No surprise that Haiti is still recovering from the January 2010 quake…any country would have trouble coming back from the third deadliest quake in human history. But instead of helping Haiti, the rest of the world has helped a bad situation turn into a hellish one.
Kids still raped and harvested for slavery in white homes
Its well known that since the quake, thousands of children have been shuttled away to work in white homes under the false pretenses of being adopted by charities. My man Eugene Robinson said it best: “True charity would have been to help those families care for their children — not to put them in a bus and drive them away.”
Oftentimes, these kids are beaten to death to instill them with good, white, Christian values…
On top of having to deal with these modern slave traders operating under church banners, girls in Haiti are routinely forced to trade sex for the food vouchers that the United Nations occupying force passes out. These girls are then forced to bear children behind trash heaps and on sidewalks, are infected with HIV/AIDS and STDs at epidemic rates, and have the highest infant mortality rate in this hemisphere.
Money to kill Libyans, none to save Haitians
Less than half of all money promised to aid Haiti has been delivered. One year after the quake, the American Red Cross had “spent or signed agreements to spend” little more than half of US$479M raised by its appeal (http://www.stabroeknews.com/2011/opinion/editorial/08/20/haiti%E2%80%99s-incomplete-recovery/), and in May the US Government Accountability Office reported that to date just $184 million of Congress’ $1.14 billion aid allocation has been committed to relief and redevelopment projects.
While the U.S. spends 10 Million a day killing Gaddafi’s people, only 34% of NATO funding for cholera treatment had been approved. Cholera has infected more than 200,000 Haitians since the quake and has killed thousands. Other diseases, malnutrition, HIV and other STDs have ravaged thousands more. Babies are born to 12 and 13 year old rape victims on sidewalks and behind garbage heaps since access to hospitals are denied to those who can’t pay.

The world doesnt want a stable Haiti (WikiLeaks)
The U.S has blocked every attempt at Haitian progress by:
1. Screwing Haitian workers by increasing wages - The United States embassy in Haiti worked closely with factory owners contracted by Levi’s, Hanes, and Fruit of the Loom to aggressively block a minimum wage rise for Haitian assembly zone workers. The factory owners refused to pay $0.62 an hour, or $5 per eight-hour day, smacking the Haitian government in the face since the measure was unanimously passed by Haiti’s parliament in June 2009. The cables, provided by WikiLeaks, show that behind the scenes, factory owners were vigorously backed by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the US embassy.
2. Destroying democracy by installing puppet politicians and getting rid of Aristide – Wonder why Wyclef couldnt become President of his own country? Take a guess. And Bertrand Aristide, the most popular Haitian politician in modern times was “overthrown” with the help of U.S. Navy Seals.
United States officials also led a far-reaching international campaign aimed at keeping former Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide exiled in South Africa, secret US State Department cables show. Aristide, who won the 2000 presidential elections, was rendered a virtual prisoner for the past seven years.The cables show that high-level US and United Nations officials even discussed a politically motivated prosecution of Aristide to prevent him from “gaining more traction with the Haitian population and returning to Haiti”. The US maintained publicly that Aristide resigned in the face of a ragtag force of former Haitian army soldiers rampaging in Haiti’s north. But Aristide called his escort by a US Navy SEAL team on his flight into exile “a modern-day kidnapping”.
Two months later, the UN Stabilisation Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) was established ― a 9000-strong UN occupation force that still oversees Latin America’s first independent nation. Aristide has spoken forcefully against the UN occupation, particularly in his 2010 year-end letter to the Haitian people. “We cannot forget the [US]$5 billion which has already been spent for MINUSTAH over these past six years,” he wrote.“Anybody can see how many houses, hospitals, and schools that wasted money could have built for the victims” of the January 12, 2010, earthquake that destroyed much of Port-au-Prince and surrounding regions
3. Death By GMO – Monsanto is known for aggressively pushing seeds, particularly GMO seeds, in both the global North and South—including through highly restrictive technology agreements with farmers who are not always made fully aware of what they are signing.
The hybrid corn seeds Monsanto has donated to Haiti are treated with the fungicide Maxim XO, and the calypso tomato seeds are treated with thiram. Thiram belongs to a highly toxic class of chemicals called ethylene bisdithiocarbamates (EBDCs). Results of tests of EBDCs on mice and rats caused concern to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which then ordered a special review. The EPA determined that EBDC-treated plants are so dangerous to agricultural workers that they must wear special protective clothing when handling them.
The concern of Haitian social movements is not just about chemical dangers and the possibility of future GMO imports. They claim that the future of Haiti depends on local production with local seeds for local consumption—otherwise known as food sovereignty. Monsanto’s arrival in Haiti, they say, is a further threat to such a future.
“People in the U.S. need to help us produce, not give us food and seeds. They’re ruining our chance to support ourselves,” said farmer Jonas Deronzil of a peasant cooperative in the rural region of Verrettes.A coalition of peasant farmers has called Monsanto one of the “principal enemies of peasant sustainable agriculture and food sovereignty for all peoples.”
(The Haitian farmers burned those damned seeds. Apparently, they are smarter than our dumb Church’s Chicken eating asses over here!)
But why wouldnt the world want a stable, healthy, and peaceful Haiti?
In 2007, Haiti was supposed to join a Venezuelan-led oil alliance known as PetroCaribe. According to Wikileaked cables, the U.S. embassy started to “pressure” Haitian leader Rene Preval from joining PetroCaribe, saying that it would “cause problems with [the United States.]” Major oil companies — such as ExxonMobil and Chevron — began threatening to cut off ties with Haiti, and Sanderson repeatedly met with the energy firms to assure them that she would pressure Haiti at the “highest levels of government.”
Rene Preval went ahead with the deal anyway, since Haiti would only have to pay “only 60 percent up front with the remainder payable over twenty-five years at 1 percent interest” — a remarkably good deal for the Western hemisphere’s poorest country. The U.S. embassy at the time noted that Haiti would save a hundred million U.S. dollars a year under the terms of the PetroCaribe deal; the saved dollars would then be earmarked for development in schools, health care, and infrastructure. Yet, under the charge of ambassador Janet Sanderson, the United States immediately set out to sabotage the deal.
So one of the short answers is……resources.
What Can We Do?
Absolutely nothing. Blacks worldwide are disassociated and subject to the same horrors in varying magnitude as the people of Haiti. There is nothing any of us here in America can do while we are still dependently breastfeeding from the monster that keeps us drunk with its milk.
“Cant we donate money and Life Straws and send them over?”
Yea, try getting around the state department to get that ish over there.
As it has always been…as Malcolm, Marcus, and Martin came to understand… the solution is SEPARATION and the establishment of a UNITED BLACK AMERICA. Only then can we autonomously coordinate actions on behalf of Black, not white, values and save our people and ourselves.
