Don’t be distracted by Aristide in Haiti:
Demand Justice not Gestures
by Ezili Dantò of HLLN, March 17, 2011
Reportedly, President Aristide is on a plane right now, as of this Thursday, March 17th noon, supposedly “going to Haiti”. He is expected to arrive at night or should I say, “into darkness”… into the valley of death where the shadows of Youri Latortue, Louis Jodel Chamblain, Guy Philippe, Lame Timanchet are all set, on behalf of Manigat, to make war with Martelly’s Ninjas (Haiti Billionaires') camp on Sunday, March 20, 2011 at the Hillary/Bill/OAS/Obama run-offs.
Keep vigilant for the carnival of violence will be blamed on Lavalas and Aristide. No doubt about this, the chest board is set. The perpetrators will be seen as the peacemakers along with those in white trucks (horse?) justifying over $860million per year for their presence in Haiti.
A larger game, in which we anti-Duvalierists Haitians are pawns, is playing out. Supposedly, Obama and Ban Ki Moon called Zuma to ask the South African president to delay the flight. Zuma said he would not. What’s the outcome, an assassination where Obama points to his efforts at stopping the return before the fraudulent US selections in Haiti take place? Who knows, but this effort is the work of unseen hands? Perhaps the universal good will turn their plans around??? As of now at Ezili’s HLLN we see the liberators, Haiti’s peoples, as mere CONSUMERS of this orchestrated “return.” Not a good empowering position at all. Stay tune.
We continue to demand the return of a live President Aristide, the annulment of these US/Hillary Clinton fraudulently imposed selections, oversight on the pillage of Haiti by USAID subcontractors, the Haiti Billionaires (Oligarchy) and their global corporatocracy and an end to the UN occupation. The assets of Haiti – its oil, natural gas, iridium, copper, gold, uranium, underwater treasures and lands MUST be used to elevate the standards of living of Haitians, not foreigners and their Haiti Billionaires (Oligarchy) and NGOs. Haiti must invest its assets and labor in domestic manufacturing, production, distribution and jobs, in justice, not charity. In the rule of law, not apartheid, or Obama’s fraudulent Nov 28 elections where only 23% voted and of that many thousands upon thousands were dead earthquake victims. (Martelly and Manigat, the two candidates for Hillary/OAS's Sunday run-offs received just 10% of the first-round fraudulent votes between them.)
This election without an electorate is not DEMOCRACY but a return to disenfranchisement of the people of Haiti. Neither FRAPH death squad ally and coup d’etat supporter/Duvalierist/porn king Michel Martelly, nor Duvalierist Mirlande Manigat are progress but repugnant buffoonery imposed by an opportunistic foreign crew with their Patrick Gaspard/Wyclef Jean/NOAH clueless Diaspora opportunists looking for approval, position and jobs in an inhumane, uncivil, apartheid and non-inclusive Bill Clinton/UN status quo in Haiti. None have taken positions on the fleecing of Haiti by USAID subcontracting poverty-pimping NGOs, their betrayal of US donor trust or on the massive degradation mining for iridium, gold, copper, uranium, limestone and drilling in Haiti waters and mountains by foreign companies since Bush regime change 2004 have caused to Haiti’s fragile environment or taken any position on the UN-imported cholera that’s infected over 200,000 already wounded Haitians.
If Aristide had been in Haiti, he would have taken a position on these issues. This is why he was exiled. This return, at a time when the Duvalierists have the “success” they’ve been wanting and are about to put an “election” façade on it, is the work of the puppet-masters. At HLLN we remain vigilant and anticipate the continued denial of the people’s voice, if not symbol. But nou pap bay legen. For every fallen warrior like Lovinsky Pierre Antoine, a thousand will rise until Haiti has given life to the legacy.
