Imperialism, which has sunk Haiti into the most absolute misery, is shedding crocodile tears and is speaking of the ‘Biblical curse’ that is ‘punishing’ the Haitian people for the ‘sin’ of having led in the first great social revolution in the Caribbean and having created the first free Republic in the Caribbean. These poor people, full of dignity, from the beginning of the earthquake have taken up the fight for survival and mutual aid. This is the way the Canadian writer of Haitian origin, Dany Laferrière, describes it who visited Port-au-Prince at the time of the earthquake (read his testimony at http://www.lemonde.fr/ameriques/article/2010/01/16/haiti-le-temoignage-bouleversant-de-l-ecrivain-dany-laferriere_1292475_3222.html.)
But Haiti is the homeland of great revolutionaries: Rosalvo Bobo, the leader of the first anti-imperialist insurrection in 1915, Charlemagne Peralte, the leader of the second insurrection (1918-1920), Jacques Roumain, great intellectual founder of the Haitian Communist Party, Antoine G.

Obama has sent the genocidal Bush and the no less bellicose Clinton at the head of 10,000 marines, aircraft carriers and aircraft that are going to ‘help’ Haiti. This already lets one see the imperialist intentions: to keep the country in misery and submission in order to put pressure on Cuba and to prevent the revolution in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Jamaica.
