That was the first coup d'etat, the Haitian holocaust - organized exclusion of the masses, misery, poverty and the impunity of the economic elite - continues (with Feb. 29, 2004 marking the 33rd coup d'etat). Haiti's peoples continue to resist the return of despots, tyrants and enslavers who wage war on the poor majority and Black, contain-them-in poverty through neocolonialism' debts, "free trade" and foreign "investments." These neocolonial tyrants refuse to allow an equitable division of wealth, excluding the majority in Haiti from sharing in the country's wealth and assets."

Haiti Policy Statement for the Obama Team
Ezili's Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network ("HLLN") January 17, 2009


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: A New US-Haiti Partnership is essential. Below is the Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network (HLLN)'s policy statement. It outlines what Haitian-Americans are working to change in collaboration with the new US Congress and President Obama so to implement a more effective foreign polity with Haiti that centers on promoting sustainable development, self-sufficiency, and a sovereign, prosperous and stable Haiti.

INTRODUCTION
The issue for development of the Southern Hemispheric nations are very similar. As in Africa, Haiti has been ravaged by neocolonialism and its attendant power grabs through the tools of endless debt to the former colonial powers, their plundering of Africa's and Haiti's resources, unfair trade that promotes famine and dependency. The U.S. Congress and new U.S. president should support the institutionalization of the rule of law, support human rights, workers rights, food sovereignty, and stop promoting global corporate interests that promote coup d'etat, instability, financial colonialism and containment-in-poverty. Ideology of all sorts, including "democracy," "neo-liberalism," "free trade", "globalization" and/or all such "privatization" - schemes ought not to be more important than the welfare of humanity, peaceful co-existence, environmental protection and the future survival of humanity and planet earth.

Haitian-Americans proposal for Action/Resolution:
Priorities

1. Stop Deportations
Stop the United States' unequal immigration treatment of Haitian refugees, grant Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and work permits to Haitian nationals in the US with a specification to stop all deportations until Haiti has recovered from the ravages of hurricanes, floods and instability. Haitians in the United States should receive equal treatment and protection under all the immigration laws. Four tropical storms and hurricanes battered Haiti during last year's harvest season, killing almost 1,000 people nationwide, decimating Haiti's agriculture and causing $1 billion in damage to irrigation, bridges and roads. Haiti qualifies for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and should be granted this disaster relief.

But, the U.S. has never granted Haitians TPS, which permits short-term residency to nationals from countries that are enduring political or environmental turbulence. In 2002 the Bush administration renewed TPS for Nicaraguan and Honduran immigrants owing to Hurricane Mitch in 1998. At this point, Haiti is in much worse shape than Central Americans were at the time. The damage in Haiti is worst than three times the damage left after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. In Haiti, mudslides still cover entire towns. Houses are flooded. Schools have collapsed on children and people are starving. It's inhumane to deport Haitian back to Haiti under these devastating conditions, where they will find no home, no employment, no food, no personal safety and security.

Update: TPS was granted after the Jan 12, 2010 earthquake but deportation resumed under Obama in Jan. 2011. Stop deportations and expedite entry of the 55,000 Haitians already approved to join their familes in U.S. If allowed to work in the United States, the 55,000 beneficiaries would send remittances to Haiti supporting an estimated 550,000 to one million persons in Haiti. Such capital flow is by far the largest source of foreign aid to Haiti and more important to Haitians per capita, than to any other nation in the world.


2. End the UN military occupation
In 2007, the U.N. troops in Haiti were paid $601.58 million per year and have been in Haiti for four years. That is $50.13 million per month, $1.64 million per day. Yet, during the recent floods and hurricane season in Haiti, the Haitian President had to call for international help from the international community. Wasn't that help already in Haiti, to the tune of 9,000 U.N. - MINUSTAH- troops already cashing in $1.64 million per day? Why are they there, if incapable of providing emergency help? If they had not one amphibious unit, temporary bridge, caravan of trucks or equipment to reach Haitians in distress, what use are they to the people of Haiti? Are their war tanks, heavy artillery, guns and military presence in Haiti making Haitians more secure, more safe, more free, more prosperous, better nourished, educated and healthier than before they landed four years ago? No.

End the UN military occupation. Haiti needs development/infrastructure assistance, poverty reduction assistance, tractors not tanks and guns. Community policing, not war soldiers. (
Oil in Haiti - Economic Reasons for the UN/US occupation and Haiti's Riches: Interview with Ezili Dantò on Mining in Haiti.)


3. Cancel immediately and without conditions all Haiti debt to international financial institutions, including old Duvalier-dictatorship debts


Haiti is suffering famine, the repercussions of the 2004 US-supported coup d'etat and the ravages of the greatest natural disaster in remembered history, three times greater than the Katrina damage. Yet, instead of using its resources to provide relief for its people, Haiti is forced to pay out in excess of one million dollars, per month, to foreign banks.

4. Began reciprocal trade.

Support fair trade in Haiti, not sweatshops or "free trade" and began
reciprocal trade.

Void grossly unfair free trade deals and ineffective initiatives such as - the Caribbean Basin Initiate Investment Support ("OPIC"), or the Special Export Zones ("SEZ") under the Hope Act which bans trade unions to protect workers' rights, or other such sorts of agreements - pummeling, bullying and beating Haiti into the dust of misery, debt and poverty. And, instead, support Haitian food production and domestic manufacturing, job creation, public works projects, sustainable development and a good working culture that values human rights. After the storm emergency, calibrate food aid so to assist and not further destroy Haiti's food production.

5. Stop failed USAID policies and interventions, provide US support directly to government of Haiti and grassroots Haiti-led, Haiti-capacity building organizations

Stop failed policies, effectively trading with USAID for Haiti and merely enriching USAID cronies, USAID-supported churches, predator NGOs and their corresponding Haiti oligarchs/mercenary families. A great portion of food aid from such entities do not reach the intended beneficiaries in Haiti and, end up for sale in the marketplace. Start fair trading with Haiti and supporting grassroots, indigenous Haiti capacity building organizations. USAID denies Haitian sovereignty and progress by blocking, declining, subverting any direct assistance to empower the Haitian government while engineering so that the majority of Haiti's national budget (provided by the international community as a consequence the 2004 Bush/USAID regime change) is currently managed by its approved non-governmental organizations. For instance, some 800 NGOs control part of the budget, thoroughly undermining the state's ability to deal with the famine and food crisis.

Direct that the U.S. re-orientate its resource allocation to Haiti to trade with the Haitian government, not, in effect, with the U.S. Agency of International Development ("USAID"), foreign NGO's, churches and charities in the name of Haitians. For this US foreign policy effectively forms a shadow government enchaining Haiti that undermines Haiti’s sovereignty, emboldens and empowers NGOs with no public responsibility or accountability to Haitians or Haiti’s long term well-being.

It is in the best interest of the United States to directly support Haitian democracy, good governance, development, self-reliance and self-sufficiency. This cannot be done if the Haitian government has to compete with foreign funded NGOs and charities who are not elected or accountable to the people of Haiti, but are predatory and promoting dependency and their own organizations' interests for self-perpetuation in Haiti.

To effectively support grassroots, indigenous Haiti capacity building organizations, the US Congress must demand greater fiscal accountability, transparency and quantifiable evidence of sustainable development achievements from reform projects designed, supervised and financed through USAID and their subcontractors, corporate consultants and charity workers using federal funds in Haiti. And, in particular these new Haiti foreign assistance guidelines should ensure, that food and other aid actually reach their intended beneficiaries and not end up for sale in the open market or stay in Washington or used in Haiti mostly on administrative salary, fees and expenses for USAID's political benefactors, shipping companies and nonprofits.

Support post storm rebuilding and reconstruction of environmentally degraded areas (Invest in Haitian-led projects to built flood barriers and better drainage as in La Gonave; support food sovereignty, energy and reforestation such as planting of fruit trees for food, capital building and trade and use of indigenous Haiti plant, such as Jatropha, for biofuel - energy. In the process of providing crisis assistance, the U.S. must promote Haitian self-reliance wherever possible instead of the cycle of dependency. For instance, instead of water purification tablets, add also, whenever possible, the more long term and permanent bio-sand filters' apparatus that will last forever and purify toxic water on a continual, not just on a one time basis.)

6. Support the institutionalization of the rule of law
The U.S. Congress and next U.S. president should support the institutionalization of Haitian laws, not USAID/IRI/NED "democracy enhancement" projects that promote coup d'etat, instability and financial colonialism and containment-in-poverty in Haiti through neo-liberalism - "free trade," "globalization" and other such "privatization" - schemes. (See, HLLN on oversight needed on USAID).

Every time the United States supports the destabilization of a duly elected government it visits enormous economic pressures and political turmoil upon Haiti. The turmoil and pressures undermine Haitian justice, participatory democracy, self sufficiency, sovereignty, self-determination and promotes insecurity, debt, dependency, foreign domination, injustice, a rise in fleeing refugees and a structural containment in poverty. This instability has widespread and deep and disturbing repercussions. It keeps Haiti underdeveloped, dependent and contained-in-poverty.

The US may begin to support the Haitian Constitution by assisting with the
return of President Aristide to Haiti and thereby reinforce the rule of law and
interests of the majority of Haitians, not just that of the undemocratic and
morally repugnant Haitian elites. (See, The Slavery the Haiti the Media Won't Expose; the FreeHaitiMovement Demands and Proposed solutions to create a new paradigm.)

7. Encourage Maximum leveraging of Diaspora remittances
The Haitian Diaspora invests $2 billion dollars per year in Haiti. That investment is destroyed, diluted and undermined when it must be used to bury family members killed in political turmoil, kidnapped in the chaos of anarchy, instability that follows coup d'etats, or to move and help rebuilt the family of a relative or friend traumatized by the UN soldiers' rapes, molestation, arbitrary detention and indefinite incarcerations of their children relatives and friends in Haiti, instead of being used to buy books for their children and relatives to go to school, to buy supplies to carry out a viable family business, seeds to plant next year's harvest, or invest remittances in Haiti's tourism, schools, reforestation, agriculture, road construction, flood barriers, communication, energy, sanitation or health needs. Moreover, when the US deports an income earner to storm-ravaged and famine Haiti, this decreases remittances and further impoverish family members who depended on the remittances from family members abroad. Diaspora remittances are the most effective and direct aid to the Haitian poor in Haiti.

CONCLUSION
The Obama candidacy promised change and a return to the rule of law and diplomacy as opposed to US pre-emptive strikes, war, terror and torture to attain perceived US foreign policy interests in the world. Candidate Obama promised human rights, workers rights, environmental protection and reciprocal trade. President Obama may assist with sustainable Haitian development, democracy, self reliance and sovereignty if he supports TPS and equal treatment for Haitian refugees, ending the UN military occupation, calls for justice for the 2004 Bush coup d'etat victims and for the immediate release of the thousands upon thousands of political prisoners in Haiti, assist Haiti with poverty reduction through domestic agricultural investments, not sweatshops and repugnant free trade wages and failed policies of dumping US goods in Haiti, supports community policing, support canceling -without conditions- unfair debt to international financial institutions and promotes the return to Haiti of President Jean Bertrand Aristide. All these actions would support stability, participatory democracy, stop the flow of refugees and illegal immigration and meet the policy interests of the United States.

Some Ezili/HLLN suggestions:

After counting our blessings for life, family, a New Year, our Ancestral legacy, culture and for soup joumou, remember the Haitian revolution achievements Jan 1, 1804 to Jan 1, 2009 by:

1. Remembering "Se pa kado blan te fè nou, se san zanset nou yo ki te koule" (Haitian National Anthem) - "Haiti wasn't gifted to us by the white colonists, it's ours by the blood of our Ancestors"

2. Meditating on and circulating Boukman's Prayer and Diskou Diskou desalin premye janvye (Haiti Declaration of independence).

3. On January 1, sign, if you have not done so already, the Independence Debt petition and send letters demanding France pay Haiti back the Independence Debt. (See sample letter).

4. Consider, if you have not done so already, mailing a letter (see our sample letter) to ask for TPS and equal treatment for Haitian asylum seekers and immigrants.


and,

5 . Show your solidarity with the Haiti struggle for universal freedom and for the people of Haiti by joining, if you have not done so already, the Free Haiti Movement ( email: erzilidanto@yahoo.com)

People-to-People to expose the Haiti stereotypes

"...So, people-to-people, we ask assistance, to expose the neocolonial and psychological warfare that widely and consistently circulates the falsehood that Haiti is more violent and bloody than all other nations in the Western Hemisphere. (Pointing Guns at Starving Haitians: Violent Haiti is a myth and Haiti's Holocaust and Middle Passage Continues.)


So, people-to-people, we ask assistance, to expose the manufactured fear and myths about extraodinary Haitian brutality and violence that aims to control and maintain people's negative perceptions of Haiti and to contain-Haiti-in-poverty the better to rob it blind.

"...So, people-to-people, we ask assistance to stop the genocide going on (the better to steal from and fleece) Haiti.
A genocide, depopulation and terror taking place through:slaughter or indefinite detention/incarceration of neocolonial dissenters; imposed wage/(sweatshop) slavery, privatization, systematic exclusion of the masses from the body politic through sham elections/Western-style democracy, UN proxy soldiers' occupation for US/Canada/France, humanitarian imperialism (more than 10,000 NGOs in Haiti post 2004), financial colonialism, UN, NGO and humanitarian aid workers sexual rape, human trafficking and molestation of Haitian children; imposed famine from fraudulent "free trade" policies that destroys Haitian food sovereignty; imposed coup d'etat and UN/US protectorate that destroys Haitian security, sovereignty and stability; increases violence and organized kidnappings, drug-dealings and arms trafficking; and, perhaps genocide and forced sterilization by this wholesale foreign-imposed (UNICEF/WHO $10-million dollar) vaccination program in UN occupied Haiti." (Excerpted from "Ezili Danto's Note: Genocide by vaccination in Haiti and Is this a way to sterilize Haitian women, as was done to Puerto Rican women?" June 15, 2008.

Three false Haiti stereotypes

"Three false Haiti stereotypes are that Haiti has no resources, is overcrowded and violent. In reality Haiti has formidable advantages - plentiful resources, the most purest in the world of natural resources, enviable strategic location, hard working population; it is centered in Caribbean Basin, has 38% more coastline than the Dominican Republic.
(See, Matraco-Colorado Haiti on Haiti resources and 3 false stereotypes about Haiti -A Power-Point Presentation.)

If there's substantial oil and gas reserves in Haiti, the US/Euro genocide has not yet begun. Ayisyen leve zye nou anwo, kenbe red. Nou fèk komanse goumen.
