US Backed Regime In Haiti Targetting Democracy Movement | The Media Co-op


On August 13, the Haitian government summoned former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to court on corruption charges.  This summons is part of a chilling pattern of repression aimed at destroying Aristide’s political party, Fanmi Lavalas, as the country approaches new legislative elections. We denounce it in the strongest possible terms. On March 18, 2011, tens of thousands of people followed President Aristide’s car as it drove from the airport to his home, following his return from seven years of forced exile.  They then climbed over the walls into the courtyard of the Aristides’ residence to continue an emotional and heart-felt greeting for Haiti’s first democratically elected president, overthrown in a U.S.-orchestrated coup in 2004.  In his speech at the airport, President Aristide focused on education and the importance of inclusion for all Haitians in the process of restoring democracy. via | The Media Co-op
