(English) L’Idéal Dessalinien

Statue de Dessalines

(English) 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? Nous devons reprendre la révolution là ou elle a été interrompue. Si non, pensons une autre révolution avec les mêmes idéaux révolutionnaires de Dessalines: liberté, une société égalitaire, sans aucune discrimination, et l’intégrité du territoire où nous serons maitre de notre destinée.

(English) By Dady Chery, Haiti Chery. Haiti’s sweatshop factory owners enjoy unprecedented duty free and quota-free access to the U.S. market, and only prison wages come close to the scandalously low 30 to 50 cents/hour earned by Haiti’s workers.

Caracol_Turtle_c

(English) By Dady Chery, Haiti Chery. Plans are under way for Canadian and US corporations to mine Haiti’s northeast area near Caracol, which has been discovered to contain a wealth of silver and gold, in addition to copper. As in the Dominican Republic’s Pueblo Viejo project, construction of the mines will involve dynamiting of mountains, and the ore will be extracted by an opencast (or open-pit) mining process that contaminates large volumes of water with cyanide. UPDATES: Attempts to issue mining permits to the US’ VCS Mining LLC and Canada’s SOMINE SA, without any environmental impact assessment (EIA) were thwarted by Haiti’s Senate in January 2013. Plans to dredge a deep-sea port in the pristine Bay of Fort Liberte were scrapped in April 2014.

(English) Hypothesis for a New Revolution in Haiti

Revolution-a

(English) 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. (English | French)
