Haitians protect Aristide from attack on Lavalas

by Malaika Kambon

In what is clearly a continuation of the Feb. 29, 2004, U.S. instigated coup d’etat against Haiti, former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide has been called before Martelly’s handpicked government prosecutor Lucmane Delille in what is widely believed to be an attempt by Martelly, the U.S. and France to wage a campaign of political persecution against Aristide, Fanmi Lavalas, and the democratic process and progress in Haiti.

Aware that the present Haitian government has ordered the arrest of 21 members of Lavalas following large demonstrations on Dec. 16, 2012, against Martelly’s rule, the Haitian people have cause to suspect the political motivation behind attempts to bring Dr. Aristide to court without charge. Additionally, other Lavalas leaders, protesting the arrests, have themselves been called into court arbitrarily.
