It is up to the Haitians living abroad to support the people of Haiti against Euro/US pressures and against desperate moves

The Leadership leads: Standing on Truth, Living without Fear

"Haiti is hallowed ground, set by our African ancestors as a place Black people could be free within a sea full of Euro/U.S. enslavers. We Haitians stand firm against the re-colonization of Haiti through dictatorship as being instigated and masked by the chaos and instability brought on by the bicentennial coup d'etat, phony elections fever, all, divide and conquer mechanisms and pretexts used to cloak and justify the poverty pimp's (USAID/US/IMF/WB) planned establishment of an ultimate US/UN military protectorship in Haiti. Haiti, some say is a dress reahearsal for the attack on Cuba and Venezuela as failed states." HLLN, October 29, 2005.

 

Haitian history is the greatest asset Haitians own. Thus, no real Haitian analysis may be made about Haiti without looking at our long relationship with the Euro/Americans and our relationship as Blacks to white privilege.

Would it have been "fair and free" to hold elections in Haiti in 1789 in the days of slavery where the candidates able to run are co-opted, Europeanized or light-skinned blacks, and where all the African leaders respected by the people are jailed, killed, are maroons in hiding or forced into exile by the European slavers; where those fighting slavery, like the people of Bel Air and Site Soley today are "pacified," demonized and threatened with imminent death by the powers-that-be if they don't stop their resistance and get fingerprinted and branded like the Black slaves from their Triangular Trade with their OAS "voting" tags; and, where only those Affranchis CHOSEN and vetted by Rochambeau (today represented by the Brazilian generals, the UN, OAS proxies for Bush, Canada, France and the US) are freely allowed to run for office? Of course not. Elections under slavery could not possibly have been said to be "free and fair." Similarly, elections-by-selection, under this U.S.-installed Latortue government, which puppet government has no popular support, maintains itself in power only through daily terror and a UN/US-supported and financed repression, that has killed over 10,000 people, sent countless to prison and to exile, such proposed elections are simply no less bogus and disingenuous as elections would have been in Haiti under slavery.

How are Haitians to hold "fair and free" elections that will empower the people of Haiti and serve their national interests while they are under occupation and ruled by a foreign-imposed puppet government from Miami?

The truth is that these upcoming selections cannot set Haiti free; cannot assure Haitians that every decision made and USAID/IMF/World Bank death-plan and other foreign-sponsored contracts entered into after Feb. 29, 2004, by the imposed Latortue government, on behalf of Haiti as a nation, will be categorically confirmed unconstitutional, and a total violations of Haitian sovereignty, dignity, and international laws and certainly not binding on the peoples of Haiti or their fairly elected officials, whatsoever. How could a President elected while the people are under U.N. guns and "ruling" with said U.N. guns provide Haitians with better treatment as human beings, vested with HUMAN RIGHTS, not anyone’s chattel to be DICTATED to by the OAS, UN, US, France or Canada or their Haitian overseers, if they are the very ones conducting the elections and choosing the candidates in the first place?

Are we to believe the election-by-selection of either Rene Preval, Dumarsais Simeus, Charles Baker or Marc Bazin has even the HOPE of bringing about the end of the corrupt international community's interference in Haitian affairs, its support for barbarism, death squads, the bloody Haitian army, economic death plans or that these elections carry even the HOPE for restoring Haitian dignity, of providing fair and equal opportunities in public life to every Haitian and will move Haiti towards an inclusive, participatory, non-militarized and free Haiti? Right! Not a chance. Nothing healthy, legal and lasting may grow from the swamp of this coup d'etat sewage, or under this climate of desperation, insecurity and horrific human rights abuses by the UN and the US-imposed Miami government. Fact is, Haiti must be set free first, before Haitians may even begin to end the reign of impunity brought on by the bi-centennial coup d'etat or to institute authentic Haitian development and Haitian empowering policies in Haiti.

It is up to Haitians living abroad to support the people of Haiti against Euro/US pressures and against desperate moves. Today the majority of the peoples of Haiti are cornered and hunted as in the times of slavery. On the matter of Fanmi Lavalas' participating in these elections, the respected pro-democracy militant of Site Soley, John Joël Joseph, accurately puts the matter in perspective when he says the people of Site Soley "have decided to vote in these elections to avoid providing a pretext for repression..."

Thus there is NO QUESTION this "voting" in Haiti is being IMPOSED on the majority of Haitians. These elections are based on fear and desperation. The people of Haiti are not exercising free will in this matter. They are operating under military occupation and censorship.

Below is an AHP report on the matter of elections entitled "National grassroots cells of Fanmi Lavalas in Cité Soleil are declare support for René Préval and demand the release of all the political prisoners."

There is no doubt the grassroots democracy movement in Haiti, the majority poor in Haiti, especially the resisting poor in Site Soley and Bel Air are under UN/US guns to vote as the whites settlers want them to, or be indefinitely incarcerated, or get shot.

But we Haitians in the Diaspora are not under such desperate pressures. It falls, therefore, on us to hold the flame of hope and liberty alive. To clarify and clear the Willie Lynch-type deliberately strummed conflicts and confusion until Haitians in Haiti may exercise free will without fearing the UN/PNH's summary executions or arbitrary
imprisonment.

It falls on us-Haitians of greater means to mobilize against these elections and convey to our brothers and sisters in Haiti that they are indeed not alone in their fight against US/Euro might and imperialistic barbarity.

HLLN stands on these truth, no matter how surreal these selections become. We shall always categorically denounce these rigged elections while understanding and supporting the people of Site Soley, Bel Air, Milot and throughout Haiti maneuvers to stay alive in accordance with the above quoted statement of Joël Joseph (See Oct. 24, 2005 AHP report below for full quote.) HLLN stands on the 5-points and shall carry them forth for the grassroots until the repression is lifted.

In sum, on behalf of all who have perished for Haiti's liberty since 1503, HLLN takes this opportunity to strongly denounce all the current presidential candidates in Haiti without distinction, including Preval, Bazin, Simeus. All are collaborators. For, by their willingness to ignore that Father Jean Juste and Yvon Neptune, et al, are falsely imprisoned; by their willingness to run for office in these anti-democratic elections - by their sanctioning of these rigged elections in spite of the coup d'etat repression, massacres, jailings, apartheid and occupation climate- they indeed only formally legitimize and are helping to solidify dictatorship, occupation and the recolonization of Haiti.

National grassroots cells of Fanmi Lavalas in Cité Soleil are declare support for René Préval and demand the release of all the political prisoners


Port-au-Prince, October 24, 2005 (AHP)- The members of national grassroots cells of Fanmi Lavalas declared support Monday for electing former Haitian President René Garcia Préval to a new mandate in the coming elections.

During a press conference, a leader of the base cells, René Monplaisir, announced that a great mobilization will take place on October 27 as a sign of support for René Préval.

Another official, John Joël Joseph, for his part said they have decided to vote in these elections to avoid providing a pretext for repression, even though, in his view, Fanmi Lavalas is not participating in the elections.

He took this opportunity to call for the release of all the political prisoners and the return to Haiti of all those who have been exiled.

Peasants from different districts in the North Department gathered in Milot pledge their support for the candidacy of former President René Préval
(AHP)

Milot October 31, 2005- (AHP)- Peasants who came from different administrative communes of the North geographic department committed themselves Sunday in Milot to voting for former Haitian President René Garcia Préval in the elections scheduled for the end of the year.

They made this commitment at a North Department congress named "Congress of Milot" organized in the context of the upcoming elections.

Conference delegates criticized the alliance agreed between some Fanmi Lavalas leaders and Marc Bazin of the MIDH party (Movement for the Establishment of Democracy in Haiti). They also denounced the alliance signed between peasant leader Chavannes Jean Baptiste and industrialist Charles Henri Baker.

According to the former mayor of Milot, Moïse Jean Charles, the people of Haiti are not prepared to digest these alliances that go against their interests.

Fanmi Lavalas cadres supported by members from the party's base, who registered the party as a participant in the forthcoming elections, chose Marc Bazin as their candidate representing a coalition called Union for Haiti. However several other sectors of the party including senior cadres who have been in exile since the sudden departure of President Aristide, have rejected this alliance, saying that President Aristide has not expressed his support for any candidate.

At the closing session of the Milot Congress, a new peasant organization came to light. It is known as MPNKM, or Movement of National Peasants of the Congress of Milot.

The spokesperson for this new organization, Moïse Jean Charles, appealed on this occasion for unity behind the candidacy of René Préval.

According to him, the population has already made a decision to support Mr. Préval.
Moïse Jean-Charles also denounced what he called maneuvers by certain local and international sectors aimed at placing a foreign citizen to run the country.

He warned that he might urge candidates who support peasants to withdraw from the electoral race if the foreigners are not excluded from the process.

The former Mayor of Milot announced at the same time that the mobilization aimed at the release of the political prisoners and the return to the country of all the exiles will continue.

5-Points From the Democratic Base In Haiti speaking for self (since Haiti's Democratic Party Leaders are in Jail or in Exile)

5-points from the grassroots Lavalas Movement and party-base in Haiti in order for the majority and forces of peoples in Haiti they represent
to go to elections:


1. Liberation of all political prisoners including Father Gerald Jean-Juste who the Fanmi Lavalas grassroots-base in Haiti has chosen as their candidate for the presidency of Haiti.

2. The Latortue government must go.

3. The repression and killings in the popular neighborhoods must stop

4. Disarmament. Arms must be gone. There cannot be elections with all these arms on the streets (even those in the hands of the
"no-nationality" Haitian bourgeoisie, their "anti-poor" thug enforcers and former
military).

5. President Aristide and all those in exile must be allowed to return to Haiti

The Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network's Appeal for international support on the People of Haiti's right to
self-respect, self-determination and self-defense

We Haitian democracy activists have taken on ourselves a great task. The Haitian people have been robbed again, not only of the wealth of our country, and not only of the lives and livelihoods of our countrymen, but of our sense of self-determination.

The very essence of being Haitian is the connection to those freedom fighters of the revolution who would not lie down and obey the men who claimed to be their masters. Today, Haiti is being ruled by a regime that was selected by foreign powers. The legitimate officials are in exile, in hiding, or in captivity.

All around, voices are telling us to suffer this indignity, to give up on our quest for self-governance, that somehow we are unfit to choose our own leaders or our own style of governance.

We utterly reject this pattern of thought. It is the mental slavery from which Bob Marley calls us to emancipate ourselves. For the average Haitian "This Song of Freedom" is truly all we have ever had. And now they want to take that too.

It is with this sense of insistence and urgency that we set forth our grievances and define our terms for reconciliation in the Haitian Lawyers Leadership Haiti Resolution. We ask that all Haitian democracy activists circulate this resolution, and address the issues and demands of the resolution to their own governments, and to the United Nations, which has the responsibility for protecting the right of self-determination. But most of all, we ask all solidarity groups who wish to sincerely help Haitians, to not just send their appeals to the UN, the US-installed government, the coup d'etat governments or Haiti Democracy Project's Timothy M. Carney. You're better off telling your next door neighbor about what they are not seeing on the conventional media about Haiti then simply telling the UN, US, Candadian officials (et al) what they already know and wish to hide behind the headlines. Kindly send appeals and background info to the MEDIA. Flood the U.S. local, national and international media with your concerns about the abuse, occupation, genocide and re-enslavement of the people of Haiti.
http://www.margueritelaurent.com/contactinformation/local-national-media.html

Remember letters of appeals to the media is a start, but political action, economic boycott and systemic and consistent public censure/exposure are essentially what pro-democracy Haitians are asking from solidarity groups. Please also do this by supporting our 7 Men Anpil Chay Pa Lou campaigns and boycotts.

The Haitian Lawyers Leadership Haiti Resolution:

1. Demand the return of constitutional rule to Haiti by restoring all
elected officials of all parties to their offices throughout the
country until the end of their mandates and another election is held, as
mandated by Haiti's Constitution;

2. Condemn the killings, illegal imprisonment and confiscation of the
property of supporters of Haiti's constitutional government and insist
that Haiti's illegitimate "interim government" immediately cease its
persecution and put a stop to persecution by the thugs and murderers from sectors in their police force, from the paramilitaries, gangs and former soldiers;

3. Insist on the immediate release of all political prisoners in
Haitian jails, including Prime Minister Yvon Neptune, Interior Minister Privert
and other constitutional government officials and folksinger-activist Sò
Anne;

4. Insist on the disarmament of the thugs, death squad leaders and
convicted human rights violators and their prosecution for all crimes committed during the attack on Haiti's elected government and support the rebuilding of Haiti's police force, ensuring that it excludes anyone who helped to overthrow the democratically elected government or who participated in other human rights violations;

5. Stop the indefinite detention and automatic repatriation of Haitian
refugees and immediately grant Temporary Protected Status to all
Haitian refugees presently in the United States until democracy is restored to Haiti; and

6. Support the calls by the OAS, CARICOM and the African Union for an
investigation into the circumstances of President Aristide's removal.
Support the enactment of Congresswoman Barbara Lee's T.R.U.T.H Act
which calls for U.S. Congressional investigation of the forcible removal of
the democratically elected President and government of Haiti.
