Aristide and Family Back in Haiti: His Speech: March 18, 2011 (Part 1 of 2)

March 18, 2011: Aristide and Family Arrive in Haiti - (Part 1 of 2) The World and Democracy Time Warner Cable, MNN Published: March 18, 2011 Aristide's Return to Haiti Seems Mythological By Smith Georges New York -- It is nothing short of legendary or mythological to see former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, despite opposition from world superpowers, back in Haiti again, after living in forced exile a second time - this time in South Africa for seven years, with his wife Mildred and two daughters, Michaela, 12 and Christine, 14. Even Toussaint Louverture would have been impressed. "In 1804 the Haitian Revolution marked the end of slavery. Today, may the Haitians people mark the end of exile and coup d'etat, while peacefully we must move from social exclusion to social inclusion," said President Aristide in his speech at Toussaint Louverture Airport upon his arrival in Haiti on Friday morning, March 18, 2011. The spirit of Toussaint Louverture and Dessalines is alive and well. The "defiant-never-surrender" blood of our ancestors is still warmly flowing in our veins. Haitians know their history, and Aristide makes the Haitians proud. A man of President Aristide's caliber is comparable to the great legends of the world. "Haiti is fortunate to have Jean-Bertrand Aristide. There are not many men like him that come in this century. I put Jean-Bertrand Aristide on the same level as I will put Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Mohandas Gandhi, the great men of the world...," said, once, Major Owens, an African-American and former U.S. Congress member. Haiti, the historic Caribbean nation, has just taught President Obama a lesson. Despite Haiti's plight, one should never underestimate the resolve of the authentic leaders of the first black independent country in the world. U.S. obsession with preventing Aristide, the first democratically and constitutionally elected president of Haiti, from leading his nation is beyond anyone's wild imagination. One would think that Aristide is some sort of terrorist in possession of weapons of mass destruction. Imagine Haiti without coup d'etat interruptions during the past twenty years of Aristide and Preval. Five U.S. Presidents have been involved in Aristide's life in some fashion. From President Jimmy Carter to President George H. Bush (Papa Bush), to President Bill Clinton, then to President George W. Bush (Baby Bush), and now President Obama. Obama has just gotten a taste of the Haitians' self-determination. The Haitians yearn and swear to breathe and live freely, which dates back to the Haitian Revolution in 1791, and the Haitian independence in 1804 when Haiti became the first Black country in the world. A nation born out of the only successful slave revolt in the history of mankind. The Haitians defeated the most powerful armies back then, namely the Spanish, the English and the French (The Napoleonic troops.)

Aristide Hits Preval Like a Tsunami During Nov. 2009 Interview

The World and Democracy Time Warner Cable, MNN Published: November 30, 2009 Aristide Hits Preval Like a Tsunami During Interview By Smith Georges New York From South Africa, during a phone interview on a Haitian Radio station (Radio Solidarite FM,) the former president of Haiti, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, came out swinging at current Haitian president Rene Preval. Arisde felt it was the right moment to stick it to president Rene Preval. The Ex-President of Haiti came out so forceful in his criticism of President Preval, the word tsunami may be too mild to describe it. Aristide did not mince word. He compared Prevals actions to those of Haitian dictator Baby Doc (Jean-Claude Duvalier,) and accused Preval of plotting coup detat. Aristide also made it clear that he is ready to return to Haiti as long as the current Haitian government gives him clearance. Former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide made reference to how protective he was of Preval once,and spoke as if to suggest that Preval is an ungrateful twin brother. Aristide made clear also that Lavalas is not Lespwa. Aristide also made reference to his letter dated November 18, 2009. A letter that the former president of Haiti addressed to Mr. Gaillot Dorsinvil, the president of interim electoral office. In it, Aristide states that he has mandated Ms. Maryse Narcisse to represent his political party Fanmi Lavalas. Now everyone is waiting to see the aftermath of Aristides tsunami. What will Preval next move be? Aristide also ridiculed Prevals political party calling it not Lespwa (hope,) but dezespwa (lost of hope). Aristide said that the Prevals political party is like a sinking ship. The Ex-Haitian president went on to say that Prevals new political party Unity is nothing but the same Lespwa repainted and renamed Unity. After this strong offense by President Prevals twin brother Aristide, the Haitian current president may be spinning like a dizzy dinosaur wondering what has hit him. When the smoke clears, and the dust settles, Preval may finally see the light and re-align himself on the tracks of democratic principles; or worse, he may flex his muscle even more a la monstrous dictator Papa Doc. After all, the Papa Doc syndrome seems to be back a la mode. Since all eyes are on President Preval now, lets watch what his next move will be. Click on the link below to listen to former president Aristides interview in Haitian Creole, and to view Aristides letter dated November 18, 2009.

Kim Ives on Democracy Now Mar 11 2004 following visit to Aristide in exile in CAR

Immediately after US Special Forces kidnapped President Jean-Bertrand Aristide from Haiti on Feb. 29, 2004, I traveled to the Central African Republic (CAR) to meet with him in exile with a delegation including lawyer Brian Concannon, International Action Center (IAC) activists Sara Flounders and Johnnie Stevens, and filmmaker Katharine Kean. On our return, I did this interview with Democracy Now on Mar. 11, 2004 before the delegation's press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. You may appreciate the retro-look of DN when it was still done from Jon Alpert's Firehouse studio on Lafayette Street, just below Canal Street in Manhattan. At that time, I was an editor/journalist with Haiti Progrès; now I am with Haiti Liberté, which has supplanted the former publication as the principal weekly of Haiti and its diaspora. Don't mind the frozen image of the control room over the intro; the interview is there.

Former Haitian president Aristide leaves for Haiti 2011 News

Declaring that the great day has arrived Jean-Bertrand Aristide bade farewell to South Africa on Thursday evening then boarded a plane for Haiti where he can expect both adoring crowds and probing questions about his intentions. US President Barack Obama had tried to keep the hugely popular but controversial figure away from his country until after it held a presidential election this weekend a vote many fear will be destabilised by the presence of the former Haitian president. Speaking in several different languages Aristide addressed about 50 reporters from South Africa and elsewhere at a small airport in northern Johannesburg that often handles charter flights. South Africa s foreign minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane accompanied him his wife Mildred and two daughters to see them off. Michaela 12 and Christine 14 have spent half their lives and their most formative years in exile. American actor Danny Glover the chairman of the TransAfrica Forum came to South Africa to accompany Aristide home and was also at the news conference. The great day has arrived. The day to say goodbye before returning home Aristide said in Zulu a language he studied in South Africa. We are delighted to return home after seven years. In Haiti also they are very happy .... Their dream will be fulfilled he added. Together we will continue to share this endless love. Aristide took no questions before heading to his chartered plane. His lawyer Ira Kurzban has said Aristide will be back in Haiti by noon on Friday. Thousands are expected to welcome him home. Aristide a former slum priest was twice elected president of Haiti and remains wildly popular among the Caribbean nation s majority poor. Aristide never completed either of his terms. He was ousted the first time in a coup and restored to power in a US military intervention in 1994. After completing his term he was re-elected years later only to flee a rebellion in 2004 aboard a US plane. Aristide claimed he was kidnapped. He has been reclusive in exile doing university research and polishing his academic credentials with a doctorate awarded by the University of South Africa for a comparative study on Zulu and Haitian Creole.

Part 8 - Should Aristide be allowed back.wmv

Part 8 - "Should Aristide be allowed back?" In this segment, RAM weighs in on whether the exiled former President of Haiti should be allwed to return to his homeland. Aristide was first elected December 16, 1990 and overthrown in a CIA-backed military coup, the evening of September 30, 1991. As one of several conditions for his return to Haiti in 1994, then U.S. President Bill Clinton and "Western" allies demanded that the 3 years he spent in exile be counted as part of his 5 year presidential mandate. As the Haitian Constitution forbids two consecutive terms, he could not run in the elections organized under his presidency in 1995. The next opportunity for him to run was in November 2000. See also... a November 2010 interview given by Aristide to U.S. Journalist Nicolas Rossier: Humanitarian Crisis in Haiti; Exclusive Interview With Former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide by Nicolas Rossier http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=21898 Part 7 "Did Aristide Steal the 2000 Elections" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1W5LN64eldk In this segment, RAM tries to recall how things unraveled in Haiti 10 years ago. The May 21, 2000 Legislative Elections and the November 26, 2000 Presidential Elections are put in context. Aristide Haitian and foreign foes claim these elections were rigged in favor of the exiled former President's Fanmi Lavalas (FL) party. Part 6 -- "It was a coup, I participated!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oxh8J6HCe4w In this segment, RAM explains his rationale for taking part in the February 2004 coup d'état that toppled the government of president Jean-Bertrand Aristide. He claims to have attended coup-plotting meetings in Washington. I asked him whether, now in 2010, he has any regrets. Can you guess his answer? The full interview, including the English segments (Part 5 forward) will continue to be posted on Youtube over the coming days. N.B.: The first segment (parts 1-4) is available in Kreyol and covers a range of topics that may help shed light on current events unfolding in Haiti, as the nation braces for the final days of Y2010.

Part 9 - Is Aristide still too popular.wmv

Part 9 -- "Is Aristide still (too) popular?" In this segment, RAM discusses the popularity of former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, currently living in exile in South-Africa. I asked him whether, in 2010 Aristide iremains themost popular political leader of Haiti and whether his popularity is the reason for his continued exile. N.B.: Since the February 29, 2004 Coup d'État which toppled overnight 7000 officials who were elected through Haitian-run and funded elections in 2000, Fanmi Lavalas, Aristide's party has been barred from participating in every election held in Haiti, including those held November 28, 2010. The latter was financed and supervised by the foreign forces that are running Haiti since the 2004 coup (the U.S., France, Canada, the U.N.) Four months after Goudougoudou (the quake), I interviewed Richard Morse (RAM) at The Oloffson, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The full interview, including the English segments (Part 5 forward), which contain noteworthy revelations about the February 29, 2004 Coup d'État, will be posted on Youtube over the coming days. The first segment (parts 1-4) is now available in Kreyol and covers a range of topics that may help shed light on current events unfolding in Haiti, as the nation braces for the final days of Y2010. See also: Part 5 -- "Washington and The Families" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQO4DtfHa6E In this segment, RAM explains what he considers Washington's influence in Haiti and why it has not been positive in the recent past. Part 6 -- "It was a coup, I participated!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oxh8J6HCe4w

Angry demonstrators demand Sarkozy to pay up and return Aristide to Haiti

Also watch Kevin Pina's latest documentary "Haiti: We Must Kill the Bandits": http://bit.ly/eWFDLd Angry demonstrators demand Sarkozy to pay up and return Aristide to Haiti by Kevin Pina Port au Prince, Haiti - HIP — Thousands of supporters of ousted president Jean-Bertrand Aristide took to the streets on Wednesday as French president Nicolas Sarkozy toured the earthquake ravaged capital of Port au Prince. Holding pictures of the ousted president aloft they chanted for France to pay more then 21 billion dollars in restitution and reparations and to return Aristide as Sarkozy's helicopter landed near Haiti's quake damaged national palace. Their demands stem from a long held dispute over compensation a nascent Haiti was forced to pay French slave owners in exchange for recognition of their independence and France's role in ousting Aristide in 2004.

A similar demonstration was held in Haiti's second city Cap Haitien. The demonstrators warned President Michel Martelly not to persecute Aristide, who returned from a self-imposed seven-year exile in 2011, and who in May was called as a witness to give evidence in the case of a journalist murdered in 2000. Police eventually used tear gas and fired in the air when the crowd in the capital tried to get close to the presidential palace, and the army was called in to restore order, guided by the police and members of the UN's Haitian stabilisation force Minustah.

Aristide supporters clash with Haiti police

Supporters of former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide have clashed with riot police as they marched through the capital on the anniversary of a 1991 military coup that ousted the country's first democratically elected leader. Thousands of Aristide supporters tried to march from the church where Aristide led services as a Catholic priest to his house on Tuesday, but police fired water cannons and tear gas to disperse them before they arrived at the home. The march marked the date that the military ousted Aristide only a few months into his first term as president. Many of the marchers are angry that the former president is facing corruption charges and accuse Haitian President Michel Martelly of being a dictator. The demonstrators also fear Aristide will be arrested for failing to heed a court summons to testify in a corruption case. An investigative judge issued an arrest warrant in August, but police have so far not moved to carry it out. Officials say the allegations of money laundering, corruption and drug trafficking are serious and will need to be answered. His supporters say Aristide's apparent house arrest is a deliberate attempt to keep a popular leader from running in elections and have called for the resignation of Martelly. Opposition political activist Rony Timothee said that next year, when the presidential election is held, Martelly "will be a political disaster" and "will not be able to rule the country". Aristide, seen by many as a champion of the poor, served as president twice but he has rarely been seen in public since returning from exile in South Africa three years ago.

El ex presidente Jean-Bertrand Aristide regresó a Haití luego de 7 años de exilio

Los haitianos se congregaron en el aeropuerto de Puerto Príncipe para recibir al ex mandatario / Aristide regresó acompañado de sus hijas, esposa y el actor norteamericano Dany Glover / Jean-Bertrand Aristide fue el primer presidente haitiano electo democráticamente en el país caribeño Tras siete años de exilio en Sudáfrica, el ex presidente haitiano, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, retornó este viernes en la mañana a su país. Según reportó la enviada especial de Telesur a la isla, los haitianos se congregaron en el aeropuerto de Puerto Príncipe para recibir al ex mandatario. Aristide regresó acompañado de sus hijas, esposa y el actor norteamericano Dany Glover. Al aeropuerto también fueron a recibir a Aristide la ex senadora colombiana Piedad Córdoba y el embajador de Venezuela en ese país, Pedro Antonio Canino. Entre las actividades en las que participará el ex mandatario se espera una rueda de prensa y un recorrido por la ciudad de Puerto Príncipe junto con sus seguidores. Aristide partió el pasado jueves en un jet las 11:14 horas locales (09:14 GMT) de Lanseria, cerca de Johannesburgo, en Sudáfrica. Antes de embarcarse, Aristide manifestó estar "contento por retornar a Haití. El gran día ha llegado. El momento de la despedida antes de regresar a casa". Jean-Bertrand Aristide fue el primer presidente haitiano electo democráticamente en el país caribeño, luego de ganar los comicios de 1990, sin embargo, su gestión fue interrumpida en 1991 por un golpe de Estado que protagonizó el militar Raúl Cedras. Más tarde, en el año 2000, Aristide vuelve a ganar las elecciones presidenciales y en su nuevo Gobierno intentó desvincular al país de los intereses estadounidenses. Su acercamiento diplomático con Cuba y Venezuela provocó un nuevo golpe de Estado en su contra. El 29 de febrero de 2004, Aristide fue secuestrado por fuerzas especiales estadounidenses. Representantes diplomáticos de Estados Unidos llegaron a la casa del mandatario con un contingente bélico para sacarlo del país.
