U.S. Marines convert schools into prisons.
U.S. Marines turned a medical university into prison and barracks. Youth
radio and tv station (Radyo & Tele Timoun) ransacked and shut down.
Union buses burnt.
- 3,000 prisoners freed.
As the coup forces took cities throughout February,
2004, they burned police stations, unlocked the nation's jails, freeing
all of the prisoners, including other FRAPH and disbanded army officials,
called "freedom fighters" by Gerarld Latortue, along with
convicted rapist, murderers and common criminals. "Approximately
3,000 were freed overall, including many
who were serving sentences or awaiting trial for serious human rights
There is no apparent effort being made to capture the escapees, among
whom were persons convicted in the Raboteau Massacre trial."During
Feb, 2004, the Coup D'etat people released the triggerman in the Jean
Dominque case from prison. Other convicted criminals and known human
rights abusers such as Jean Pierre Baptiste (alias Jean Tatoune),
Jean-Claude Duperval, Carl Dorelien, and General Prosper Avril were
free to roam Haiti, join the Latortue police force or run for President
of Haiti!. The Marines shut out over 200 medical students from their
school and turned the classrooms into barracks and prison cells. Literary,
health, and social programs for the poor where destroyed.
- 100 Haitians
rounded up in the North, left to die in Shipping Containers:
"Revelations from Afghanistan were chronicled in the new documentary
film recently screened by the European Parliament. "Afghan Massacre:
Convoy of Death," documents the deaths of up to 3,000 suspected
Taliban Fighters. They perished in shipping containers where they
were riddled with bullets and literally left out in the sun to stew
to death in their own juices. Back in our hemisphere, in Haiti, over
100 (suspected) members of the Lavalas Party were rounded up by newly
reconstituted death squads, forced into a shipping container and dropped
into the sea." Quoted from
"Our nasty little racist war in Haiti" by Michael
I. Niman, June 7, 2004)
- Meanwhile, within a few months, Haiti's jails were re-filled with
the members of the Constitutional government, including the constitutional

March 13 in which Marines fired upon and killed up to 10
Haitians in Bel-Air, a poor section of Port-au-Prince. According to

fired upon and returned fire. However, witnesses interviewed by the
delegation consistently declared that there were no guns being fired,
that they were having a demonstration with flares or fireworks.

male who was shot in the back by a Marine bullet.) It appears
that American armed forces overreacted and used excessive force on
this occasion. " (See, National Lawyers Guild Report, Phase II)

murdered by police

He was his mother’s only provider. Now she with no provider

testimony grieving mother explaining how Michelet Petit earned his
living by being a “Police beton.” When we asked
what is a Police Beton. It was explained that a “police beton”
is someone with community respect who voluntarily would go to a busy
intersection or heavily trafficked crossroads and direct the drivers.
It takes years of apprenticeship to get your own crossing. Drivers
pay the experience crossing guides a tip for the service. It requires
great skill to be good at this and to command the attention of drivers
each trying to get the right-of-way to go first at a busy intersection.
That’s how Michelet Petit made his living, took care of his
mother and two babies. He was not a gangster or criminal. Like all
the others, his crime was that he lived in Bel Air and could or may
have sympathy for the oustered Constitutional government that empowered

"People were killed in their homes and also just outside of their
homes, on the way to work. According to this account, one man named

way to work for a flower company. Another man,
* Mones Belizaire, was shot as he got ready to go

* A woman who was a street vendor was shot in the head and killed
* One man was shot in his ribs while he was trying to brush his teeth.
* Another man was shot in the jaw as he left his house to try and

* Yet another man named Mira was shot and killed
while urinating in his home.
* A mother, Sonia Romelus, and her two young children
(Stanley & Nelson Romelus) were killed in their
home, reportedly by UN fire after UN forces lobbed a 83-CC gas grenade
into their home.The video footage taken by this eyewitness during
the operation shows many of these killings while they were occurring.
While it does not show images of the UN troops as they were firing
into the community, one can view at least 10 unarmed people either
in the process of being killed or who were already killed. Many were
killed by headshots, such as 31-year-old Leonce Chery moments after
a gun shot ripped off his jaw. Chery was clearly unarmed. There are
audible machine gun blasts occurring in the background. The video
footage also depicts the bodies of Sonia Romelus and her two young
children, lying in blood on the floor of their home. Apparently, Sonia
was killed by the same bullet that passed through the body of her
one-year old infant son Nelson.
She was reportedly holding him as the UN opened fire. Next to their
two bodies is that of her four-old son Stanley Romelus who was killed
by a shot to the head. The video footage shows a weeping Fredi Romelus,
recounting how UN troops lobbed a red smoke grenade into his house
and then opened fire killing his wife and two children. "They
surrounded our house this morning and I ran thinking my wife and the
children were behind me.
They couldn't get out and the blan [UN] fired into the house."

Drèd Wilme - "...The people of the neighborhood
(where he lived) describe Drèd Wilme as a protector...but for
the United Nations and the coup regime which is running things in
Haiti, and the National Police, they describe him as a "bandit."
In fact they put wanted posters all over with his name on it and names
of other popular leaders, as well as actual criminals, and put them
up, basically encouraging people to turn the in. So the difference
between the way they describe Drèd Wilme as a bandit, that's
what the United Nations general who was in charge of - this (Brazilian
general- Force Commander--Lieutenant General Augusto Heleno Ribero
Pereira), who was in charge of this operation said 'We got him, we
got the bandit. We're very pleased with the operation.' And about
fifty people were killed in that operation. There was a mass grave;
the bodies were rotting, the people took the bodies and dragged them
to a makeshift mass grave, because there was too much disease and
smell. (See transcript

they found nothing but shot him in the head anyway and left him in the
street. The traumatized brother was video taped minutes later, shaking
and incoherent, trying to figure out why they killed his brother. He
wanted to know if he could take the body with him. He asked out loud
to no one in particular did he have permission to take his brother’s
body. Then, the video shows the brother loading up Emano Pierre’s
body on a wheel cart and hauling it off down street. At one juncture,
the brother stopped pushing the cart and took off his brother’s
shirt and pants. Leaving him just with his black boxers underpants on
alone. Later, after being sent this footage, we the Ezili Danto Witness
project asked why did the brother take off Emano Pierre’s clothes
after the police shot him. We were informed because “it’s
a mystical thing.”)

several minutes after she was killed,” Boukman explained. “It

the streets and dogs fed on them. The situation is horrible.”

started. He also indicated that MINUSTAH officers were present at
the scene. Several homes were also set on fire during the grave incidents
at Grand Ravine....Several area residents have abandoned their homes

phase is the fight against crime, which is said to be gaining ground
in this area.
"The three individuals who were arrested are accused of responsibility
in acts of murder, kidnapping and armed robbery, said Mr. Lerebours.

2 dead and 3 people arrested. On Tuesday, November
8, 2005, UN tanks (with canons mounted on them, but tanks without
threads) and helicopters attacked in Haiti, firing into Site Soley
- a 23 yr old woman, a
man in his early forties were killed, and, at nine o'clock this same
day, 3 people were arrested. The UN tanks were active in several of
the 34 regions of the Site Soley area. There were two tanks from the
Peruvian "peacekeeping contingent shooting in the direction of
Belle court and another tank shooting in the direction of the Boston
neighborhood of Site Soley. "The cannons from these tanks were
issuing projectiles which, when they hit the ground, would explode
and anybody who was around there might very well get hit by shrapnel
or explosive....And there was one man who had bullets in the head,
at the time he wasn’t yet dead, and they took him there; I don’t
know if he was the one that was killed or not. So, it’s a continuing
assault on the poor neighborhoods. They come in there, people are
being hit in their house, because a lot of these houses they are very
flimsy, they are like shanties, they are made of cardboard and tin
and sometimes cement blocks. Some are hit in their house, some are
hit on their way to work; some are coming home from work. So it is
an assault on the civilian population; it is basically
almost a genocidal assault." (Dave

HLLN comment on the continuing occupation of Haiti: In what should
be a community police function, military soldiers from the multinational
UN contingent (The 21st century Lerclerc brigade) are executing, not
arresting, "suspected criminals" in Haiti with no judicial
oversight and against the Geneva Convention and other well established
rules for military engagement and clearly beyond "peacekeeping"
functions which normally means MEDIATION between two political different
armed groups. But because Haiti is weak, poor and Black, profiling
of Lavalas supporters is the standard to determine whether a Haitian
male is "a gang member" standards of law seem suspended
for this nation by the international community (US, Canada, France)
and the UN. (See, Justin Podur's "Two
Faced In Haiti" for further details. See also "Undermining
Haiti", where Mark Weisbrot writes: "The Bush
Administration and its allies seem to be hoping that Haiti is just
too poor and too black for anyone to care about whether democratic,
constitutional or even human rights are respected there. They have
also cited the violence from both sides of the conflict to disguise
the fact that most of that violence is directed at supporters of the
ousted government to prevent them from returning to power through
a fair election.
On November, at least 4
Haitian men, called "gang members" killed by UN troops.
12 other residents killed

"The bodies of two young men
were displayed by gang members in the slum. U.N. military spokesman
Col. El Ouafi Boulbars said the bodies of two other
suspected gang members were turned over to police.
Gang members say at least a dozen people have died in the area over
the past week. U.N. military spokesman Col. El Ouafi Boulbars said
it was not possible to provide an exact death toll, but confirmed
that several suspected gang members had been killed in recent clashes.

unspecified number of weapons and stolen vehicles.

from the gangs and the situation has begun to degenerate," Boulbars
