH soldiers sit all day long, mostly surfing the internet behind gated military bases when not molesting Haiti women, men, children; tear-gassing grieving cholera or earthquake survivors or protecting the commercial interests of the morally repugnant and rapacious Haiti oligarchy along with that of over 75,000 foreigners and 16,000 NGO/NPO organizations living the antebellum ol' Dixie-era lifestyle in Haiti .

Most Haitians already knew it. But, now a whole-genome study gives irrefutable evidence that the UN brought cholera to Haiti.

"The study should have a practical upshot, Piarroux says. Now that there's evidence beyond a reasonable doubt, the United Nations should accept responsibility and make amends to Haiti, he says—for instance, by offering financial compensation or by supporting an all-out effort to make the country cholera-free again. "More than 6000 people are dead," Piarroux says. "It's our fault, as the people of the world."

As a voice of the voiceless, Ezili's HLLN again condemns the UN, the international and local press, their civil societies and the Haitian government and press for remaining on the sidelines and allowing the tolerable atmosphere that blames Haiti for the cholera outbreak and gave reason to some wayward Christians in Haiti whose fanaticism are generally ignored by the international authorities, to massacre Vodouists. We condemn these authorities for all the months - almost one-year after the outbreak even in the face of irrefutable scientific evidence – where they have not raised the alarm but kept SILENT. These authorities have failed to immediately demand and insist that the UN-MINUSTAH mission mitigate its damages, do environmental clean-up, quarantine its contaminated soldiers, provide guarantees to Haiti its soldiers are not contaminated with some other disease, that they are no longer dumping their raw feces into Haiti's water system, and provide filters to clean Haiti's drinking water which action could have prevented a large number of the over 6000 sufferings and deaths and over 370,000 Haitians who have been hospitalized. (See HLLN photo essay on cholera in Mirebalais, August 2011.)

As a voice of the voiceless, Ezili's HLLN stands in solidarity with victims of UN cholera and with the Vodouist whose families and friends were massacred and are being murdered by the opportunistic and fanatical Christians in Haiti who accuse Vodouist of being responsible for the cholera outbreaks.
It is depraved and criminal that the international authorities, because of the historical disdain for Haiti’s indigenous culture and their mainly Christian faith have failed to strongly denounce the religious fanatics' murder and massacre of Vodouist in Haiti, who are the scapegoats for all ills that befalls Haiti, ala Pat Roberson's insane, racist, illogical thinking.


At Ezili’s HLLN we are proud of Haiti’s culture, Vodun psychology, spirituality, herbal medicine, bad-vibe makeovers, Lakou, Viv and Konbit inter-connected way of life. From our beginning, we've taught its
grounded-in-reality light and wholesome beauty and carry it forth as a matter of course. But are most glad at the happy coincidence that HLLN's Zili Dlo - the modest purified water project started after the 2004 hurricanes in Gonaives, is today, by its historic reference, name and Ancestral symbols, also the literal antidote to toxic-foreign-feces-poisoning; empowering, in a myriad of ways, the ravaged and downtrodden 80% Vodouist in Haiti living and suffering with UN–cholera while being blamed, by opportunists and Christian religious fanatics, for causing it.

Manbo Euvonie Georges Auguste looks at a Fanm Vodou Pou Ayiti artwork to commemorate the memorable occasion of launching Zili Dlo, that is, purifying the foreign-infected Haiti water while lifting up Haiti's indigenous culture, pride and power. Zili Dlo symbolizes the irreducible love essence. The vèvè identifies the mothering, beauty, nurturing and indomitable warrior spirit of African-Ayisyen women. Zili Dlo is libation to the Ancestors; health and life to the living. Nou fè yon sèl kò. Ginen poze despite the graven images -
