(in English) 2009: Ezili Dantò with Chris Scott- CKUT Interview on Haiti Riches http://bit.ly/r6Iei

 

This interview – http://bit.ly/r6Iei – was done before UN poisoned the Artibonite river with cholera. I asked here in terms of mining, what happens if mining chemicals poison the Artibonite river. Very uncanny as the invaders found another way to poison Haiti waters in order to privatize Haiti waters much sooner and with greater market effectiveness. Killing Haitians with cholera provides the NGO and Paul Farmer/Jim Wong Kim ilks with 1) more opportunity to raise funds they will launder back to themselves but call “Haiti aid” 2). Less Haitians helps bring demand down and balance their capital markets and 3) provides the Northern hoarders with the opportunity to privatize all sources of Haiti water under the pretext of cleaning Haiti water for the public’s good health!!!

Ezili Dantò’s Note:

US to re-write Haiti Constitution, Again (with change in mining laws ) |

Using cholera pain to stealthy privatized all sources of Haiti water

 

Haitians require an end to the US occupation of Haiti, a stop to the mining

companies and the NGO republic.

 

If the Haiti government was sovereign and free from US bullying neoliberal

World Bank/IFIs policies; if Haiti oil/gold resources were not privatized but

used for Haiti’s public welfare, there would be no need for food-aid in Haiti.

 

If the Haitian government would be allowed by Paul Farmer’s partner at the

World Bank, President Jim Won Kim to invest in its own health care, its own

people’s education, water management and to protect its local economy from

unbalanced US trade with protective Haiti tariffs, there would be no need for

NGOs in Haiti. There would be no need for a Paul Farmer hospital in

Mirebalais Haiti not accountable to the Haitian public; no need for food-aid,

no need for the NGO pèpè schools/orphanages. If the Wall Street oligarchs are

denied their sociopathic sense of entitlement to Haiti natural resources,

there would be no need for food-aid in Haiti. If Paul Farmer’s partner at the

World Bank, Obama and Clinton would end the endless debts imposed on Haiti for

useless aid, there would be no need for US-food aid reform to help Haiti.

 

But if there is US-food aid reform (ie. US passage of the Royce-Engel

amendment in the Farm Bill) to allow use of US aid to purchase local Haiti

farmer crops, this should be in conjunction with World Bank/IMF reforms to

allow Haiti to invest in its own local economy, its own local agriculture and

said US reform must also nix the Monsanto Protection Act and forbid Monsanto

hybrid seeds and GMOs in Haiti. How much sense does it make to empower NGOs to

provide local agricultural aid in Haiti while keeping the Haiti government

weak and unable to respond to its farmer constituents?

 

There’s a new move by the discredited Haiti rescuers led today by Obama/

Clinton/UN to refocus their fundraising away from “earthquake reconstruction

relief” now to “cholera relief,” or to “local agriculture relief,” and “mining

protection for Haitians relief!” It’s a slightly repackaged imperial economic

pillage but the same old arsonist/fireman modus operandi. Same failures

intended to enrich the North, impoverish Haiti (See http://bit.ly/VGXbOQ – UN

Capitalizing on Cholera: playing arsonist and fireman)

 

Haiti must not allow the poverty pimping NGOs to substitute their “give for

earthquake relief” to the newest refrain “give for Haiti local agriculture.”

It’s all a scam to pad their coffers. Period, no comma.

 

The NGOs carry out US imperial policies in Haiti in exchange for “charity

funding” – which means, they money launder US tax payer dollars and put it in

their pockets. US imperial policies is about destroying Haiti manufacturing

and local economy, expropriating Haiti natural resources and making a larger

Haiti market for their subsidized Wall Street monopolies.

 

STOP this economic brutality. STOP the NGOs. STOP the unbalance trade in Haiti

with US. STOP the WB/IDB endless debts. STOP the privatization of Haiti

natural resources. STOP the current stealth campaign to privatize Haiti water.

STOP the US occupation of Haiti behind UN guns.

 

ARTICLE 36-5 of the Haitian Constitution, states:

“The right to own property does not extend to the coasts, springs, rivers,

water courses, mines and quarries. They are part of the State’s public domain.

 

So, how is it legally possible for the US to re-write Haiti mining laws? To

legally change the Haiti constitution on ownership of Haiti resources at

mines, coasts, springs, rivers, water courses and quarries? Who will stop this

US occupation forces’ re-writing of the Haiti Constitution to benefit US

resource extraction companies and for privatization of Haiti’s water? Ayisyen

kote nou yes? (See World Bank says its helping Haiti draft mining legislation

http://bit.ly/187mkea )

 

Se mèt ki pou veye kò.

Occupied Haiti runs thus- “Recently, there was a government press conference.

There was nothing ‘government’ about it; we organized it and told them what to

say.” explains the spokesman for one of the largest UN organizations in the

Haiti. (Full article at The NGO Republic of Haiti http://bit.ly/U2FZIK ).

 

Haiti’s current law doesn’t allow drilling without a signed mining convention.

But US Newmont mining got a “waiver” to the current Haiti law without the

approval of even the puppet Haiti legislature. Martelly signed it in violation

of Haiti Constitution.

The US companies were offered a friendly public-private partnership by the

Aristide government to exploit Haiti oil, gold and other strategic resources.

That idea of equitably sharing with Haiti people access to Haiti resources

INSULTED the northern monopolies so much, they hired and trained death squads

in the Dominican Republic from former Haiti army officials to take down that

elected government. And when the hired jackals and US mercenaries, including

Guy Phillip/Louis Jodel Chamblain paramilitaries, could not do the US regime

change themselves, US special forces along with Canada and French troops

landed in Haiti on Feb. 29, 2004 and through extraordinary rendition put

President Aristide and the first lady on a plane to Africa. This merciless and

shocking malevolence was followed by a brutal 3-months US Marines sweep of

Site Solèy and other dissenting areas and then covered up with US MINUSTAH’s

permanent war in Haiti behind NGO imperialism.

 

Between 2004 to 2006 the US occupation behind UN guns slaughtered 14 to

20thousand Haitians. If it wasn’t for organizations like Ezili’s HLLN the Wall

Street assassination squads in Haiti might have slaughtered more in the same

manner the CIA orchestrated paramilitary death squads in Guatemala got to

slaughter 200,000 Guatemalans on behalf of US United Fruit companies. In Haiti

with former UN employee Gerald Latortue illegally imposed as Prime Minister,

the oligarchs urged Brazil commanders to kill more poor Haitians so that Haiti

oil and gold can now freely be carted off to service the Northern vampires as

Haiti majority die of Clorox hunger, UN cholera, unfair trade, endless death

and WB neoliberal death plans. (The Pain Rush in Haiti : Clorox Hunger lives

in the same space that billions of dollars in “aid” are supposed to have being

poured http://bit.ly/17Duopu )

 

Today, the US is re-writing Haiti mining laws for its corporations.

 

But, Article 36-5 of the Haitian Constitution, states:

“The right to own property does not extend to the coasts, springs, rivers,

water courses, mines and quarries. They are part of the State’s public domain.

 

So, how is it legally possible for the US to re-write Haiti mining laws? To

legally change the Haiti constitution on ownership of Haiti resources at

mines, coasts, springs, rivers, water courses and quarries? Who will stop this

US occupation forces’ re-writing of the Haiti Constitution to benefit US

resource extraction companies and for privatization of Haiti’s water? Ayisyen

kote nou yes? (See World Bank says its helping Haiti draft mining legislation

http://bit.ly/187mkea )

 

Se mèt ki pou veye kò.

Occupied Haiti runs thus – “recently, there was a government press conference.

There was nothing ‘government’ about it; we organized it and told them what to

say.” explains the spokesman for one of the largest UN organizations in the

Haiti. (Full article at The NGO Republic of Haiti http://bit.ly/U2FZIK ).

 

The global North’s sociopathic sense of entitlement knows no bounds, no law,

no morality, no ethics. So the US destroys Haiti farmers, Haiti manufacturing,

Haiti water system, Haiti politics, Haiti spirituality in order to reshape in

the the US to privatize it and called it their own.

 

With respect to this sudden US “caring” via coup detat NGO Oxfam for Haiti

mining protection. This false benevolence is a way to do the mode/soufle.

While the US is destroying the provisions in the Haiti Constitution protecting

Haiti from foreign mining companies, Oxfam is sent forth to do PR for

America’s commitment to protect Haiti poor. ([ezilidanto] NGO false

benevolence manufactures consent for the US occupation in Haiti: OXFAM howling

a wolf’s care for the sheep http://bit.ly/11EPL1A )

 

But keep your eye on the ball Haitians and true friends of Haiti. For they

must especially ERADICATE these protective local Haiti laws that gives the

local existing Haiti inhabitants the right to exploit the mines or to

participate in mining exploitation BEFORE the government offers that

opportunity to outsiders:

 

ARTICLE 39 of the Haitian Constitution, states that the “inhabitants of the

Communal Sections have the right of preemption for the exploitation of the

State’s land in the private domain located in their locality.”

 

ARTICLE 36-6 of the Haitian Constitution, states that “law shall establish

regulations governing freedom to prospect for and work mines, or bearing

earths, and quarries, ensuring an equal share of the profits of such

exploitation to the owner of the land and to the Haitian State or its

concessionnaires.”

 

ARTICLE 36-5 of the Haitian Constitution, states:

“The right to own property does not extend to the coasts, springs, rivers,

water courses, mines and quarries. They are part of the State’s public domain.

 

So, how is it legally possible for the US to re-write Haiti mining laws? To

legally change the Haiti constitution on ownership of Haiti resources at

mines, coasts, springs, rivers, water courses and quarries? Who will stop this

US occupation forces’ re-writing of the Haiti Constitution to benefit US

resource extraction companies and for privatization of Haiti’s water? Ayisyen

kote nou yes? (See World Bank says its helping Haiti draft mining legislation

Se mèt ki pou veye kò.

For those foreign charity workers reconciling with injustice like Farmer’s

Partner and Death, for the Haitian technocrats and diaspora collaborators

pretending amnesia, proclaiming ignorance or innocence, occupied Haiti runs

thus- “recently, there was a government press conference. There was nothing

‘government’ about it; we organized it and told them what to say.” explains

the spokesman for one of the largest UN organizations in the Haiti. (Full

article at The NGO Republic of Haiti http://bit.ly/U2FZIK ).
