Haiti – Politic : 20th anniversary of the overthrow of Aristide, low mobilization – Added COMMENTARY By Haitian-Truth

The supporters of former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide held last Friday in Belair, a rally to mark the 20th anniversary of the military coup of 1991 that overthrew the former Head of State during his first term.

While they were thousands of supporters to welcome the return after seven years of exile in South Africa, of their political leader last March, the rally of Friday was marked by a low mobilization, gathering just over 200 people.

Ansyto Félix, the Spokesman of the Commission of Mobilization of Fanmi Lavalas, declared on this occasion, that the coup of 1991 had marked “a break in the long struggle of Haitians for a more democratic society”



These people cannot accept the facts as facts.

They are still holding onto the lie that there were thousands, at the airport, to greet Aristide on his return to Haiti last January. I was there and counted a bunch of airport workers, who would be there with, or without Aristide. Added to this was a bunch of journalists, totally something like 50, perhaps sixty. And a few Aristide supporters – no more than a few dozen, much the same number as celebrated on September 29th.

Cut the crap about MOBILIZATION – or lack of it for the poor turn out. Rene Momplaisir, King of the Popular Organizations, and the Aristide Foundation spent over $500,000 to pay demonstrators…..and they still could not get more than 200. In fact, one of our readers, who claims to have been there, counted 127 including the bands hired to attract people.

Even Anne Auguste has deserted Aristide, switching allegiance to Michel Martelly.

Aristide must be frightened now that certain groups take the low turn-out as a signal that they will not be bothered as they pursue Aristide’s arrest for the many murders he ordered during his presidencies. One of the first complaints will cover his assassination of Mireille Durocher-Bertin.

There are plans to drown Aristide with complaints to make him a permanent resident of the Parquet as he is forced into giving depositions.

There is a saying that “You can run but you cannot hide…” Aristide has no place to run. He is trapped in Haiti since no other nation will accept him.

  1. Unfortunately the September 29, 1991 murders of Doctor Roger Lafontant and the Revered Sylvio Claude have become statute barred with the passing of 20 years – exactly.

    There are many other crimes, still withing 20 years with which to pursue Aristide and his clone Preval.

  2. Someone should initiate a bureau wherein people can register complaints against the Preval and Aristide demons.

  3. What is the best possible way for the Haitians to be fed the truth concerning the corrupt, selfish, money hungry, murderers, that they continue to vote in to represent their country.Media coverage, even if it takes a truck with a bull horn. Information filled with truth no lies must reach these poor people.We are in need of one god fearing honest man that truly has the Haitian people as his driven campaign. Haiti is laughed at because of the choice of all the corrupt leaders they have choosen in the past.I know that any man or women who comes against the system of corruption has many times paid with their life. There must be hundreds of Haiti in the states that still care about their families, and relatives. Before your outside, and inside enemies accomplish their goal of genocide you must wake, get up and get going.
