L’Idéal Dessalinien

Statue de Dessalines

Par Michel-Ange Cadet | Haiti Chery. Qu’en est-il aujourd’hui de cet idéal? Qu’en est-il de cette révolution et surtout où nous nous sommes perdus comme nation, comme peuple?

Hypothesis for a New Revolution in HaitiL’hypothèse d’une nouvelle révolution en Haïti

Revolution-a

By Michel Ange Cadet, Haiti Chery | News Junkie Post. Revolution is mental because it emanates, first and foremost, from a collective consciousness. One must take stock of one’s own predicament. It makes one imagine another way to live. It makes one dream. And this in turn forces us out of our indifference to act, so that we stop dreaming but enact and give life to a common ideal.
