Earthquake victims relief not a US priority. US repairing prisons at Krome for potential Haitian earthquake refugees

Haiti needs: Conscious Disaster relief with human rights and dignity http://www.margueritelaurent.com/law/nochange.html#dignity

Please pass on that message to the white house. All your representatives. Help the earthquake victims.

Object to the US occupation and militarization of Haiti on the backs of perhaps up to 200,000 dead Haitians and 3million suffering Haitians. This is ATROCIOUS. repugnant. odious. This is not emergency relief but opportunistic disaster capitalism – purposely, diabolically letting the poor die so to make Haiti a pristine tourist haven for foreigners as was done elsewhere after the tsunami… Stop the shock doctrine in Haiti. Please.

As HLLN indicated at outset – This is a tragedy of EPIC proportions and Haiti needs Conscious relief with dignity and human rights. If we are to rule ourselves, alter the old imperialistic profit-over-people paradigm that contains Haiti in poverty, this is the time for US government to let first responders from all around the world IN to treat the people. Stop blocking aid, please. There are 100 Haitian doctors in New York trying to get into Haiti unsuccessfull and another 200 doctors we are told in DC trying to fly in with CRITICALLY needed medical supplies and expertise.

US, Obama, please stop blocking emergency aid and relied to Haiti and also support the Haitian-led relief effort from the US and help us with logistic, supplies and getting our first responders on the ground. We are not trying to uphold USAID and the old ways of NGOS and Haitian oligarchy but the Haitian people, the Haitian government, Haitian dignity. Please everyone help us in this. In the name of the earthquake victims, in the name of true solidarity, in the name of the Ancestors who fought for Haiti’s independence help us to stop the occupation of Haiti, stop US from making SECURITY to issue. Denying medical aid. blocking first responders from entering and preparing Krome Jail in Miami for any Haitians who escape their aid in Haiti.

Tell CNN to stop hyping fears of violence in Haiti. For shame. http://bit.ly/6bXnPz

Tell US that the earthquake victims need food, water, shelter, medical care. Not 12,000 guns in their wounded faces and CNN and Fox news and MSNBC tallking, talking about the POTENTIAL for violence, POTENTIAL for riots. They are orchestrating that POTENTIAL which is unfounded and pushing the people to mass desperation – depriving them of water, food, medical care by actually blocking field hospitals from landing, blocking aid workers from landing. This is unendurable. Shameful and CRIMINAL. (US Military Tightens Grip On Haiti http://bit.ly/7LMqL4)

Nursing home administrator Jean Emmanuel told AP “I’m pleading, streets are free, so you can come through to help us.”

12,000 US troops. Starving, traumatized earthquake victims. no aid!

There’s no mass violence in Haiti yet US priorities are security. People need food, water, medicine. US is not in sync with this.

At Nursing Home, barely one mile from US-controlled airport, 85 elderly Haitians are starving, being attacked by rats. Joseph Julien died.

US officials cite fights over food at nearby soccer stadium to justify not sending the nursing home critical supplies, despite proximity to the airport.

Elderly in a nursing home less than mile from US headquarters at airport DYING of hunger. But US says afraid of food fight at soccer field!

Nursing home administrator Jean Emmanuel told AP “I’m pleading, streets are free, so you can come through to help us.”

US officials have made clear that treating Haitian victims of the earthquake is not a US priority…US officials are preparing prisons for potential Haitian earthquake refugees. Homeland Security (DHS) announced it would move 400 detainees from Krome detention facility to an undisclosed location to free up space in case any Haitians manage to reach US shores. http://bit.ly/7LMqL4

As death toll mounts (up to 200,000), an unspoken but unanimous agreement in the international media that it is legitimate for the US military to dictate how operations will proceed.

US officials have made clear that treating Haitian victims of the earthquake is not a US priority, security is! The rescue efforts in Haiti are held hostage by a US national security establishment.

Humanitarian flights from France, Brazil, and Italy were refused permission to land and the Red Cross reported one of its planes was diverted to Santo Domingo, the capital of the neighboring Dominican Republic. US occupation of Haiti NOT taken opportunities available to it to treat wounded Haitians.

Tell CNN to stop hyping fears of violence in Haiti. For shame. http://bit.ly/6bXnPz

The US military intervention in Haiti is criminal in both form and content. Disguised as a humanitarian rescue operation, its main aim is to build up the necessary firepower to terrorize the masses into accepting a shocking lack of treatment without protest. Even taken on its own terms, the US occupation of Haiti has not taken the opportunities available to it to treat wounded Haitians. (See, US Military Tightens Grip On Haiti http://bit.ly/7LMqL4)
