Human Rights Reports

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights Universal Declaration of Human Rights

It is terribly cruel, grossly repugnant, inhuman and uncivilized for any human being, due to their nationality, Black race or revolutionary legacy to be forcibly incarcerated at home, by international laws and their applications solely to Haitians. Haitians are abused, coerced and forced to live without the freedom of association with other human beings worldwide and prevented from asserting the human soul's basic thirst to travel, expand or merely to witness Nature's global vastness, majesty and boundless beauty. No human being is an alien. No law is justified that works to contain a nation of millions of Blacks on an Island for more than two hundred years because said people broke their US/Euro enslavement and are a bad example to other freedom lovers worldwide. Haitians have suffered enough isolation. There should be one Hemispheric Americas passport in addition to the nation-state passports. This would be true globalization.

Besides the right to travel freely, the freedom of association with other Haitians and other human beings worldwide - fair and equal access to world markets, loans, financial credits, the world's cultures, religions; fair and equal access to observe and absorb Nature's majesty, beauty and divinity; the right to live in dignity without local governmental repression or international/foreign interference; access to clean water, clean air, affordable housing, living wages, freedom of religion as well as, opportunities for fair and equal employment and basic health care - these, are basic human rights for Haitians, not charity. In Haiti, a Haitianist-designed education, legal and economic system to promote and protect Haitian society, sovereignty, spirituality, Vodun psychology, art, music and culture are a Haitians' birthright. The Haitian peoples' basic human, political, economic, property, travel, cultural and civil rights ought not be systematically eviscerated in the name of "free trade, justice, democracy or good governance" by the so-called "international community," or, systematically undermined by any foreign-designed and implemented "reform" or World Bank/IMF/IFC projects.

Please Circulate the human
rights reports.

Help stop U.S. military and brutal political repression of unarmed Lavalas and other Haitian civilians and the systematic de-mobilization of the mass electorate by big U.S. and Haitian business and their Western military forces and proxies in Haiti.

Contact Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders, the Red Cross, Human Rights Watch, ask for updated reports and coverage on the post (Feb. 29, 2004) Coup D'etat human rights atrocities in Haiti.

Press your Congressional representatives and Senators to investigate and your local and national media and newspapers to report the wholesale slaughter in Haiti today of thousands of unarmed Haitians while U.N. soldiers are on the ground and, even participating in these crimes against humanity. This staggering river of blood - of mainly anyone suspected or accused of "voting for Aristide" or being affiliated with someone who "voted or supported the Constitutionally elected government of Haiti" - cannot match the one or two killings per week, during the last days before Feb. 5, 2004, the New York Times, CNN and other mainstream media were so ready to report and exaggerate when the purpose was to destabilize and destroy the democratically elected Aristide/Neptune government

After you've been informed by the human rights reports and our urgent action alerts, contact Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders, the Red Cross , Human Rights Watch, NCHR and others: Ask whether these Human Rights organizations have officially requested that mass murderers and convicted felons such as Guy Phillipe, other coup d'etat murderers such as Louis Jodel Chamblain and Jean Tatoune be arrested and disarmed by the Multinational Interim Force and place in jail for their crimes. If not, why not, especially in light of the U.S. Marines and MIF's violent May 10, 2004 arrest of 69-year old, unarmed Lavalas activist and the political arrests of former officials from the Constitutional government, with no criminal records, and place some under U.S. custody at the Haitian prison in Port-au-Prince.

Ask whether these human rights organizations have action plans to secure the release or have denounced the illegal detention of senior officials and supporters of Fanmi Lavalas, such as, Interior Minister Jocelerme Privert, Harold Sévêre and Anthony Nazaire, all, with no criminal records, unlike Philippe, Chamblain, and Tatoune. But who are political prisoners without event the rights sometimes to receive visits by members of their families.

Write, e-mail, call and ask whether the above-named major human rights organizations, such as Amnesty International, Human Watch, et al are/or, have investigated the conditions, treatment and can report on the plight of the Haitian Refugees being automatically repatriated by the U.S. since February 25th, 2004. Ask about the condition, treatment and plight of Haitian Asylum seekers whose boats have landed throughout the Carribbean.

With regards to those who have reached U.S. shores, ask these human rights organizations what they are doing to support Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haitian refugees, including whether they have official advocated for Temporary Protective Status (TPS) for all refugees from Haiti who are fleeing the terror let loose in Haiti since the February 29, 2004 Coup D'etat, not to mention the torrential rains and foods of the 2004 hurricans - especially hurricane Ivan and tropical Storm Jeanne.
