Resisting the lynching of Haitian liberty!

 By: Malaika H Kambon – San Francisco Bayview Newspaper
It should be obvious by
now that the U.S./UN, EU, OAS, and various hired paramilitary police have
engineered a second fraudulent election in as many years in Haiti.
This latest attempt to
kill Haiti’s freedom by aborting her dreams of democracy via the electoral
process was designed to prevent landslide victories by Fanmi Lavalas,
reminiscent of the presidential victories of Jean Bertrand Aristide. The U.S.
and UN do not want to see this.
But people have turned
out in force, as protests continue against the blatant sabotage of the November
20, 2016 elections, where Dr. Maryse Narcisse and Fanmi Lavalas again sought to
reclaim Haiti’s freedom, only to be met – again – by a U.S. elite intent upon
electoral sabotage.
But the fraudulent
elections have ignited the country. Daily protests have been held for over a
month. For the 35th consecutive day, tens of thousands are in the
streets, who see in the candidacy of Dr. Narcisse the fruition of their dreams:
freedom, dignity and sovereignty via a political party of the people that knows
what it wants to achieve.
The international press
is busily trying to shore up the fraudulent “win” of PHTK (or bald
head party) candidate Jovenel Moise. But even in an electoral process that was
blatantly manipulated, Moise, “the banana man,” controls nothing in Haiti but
his mouth, and that not very well.

And the U.S. government,
reminiscent of the cryptic simplicity of Langston Hughes’ poem, “Christ in Alabama,” taunts and tries to
snatch Haitian freedom with its entrenched racism.
But Haiti is rising up,
and she is fighting back! With the swiftness of a Muhammad Ali strike, Haiti
reminds us that we have not ever been n****rs, and that we always define our
tree of liberty, and our “place” as being free.
Haitian grassroots people
are battling the attempted electoral coup d’etat, and are now into thirty-five
consecutive days of peaceful yet forceful demonstrations against the fraud.
This has got the resident oligarchies so worried that they have escalated their
military and political attacks. 
Corrupt judges and the
PHTK party of Michel Martelly are trying to force international observers and
parties contesting the fraudulent November 20 elections to quit the fraud
probe. Attacks by militarized police against peaceful demonstrators are growing
in number and strength. The entire electoral process is broken, worse than in the
On December 24, 2016 at about
2:00 pm Haitian time (5 pm PST) in an escalating show of force, militarized
police armed to the teeth, shot indiscriminately into a crowd of thousands.
Many demonstrators were wounded on Martin Luther King Avenue, in the city of
Port au Prince, in Haiti.
Members of Fanmi Lavalas
were especially targeted. A sitting member of parliament had his car shot up by
police. According to witnesses a policeman took his automatic weapon and
smashed out the back window of the car owned by a Fanmi Lavalas candidate for
the Senate. A journalist from Radio Timoun, the people’s radio station, was
also injured by police gunfire and was taken to the hospital.  The people announced that demonstrations
would continue on December 25, 2016, day 34. They will not stop.
Fascism sends its Seasons
Greetings full of repression from UN occupied Haiti. 
A critical question
people should be asking themselves is why do a bunch of fascist, billionaire
whites; their international quislings; and the internal puppet leadership of
Haiti; want so badly to maintain an apartheid regime, and the occupation and
ownership of a sovereign Afrikan country they describe as “the poorest
country in the Western Hemisphere?” 
Recall that Haiti was
forced to pay the blood sucking World Bank and its IMF vampire siblings more
than a million dollars per week to satisfy debts incurred by the 29 year Papa
Doc and Baby Doc Duvalier family regimes, and other Duvalierist tyrants who
succeeded them. The most recent example of these is the highway robbery of the
treasury by Hillary Clinton’s puppet, Michel Martelly. 
Round and round and round
they go, with the World Bank lying and saying it is eradicating poverty, while
Haitians eat mud cookies in order to repay a debt caused by white theft and to
be considered deserving of “help” from blood sucking multilateral
financial institutions.
Such thieves include the
Clinton Foundation, which claimed magnanimity in their dealings with Haiti, as
billions of dollars of earthquake relief money under their control remained
unaccounted for.
The people of Haiti are
left even more impoverished.
This continual
interference in Haiti’s democratic process keeps happening because: 
(1) Haiti overthrew
chattel enslavement of Afrikan people over 200 years ago by slapping down the
combined military might of France, England, and Spain; thus establishing its
independence, and turning the myth of white supremacy on its head. ”We are the
first Black independent country in the world,” asserts its first democratically
elected president, Jean Bertrand Aristide.  
(2) Even though the same
“civilized” Euro-American and Canadian regimes instigated two coups d’etat
against the government of Jean Bertrand Aristide; the people haven’t ever
stopped resisting tyranny; 
(3) Haitian resistance
keeps getting stronger, despite U.S.-UN occupation of the country. In collusion
with the U.S. government, in 2004 the United Nations brought its
un-peacekeeping, cholera spreading, brutal force of 10,000 MINUSTAH troops into
Haiti. Along with the reconstituted Haitian army headed by drug runners wanted
by the DEA, these combined forces exist to “keep the natives in their
place.” This is with the full support of the Organization of American
States (OAS) and the European Union (EU).
(4) President Jean
Bertrand Aristide fought for and continues to fight for Haitian dignity,
sovereignty, and independence. When he was in office, he refused to be a
sellout president and kept all of the Haitian assets for the Haitian people. In
2003, he demanded that over $22 billion dollars in money extorted from Haiti by
19th century France be restored. Haiti was originally forced to pay
this money starting in 1826, to former slave owning French plantation owners.
(5) Drs. Jean-Bertrand
Aristide and Maryse Narcisse both defy the evil of entrenched tyranny. Dr.
Maryse Narcisse, the 2016 Fanmi Lavalas presidential candidate is in the
streets daily with the people fighting for Haiti’s independence. 
(6) President Aristide
fought for fair trade for Haiti, in defiance of the Clinton regime policies
that collapsed Haiti’s economy.
(7) Haiti’s geographic
location boasts huge oil, gold, and other reserves of wealth. She is also
strategically located in relationship to Cuba.
(8) President Aristide
attacked and threatened the hegemony and corruption of Haiti’s 1% ruling elite
by enforcing labor and taxation legislation laws.
The U.S. attitude toward
Haiti has always been one of keeping Afrikans “in their place,” as
described by white supremacy.
U.S. 19th century
government didn’t want a free Afrikan state dismantling its brutal slave
economy. So enslaver U.S. president Thomas Jefferson gave Napoleon $40,000.00
to re-enslave Haiti. He also put the word out that an Afrikan person was only
worth three fifths of a white person. Napoleon got his butt kicked, Jefferson
lost a lot of money but acquired the Louisiana Purchase for a song, and Haiti
was free.
Fast-forward to 1915 and
U.S. president Woodrow Wilson of Birth of a
Nation-reinstitute-the-KKK-filmmaking fame. His Secretary of State, William
Byron Jennings “disapproved” of “Niggers, speaking French!”
in Haiti. Wilson sent in the Marines to occupy and rob Haiti from 1915-1934. 
Fast-forward again to 2004.
Haitians kept deciding
that their “place” was to be free, so the IRI, Colin Powell – another
lying Sec of State, the CIA, and USAID kidnapped President Aristide and his
family by transporting them as “cargo” to the Central Afrikan Republic, in a US
plane designed for the program of “extraordinary rendition.”
Well, that didn’t work
either because Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Trans-Africa founder Randall
Robinson and others snatched them back from the brink of captivity and they
went into exile, first in Jamaica then in South Africa until the power of the
Haitian people brought them back home to Haiti. 
Hurricanes, earthquakes,
odious Euro-U.S. debt designed to kill people by the dollar, Duvalier Papa and
Baby Doc, the U.S. government and the U.S. puppet’s thefts of Haitian
resources, DEA drug runners, entrenched racism, foreign domination, onerous
rapes, pre-dawn UN and paramilitary attacks, strip mining, cholera, odious
rapacious Secretaries of State from William Byron Jennings to Hillary Rodham Clinton,
terrorist Tonton Macoutes, starvation, murders, kidnappings, and disappearances
of children, freedom fighters, and pro-democracy activists Lovinsky Pierre
Antoine, Father Gérard-Jean Juste, to name but two; mud cookies for food…
In spite of all of these
horrible things and more, the Afrikan people of Haiti keep fighting to be
free.  Haitian resistance to entrenched U.S.
interference in her government has not ceased for over 200 years. It will not
stop. It is about to be 2017, right now. 
The Haitian Revolution,
from 1791-1804…It is happening again. The people of Haiti will be free.
