Intro To Interview:
by Ezili Dantò/Marguerite Laurent

Charlemagne Peralte was a Haitian man who took up arms to defend the Haitian peasants being massacred by the U.S. Marines in Haiti during the U.S. occupation of 1915. (Go to "Black Arabs and Bandit Kings" for reliable info on Charlemagne Peralte and first U.S. occupation of Haiti.)

He was hunted down, executed and then the U.S. Marines who killed him, nailed his dead body to a door in the public square in the North of Haiti at Cap Haitien.

To the people of Site Soley, the current U.S.-backed UN hunt for Emmanuel Dread Wilme ("Drèd Wilmè" in Kreyòl) reminds them of the U.S. crucifixion of Charlemagne Peralte back in 1915.

Below is an interview with Dread Wilme before he was wounded, on April 4, 2005, speaking from Haiti on Lakou New York, a radio station in the U.S.

In his own words, (in Kreyòl with English transcription made for HLLN) Emmanuel "Dread" Wilme explains the situation in Site Soley and in Haiti that the people in the poor neighborhoods are facing.

It is the position of the Haitian Lawyers Leadership that Emmanuel "Dread" Wilme, similar to any other accused person, should be accorded justice not summarily crucified - executed.

If the Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network ("HLLN") had known, in advance, that MINUSTHA was planning to assassinate, for maybe just the SHOW OF FORCE of it, the ex-military soldiers at Petit Goave, who, according to reports had already agreed to peacefully vacate (within three days), the police station they had taken over, we would have denounced this slaughter and demanded justice for the Petit Goave ex-soldiers (See Aumodh’s human rights report.)

If the HLLN had known, in advance, that foreign troops along with their Haitian collaborators intented to straight up assassinate Grenn Sonen and Remissainthe Ravix, giving them no opportunity for arrest or trial, HLLN would have denounced this street/vigilante slaughter and demanded justice for Sonen and Ravix. Latortue once called both these former military men “Freedom Fighters” and Ravix was, at one point, even welcomed at Latortue’s National Palace. Both were executed when they stopped supporting the Coup d'etat government.

Based on the statements made by the Coup d'etat government and the U.N. forces very similarly to the ones made before the killings of Remissainthe Ravix and Grenn Sonen, it appears, in advance, that the foreign troops along with their Haitian collaborators intend to capture “gangsters,” in Site Soley, especially Emmanuel Dread Wilme at ALL COSTS, even if it might entail the massacre of unarmed civilians.

There’s a reporting dated April 18, 2005 claimimg that right now, this very moment, there is “a joint MINUSTAH-police operation aimed at restoring order in Site Soley and also at finding "gang leader, Dread Wilme.” (See, UN force in Haiti kill gangster who shoots dead Filipino peacekeeper).

Thus, we know, in advance, what is intended for Dread Wilme.

We denounce all summary executions. Remind U.N. troops of their legal obligation to protect civilians and accord justice to all suspect.

Update: Emmanuel Dread Wilme, Haiti's warrior assassinated by UN/US occupiers on July 6, 2005

On July 6, 2005, three months after Ezili's HLLN wrote this plea for law justice, Dread Wilme in his family where assassinated in cold blood by 1,440 heavily armed UN/US troops. With their tanks, helicopters and advanced weapons, 440 UN/US soldiers entered Site Soley in the dead of night (3am) while the community was asleep. One thousand (1000) other UN/US soldiers surrounded Site Soley to make sure no one could leave. Bombs where reported unleashed and dropped on the unarmed civilian community.

According to The Cite Soleil Massacre Declassification Project the UN fired over 22,000 rounds of ammunition into this thin-shacked, cardboard-house, poverty-stricken Black community of about 450,000 Haitians, most having been forced off their safer rural lands by US/USAID/WB/IMF policies in the 80s and 90s. The overpopulation and imposed poverty brought crime to Haiti's capital as well as mobilized the desire of the people of Site Soley for a democratic government that would look out for their domestic interests and not that of US agribusiness, USAID's sterilize, starve (through use/non-use of food aid and free trade fraud promoting faminie), sweatshop, slaughter (through dictatorship, Bush regime change, UN occupation), incarceration (massive "preventive" detention), police/military brutality and contamination programs, all, to meet US State Department-Kissinger's depopulation and weakening of Haiti's public and social infrastructure initiatives. Population control, sterilize, force-assimilate, poison and starve - that is US foreign policy as carried out, say, since 1975 when President Ford signed off on Kissinger's NSSM 200 as official US foreign policy. Haiti was required not to invest in public health care, schooling, sanitation, its infrastructure and forced to privatized public companies servicing the public good. A flood -"Lavalas"- of people in Port au Prince and throughout Haiti rose up to wash away the US/Euro/World Bank/Agribusiness/Sweatshop impositions, when they came together and voted for Haiti's first democratically elected president, Jean Bertrand Aristide, who was a spokesperson for the poor. This mobilization which was in direct reaction to US imposition that had increased, by the millions, the population in Haiti's capital would lead to two Bush Regime changes (1991 and 2004) to "pacify" the justly angry residents forced into the Haitian capital as cheap labor in what the foreign NGOs' would come to label as the "red zones" of Site Soley, Bel Air, Martissant, Solino, et al... where they would be denied foreign aid, Haiti government aid and help and eventually their support for the Lavalas revolution would bring in the UN occupation, total disenfranchisement of the masses and the UN/US MINUSTAH slaughter and wholesale preventive incarceration of "bandits."

Reportedly, on July 6, 2005, over 60 civilians where slaughtered with hundreds wounded, their meager properties leveled by US/UN firepower. (Video: U.N. Massacre on July 6, 2005 in Site Soley.) The people of Site Soley secreted away Wilmè's body so his body wouldn't be defiled like Charlemagne Peralte by Haiti's occupiers. His funeral was a hero's farewell. His remains decked in a Vodun boat pushed out onto the open seas next to Site Soley water shores, and set to flames for his spirit to soar towards the countless African Ancestors who, like Dread Wilme, had made the ultimate sacrifice for our people's freedom and dignity. Dread Wilme fought off the armies from all the nations that had come to re-colonize Haiti. He fought the multi-nation occupation forces, their hired Haitian guns, alone. Faced them for 16-months against overwhelming odds with only the appreciation of a grateful but disenfranchised nation of impoverished Haitians. Funeral participants indicated to AHP that "there will always be more Drèd Wilmès as long as misery and exclusion is imposed on Haiti by the former enslaving nations. Months after his funeral, on October 17, 2005 on the anniversary of the assassination of Haiti's revolutionary founding father (Oct. 17, 1806), Jean Jacques Dessalines (Janjak Desalin), the people of Site Soley lifted up Dread Wilme in the fashion they have been lifting up the spirit of Dessalines for over two centuries. On October 17, 2005, the people of Site Soley, Haiti, declared, in their own people-authorized naming ceremony, with reportedly thousands in attendance, that Emmanuel Dread Wilme is their "hero for the 21st century... in honor of all of Haiti's freedom fighters, the masses in Haiti's Site Soley renamed and inaugurated a major boulevard in Haiti (Rt. 9) the "Dread Wilme Boulevard" to commemorate his life along with that of Haiti's founding father, Janjak Desalin.

Ezili's HLLN is sad and proud to have stood firm with Dread Wilme and for the people of Haiti's right to self-defense, when no one, not even the white so-called "progressives" or "Liberals" would deign to give him voice or say his name aloud in a positive manner. In fact, many used the media and their platforms to help the UN/US criminalized Dread Wilme, the people of Site Soley and Lavalas, the better to dismiss their slaughter. It wasn't until after his death, that some came forth to report his death and the UN massacres. But Ezili's HLLN said his name aloud, lifted him up while he lived and struggled, wrote and campaigned, virtually alone, against his summary execution by the UN/US occupiers of Haiti. We commissioned this Lakounewyork April 2005 interview with the English transcription for the Ezili Danto Witness Project at a time when Dread Wilme voice, strong as ever, did not betray that he had taken some bullets in his stomach, was wounded and fighting for his life, refusing all urgings to leave Site Soley, lay low and maybe live. We commissioned this interview of Dread Wilme so that future generation of Haitians and concerned citizens for peace and justice in the international community could hear his voice, see that he was no "bandit" but a human being, a responsible community provider, leader and a Haitian patriot with the courage of the revolutionary Kapwa Lamò and Sanit Bèlè.

As a result of our work, the strength, ceaseless struggle and confidence of Haiti's suffering masses and that of some determine Haiti grassroots activists in Haiti, we believe less people were slaughtered in Haiti from 2004 to 2006 by the US/UN. In the July 6th case, the US Ambassador to Haiti, James Foley, not happy with our interventions, sent self-serving cables to Washington stating that we were "spreading rumors" of a massacre, claiming there was video evidence of the illegal goings on and gross abuses of force on unarmed civilians by the UN/US in Haiti. There was video evidence and our reporting, based on subsequent information, showed we had understated the number of troops that entered Site Soley and the number of civilians murdered outright, including UN/US head shots that killed babies asleep in bed with their mother, the old, infirm, handicapped and even pregnant women. Yet, the UN/US reported they were hunting "bandits" and "gangs" in Haiti. The world believed them, ignoring, to this day, the unearned suffering and innocent casualties of imperialism and US/Euro corporate greed. Voiceless folks that Dread Wilme had protected for 16-months in Haiti, with his very life and breath.

**********Emmanuel "Dread" Wilmè speaks!

Interview, direct from Haiti with Emmanuel Dread Wilmè before he was Dread Wilmè was assassinated by UN on July 6, 2005
"Lakou New York" April 4th, 2005 interview with Dread Wilme
Kretik audio: http://www.lakounewyork.com/int%27wakdreadwilme.mp3
and http://www.lakounewyork.com/dreadwilmeentevyou.htm

L-NY: We have on the line with us Dread Wilme, a
Lavalas militant and activist in Site Solèy where
today there is a massive repression against the
population being carried out by United Nations
MINUSTHA forces along with the Haitian National
Police. Dread Wilme, can you tell the New York area
Haitian community through "Lakou New York" at Radio
Lakay how is the situation today in Site Solèy?

D. Wilme: Well, the situation is very serious not just
in Site Solèy but all over Haiti, in Site Solèy, in
Bèlè, in Lasalin, as well as Solino, Granravin and
elsewhere in all the 9 departments of the country. The
way things are in the country today, journalists are
being killed, school children are being killed,
business people are being killed. Many people who
would have been useful to the country are being
killed. As Lavalas militants throughout all the parts
of the country, all 9 departments and even in the 10th
department we are standing up to defend our rights, to
demand that President Aristide return to the country
and for us to live in peace because without President
Aristide there can be no peace. The government that is
here right now is doing only one thing: killing people
all over the country. The Haitian National Police has
forgotten that it was the people who called for the
army to be done with so we could have this Police. The
people and the Police are brothers and sisters. The
Police should not listen to the bourgeoisie and take
Andy Apaid and Charles Henri Baker's money to kill
people in Site Solèy. Many people have already been
killed, children, school kids and even people praying
inside churches have been shot. This is the climate we
are living under today in Site Solèy.

L-NY: Compatriot, we have learned that since
Thursday, after the news came out that Labanyè was
killed many many people are in tears because they no
longer have Labanyè to keep the people of Site Solèy
in check for them. Many people are saying that this is
the real reason why MINUSTHA is killing the people of
Site Solèy, to avenge Labanyè's death. What is your
view on this?

D. Wilme: The way we see it, it is these big shots who
used to pay Labanyè to shoot demonstrators in Site
Solèy where whenever we held demonstrations Labanyè
himself came out to shoot at the demonstrators. He was
doing the work of Andy Apaid and Charles Henri Baker.

You see, these big shots if they really had a vision,
a plan to help Site Solèy this is not the way they
would behave. Today, Site Solèy is living in filth.

Today the people of Site Solèy are living in dirt. The
people cannot eat. They are hungry. Children cannot go
to school. These people who were saying that they had
the support of Labanyè, they should know that Labanyè
did not represent the masses of the people. Labanyè
was nothing inside of Site Solèy. All alone, Labanyè
could not have taken all of Site Solèy hostage because
by himself he was weak. We have to be honest and admit
that by himself Labanyè could not have held the masses
of Site Solèy hostage. They have to admit that Labanyè
did not represent Site Solèy. Labanyè was just in one
of the neighborhoods of Site Solèy which is the
largest ghetto in Haiti. They have to face this fact.

Today we are facing severe repression by the National
Police and the MINUSTHA where they are saying that
this is because of Labanyè but our demonstrations have
only just begun. We are demanding the physical return
of President Aristide immediately. Today, Site Solèy
is whole. There is no longer 33 neighborhoods on one
side and 1 on another. All 34 neighborhoods are united
and we are demonstrating peacefully to demand the
physical return of President Aristide to Haiti. If the
bourgeoisie wanted to do something for the people of
Site Solèy, this is not the way they woud go about
doing it because they have never done anything to
benefit the people of Site Solèy. They want the people
to be their slaves. They want the people to go and
vote but to continue living in the same conditions we
are living in today. We have been living for 1 year
now under this defacto government which is destroying
the country. 95% of the people from the masses who
were working government jobs have been fired. Children
cannot go to school. Students cannot advance in their
studies. We are wondering just how far this crisis
will be allowed to go. All of this is why we are in
the streets, demonstrating and demanding the physical
return of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to Haiti
immediately. This is the only issue the people are
interested in today. Aristide is the one who can save
Haiti from all its woes.

L-NY: Dread Wilme, tell us what's been happening this
past weekend in Site Solèy. We understand that there
were major attacks which have taken place and we heard
that you were on the phone with a radio station in
Port-au-Prince where you said that the MINUSTHA was
shooting tear gas at the people. Tell us what's
happening inside Site Solèy today.

D. Wilme: MINUSTHA has been shooting tear gas on the
people. There are children who have died from the gas
and some people inside churches have been shot. The
Red Cross was with us. The Red Cross was just here and
might have just gone on to pick up more children and
adults who have gotten shot. The Red Cross is the only
one helping us. The MINUSTHA soldiers remain hidden in
their tanks and just aim their guns and shoot the
people. They shoot people selling in the streets. They
shoot people just walking in the streets. They shoot
people sitting and selling in the marketplace.
MINUSTHA must understand that the people in the
streets are the masses of the people. They say that
these people are "chimè" but they are not "chimè".

They are the masses of the people fighting for their
rights and demanding the return of President
Jean-Bertrand Aristide to Haiti. Inside Site Solèy
today we are facing a very serious climate of terror
where many people have been killed and many children
have been shot. We are asking for support because
President Aristide must come back for peace to reign
in Haiti.

L-NY: We know that there is a huge protest planned
for April 7th. This will be the first large protest
since Labanyè has been gone, will there be a large
turnout from Site Solèy to join with Bèlè and Kafou?
What we are hearing is that this demonstration will be
more like a tsunami rather than a lavalas.

D. Wilme: Well there is no doubt about that because
when the Lavalas is flowing there is nothing that can
hold us back. They know what Lavalas is all about.

Lavalas remains very powerful. All 34 neighborhoods of
Site Solèy will be mobilizing. It will be a huge
demonstration because everyone is planning to march on
the city. Site Solèy will move to join with Bèlè,
Granravin, Solino, Lasalin, etc., all the popular
neighborhoods so that all together the people will
take the streets on the 7th of April to demand with
one voice the immediate return of President Aristide
to Haiti.

L-NY: Dread Wilme, many people are not clear about
the exact relationship which exists between you, the
militants of Lavalas in Site Solèy, Lavalas in general
and Grenn Sonnen. Can you tell us the nature of this
relationship? Are both of you fighting for the same

D. Wilme: This is a very important question. The
relationship between us and Grenn Sonnen is a question
we will answer today. For our part, we are engaged in
a people's struggle where we are fighting for the
return of President Aristide in Haiti. Grenn Sonnen
used to work for the Lavalas Government. Right now he
claims to be fighting as a former FADH soldier to
defend the rights of the former soldiers. That is the
difference between us. We do not have any form of
contact with Grenn Sonnen. The former soldiers who are
involved with him in his fight believed that the
defacto government would be doing good things for the
country. Later, they realized that this is a criminal
government which is killing people left and right.

This government lied to them and is killing their
brother soldiers. Those former soldiers have now taken
up arms against this government and they are asking
for it to be removed from power. As Lavalas militants,
we are also demanding the departure of the defacto
government. We demand the physical return of President
Jean-Bertrand Aristide. We do not know whether they
are also for the President's return but us, the
Haitian people, the people of Site Solèy, Bèlè,
Granravin etc., all of the 10th department and all 9
departments of the country we are fighting for the
physical return of President Aristide to Haiti. I
cannot tell you anything about their ideology whether
they are for the return or not but for us our purpose
is clear.

L-NY: Do you have any last words for the Haitian
community listening to you over the internet and all
over the world over the internet?

D. Wilme:
My last words to the Haitian community of
New York and all over the 10th department is that they
must remain mobilized. We are asking all Haitians,
those who become U.S. citizens, those who were born
overseas, those who have been over there 13, 14, 15
years, we are asking all of them to remain mobilized,
to demonstrate peacefully wherever they are in the
10th department to demand the immediate physical
return of President Aristide. They must speak to
President Bush and as people of the United States
demand the return of President Aristide to Haiti. We
are sending our respects to all of you in the 10th
department who are standing firm in the struggle for
the immediate return of President Jean-Bertrand
Aristide to Haiti.

L-NY: Thank you very much compatriot.

D. Wilme: Thank you very much compatriot.

Lakou New York is a grassroots initiative to bring
alternative news, interviews, and news analysis to the
New York area Haitian community and beyond. We work to
give voice and to amplify the voices of those who have
always been marginalized. "Lakou New York" does not
claim to be an objective source of information. We
stand squarely on the side of the masses of the
Haitian people and the poor and marginalized all over
the world who as much as they are being oppressed
fight every day to create another world. We challenge
our community to assume their responsibility, which is
the challenge of the Haitian Revolution.

Kreyol original of Lakou New York Interview with Dread

Entèvyou "Lakou New York" ak Dread Wilme 4 Avril 2005

L-NY: Nou genyen nan liy nan ak nou Dread Wilme,
militant, aktivis ki nan Site Solèy k ap fè fas la
jodi a ak yon kokenn represyon bò kote MINUSTHA ak
Lapolis. Dread Wilme, èske ou ka pale ak kominote
Ayisyen nan New York atravè emisyon "Lakou New York"
ki nan Radio Lakay, di nou kouman sitiyasyon an ye
jodi a?

D. Wilme: Bon, sitiyasyon an pou jan l reprezante
kounye a anndan peyi d Ayiti, se pa sèlman nan Site
Solèy, li reprezante yon gwo klima pou peyi d Ayiti.

Site Solèy, Bèlè, Lasalin kankou Solino, Granravin,
elatriye ak tout 9 depatman an. Jan peyi a ye jounen
jodi a, jounalis ap tonbe. Elèv lekòl ap tonbe. Moun
ki gen biznis ap tonbe. Lè nou gade nou wè anpil moun
serye ki ka itil peyi a jodi a, se moun sa yo k ap
tonbe. Nou menm militan Lavalas anndan peyi d Ayiti,
nan 4 kwen peyi a, tout 9 depatman jiska dizyèm
depatman, nou wè jan peyi a tonbe la se peyi pa nou l
ye antan Ayisyen, nou revandike dwa nou kote n ap di
pou Prezidan Aristide retounen e pou kapab gen lapè
paske san Prezidan Aristide pa ka gen lapè paske
kounye a la gouvènman sa k la se moun l ap detwi
anndan peyi a. Polis Nasyonal la bliye si se Pèp la ki
te rele kraze lame a bay polis la. Noumenm ansanm ak
Polis la se frè ak sè. Fòk Polis la pa koute
laboujwazi pou l ap pran kòb nan men Andy Apaid ak
Charles Henri Baker pou vin detwi Pèp Site Solèy. Se
nan kontèks sa nou gen latriye moun ki gen tan mouri
deja, timoun ki gen tan mouri, elèv lekòl epi gen menm
moun ki anndan legliz ki pran bal nan Site Solèy.

Jounen jodi se konsa n ap sibi yon gwo klima anndan
Site Solèy.

L-NY: Konpatriyòt, nou aprann depi Jedi, apre nouvèl
la te soti ke Labanyè te tonbe genyen anpil anpil moun
k ap plenyen nan peyi a kòmkwa yo pa ta genyen Labanyè
pou asire Site a anfavè yo jodi a. Anpil moun di se
pou sa MNUSTHA ap fè represyon an, kidonk se yon
revanj k ap tire. Kijan noumenm nou wè koze a?
D. Wilme: Jan nou wè koze a, si genyen gwo bwa sa yo
ki te konn ap bay Labanyè kòb pou te tire sou
manifestasyon k ap fèt jounen jodi a tout sa k ap pase
atravè Site Solèy kote lè nou met manifestasyon deyò
se Labanyè ki parèt an pèsòn k al tire sou
manifestasyon yo. Li mache avèk Andy Apaid ak Charles
Henri Baker. Enben gran nèg sa yo si yo te gen yon
vizyon pou Site Solèy se pa konsa yo ta fè bagay la.

Site Solèy ap viv sou fatra jounen jodi a. Pèp Site
Solèy ap viv sou pousyè jounen jodi. Pèp la pa ka
manje. Pèp la grangou. Timoun pa ka al lekòl. Jounen
jodi anndan Site Solèy, nèg sa yo ki di yo te gen apui
Labanyè, enben Labanyè pa yon mas Pèp. Labanyè pa t
anyen anndan Site Solèy. Labanyè pa t ka rete pou l t
ap fè tout pil pou l te ka mete Pèp la an otaj paske
Labanyè pou kont li mezanmi li fèb. An nou pran
konsyans pou wè si sèl ti Labanyè te ka mete yon mas
Pèp konsa an otaj. Jounen jodi Pèp la revandike dwa l.

Se pou sa yo di ke MINUSTHA ansanm ak Polis Nasyonal
la ap tire revanj pou Labanyè. Fò yo rekonèt byen
Labanyè pa t reprezante Site Solèy. Labanyè se te nan
yonn nan katye nan Site Solèy yo l te ye paske Site
Solèy se pi gwo bidonvil ki gen nan peyi d Ayiti. Fòk
yo rekonèt sa byen. Jounen jodi nou wè n ap sibi gwo
represyon anba men Polis Nasyonal la avèk MINUSTHA
kote yo di se pou Labanyè, enben noumenm nou fenk kare
manifeste. N ap mande retou fizik Prezidan
Jean-Bertrand Aristide prese prese. Site Solèy la fè
yon sèl. Pa genyen 33 katye ankò paske nou tou l 34
katye yo nou tout fè yon sèl kote n ap manifeste
pasifikman n ap mande retou fizik Prezidan
Jean-Bertrand Aristide an Ayiti. Si laboujwazi te vle
fè yon bagay pou Pèp la se pa konsa yo ta fè l paske
yo pa p janm regle anyen pou Pèp Site Solèy. Yo ta
renmen bourike Pèp la, fè Pèp la al vote epi Pèp la ap
toujou viv nan menm konjonkti jounen jodi. Nou panse
genyen 1 an nou la ak yon gouvènman defakto k ap
debalize yon peyi. Kounye a 95% Pèp la revoke nan bwat
leta. Timoun pa ka al lekòl. Sa k te rive nan twazyèm
pa ka kontinye. Sa k te rive nan segonn nan reto pa ka
kontinye. N ap mande ki bò kriz sa prale. Se sa ki fè
Pèp la leve kanpe ap mande retou fizik Prezidan
Jean-Bertrand Aristide prese prese an Ayiti. Se sèl sa
ki enterese Pèp le se Aristide pou sove Ayiti nan tout
mizè l ye jounen jodi a.

L-NY: Dread Wilme, di nou sa k ap pase nan wikenn nan
la, paske yo fè konnen te genyen gwo atak ki fèt, yo
di ou te fè yon kout fil nan yon radyo nan Pòtoprens
la kote ou di MINUSTHA t ap bay gaz. Di nou sa k ap
pase anndan Site Solèy jounen jodi a.

D. Wilme: Jodi a anndan Site Solèy MINUSTHA t ap bay
gaz. Nou gen timoun ki mouri nan gaz epi nou gen divès
moun ki te anndan legliz ki pran katouch. Nou te fenk
gen Lakwa Wouj ki te ansanm ak nou la. Yo te fenk la a
yo gen lè fè yon vire ap ranmase timoun ki pran bal
ansanm ak granmoun ki pran bal. Se Lakwa Wouj k ap
pote nou sekou. MINUSTHA limenm kote l kache nan
chadegè a li pa bezwen konnen anyen paske se bourik
zam li ki nan lari. Li jwenn moun k ap vann li fizye
l. Li jwenn moun k ap pwonmennen li fizye l. Li jwenn
ti machann ki chita nan mache li fizye l. Jounen jodi
a fòk MINUSTHA rekonèt tout moun li wè nan lari se mas
Pèp la. Jan yo di gen chimè a pa gen chimè vre. Se Pèp
la k ap revandike dwa li k ap mande retou Prezidan
Aristide an Ayiti. Anndan Site Solèy kounye a la nou
gen yon gwo klima perèz kote nou gen anpil mou ki
mouri ak timoun ki pran bal. N ap mande pou yo kapab
pote nou sekou paske fòk Prezidan Aristide tounen pou
kapab gen lapè an Ayiti.

L-NY: Nou konnen gen yon kokenn manifestasyon ki
anonse pou 7 Avril. Fwa sa a, se premye fwa Labanyè pa
la, èske Site a ap soti an mas pou rejwenn ak Bèlè, ak
Kafou pou se yon kokenn leve kanpe paske nou tande fwa
sa a se pa lavalas men se yon sounami k pral desann la

D. Wilme:
Ebyen ou konnen se kanmenm paske lavalas la
lè l desann an mas pa gen sa ki ka sipòte l paske yo
konn ki ès ki lavalas la. Lavalas la toujou rete
puisan. 34 katye Site Solèy yo pral mobilize la a. Se
yon gwo kokenn chenn manifestasyon k pral genyen 7
Avril la paske tout moun la pou pran vil la. Site
Solèy pral pran vil la pou l rankontre ak Bèlè,
Granravin, Solino, Lasalin elatriye, tout zòn popilè
yo kote 7 la tout Pèp la deside l pou l pran lari pou
n mande retou fizik Prezidan Jean-Bertrand Aristide an
Ayiti prese prese.

L-NY: Dread Wilme, genyen anpil moun ki pa klè sou
relasyon ekzakt ki ta genyen jounen jodi a ant oumenm
nan Site Solèy la, Lavalas, ak Grenn Sonnen. Eske ou
kapab di nou ki sa relasyon sa a ye jodi a? Eske n ap
batay pou menm bagay?

D. Wilme: Kesyon sa a se yon kesyon ki trè enpòtan. Se
yon kesyon m ap reponn jounen jodi. Kesyon Grenn
Sonnen an avèk noumenm anndan Site Solèy. Noumenm n ap
fè yon lit Pèp kote n ap mande retou fizik Prezidan
Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Grenn Sonnen t ap travay nan
Gouvènman Lavalas. Aktyèlman li reklame tèt li etan ke
militè. L ap revandike dwa militè yo. Ka sa a
diferansye. Noumenm nou pa gen kontak ak Grenn Sonnen.
Militè ki ansanm avèk li yo se militè ki te panse
gouvènman defakto sa a t ap fè yon bon bagay nan peyi
a. Lè yo vin wè gouvènman defakto sa a se moun l ap
touye agoch adwat. Gouvènman sa a ba yo manti.

Gouvènman sa a ap detwi pwòp san frè yo. Enbyen yo
menm ansyen militè yo, yo leve kont rejim defakto sa a
kote y ap mande depa rejim defakto sa a. Noumenm
militan Lavalas, Pèp Ayisyen noumenm kote n ap mande
depa rejim defakto sa a. N ap mande retou fizik
Prezidan Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Nou pa konn pa yo a
si se retou Prezidan an men noumenm pa nou an, Pèp
Ayisyen, Pèp Site Solèy, Pèp Bèlè, Granravin,
elatriye, tout dizyèm depatman an, tout 9 depatman an
noumenm se pou retou fizik Prezidan Aristide n ap
travay. Ideyoloji pa yo a m pa ka ba ou yon ide de sa
si se pou retou oswa pa pou retou men noumenm se pou
retou n ap travay.

L-NY: Eske ou genyen yon dènye mo pou kominote
Ayisyèn nan k ap koute ou la nan New York epi k ap
koute nan entènèt tout kote?

D. Wilme: Dènye mo m gen pou kominote Ayisyèn nan k ap
koute m tout kote nan New York, nan dizyèm depatman an
n ap di yo mobilize. Ni Ayisyen ki natiralize pou
Ameriken, tout sa ki sitizenn, ni sa ki fèt laba a, ni
sa ki gen 13 an, 14 an, 15 an laba a, n ap mande yo
pou yo rete mobilize, pou yo fè manifestasyon
pasifikman nan dizyèm nan. Pou yo pale ak Prezidan
Bush, pou yo mande l nou se pitit Ameriken etan ke
Amerik, n ap mande retou fizik Prezidan Jean-Bertrand
Aristide an Ayiti. Noumenm an Ayiti tou nou voye yon
gwo respè pou yo dizyèm nan ki kenbe mouvman an solid
solid pou retou fizik Prezidan Jean-Bertrand Aristide
an Ayiti prese prese.

L-NY: Mèsi anpil konpatriyòt.

D. Wilme: Mèsi anpil konpatriyòt mwen.

"Lakou New York" se yon inisyativ Ayisyen k ap viv nan
lakou New York nan peyi blan Meriken pou n mache
chache, fouye, ranmase epi pote yon lòt kalite
enfòmasyon pou pèp Ayisyen an. Nou pote enfòmasyon sou
sa k ap pase atravè lemonn antye, koze lakou a epi
koze peyi D Ayiti ak analiz ki pa sanble ak sa y ap
jwenn lòt kote. Nou demele nou pou n mete mikro nan
bouch moun lòt medya mal pou bay lapawòl. "Lakou New
York" pa jennen di kareman n ap fè yon travay patizan.
Nou kanpe bò kote mas pèp Ayisyen ak tout malere
atravè lemonn antye pi gwo ap kraze men ki ap mennen
yon batay pwennfèpa mò rèd pou yon lòt jou ka jou. N
ap travay pou n mennen pèp Ayisyen nan kalfou kote l
ap rive ranmase epi pote kòmsadwa eritaj zansèt nou yo
mouri kite pou nou an.
