October 19th Mobilization against UN troops in Haiti

On the basis of the Call from Collective for the Compensation of Cholera Victims in which we participate, some 400 persons mobilized last October 19th to protest again against the presence of the MINUSTAH (U.N.) troops in Haiti.

This day marks one year since the Nepalese battalion of the MINUSTAH threw their contaminated excrements in the Artibonite river, thus propagating the epidemic in the country. As is known, this epidemic caused much harm amongst the population and, because of the authorities’ incapacity, has never been able to be really controlled, the victims abandoned.

Beyond the thefts, rapes and exactions of all sorts committed by these armed forces of the MINUSTAH, the demonstrators also denounced their flagrant incompetence, since, well after the 2010 earthquake, they still haven’t been able to help the population in any way.

The fact is, in reality, that in the framework of the occupation added to permanent humiliation, this UN mission has the plan to establish a domination-repression on the population in general and the workers in particular, for the benefit of the multinationals’ unlimited exploitation, supported by a lackey bourgeoisie, the big landowners and other shameless big-eaters of the various governments.

Because of this, with a single voice, the demonstrators also protested against the repressive army that the new authorities want to reestablish in the country and that, within this extreme neo-liberal policy of extreme exploitation, will never serve more than for this same repression against the popular masses and the workers in particular.

The march ended at the capital’s cemetery where we burned a coffin symbolizing our repugnance and total repudiation of this situation.
