Haiti 2010: An Unwelcome Katrina Redux

21-01-2010 22:38

Cynthia McKinney
The United States, having stolen so much from Haiti, now dictates what and when foreign aid will reach the Haitian people. Haitians know that their independence is their greatest treasure. “Haitians know, too, that the United States has installed its political proxies and even its own soldiers onto Haitian soil when the U.S. felt it was necessary.”

As a new year dawns, it is these voices of conscience who are becoming an endangered species.
