For three years, Washington, Paris and Ottawa, working with Haiti’s ruling elite, former soldiers and death-squads, carried out a destabilization campaign culminating in the February 29, 2004 kidnapping and overthrow of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

To quell resistance to the coup, armies from the U.S.,France, Canada and the United Nations have occupied Haiti and carried out or aided massacres of hundreds of Haitian citizens, including women, children and infants.

It is time that the criminals be judged.

Testimony and evidence of these crimes will be presented at the second session of the International Tribunal on Haiti. The tribunal, which held its first session in Washington, DC on September 23, will prepare a case to be submitted to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. A Commission of Inquiry headed by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark traveled to Haiti from October 6 - 11 and will bring its findings.

Come witness history in the making.

Victims and witnesses of violence before, during or after the February 29 coup are encouraged to contact the Tribunal.

Contributions for the Tribunal are urgently needed and tax-deductible. Call (718-434-8100 or visit www.nicanet.org/donate_afgj.htm and indicate "Int'l Tribunal on Haiti"

Again, most of you will probably believe this load of fertilizer. Probably, none of you have been to Haiti, as I have, and probably none of you ever will. Haiti is a beautiful and wonderful country and the only thing that has kept it from turning into a complete hole is the United States and the world community. There was no rapes. There was no murders. There was no abuse.
BUT I'm sure a few ignorant people here will jump on the band wagon and whine about something that they know nothing about. Have at it kids!
It's about time

This kind of attention to the tragedy of Haiti is overdue in the USA, from where the impunity for the killers originates.
Is AFAB (Boston Haitian Women's Assoc) involved with this tribunal, or is it just another Workers World Party vehicle?

Again, you ask how to support prior to gathering all the facts. For anyone that gets the chance, tavel to Haiti and visit the towns and villages. A great place full of great people who need help.

But did the coup the US supported there last spring help?

Speaking from the stand point of being related to people who have been to Haiti....the country is a mess. Always has been and probably always will be. The only times that they have enjoyed peace is when we are down there (again) assiting them with trying to get back on their feet.

If we can assist a struggling nation that is a stones throw from our shores, shouldn't we?
Show of hands. Who here has actually been there and speak from first hand knowledge? I have!
That country needs help and it really does not matter were it comes from.
