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 . . .
Trade and financial sanctions have been put in place to cripple the advancement of over twenty countries. In most cases these are unilateral sanctions put in place by a single government, the United States. Other western capitalist countries like France and England have also played a part in these illegitimate sanctions. The stated aim of sanctions is generally to punish a government for actions counter to the principles and interest of the sanctioning country. In all cases the sanctions punish the people. The poorer and most disadvantaged generally suffer the most. The governments sponsoring sanctions make claims like, they are . . .
The Black Alliance for Peace Baltimore Citywide Alliance strongly opposes the proposal for a new $330 million joint training facility (Cop City) for Baltimore’s police and fire departments on West Baltimore’s Coppin State University campus. The contradictions of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) fostering growing relationships with the state are sharpened with this proposal on a campus with access to the Department of Defense 1033 program budgets, which transfers military equipment to civilian law enforcement agencies. Any potential existence of a joint training facility for a police department currently under a consent decree, that names violations of civil liberties, . . .

On March 8, 2023, General Laura J. Richardson of the United States (U.S.) Southern Command gave testimony at a congressional hearing wherein she issued a warning to U.S. lawmakers about the expansion of Chinese influence in the Caribbean that were at odds with purported U.S. interests in the region. Richardson advised policy makers in the U.S. to “pay more attention” to the Caribbean (and Central and South America) because “proximity matters.” To raise the issue to a level of “threat” for U.S. policymakers, Richardson claimed that China had “increased its support for anti-U.S. regimes in the region” of which 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 . . .
