Haitians to U.S./Canada/Europe/OAS/UN:
“You kidnapped our real leaders and installed your puppets!”
“End Apartheid in Haiti!”
“The foreign occupation and its puppets have failed: return Haiti to Haitians!”
“We thirst for water, your brought us Cholera!”
Ottawa July 9, 2018
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,
Once again, we call your attention to the persistent message a group of Haitians and Canadians have been bringing so consistently and tirelessly to your office, over the past decades: We must fix Canadian policy towards Haiti.
On Monday July 9, 2018, over lunch time on Parliament Hill, we will reiterate our support for our Haitian brothers and sisters who stand for their right to be ruled by a real Haitian government, of their own choosing. This entails an immediate end to the ongoing 14 year-long disastrous foreign occupation of Haiti which was established by the 2004 coup and maintained under disguise, ever since.
The unnecessary suffering of our Haitian brothers and sisters haunt us day and night. Can you hear the faint voices of half-naked children, reproaching us: “We thirst for water, you brought us Cholera”?
Concerning the most recent upheavals, Haitians have been crying out to the world, looking specifically towards the U.S.-led Core Group of foreign decision-makers: “You kidnapped our real leaders and installed your puppets!”.
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, we echo the Haitian People’s heart-wrenching cry for freedom and dignity as we reiterate the messages we had delivered two years earlier on Parliament Hill:
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau, we count on you to show that, under your leadership, Canadian foreign policy is truly 2018-ready and aligned with core Canadian values of justice and equity. Let it not be in vain that our nation has recently embraced the International Decade of Peoples of African Descent. Our Canada must unequivocally stand against socio-economic Apartheid in Haiti. Haitians have always rejected repressive White-minority political rule through puppet Black proxies. In their noble struggle, they deserve nothing less than our full and honest support.
