  Resisting the lynching of Haitian liberty!

*/by Malaika Kambon - /*
December 28, 2016

It should be obvious by now that the U.S.-U.N., E.U., OAS and various 
hired paramilitary police have engineered a second fraudulent election 
in as many years in Haiti.

This latest attempt to kill Haiti’s freedom by aborting her dreams of 
democracy via the electoral process was designed to prevent landslide 
victories by Fanmi Lavalas, reminiscent of the presidential victories of 
Jean Bertrand Aristide. The U.S. and U.N. do not want to see this.

But people have turned out in force, as protests continue against the 
blatant sabotage of the Nov. 20, 2016, elections, where Dr. Maryse 
Narcisse and Fanmi Lavalas again sought to reclaim Haiti’s freedom, only 
to be met – again – by a U.S. elite intent upon electoral sabotage.

But the fraudulent elections have ignited the country. Daily protests 
have been held for over a month. For the 35th consecutive day, tens of 
thousands are in the streets, who see in the candidacy of Dr. Narcisse 
the fruition of their dreams: freedom, dignity and sovereignty via a 
political party of the people that knows what it wants to achieve.

The international press is busily trying to shore up the fraudulent 
“win” of PHTK (or bald head party) candidate Jovenel Moise. But even in 
an electoral process that was blatantly manipulated, Moise, “the banana 
man,” controls nothing in Haiti but his mouth, and that not very well.

And the U.S. government, reminiscent of the cryptic simplicity of 
Langston Hughes’ poem, “Christ in Alabama 
<http://www.angelfire.com/freak/lizchan/christ.html>,” taunts and tries 
to snatch Haitian freedom with its entrenched racism.


      It should be obvious by now that the U.S.-U.N., E.U., OAS and
      various hired paramilitary police have engineered a second
      fraudulent election in as many years in Haiti.

But Haiti is rising up, and she is fighting back! With the swiftness of 
a Muhammad Ali strike, Haiti reminds us that we have not ever been 
n****rs, and that we always define our tree of liberty – and our “place” 
– as being free.

Haitian grassroots people are battling the attempted electoral coup 
d’etat, and are now into 35 consecutive days of peaceful yet forceful 
demonstrations against the fraud. This has got the resident oligarchies 
so worried that they have escalated their military and political attacks.

Corrupt judges and the PHTK party of Michel Martelly are trying to force 
international observers and parties contesting the fraudulent Nov. 20 
elections to quit the fraud probe. Attacks by militarized police against 
peaceful demonstrators are growing in number and strength. The entire 
electoral process is broken, worse than in the U.S.

On Dec. 24, 2016, at about 2 p.m. Haitian time (5 p.m. PST) in an 
escalating show of force, militarized police, armed to the teeth, shot 
indiscriminately into a crowd of thousands. Many demonstrators were 
wounded on Martin Luther King Avenue in Port au Prince.


      Haitian grassroots people are battling the attempted electoral
      coup d’etat, and are now into 35 consecutive days of peaceful yet
      forceful demonstrations against the fraud.

Members of Fanmi Lavalas were especially targeted. A sitting member of 
parliament had his car shot up by police. According to witnesses a 
policeman took his automatic weapon and smashed out the back window of 
the car owned by a Fanmi Lavalas candidate for the Senate.

A journalist from Radio Timoun, the people’s radio station, was also 
injured by police gunfire and was taken to the hospital. The people 
announced that demonstrations would continue on Dec. 25, 2016, day 34. 
They will not stop.

Fascism sends its Seasons Greetings full of repression from 
U.N.-occupied Haiti.

A critical question people should be asking themselves is why do a bunch 
of fascist, billionaire whites, their international quislings and the 
internal puppet leadership of Haiti want so badly to maintain an 
apartheid regime and the occupation and ownership of a sovereign Afrikan 
country they describe as “the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere?”

Recall that Haiti was forced to pay the blood sucking World Bank and its 
IMF vampire siblings more than a million dollars per week to satisfy 
debts incurred by the 29-year Papa Doc and Baby Doc Duvalier family 
regimes and other Duvalierist tyrants who succeeded them. The most 
recent example of these is the highway robbery of the treasury by 
Hillary Clinton’s puppet, Michel Martelly.

Round and round and round they go, with the World Bank lying and saying 
it is eradicating poverty, while Haitians eat mud cookies in order to 
repay a debt caused by white theft and to be considered deserving of 
“help” from blood sucking multilateral financial institutions.

Such thieves include the Clinton Foundation, which claimed magnanimity 
in their dealings with Haiti, as billions of dollars of earthquake 
relief money under their control remained unaccounted for.

The people of Haiti are left even more impoverished.

This continual interference in Haiti’s democratic process keeps 
happening because:

1) Haiti overthrew chattel enslavement of Afrikan people over 200 years 
ago by slapping down the combined military might of France, England and 
Spain, thus establishing its independence and turning the myth of white 
supremacy on its head. “We are the first Black independent country in 
the world,” asserts its first democratically elected president, Jean 
Bertrand Aristide.

2) Even though the same “civilized” Euro-American and Canadian regimes 
instigated two coups d’etat against the government of President 
Aristide, the people have never stopped resisting tyranny.

3) Haitian resistance keeps getting stronger, despite U.S.-U.N. 
occupation of the country. In collusion with the U.S. government, in 
2004 the United Nations brought its un-peacekeeping, cholera spreading, 
brutal force of 10,000 MINUSTAH troops into Haiti. Along with the 
reconstituted Haitian army, headed by drug runners wanted by the DEA, 
these combined forces exist to “keep the natives in their place.” This 
is with the full support of the Organization of American States (OAS) 
and the European Union (EU).

4) President Jean Bertrand Aristide fought for and continues to fight 
for Haitian dignity, sovereignty and independence. When he was in 
office, he refused to be a sellout president and kept all of the Haitian 
assets for the Haitian people. In 2003, he demanded that over $22 
billion in money extorted from Haiti by 19th century France be restored. 
Haiti was originally forced to pay this money, starting in 1826, to 
former slave owning French plantation owners.

5) Drs. Jean-Bertrand Aristide and Maryse Narcisse both defy the evil of 
entrenched tyranny. Dr. Maryse Narcisse, the 2016 Fanmi Lavalas 
presidential candidate, is in the streets daily with the people fighting 
for Haiti’s independence.

6) President Aristide fought for fair trade for Haiti, in defiance of 
the Clinton regime policies that collapsed Haiti’s economy.

7) Haiti’s geographic location boasts huge oil, gold and other reserves 
of wealth. She is also strategically located in relationship to Cuba.

8) President Aristide attacked and threatened the hegemony and 
corruption of Haiti’s 1 percent ruling elite by enforcing labor and 
taxation legislation laws.

The U.S. attitude toward Haiti has always been one of keeping Afrikans 
“in their place,” as described by white supremacy.

In the 19th century, the U.S. government didn’t want a free Afrikan 
state dismantling its brutal slave economy. So enslaver U.S. President 
Thomas Jefferson gave Napoleon $40,000 to re-enslave Haiti.

He also put the word out that an Afrikan person was only worth three 
fifths as much as a white person. Napoleon got his butt kicked, 
Jefferson lost a lot of money but acquired the Louisiana Purchase for a 
song, and Haiti was free.


      The U.S. attitude toward Haiti has always been one of keeping
      Afrikans “in their place,” as described by white supremacy.

Fast-forward to 1915 and U.S. President Woodrow Wilson of “Birth of a 
Nation”-reinstitute-the-KKK-filmmaking fame. His secretary of state, 
William Byron Jennings, “disapproved” of “Niggers speaking French!” in 
Haiti. Wilson sent in the Marines to occupy and rob Haiti from 1915-1934.

Fast-forward again to 2004.

Haitians kept deciding that their “place” was to be free, so the IRI, 
Colin Powell – another lying secretary of state, the CIA, and USAID 
kidnapped President Aristide and his family by transporting them as 
“cargo” to the Central Afrikan Republic in a U.S. plane designed for the 
program of “extraordinary rendition.”

Well, that didn’t work either because Congresswoman Maxine Waters, 
Trans-Africa founder Randall Robinson and others snatched them back from 
the brink of captivity and they went into exile, first in Jamaica then 
in South Africa, until the power of the Haitian people brought them back 
home to Haiti.

Hurricanes, earthquakes, odious Euro-U.S. debt designed to kill people 
by the dollar, Duvalier Papa and Baby Doc, the U.S. government and the 
U.S. puppet’s thefts of Haitian resources, DEA drug runners, entrenched 
racism, foreign domination, onerous rapes, pre-dawn U.N. and 
paramilitary attacks, strip mining, cholera, odious rapacious 
secretaries of state from William Byron Jennings to Hillary Rodham 
Clinton, terrorist Tonton Macoutes, starvation, murders, kidnappings and 
disappearances of children, freedom fighters and pro-democracy activists 
Lovinsky Pierre Antoine, Father Gérard-Jean Juste, to name but two; mud 
cookies for food …

In spite of all of these horrible things and more, the Afrikan people of 
Haiti keep fighting to be free. Haitian resistance 
<http://www.counterpunch.org/2004/01/01/forget-haiti-forget-ourselves/> 
to entrenched U.S. interference in her government has not ceased for 
over 200 years. It will not stop. It is about to be 2017, right now.

The Haitian Revolution, from 1791-1804 … it is happening again. The 
people of Haiti will be free.
