What's going on in Haiti: Another View
On July 6, 2005 United Nations "peacekeeping" forces in Haiti (MINUSTAH, the United Nations Stabilization Mission for Haiti) raided the slum of Cite Soleil. What happened during the raid was disputed, until the following documents were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Keith Yearman.

Full version of "Haiti: We Must Kill the Bandits"
Some of the most graphic footage was shot by Jean Ristil Jean Bapstiste (RIP - 12.12.81 - 2.25.12)
The documentary offers an uncompromising perspective on the years 2004-2005, when Haiti went through a coup that ousted democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and a subsequent occupation by foreign troops under a UN Security Council mandate. The documentary offers a searing indictment of UN intervention in Haiti.

Thomas Sankara - Speech on "The Debt"
Two months after this legendary speech, Thomas Sankara, former President of Burkina Faso, was assassinated. Sankara called on African countries to form a powerful front against their continent’s illegitimate and immoral debt and to collectively refuse to pay it.
He understood before others that the debt was a form of modern enslavement for Africa; a major cause of poverty and deep suffering for African populations. Sankara famously stated: "If we do not pay the debt, our lenders will not die. However, if we do pay it, we are going to die."

*The New York Times described Lucas as "an avowed Aristide opponent from the Haitian elite, [who] counseled the opposition to stand firm, and not work with Mr. Aristide, as a way to cripple his government and drive him from power."
The Ottawa Initiative
"In March of 2003, Quebec Journalist Michel Vastel leaked the details of a secret meeting on Haiti hosted by the Canadian government on January 31-February 1st, 2003."
"Documents obtained via Canada’s Access to Information Act reveal that Lapointe was in on key high-level deliberations that may have involved the topic of Haiti’s regime change. Lapointe himself may have censored the portions of these documents that could prove the international community’s plans to overthrow the government of Jean Bertrand Aristide more than one year before the regime change took place."
