Ezili Dantò’s Note: Another Day Under Occupation – US Legalized slavery in Haiti

I’ve written this same essay practically since the US occupation began in 2004. Each year of their occupation, life gets more unendurable for the majority black nation. But each year more and more whites flock in to live behind gated communities they’ve erected in Haiti. The more Haitians die, the more the foreigners profit, accumulate greater power and glory as “humanitarians.”

“Every Jan. 1st marks Haiti’s freedom day.

Oceans of our blood have poured and watered the soil to nourish civilized co- existence on this planet Earth and continue, this very minute, to soak the earth needlessly, simply because Haitians were the first to counter, in combat, European/U.S. biological fatalism, destroy their myth of white superiority and to do what even Spartacus could not.

How should Haitians mark this anniversary?

Who should we confer with about our awesome burden, our plight, our long struggle to be treated as human beings by the European “discoverers” and settlers? About the U.N. soldiers’ massacres, about the US occupation of Haiti behind the UN front, about the US/Euro open-pit mining for Haiti’s $20 billion in gold in the time of UN-imported cholera; about the savage disenfranchisement of the impoverished with US-supported sham elections since 2004, about their feudal pillage masked as humanitarian aid in Haiti, about $9 billion in earthquake dollars collected that’s been put in foreign pockets leaving practically no footprint in Haiti, about the use of Haiti misery by the US/UN/NGOs to cash in, about the arsonist and firemen role played by the fake humanitarians, about the rapes of our women, importation of cholera that’s killed 8000+ and infected 750,000+ innocent Haitians in three years and the repression of Haiti’s defenseless poor? About the lies of the mainstream media and awful propaganda for empire by the likes of Bill Clinton and Dr. Paul Farmer?

Who should we confer with about this insane Western force that attacks all that is not like itself, even though it had no attackers? About Bartholomew De La Casas’ “New World,” enmeshed in its own armor of materiality, caged in centuries of self-serving lies that defends itself endlessly from the planet’s masses, bringing genocide it veils in false declarations of benevolence?…

In the book “Two Thousand Seasons,” Ayi Kwei Armah writes: “How have we come to be mere mirrors to annihilations? For whom do we aspire to reflect our people’s death? For whose entertainment shall we sing our agony? In what hopes? That the destroyers, aspiring to extinguish us, will suffer conciliatory remorse at the sight of their own fantastic success? The last imbecile to dream such dreams is dead, killed by the saviors of his dreams.”

It is an exercise in futility to go to the perpetrators and executioners of human rights crimes in Haiti in hopes of getting justice for our people.

Those who ousted the constitutional government of Haiti in 2004 – the U.N., which acts as proxy to maintain this international crime, the Haitian lackeys and their Bill Clinton, Paul Farmer and State Department masters – are dead inside and cannot hear the cries of the Haitian masses.

It’s not their mission or mandate. For they don’t represent life, liberty, democracy, development and decency, but its opposite. This officialdom, this authority, rains death, despotism, destruction, cruelty, inhumanity, injustice, and represents all that civilized peoples worldwide struggle to overcome. They write laws but are too “high tech” to live them. They mouth words of “justice” and fairness but their words are DEAD.

To further quote Ghanaian writer, Ayi Kwei Armah: “Those utterly dead, never again to awake, such is their muttering.”— Ezili Dantò?, Jan 1, 2013: Another Independence Day Under Occupation, http://bit.ly/ZMhPVS
