Haiti Today

‘UN soldiers took over from U.S. Marines after Washington’s coup against the democratically elected president, Jean Bertrand Aristide, in 2004. Since then, Aristide’s party has been effectively banned. Former U.S. president Bill Clinton holds no public office in his own country, but he rules like a viceroy as the UN’s Special Envoy to Haiti. The country has been reduced to a kind of protectorate of the UN – which, for all practical purposes, translates as a colony of the United States.’ –Black Agenda Report. There is no doubt that the US government is responsible for the misery that remains today in Haiti. Let’s not forget how the US REALLY rules over the rest of the world. Haiti’s misery is no exception for what rule by the US Empire brings.
