Retour sur Haïti
Patrick Elie, ministre de la défense et responsable de la lutte anti-drogue sous Aristide (première présidence) est interviewé pour Z Mag:
There is something ominous about this particular election. You have four candidates for the presidency and political parties who are ex-FaDH. You have Colonel Himmler Rébu, Guy Philippe, Major Dany Toussaint, and Frank Romain, who everybody should know because he’s been doing his killing since Papa Doc Duvalier late-50s. Also, there’s a political party called MUP. Even though the candidate himself is not an ex-FaDH, the power behind this party is also General Prosper Avril [who from 1988-1990 headed the military dictatorship that ruled Haiti after Baby Doc’s departure]. So I would tend to think that the ex-Duvalierist network and the FaDH network would back up these parties.
And to the ex-military, you also have to add the ex-death squad members of FRAPH, because Jodel Chamblain, who’s been judged and sentenced twice for his involvement in countless murders, is running for candidate in the party of Guy Philippe. Because they completely erased his trial for Izméry’s murder, and they’ve sprung him loose on the Raboteau massacre. So now he’s running for office. This is the kind of situation we’re in and they tell us that they are taking us to democracy, just like they’re taking cattle to the killing house.
This time, really, Canada has been acting a bit like the busboy of the US. It’s like Haiti was used as a making up gift to the US after Canada’s position on the Iraq war.
I can tell the Canadian public that the Haitian people have a PhD in resistance. They’re going to resist. They have a strong culture. And they’re not going to become a toy or modeling clay in the hands of some Canadian politicians.
Taking us to democracy like cattle to a killing house, Patrick Elie, 15 décembre 2005
