Ten years after: the Haiti occupation continues

The Haiti Occupation Continues   -  by Yves Engler

http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/02/07/the-haiti-occupation-continues/

"On February 29, 2004 the US, France and Canada overthrew Haiti's elected government. The foreign military intervention led to an unmitigated human rights disaster.

There is some evidence that Canadian forces in Haiti participated directly in the political repression.

In the lead up to the 10th anniversary of the coup, will any major media outlets mention Canada's complicity in the worst human rights disaster in the Western hemisphere this century?"

"We sign this statement to tell the world and especially the Haitian people, that we are ashamed and outraged by the Canadian Government's active participation in the February 29, 2004 Coup d'Etat that toppled the duly elected Government of Haiti led by President Jean Bertrand Aristide.

On behalf of all Canadians, the great majority of whom are kept ignorant of this coup and its aftermath, we sincerely apologize for the terrible, lasting damage it has caused..."

Just imagine, this is the thanks Canada gets after all our help and attention paid. Outrageous!

Canada provided the "soft" support for regime change in Haiti. Just playing our part in the imperial order of things. Like all the other countries we have helped rid of their insufferable elected governments it seems that the conditions that were used as an excuse for the original coup are far worse not better.

Americans Detained in Haiti Transporting Weapons Cache Amid Uprising

"Even as Trump seeks to inspire a military coup against Venezuela's Nicolas Maduro, evidence is mounting that the US government is enabling American mercenaries to violently quell a popular uprising in Haiti..."

It would be a reasonable assumption, based on past interventions, to find Canada also involved. Watch this space...

Engler: Canadian Policy on Venezuela, Haiti, Reveals Hypocrisy that Media Ignores

https://yvesengler.com/2019/02/19/canadian-policy-on-venezuela-haiti-rev...

"...Unlike Venezuela, Haiti is not divided. Basically, everyone wants the current 'president' to go...So what has been Ottawa's response to the popular protests in Haiti? Has Global Affairs released a statement supporting the will of the people? Has Justin Trudeau called the Haitian President a 'brutal dictator?'

In fact it's the exact opposite to the situation in Venezuela. The only reason the Haitian president is hanging on is because of support from the so-called 'Core Group' of 'Friends of Haiti,' comprising the ambassadors of Canada, France, Brazil, Germany and the US as well as representatives of Spain, EU and OAS. The 'Core Group' released a statement last week 'acknowledging the professionalism shown by the Haitian National Police.'

As I detailed 10 weeks ago in a story headlined 'Canada Backs Haitian Government Even As Police Force Kills Demonstrators,' Ottawa has provided countless forms of support to Moise's unpopular government. The incredible hypocrisy in Ottawa's response to recent political developments in Haiti and Venezuela is shameful. Why has no major media dared contrast the two?"

Because Canadians are too busy slavishly following their msm  to bother demanding such coverage.

Noops

Had to read and re-read your last sentence several times to try to make sense of it.
Could you please finish it? Far worse than what?

As US Intervention Germinates in Venezuela We Must Not Forget the Implications For Haiti

https://blackagendareport.com/us-intervention-germinates-venezuela-we-mu...

"...But the people can smell the miasma surrounding the US intervention in Venezuela and Haiti - and they know more than ever that the fate of both nations are directly tied. The people of Haiti are once again attempting to win back their nation.

If the people of Haiti and Venezuela are successful in beating back the attempts by the US to impose its control over these two nations connected by history and struggle, it will signal that the era of US imperial control really is coming to an end.

That would be a victory not only for the peoples of Venezuela and Haiti but for the world."

CANADIAN MILITARY IN HAITI. WHY? [Cue Canucklehead crickets]

http://yvesengler.com/2019/02/22/canadian-military-in-haiti-why/

"Canadian troops may have recently been deployed to Haiti, even though the government has not asked Parliament or consulted the public for approval to send soldiers to that country. Last week the Haiti Information Project photographed heavily-armed Canadian troops patrolling the Port-au-Prince Airport. According to a knowledgeable source I emailed the photos to, they were probably Special Forces..."
