Massacre in Haiti's prisons.
If you thought the Latortue regime and the U.S. sponsored massacres and destruction of Constitutional democracy in Haiti couldn't get worst, you would be wrong. Reports coming out of Haiti reveal the Haitian "police" simply assassinated at least 10 of the helpless and unarmed prisoners they are holding as hostages in the National Penitentiary.
Reports also indicates bodies are taken from the jail and dumped in mass graves at night so that the world would not know how many are being murdered. Meanwhile Colin Powell, that modern-day Black slave trader, is asking the colonial tentacles in the form of U.N. Brazilian troops, to kill "arm gangs." "Arm gangs" as we know mean the civilian population that doesn't live in the exclusive areas of La Boule, Kenskoff, et al. Kill the people who are resisting reoccupation and dictatorship. This order is Powell's final legacy to Haiti and the world's peasants and it pretty much sums up the achievements of his long career since his role in the Vietnam My Lai massacres.
How the people of Haiti will ever heal from these atrocities is more than I can imagine. The absolutely grotesque part of this is that the pressure to kill more continues to be given by international "statesmen" the caliber of Colin Powell, and his counterparts in Canada, France. The seemingly "beautiful" people of the world "elites".......
"We are under extreme pressure from the international community to use violence," General Augusto Heleno Ribeiro told a congressional commission in Brazil. "I command a peacekeeping force, not an occupation force ... we are not there to carry out violence, this will not happen for as long as I'm in charge of the force."
He cited the United States, France and Canada among countries pressing for the use of force against armed groups."
The Ottawa Initiative, as far back as March 2002, indicated that the Western powers thought there were too many blacks in Haiti.
(http://www.haiti-progres.com/2003/sm030305/eng03-05.html ) The killing spree and plan to put Haiti under their inhumane "protectorate" is proceeding very nicely soaked in the blood of Haiti's innocent people whose only real crime is their desire and efforts to establish a democratic society.
Were is the world's outrage? Are a black woman's issues still chattel to be slaughtered indiscriminately by proxies for the former slave owning governments? These dark ages policies, this Bush Regime and it's genocidal consequences for Haiti are simply Medieval. There is no pain, no grief, no anguish, no suffering greater than to be Haitian living within this hostile American Mediterranean in 2004. Hold on my people. Kenbe fem. Kenbe red fanm vayan mwen yo. Pa lage. Don't relent.
