WTF is going on in Haiti?

Big world; lots going on that gets off the radar screen.

Ms. Kolbe said that according to local Haitians, Canadian peacekeepers made death threats against them during house raids, and sexual advances against women while the peacekeepers were drunk and off duty.<br><br>However, Ms. Kolbe herself is now the subject of controversy after revelations that the 30-year-old master's degree student at Wayne State University's school of social work in Detroit used to be an advocacy journalist who wrote under the name Lyn Duff and worked at a Haitian orphanage founded by Mr. Aristide.<br><br>"How can Kolbe/Duff's research into the issues of human-rights violations be regarded as objective when she herself states that for 3.5 years she worked with the Lafanmi Selavi centre for street children, where she befriended Aristide himself and presumably some of the boys who later left the centre . . . [who] then acted as armed enforcers?" Charles Arthur, co-ordinator of the British-based Haiti Support Group, wrote this week in a letter of complaint to The Lancet.<br><br>"There is a concerted international campaign to distort news and manipulate information about Haiti with the apparent aim of repairing the reputation of Aristide. I am concerned The Lancet has unwittingly been used as part of the pro-Aristide propaganda campaign."<br>Nobody from The Lancet was available to comment yesterday, but Ms. Kolbe said the magazine is investigating, and she is confident it will find no conflict of interest.<br><br>"The Lancet would have appreciated hearing it from me and not from an outsider," she said in an interview. "But it's not like they wouldn't have published the article. The findings aren't at issue."<br><br>Ms. Kolbe said she used to write articles under the name Lyn Duff -- an old nickname and her mother's surname -- but wanted to go by her father's surname and her real first name once she entered academia.<br><br>She also said that from 1994-1997, she worked at an orphanage founded by Mr. Aristide, met him several times, and was an admirer of the then-president. Some of the children at the orphanage maintained links with him. "I am not a supporter of Lavalas [Aristide's political party]. I have warm feelings toward Aristide, but I am critical of some of his decisions."<br><br>She and her co-author, assistant professor Royce Hutson, defended the results of their survey, which has prompted some groups to call for a parliamentary inquiry into Canada's role in Haiti.<br><br>Mr. Aristide's first term in office was interrupted by a 1991 military coup and his second ended abruptly on Feb. 29, 2004, after a rebellion of thugs and ex-soldiers forced him out. He argues the United States forced him into exile.<br><br>Canada sent 450 soldiers to Haiti in March, 2004, part of a UN peacekeeping mission of 6,700 soldiers and 1,600 police. The soldiers left in August that year, and there are currently 66 police officers in Haiti leading the UN police force.<br><br>The Lancet peer-reviewed study of 5,720 randomly selected Haitians living in the capital found that in the 22-month period since Mr. Aristide's ouster, 97 had received death threats, 232 had been threatened physically and 86 sexually. According to survey respondents, one-third of those who issued death threats were criminals, 18 per cent were Haitian National Police and other government security agents and another 17 per cent were foreign soldiers. Only 6 per cent were Lavalas.<br><br>Mr. Arthur said these findings contradict independent human-rights investigators who report that many of the violations have been committed by criminals, Haitian police and anti-Aristide groups -- as well as Lavalas supporters. "My concern is that either the conduct or interpretation of the research was skewed or biased in order to exonerate Fanmi Lavalas/Aristide supporters from accusation of involvement in human-rights violations," he said in his letter.<br><br>Nicholas Galletti, with Rights and Democracy, a Montreal non-governmental organization, said the author's background further calls into question a study "based on flawed methodology" whereby responsibility for crimes is attributed to groups without a proper criminal investigation or trial.<br><br>However, Prof. Hutson says the study acknowledges the limitations of having to rely on subject recall.<br><br>"The charges of bias are baseless. We were aware Athena had written under another name and found no conflict. Our concern is the way UN soldiers are interacting with Haitians."</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--><br><br> <p></p><i></i>

The Tontons Macoutes, “boogeymen” in Haitian Creole, were created as a paramilitary force to be stronger than the Haitian Army, in order to guard the Duvalier regime against assassination attempts in the midst of Haiti’s violent political climate.

Death is cheap...only 700 bucks a month:<br><br> *<br><br>[edit]<!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr><br><br>The formation of FRAPH<br><br>FRAPH was established by Emmanuel "Toto" Constant, who went on the CIA payroll as an informant and spy in early 1992 (according to the Agency, this relation ended in mid-1994, but the following October the American Embassy in Haïti was openly acknowledging that Constant – now a born-again democrat – was on its payroll). According to Constant, shortly after Aristide's ouster, Colonel Patrick Collins, a U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), attache who was stationed in Haïti from 1989 to 1992, pressured him to organize a front that could balance the Aristide movement and do intelligence work against it (it is believed that members of FRAPH were working, and perhaps still are, for two social service agencies funded by the Agency for International Development, one of which maintains sensitive files on the movements of the Haïtian poor). [1]<br>[edit]<br><br>U.S. involvement in Haïti<br><br>During the 1992 U.S. presidential campaign, candidate Bill Clinton had promised to restore democracy to Haïti if elected. Inaugurated in 1993, the administration had to deal with a continuing refugee problem in Florida. Condemning FRAPH and the military regime as nothing more than "armed thugs," the administration cooperated with a multinational force and dispatched 15,000 troops sent and a high-level negotiating team (Jimmy Carter, Sam Nunn, and Colin Powell) to force the military to step down, restoring Aristide to power in August 1994 after international sanctions and pressure had failed to produce any results. Although the presence of U.S. and UN peacekeepers helped restore calm and security, this success, claims researcher Lisa A. McGowan, was undermined by their refusal to disarm the disbanded Haïtian military and paramilitaries. As McGowan wrote,<br><br> [USAID] is providing funding and technical assistance to strengthen Haïti’s judicial system, yet the U.S. has refused Haïtian government requests to deport FRAPH leader Constant, who was imprisoned in the U.S. and wanted in Haïti on murder charges. Instead, the U.S. Justice Department released him from prison. Furthermore, the Clinton administration refuses to give the Haïtian government uncensored copies of the documents seized from FRAPH headquarters, raising suspicions that the documents contain incriminating information about CIA and other U.S. collaboration with Haïtian paramilitaries. Documents that were obtained revealed, for example, that the CIA knew that Constant was directly implicated in the 1993 murder of Justice Minister Guy Malory, yet kept him on their payroll until the return of Aristide in 1994. [2]<br><br>It subsequently emerged that the US government had in fact played a significant role in establishing and funding FRAPH. The investigative journalist Allan Nairn broke the story in an article published in The Nation in 1994. [3] Nairn based his findings on interviews with military, paramilitary and intelligence officials in Haïti and the United States as well as Green Beret commanders and internal documents from the U.S. and Haïtian armies. Nairn spoke directly with Constant himself, then being held in a Maryland jail, shortly before he was due to be deported to Haïti. According to Constant, he started the group that became FRAPH at the urging of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and that even after the U.S. occupation got under way in September 1994, "other people from my organization were working with the DIA.", aiding in operations directed against "subversive activities". [4] When Nairn tried to follow up (Constant insisted on a face-to-face meeting), the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service denied him access, explaining that Constant had had a change of heart and no longer wanted to talk.[5]<br><br>Constant later confirmed in 1995 on CBS's "60 Minutes" that the CIA paid him about $700 a month and that he created FRAPH while on the CIA payroll. According to Constant, the FRAPH had been formed "with encouragement and financial backing from the DIA and the CIA." (Miami New Times, 26 February 2004) [6]<br><br>In February 1996, the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) announced that it had obtained thousands of pages of newly declassified U.S. documents, which they claim revealed that the U.S. government recognized the brutal nature of FRAPH but denied it in public. Describing the attitude of US government officials, CCR lawyer Michael Ratner said<br><br> they were talking out of both sides of their mouth. They were talking about restoring democracy to Haïti, but at the same time, they were undermining democracy in the coup period -- at times supporting a group that committed terrorist acts against the Haïtian people. [7]<br><br>According to Ratner, U.S. suspicions of Aristide’s leftist populism prodded them to seek support from even the most brutal anti-Aristide elements. Observers such as Ratner, Nairn and Lisa McGowan have argued that covert assistance to antidemocratic forces such as FRAPH was used to pressure Ariside into abandoning his ambitious program for social reform and adopt harsh economic reforms when the U.S. returned him to power.<br><br>According to Bill O'Neil, consultant for the New York-based National Coalition for Haïtian Rights, though the CIA and the Pentagon encouraged FRAPH early on, "within a few weeks or a few months, [U.S. support] was largely jettisoned." O'Neil, though, expressed concern that the U.S.'s reluctance to completely sever relations with FRAPH until 1995 (when Constant was arrested) may have allowed several high-profile figures to go into hiding.

Here is an article about the use of voodoo (voudou) by Duvalier. It is written by a voudou practitioner and is therefore not anti-voudou but talks of how Duvalier subverted voudou and used it for his own ends. <br><br>As a side note, I seem to remember an X-Files in which a US military officer committed suicide in Haiti or someplace where voudou was the force behind it, but I could be wrong. <br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr><br>The De-Macoutization of Vodou<br><br>The de-Macoutization of Vodou is is absolutely the most poignant issue facing Vodou today.<br><br>A bit of historical background - The dictator Francois Duvalier subsidized Vodou, which at the time had passed through a period of state persecution. This was originally a very worthy act, based on a nascent 'black pride' movement in Haiti. He subsidized, and later subverted, many of the Vodou clergy. Some of us, I am ashamed to say, turned a blind eye to Duvalier's horrific human rights abuses. Duvalier created his own paramilitary force, called the TonTon Macoutes, originally to protect his regime from the Haitian Army, but later to do his dirty work.<br><br>Following the popular revolt against Francois' son and successor Jean-Claude, and a series of military regimes, an internationally monitored election in December 1990 brought populist Catholic priest Jean-Claude Aristide to power in a landslide victory.

"Macoutes" reincarnated themselves as FRAPH, another terrorist group which committed horrible crimes with or without the assistance of state forces including the Haitian Army. FRAPH and other paramilitary attaches used to stage big demonstrations on the Champs de Mars in Port-au-Prince. I watched as they beat people and forced them to attend. At these demonstrations, popular "rasin" groups like Wawa provided entertainment, and Vodou lwa were invoked.

Not long after puppet president Emile Jonassaint invoked Agarou, a lwa of the sky and of thunder, to prop up the murderous regime, the United Nations Multi-National forces came to Haiti - in the sky! By airplane, that is. If Jonassaint had invoked Met Agwe instead, the first troops would have come by boat! LOL! If he had invoked Dantor, the landing force would have been composed of black women!

Re: Pro-business Group of 184 and GBN brownshirts

A little more on the work of André “Andy” Apaid, Jr., and his <!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>Group of 184</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--> (as mentioned in seemslikeadream's DU link) who are "...a supposedly broad front of “civil society” organizations modeled on similar anti-government coalitions in Chavez’s Venezuela and Allende’s Chile."<br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr><br>According to accounts the atmosphere was tense as Father Jean-Juste, outfitted in robes of the sacrament, entered the church with six other priests and a Catholic bishop. While paying his respects to the victim, the priest was verbally and physically assaulted by members of the pro-coup Group 184, notably the GNB<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--> GBN? <br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>The GNB which was funded and cultivated by the Group 184 and is led by reactionary businessman Andy Apaid, is now referred to by followers of Aristide as the " testicles up the bourgeoisie's derriere" movement, and is led by a disgruntled employee of the Haitian parliament under Aristide, Herve Santilus...The GNB are described as the "brown shirts" or shock troops of the anti-Aristide movement that has used tactics earning them the reputation of being fascist in nature.
