I just received this in an e-mail, and it was stated in the e-mail to spread this information around as fast as possible.
This is a website that has 140+ articles relating to the militarization of Haiti by foreign troops. It is continuing to update stories daily as they
come in from Haiti.
This is absolutely terrible, and needs to be made known to everyone.
It is extremely important that everyone takes a look at this page.
There is something very sinister going on in Haiti, and whatever is going on, it could have serious implications for not only Haiti, but the rest of
For those of you who don't have the time to look over the information, I will provide a few key-excerpts from the site. I have added emphasis on
"You can walk down many of the streets of Port au Prince and see absolutely no evidence that the world community has helped Haiti. Twenty
three days after the earthquake jolted Haiti and killed over 200,000 people, as many as a million people have still not received any international
food assistance. ..."
"Protests over the slow arrival of aid have flared in Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince.... After a tense night when shots were fired.... 'If the
police fire on us, we are going to set things ablaze,' shouted one protester, raising a cement block above his head. Another 200 protesters marched
to the US embassy, crying out for food and aid, while about 50 demonstrators gathered outside the police headquarters where the government of
President Rene Preval is temporarily installed. 'Down with Preval' demonstrators shouted..., who has spoken to the people only a few times since the
"Agence Haitienne de Presse reports on comments by Jean Max Bellerive, Haiti’s Prime Minister [about]...the chaos caused by donor countries
funneling money through thousands of NGOs who are responsible to no one.... [and] the tens of thousands of troops that have arrived in Haiti since
the earthquake, bolstering the nearly 9000-strong UN force. ..."
*note: These 3 articles were published in the last 5 days
"One of the most vexing issues in Latin America’s relations with Haiti is the grievous lack of understanding on the part of anti-imperialist
forces about the nature of the repeated imperialist occupations of the former French colony, and of the crushing of the Lavalas movement, including
the ouster of the country's democratically elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide. ..."
At the hospital, we saw 4 US soldiers armed with M16s guarding a cart of patient's food being distributed!
"'The coordinator of humanitarian assistance with the U.S.-run Joint Task Force-Haiti, [is] Canadian Brig. Gen. Nicolas Matern.'(AP) .... The
Army Times ran..., 'Haiti aid mission uses lessons of war,' describing how 'dealing with counterinsurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan...apply
here [in Haiti] to the job of distributing food and water and providing medical help.'..."
"A former US President becomes UN Special Envoy to earthquake-stricken Haiti.... Venezuelan, Nicaraguan, Bolivian, French and Swiss rescue
organizations accuse the US military of refusing landing rights to planes bearing necessary medicines and urgently needed potable water to the
millions of Haitians stricken, injured and homeless. ..."
"I have been here in Haiti for a few days now and what I find most striking, is not only the resilience of the people, but the extent of
volunteerism which is evident in every single camp and in every recovery effort at building and rescue.... Whatyou do not see on TV is the thousands
of milliary officers heavily armed, standing, milling around doing nothing when there is absolutely no need for this kind of millitary presence.
"More than two weeks after a deadly earthquake struck, much of the aid is still not reaching the people who need it. Al Jazeera's Monica
Villamizar spent a day with an aid convoy in the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince, carrying one million food rations.... Though more than 100 people
were involved and armed personnel accompanied the convoy, no food had been distributed by the end of the day."
"There are now 20,000 US troops either in Haiti or offshore. Under an accord signed last week the US controls the airport and seaport and
responsibility for security.... Colonel Gary Anderson, a retired Marine Corps officer and veteran of relief operations in Bangladesh and Somalia, said
Haiti was a chance to project 'soft power'.... 'Wherever possible, use local security forces to secure distribution sites. The last thing you need
to have on CNN is American troops clubbing desperate villagers like baby seals at a relief distribution site.' ..."
"The mass media's portrayal of Haiti is sensationalist.... Advertising dollars flow with images of looters, destruction, and social
disorder.... The other underlying reason is racism.... The idea that Haiti has people organizing themselves into orderly tent cities and that the
major role of the US has been to patrol around with soldiers and guns is not one that fits the image of Haiti or of the US's role there.
"'They treat us like animals, they beat us but we are hungry people,' said Muller Bellegarde, 30.... Many...suggested Haitian churches could
provide more orderly and respectful venues for distributions, with Haitian communities organizing security. 'The...way they're doing it is bad...,'
Thomas Louis, 40... 'This is not aid. This is a way to put people down.'..."
"The theft of Haiti has been swift and crude. On 22 January, the United States secured “formal approval” from the United Nations to take
over all air and sea ports in Haiti, and to “secure” roads. No Haitian signed the agreement, which has no basis in law. ..."
There is obviously something going on here folks, and I know for one, being Canadian, there is no way I am going to be supporting my country's
military occupation of Haiti.
I can see a few probable reasons for this occupation:
-Something related to the supposed "test" of earthquake-generating technology
-Theft a humanitarian aid by other nations
-Militarization for secret project (strategic base for south-american conflict?)
I would love everyone to give their ideas and opinions about what is going here, and why.
