The crisis in Haiti is a crisis of imperialism. It is because of western imperialism – and those who aid and abet it – that the earthquake and tropical storm become wide scale disasters. . . .

Second, and most importantly, Haiti is already under occupation. Calls for “intervention” are not only disingenuous, but actually redundant. . . .
