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.

The State Department's reviewers searched the Central Foreign Policy Records, uncovering ten documents. One document was released in full, six documents were released with excisions, and three documents were withheld in their entirety. The released documents appear below.

Fort of Death

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.

It is not conspiracy -- it's structural economic behavior locked into Western Foreign Policy and therefore the global economy. It's branded aid but really its neo-colonialism.

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."

Stealing Haiti's Riches: a boom for foreign investors and a bust for local communities.

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."

Clinton Apologizes for Trade Policies that Destroyed Haitian Rice Farming

"Given that ‪#‎Haiti‬’s ‪#‎GDP‬ grew 4.3 percent in 2013, money did circulate through the country. Funds from aid organizations like ‪#‎USAID‬ do not help Haitians but US corporations and foreign workers whose job it is to displace Haiti’s middle class. Funds from the International Monetary Fund (‪#‎IMF‬), Interamerican Development Bank (‪#‎IDB‬), ‪#‎WorldBank‬ and the like continue to plunge Haitians deeper into ‪#‎debt‬. As rich investors build hotels for ‪#‎tourism‬, the displaced farmers are shipped to work for foreign exchange throughout ‪#‎LatinAmerica‬, where they are treated with the sort of disdain reserved only for those scorned by their own nation. All this was clear as early as six months after the earthquake...."

How was the U.S. National interest served by the removal of the democratically elected government in Haiti?

Aristide had eliminated the Haitian army, which traditionally protected the interests of the right wing business elites in Haiti. Their interests are U.S. big business interests. Also, Aristide refused to fully implement Washington's neo-liberal economic policies when he returned to Haiti in 1994. Also, Haiti's cheap labor force, whether actually used or not, can be used as a threat - as leverage - against other labor forces.
