Written by Erica Caines and Austin Cole Since 1804, The Haitian Revolution has been discussed throughout the African world as its personal pride. Described as the largest and most successful slave rebellion in the Western Hemisphere, over the span of 10 years the “first Black republic”, Haiti, challenged colonial powers ending French control eventually winning its independence. Haiti’s success had a far-reaching impact, both directly and indirectly, contributing to the broader movement toward freedom, equality, and the end of colonialism and slavery. The success of the Haitian Revolution influenced the leaders of Latin American independence movements receiving support from Haiti, . . .
Haiti Has Suffered Under Western Occupations And Interference In Its Affairs. The people of Haiti are struggling to break free from that domination and can look to mass movements in Francophone Africa. There have been nine coups in the past three years in former French colonies in Africa– Mali, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Chad, Niger, Tunisia and recently Gabon. Some in Francophone Africa have realized something that Haitians once knew over 200 years ago under the leadership of Jean Jacques Dessalines: The meddling in the affairs of an independent nation will not be tolerated simply because the dominion of that nation . . .
The dice have been cast: in October 2023, the international community will decide the fate of a sovereign country, on the pretext of restoring security, while the people claim their right to self-determination as enshrined in the United Nations Charter. An important part of this people has worked, assuming its political sovereignty, on the construction of an alternative presented in the Montana Accords ( http://www.akomontana.ht ) which contain a set of measures proposing a democratic transition. This was done with a view to assuming civic responsibility and contributing to a solution to the crisis. Despite their determination to make their . . .
Speaking at the 78th session of the United Nations General assembly on 19 September, President Biden called on the UN Security Council to immediately authorise the planned US invasion of Haiti. This demand made by Biden from the podium of the UN underlines how determined the US is to launch its invasion and demonstrates that the occupation of Haiti and the plundering of its resources, including its rare earth iridium deposits, are of the utmost importance to the US corporations and the US government which represents them. From December 1914, when US marines invaded Haiti and literally stole its gold reserves from the . . .
The U.S. recently deployed troops to Peru to shore-up the coup in that country, followed by the deployment of troops to Ecuador and the bizarre AFRICOM plan to insert Kenya and Rwanda forces all the way from Africa to Haiti to support the illegitimate Ariel Henry puppet government in that nation. White supremacy in Black face. This is madness, but desperate madness! Experiencing their worst nightmare, the French are in the process of being expelled from their African empire. They have desperately drawn the line in Niger, where they had been forced to redeploy their troops after being expelled from . . .
AUGUST 3, 2023—The Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) condemns in the strongest possible terms Kenya’s proposal to lead what amounts to a foreign armed intervention in Haiti. Kenya has offered to deploy a contingent of 1,000 police officers to help train and assist Haitian police, ostensibly to “restore order” in the Caribbean republic. Yet, their proposal is nothing more than military occupation by another name; an occupation of Haiti by an African country is not Pan-Africanism, but Western imperialism in Black face. By agreeing to send troops into Haiti, the Kenyan government is assisting in undermining the sovereignty and self-determination . . .
Kamala Harris wants to be your aunty. The Biden Administration’s controversial Vice President is often presented as either an incompetent sidekick, or a lovable big sister figure who “stays with her hair done”. Usually when she is presented to the general public it’s a roast— right wing media highlighting her latest string of incoherent thoughts or social media unloading a fresh set of cop memes. In February, The New York Times published the headline, “Kamala Harris Is Trying to Define Her Vice Presidency. Even Her Allies Are Tired of Waiting.” In the piece, John Morgan, a prominent fund-raiser for the . . .
