Duvalier hosted hundreds of local peasants in his home, personally serving them food and clarin, the native alcohol, assisted by his staff and a single National Police security guard.
Aristide and Preval ignored the citizens, their neighbors, and RARA- each isolated and guarded by dozens of heavily armed men.
More importantly, everyone ignored Preval/Aristide as though they didn’t even exist.
There is a message here, for the world to see, if it opens it’s eyes..
Duvalier requires no security.
Preval has 100 guarding his safety, while Aristide hides behind 70.
