(en) Czech, AFED: Haiti: Rebellion against the puppet government [machine translation]

Date Tue, 8 Oct 2019 10:29:39 +0300

The imperialist appetite of the US again forced the people to resort to armed struggle. ---- Haitian revolutionaries on Friday vandalized several police stations, politicians' houses, prisons and court buildings. The rebels intend to overthrow the corrupt right-wing regime of Jovel Moise, supported by the Trump administration. Many people were injured, four people died. ---- This June, auditors of the Haitian Supreme Court issued a report incriminating Moise as a key figure in the embezzlement machine. This clique has transferred to the private accounts several billion dollars provided by Venezuela for the development of a spawned Caribbean country. Money flowed through the Petrocaribe program, which allows Central American and Caribbean countries to buy Venezuelan oil on favorable terms. To make matters worse, Moise stepped out of Petrocaribe last year, under pressure from the Trump administration, which was a severe blow to this constantly tested country. Fuel prices have skyrocketed and Haiti is collapsing.

The protesters first expelled the cops from the Cité Soleil slum, in the suburbs of the capital Port-au-Prince. Police stations in the area were decommissioned with a great deal of precision. Under the shower of molotovs and stones, even armed members of special UDMO units (Unité Départementale de Maintien d'Ordre) ran to the teeth. They were trained in Austin, Texas, to keep many Haitians in their hands to keep Moise in power.

All government offices in Port-au-Prince have been closed. Demonstrators filled the streets, singing and dancing. Barricades erupted on the main avenues. Prisoners were freed from the prison adjacent to the main court, then both buildings were burned to ashes. Several witnesses reported that the police faced armed resistance. Armed insurgents also attacked statesman's villas, including the home of Judge Pierre Volmar Demesyeux, who exonerated Jovenel Moise. The court building in Petit-Goâve also burned. The insurgents did not escape the attention of the banks either, and several branches of Sogebank were attacked, whose owners were involved in stealing the country. The storm did not only hit the capital. A police station was also fired in Gonaives in the north.
