Urgent: Help Prevent Further Massacres in Haiti!

Subject: Urgent: Help Prevent Further Massacres in Haiti !

The poor majority loyal to President Aristide along with political activists and supporters of the Lavalas justice movement in Haiti have faced unremitting repression since the February 29, 2004 coup d'etat. This repression and violence has gone unexposed by the mainstream media and the poor are still the target of senseless UN repression in order to preserve the illegal US-backed government imposed on Haiti. The UN has indeed been threatening the people of Site Soley with plans for a second major military incursion guranteed to far exceed the July 6, 2005 civilian casualties. ( http://haitiaction.net/News/KP/8_18_5/8_18_5.html )

It is disheartening to see soldiers marching under the U.N. flag acting as proxies for Bush’s racist war on the Haitian poor. The Haitian people have been the victims of a destabilization campaign, which robbed them of their democratically elected government and constitution. The U.S. was the principle architect of this campaign, but is unable to re-stabilize the situation. The U.N. has been placed in the position where they are asked to do this task, but in reality it is not a task of peacekeeping, but rather one of pacification, attempting to impose a government which has no popular support. The results are predictable: UN troops involved in human rights abuses, even massacres.

I write to ask that your paper, in your official capacity as a news outlet, charged with informing the public truthfully, cover the Bush debacle publicly without the obfuscations, lies and racists spins which continually fail to show the Haitian peoples valiant struggles against imperialism and its support for dictatorship in Haiti through the years while twice destroying Haiti's duly elected government. It is past time the people of the world were given more than prejudiced US State Department bulletins on the story of U.S. culpability in destroying authentic electoral democracy in Haiti, supporting arbitrary imprisonments (Prime Minister Yvon Neptune, folk singer and activists So Ann, Father Jean Juste, et al) and bringing to the poor in Haiti an unprecedented reign of terror through the return of the Haitian army, release of known human rights abuses, such as Louis Jodel Chamblain, reversing convictions in the Raboteau massacres and the repression brought on through USAID's deliberate pacification programs to subvert freedom of expression and the exercise of civil liberty.

I urge your paper to cover Haiti and tell the truth. If US citizen were told the truth about Haiti, they would not support the unremitting violence, racism, US despotism and the repressive UN operations that allow for the killing of sleeping children in their own homes and the large scale military attacks on the poor forcing them to legitimize the coup d'etat by voting for candidates chosen by foreign powers while their leaders are dead, in jail or in exile.

Haiti: UN peacekeepers mount new anti-gang operation in capital

Continuing their anti-gang operations in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, United Nations peacekeepers launched another raid in the Cité Militaire area yesterday after intense firing during the night sowed panic among residents.

During the raid, troops of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) detained some 50 suspects, 40 of whom were later released, and seized a M16 sub-machinegun, two pistols and 2,000 cartridges. Two people were wounded.

The area was later reported calm but the UN troops remained there.

Earlier this week, 200 UN peacekeepers waged an eight-hour gun battle with heavily armed men who attacked them in Cité Militaire, killing four of the assailants.

MINUSTAH was set up by the Security Council last year to help to re-establish peace in the impoverished Caribbean country after an insurgency forced elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to go into exile in February 2004.

An Important Businessman Was Arrested in Relation to Kidnapping Cases recorded in Port-au-Prince
Tuesday August 23, 2005
Radio Kiskeya

Tuesday in Port-au-Prince, the police arrested an important Arab/Haitian businessman, Stanley Handal, based on his involvement in kidnapping cases that have plagued Port-au-Prince these last few months.

Mr. Handal, who also does business with the police, was apprehended as part of the investigation in the disappearance of a (31 years old) UNIBANK employee, Nathael Aleus Genelus, which occurred this past August 2, subsequent to his questioning at the police precinct of Delma 62. The police inspector responsible for this precinct, James Bourdeau, is being actively sought for his role in Mr. Genelus’ assumed kidnapping.

According to police sources, the investigation in the disappearance of UNIBANK’s employee allowed police to uncover the existence of a huge and powerful network of crooks, linked with drug money laundering, kidnappings, and many other shady activities.
The Businessman Stanley Handal and the bank employee Genelus were apparently part of this network. Sources contacted by radio Kiskeya pointed out that it took the deployment of an important police contingent in order to apprehend Stanley Handal. The UN civilian police (CIVPOL) were part of the operations as well.

No further details were given about the bank employee’s fate, as well as police inspector James Bourdeau’s.

Subsequent to a slowdown period, kidnapping cases are slowly returning, spreading to previously unaffected parts of Port-au-Prince.
A Canadian, a Haitian residing in the US as well as a high level cadre of the Taxation General Management were killed within a week.

Arrestation d’un important homme d’affaires en relation avec les cas de kidnapping enregistrés à Port-au-Prince
Posté le mardi 23 août 2005
Par Radio Kiskeya


La police a procédé mardi à Port-au-Prince à l’arrestation d’un important homme d’affaires haïtien d’origine arabe, M. Stanley Handal, en relation avec la série d’actes de kidnapping enregistrés à Port-au-Prince ces derniers mois.

M. Handal, qui est aussi un fournisseur de la police, a été appréhendé dans le cadre de l’enquête ouverte autour de la disparition d’un employé de la UNIBANK, Nathael Aléus Génélus (31 ans) depuis le 2 août dernier après une interpellation dont il a été l’objet au sous commissariat de police de Delmas 62. L’inspecteur de police responsable de ce sous-commissariat, James Bourdeau, est encore activement recherché pour implication présumée dans l’enlèvement de M. Génélus.

Selon des sources policières, l’enquête autour de la disparition de l’employé de la UNIBANK aurait permis à la police de découvrir l’existence d’un vaste et puissant réseau de malfaiteurs impliqués dans le blanchiment d’argent de la drogue, les actes de kidnapping et d’autres activités louches.

L’homme d’affaires Stanley Handal et l’employé de banque Génélus, feraient partie du réseau. Il aurait fallu le déploiement d’importantes forces de police pour l’appréhender, indiquent les sources contactées par Kiskeya. La police civile de l’ONU (CIVPOL) a également participé à l’opération.

Aucune précision n’a pu être obtenue sur le sort de l’employé de banque, de même que sur celui de l’inspecteur de police James Bourdeau.

Après une période d’accalmie, une certaine recrudescence des actes de kidnapping est constatée à Port-au-Prince avec une tendance à l’extension du phénomène à d’autres quartiers jusqu’ici épargnés.

Un canadien, un haïtien résidant aux Etats-Unis et un haut cadre de la Direction Générale des Impôts ont été tués en moins d’une semaine à Port-au-Prince.
