Unfree election in Haiti

The Kidnapping Coup from Vic Sadot on Vimeo.

This video says about itself:

The Kidnapping Coup tells the story of the US Bush-Cheney regime’s overthrow of democracy in Haiti on Feb 29, 2004. A so-called “rebel army” was funded and equipped by the US in neighboring Santo Domingo. They “invaded” and shot a lot of people in several few towns. Simultaneously the US invaded Haiti by air and sea and took the capital city of Port-au-Prince.

US marines broke into the Haitian Presidential Palace in the middle of the night. They kidnapped President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his wife Mildred, put them on a US jet, and flew them all the way to the Central Republic of Africa, where they were put under house arrest by a French puppet dictator. Members of the Black Congressional Caucus flew there and demanded the release of Aristide and his wife. They flew to Jamaica, but Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell made threats on sovereign Jamaica. The Aristide family is now in exile in the Republic of South Africa, and Haiti remains under military occupation by the complicit forces of the United Nations.

Two right-wing candidates, both with links to the former Duvalier dictatorship, are competing in Haiti‘s US-orchestrated presidential vote: here.

Prominent lawyers and law professors today wrote to Cheryl Mills, U.S. Department of State Chief of Staff, criticizing United States Government interference with former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s constitutional and human right to return from forced exile to Haiti. President Aristide is expected to leave South Africa for Haiti on Thursday, March 17. On Monday, Department of State spokesperson Mark Toner urged the South African government to prevent the plane’s departure before Haiti’s upcoming elections: here.
