Haiti will be DEMARTELIZED!

Obama's War Against the First Black Republic
The imperial bloodbath is escalating again.Because Haitian people have,mostly with peaceful means, stopped the US-sponsored fake elections of Aug 9, Oct 25th and all its scheduled run-offs. They demand that Martelly leave office when his term is up on Feb. 7th, if not before. Local stakeholders set a transitional means for the people to hold free,fair&inclusive elections without foreign interference. But Empire won't back off.

OAS like the UN in Haiti is Not Impartial But A Tool of Empire
The OAS is US-controlled and part of the Core Group in Haiti. The OAS saddled Haiti with an illegitimate president in 2011 that is the root of today's crisis. The OAS is not neutral, professional or impartial position. It cannot appoint itself over the head of Haitian lawmakers and the G8. Tell Obama, that is not happening.Bye bye Michel Martelly. Take all your legal bandits with you. And we're telling that thug Guy Philippe

Obama, Stop Supporting Martelly and a DEA-Wanted Fugitive In Haiti
Haiti rebellion against US imperialism ousted US puppet president, Michel Martelly. He refuses to leave & US death squad leaders left in Haiti just for such an occasion, like Guy Philippe, and other such US Isil-like assets are threatening to silence the mostly peaceful popular revolt with organized colonial violence.This is a red alert asking the DEA to pick up wanted fugitive Guy Philippe & for Obama to stop support Martelly

Torture to Silence Dissent in Haiti Is Paid for with US Tax Payers Money
ICITAP-trained Haiti police torture activists to force Haitians to accept US-staged fake elections & the US occupation behind a UN front, fake NGO aid and dictatorship. Shocking video footage of police torturing Johnny Charles of Koridò Bastya along with another unidentified man. The victims were arrested at a peaceful demonstration demanding free,fair,inclusive election, not another fake elections like H.Clinton 2010

Haiti Resistance to Stop the 2015 Election Scam
The entire international infrastructure in Haiti is implicated in the massive 2015 electoral Fraud: UN /OAS/US Embassy. The blood of Haiti protestors and police shed during the 2015 Jovenel Moise electoral fraud is on the hands of Michel Martelly, Antonio "Sal" Sola ("King of the Dirty Campaign"), Barack Obama and the big business corporatocracy they work for.USA continues to support, robbers, drug-dealers & kidnapper in Haiti

Who will the U.S. declare President of Haiti this time?
Neocolonialism in Haiti. Ezili Danto analyzes US election scam in Haiti. Who will the U.S. declare President of Haiti this time? While everyone is focused on the sham election, US puppet president Martelly illegally privatized Haiti borders land, air and sea to former Israeli military officers at HLSI. Did Eva Peled's Mitrelli Group donation to Clinton Foundation buy HLSI a $50million contract in Haiti? Watch Ezili interview.

Hillary Clinton, US Mining Thievery and the Female Butchers of Haiti
Hillary and Bill Clinton "opened Haiti" as their private asset to liquidate. They used the State Department, USAID, the UN, the Private Military Security Contractors (PMSC), the US military, and the Fed's passport and visa issuance capabilities. They got kickbacks called "donations," from anyone who wished to buy their influence. Hillary's brother sat on the board of VSC mining that got a rare contract to mine Haiti gold.

10,000 Haitians protest DR mistreatment and lynching
Dominicans publicly beating a Haitian bound to a street pole, cars go by. No one helps. This sort of community barbarity is why Haiti had a revolution to abolish slavery. The savagery against Haitians is led by the United Nations and US-Euro. 10,000 Haitians protest DR mistreatment and lynching. militaries occupying Haiti by force for over 11-years. They embolden these depravities. They embolden these depravities.

Bring Back Our Girls: Rescue the 234 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram gunmen
Unbelievable. 234 teenage girls are kidnapped from boarding school,put up for sale as sex-slaves for $12 each. No words are big enough to express this terrible outrage. If you're in New York, please join the rally to raise awareness, push for the rescue of these 234 schoolgirls in Nigeria. The missing Malaysian plane & racist Donald Sterling gossip drew more media attention than this urgent need to rescue & #BringBackOurGirls

Tourism is not development, Haiti Liberate Yourself!
Tourism, an export economy, sweatshops & privatization of pubic assets to benefit the rich,are not development for Haiti. Local Ile a Vache residents say they want schools better roads, clean water, hospitals. Tourists resorts are fine but not if it means they’ll be homeless, without food sovereignty or possibilities to build wealth.Tourist jobs don't bring wealth. Ile a Vache urgently call for world help to stop repression

George Zimmerman and How White Supremacy Works
Zimmerman had benefits, privileges & choices of race- presumed "Americanism" Trayvon Martin could never have. Zimmerman "passed" as white for the benefits that provides in America's injustice system. The family dropped the identification with being part African-Peruvian. This strategy to uphold white gun- toting self-defense, along with the law allowing white fear to justify killing Black, let Zimmerman kill with impunity

For Trayvon: Obama a day late and a dollar short
Obama's identification with Trayvon is good but falls short of the action circumstances demand.A child committing no crime was shot dead, then his corpse put on trial. The killer released. No Black woman's child is safe. Ezili Danto reMEMBERS Trayvon Martin, beloved native son flowing in the timeless power of the blood of the slaughtered African. Helpful links for undoing racism & four articles by whites to whites highlighted.

US occupiers stealthily privatizing Haiti water: HLLN on Haiti cholera case against the occupiers
The US overthrew Haiti's gov. in 2004 & Washington proclaimed the invasion a "humanitarian" enterprise. This,to cover up that Haiti's earth and waters are filled with gold and oil. The U.S.-controlled World Bank has volunteered to help rewrite the Haitian constitution to allow easier access for foreign extraction corporations.UN poisoned Haiti water now theirs stealthily privatizing it. Haitians must look out for themselves.

UN claims to be above the law, says its legal to kill 8000 Haitians with impunity
With this announcement of absolute immunity, the UN and thus its employer, the US, has made legal history with "the Haiti exception" to international and national established laws. Basically saying it is legal to kill 8,000 and infect over 620,000 Haitians. That Haitians have no recourse to legal redress as a matter of UN and thus US "politics and policy?!"

UN Capitalizing on Cholera in Haiti: playing the arsonists and the firemen
The UN plays the role of both arsonist and firemen in Haiti's cholera epidemic. UN announces a rehashed 10-year plan for clean water that is unfunded.Kristof's white savior bridge characters, filled with conflicts of interests, declare cautious success.They help throttle justice for Haitians, put bandages on plunder, help prolong Black and indigenous world suffering. UN plans for Haiti are not solutions. The UN is the problem.

Haiti: Brandt Busted as Clintons with Hollywood celebrate sweatshop
Obama Sec. of State,Hillary Clinton & Bill Clinton with Hollywood celebrities, celebrate sweatshop opening in Haiti.Sad, exploited but dressed-up Haitians frame the Avatar Crew's feet at bottom.
The privilege few projects its corruption, int'l crimes,environmental assaults on poor. For Clintons & their smiling Hollywood veneers,the utterly inadequate Caracol hoax is the grand height of "new & better reconstruction for Haiti."

Haiti: If I could reach CNN's audience on the 4th of July
Haiti sees capitalism/imperialism in all its nakedness.It's extreme of ugliness,filth&disease.On July 4th,if HLLN could reach CNN audience, we'd explain how slavery continues for most of global south through unfettered capitalism, humanitarian aid & wars to bring democracy & help.US occupation under UN guns brought deregulation/ privatization guru, Bill Clinton, as humanitarian to privatize (open) Haiti for big oil.

Washington Post cholera editorial wants more Haiti monies: What happened to $6 billion?
Before Washington Post ask more money for Haiti relief go to NGOs, why not investigate where $6 billion collected donation dollars went? This push for nationwide inoculations barely a month after start of experimental vaccination is rash, dangerous, expressed without examining information on Shanchol side effects & efficacy.Vaccines detract from real solution,take monies away that should be use for clean water infrastructure.

Haiti: The soul of Africa, not for sale
There is less violence in Haiti than in Washington D.C., Brazil, Mexico, Columbia, Bahamas, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, Honduras. Than in most of the countries in the Western Hemisphere.What's a Chapter 7, peace enforcement UN mission doing in Haiti?The longer the foreigners are in Haiti, the more the hunger, poverty, disease, violence. Trench town "development" is Obama/Clinton tourist hopes for Haiti.

Not voting for Obama: We're not even buying a voting ticket to the show
It's simply unforgivable on so many levels that Barack Obama went further than George W. Bush in denying human rights and social justice to US and world peoples. Ezili's HLLN will not be supporting Obama's reelection. We suggest conscious folks nix the political theater of the Republicans and Democrats, concentrate on local self-reliance, local community building, local people empowerment...

HLLN analysis of Times' cholera article
HLLN analysis of Times' cholera article.If New York Times applied the "follow the money" journalistic adage, the picture effortless falls into place. The Haiti truth, the names and credentials of who benefits from letting cholera ravage Haiti.As much as we see the effort for non-bias reporting, NYT still could not transcend what animates the Left-Right game of neutral imperialism and philanthropic white supremacy.

Haiti: A time bomb which must be defused immediately
The World bank & IMF contain the poor in war, poverty, disease so to save them with Paul Farmer pharmaceuticals, USAID tied-aid, the Clintons' subsidized Arkansas rice & Monsanto GMOs-hybrid seeds. No one wants to hear this when this is the age where Barrack Obama nominates Paul Farmer's partner, Jim Yom Kim, co-founder of what some from Haiti call "Partners in Death", to head the World Bankers fleecing Black & poor worldwide.

Bill Clinton admits UN brought cholera to Haiti. Sidesteps UN accountability, blaming the disease on Haiti. Haiti raped again. It went from zero cholera cases to highest cholera rate in the world as the "charitable" foreign NGOs flourish behind guarded high gates. Poverty pimps living off the blood, gore and suffering. Lol, lol, lol -- they laugh on. Almost every other week, there's a report of a UN rep sodomizing Haiti boys.

Haiti: Jan 1, 2012 Another Independence Day Under Occupation
Jan 1, 2012 marks 208 years since Haiti abolished European enslavement, the Triangular Trade, forced assimilation/ethnic cleansing, direct colonialism & became an independent Black nation. Haitians have been stigmatized, forced to pay with their lives and freedom for that achievement ever since. How should Haitians mark this anniversary? Who should we confer with about our awesome burden, our plight, long struggle?

Bill Clinton has more power in Haiti than Haiti's president: The holocaust continues
Bill Clinton has more power in Haiti than Haiti's president: The holocaust continues...Too many have jobs, egos, power and prestige invested in the profit-over-people system to see that the current saviors of Haiti extend mostly the same narcissistic, cultural blindness and denials as the initial "missionaries/humanitarians" brought to Haiti in 1492.

UN, Uruguay, and the Literal and Systemic Rape of Haiti
The literal and systemic rape of Haiti. Deportation and MINUSTAH withdrawal is NOT enough. Innocent Haitians have a human right to a court hearing, trial & reparations for these gross and depraved UN injustices. UN cannot be above the law. The UN was not conceived & established as a colonizing power or a proxy for enslavers with blanket immunity & impunity for rape, spread of contaminable diseases and crimes against humanity..

UN Responsibility to Haiti for Importing Cholera
UN tear-gassed & shot dead Haitians accusing UN of bringing cholera killing people. Corporate media reported UN's side of story, called Haiti grievers "insurgents" demonstrating against UN to destabilize Haiti for political reasons. When world experts said cholera strain was South Asian, not Haitian, UN investigated itself & admit it brought cholera to vulnerable Haiti, but is not responsible for lives lost. Haitians disagree.

Haiti beating back the elite's rabid rage: Against all odds Aristide returns

Haiti Elections-HLLN to Edmond Mulet on behalf of people of Haiti: Goodbye UN!
The morning after the sham elections, even before the vote counting for these foreign-imposed, non-inclusive elections had begun, AlJazeera reports , the UN went to two of the more recognized presidential candidates and told each, they were in the lead. Both Mirland Manigat and Michel Martelly stopped calling for the annulment of the UN-supported elections after that powerful, if blatantly contemptible foreign intervention.

The November 28 sham elections are neither free nor fair, denies Haitians the right to self-determination, will not provide legitimate leaders respected by the people of Haiti and the insidious international community is only adding to its human right failures, indecencies and injustices in Haiti.

Avatar Haiti: November 18, 2010 Vertieres Rememberances and Interview with Ezili Dantò
Stop the media lies and UN spin that the protests in Haiti are "political." The facts support the Haitian accusations that the cholera is imported and not from Haiti. The CDC has confirmed this. The island people have a long memory of US/Euro abuses at the hands of the "more civilized." Haitians are the Tainos, the Comanches, the Cherokees and Cholera is small pox in a blanket. The accused UN cannot investigate itself.

Haiti's case against the UN for possibly importing cholera epidemic
The UN investigating the UN to see if the UN brought cholera to Haiti is not very assuring to Haitians being helped to death by the various "humanitarian aid" units in Haiti since the democratically elected president was deported back to Africa by Bush the son. There ought to be an independent investigation on behalf of the people of Haiti by epidemiologist entities with no vested interests in the current international crimes.

Is Haiti's deadly cholera outbreak an imported disease?
Cholera has never before been found in Haiti & was most likely imported. Contrary to news reports, no evidence Artibonite River is source of the disease. Even Red Cross routinely delivers contaminated water to the camp refugees. No one knows for sure yet how cholera got to Haiti. But it's certain donation monies are collecting interests for thousands of NGOs instead of providing permanent clean drinking water to save lives.

It this wasn't a hoax, it would be good news. An ADMISSION France is in error, owes Haiti a debt of $21billion as of 2004. Still, a big "Thank You!" goes to Pres.

Haiti's Voiceless Speaks to New York Times: Where's the call for investigation into UN Slaughters in Haiti?
The Times is calling for investigation of the slaughters at Les Cayes prison. That's all well & good. But where was the Times' coverage & call for investigation when the UN was slaughtering unarmed civilians in Haiti from 2004 to the present? For the July 6, 2005 massacre by UN? New York Times is helping better facilitate the old failed standard of giving aid monies directly to UN/USAID/NGOs but never directly to Haiti's gov.
