Wyclef's Emotional Plea For Haiti

 
 
 
In an emotional letter posted on CNN’s website, recording-artist Wyclef Jean gives a dramatic update on the relief efforts in his beloved Haiti. Sadly, there isn’t much good news to report. 
 
Read quotes from Wyclef’s letter after the jump. 
 
 
 
It’s been six months since Haiti was devastated by the January 12 earthquake, yet Wyclef says the progress being made in the country rivals the speed of a turtle.
 
He told CNN:
 
With the amount of money that has been raised to help our country, I was expecting to see construction projects. I was expecting to see thousands of heavy tractors and loaders lifting up rubble. I was expecting to see people relocated from tents and starting to get into temporary housing. And yet, during my last visit, just a few weeks ago, I saw very few, or none, of these.
We need to work together -- no one organization or government can succeed without the help and cooperation of others.
We need to work together for the people there who so badly need our help. The country needs to grow in all areas, from agriculture to health care.
Many people have been working very hard with the recovery efforts since that terrible day. Many of us were there the day after the quake, and we've gone back many times since, to deliver much-needed supplies and plan ways to rebuild -- and really just to try to help the people. Unless you've been there yourself, you can't imagine the terrible conditions that still exist for so many.
Source
It’s sad to know that over 1.6 million people are still living in makeshift camps.
And that there are thousands of orphaned children.
 
What can you do to help Haiti?

The U.S. in Haiti: A Century

The U.S. in Haiti: A Century of Domination and Misery In the wake of the earthquake, the U.S. is posing as the greatest friend of Haiti. But the whole history of the U.S. in Haiti shows just the opposite. The native people of the island of Hispaniola (what is today Haiti and the Dominican Republic) were exterminated by the Spanish conquerors in the 1500s and 1600s. In the 18th century, the French colonialists who took over Haiti set up a system of slavery so harsh it was assumed new slaves would die from overwork. The blood of slaves poured into the capitalist world markets of coffee and sugar, making Haiti the most profitable colony in the world. In 1791, Toussaint L’Ouverture led a slave rebellion which over 13 years defeated, in succession, the slave-owners of Haiti, armies from Spain and Britain (who saw the revolt as an opportunity to seize Haiti for themselves), and then the army of Napoleon, the French leader who at that time had conquered most of Europe.1 Toussaint was captured after agreeing to negotiate a peace with the French, and taken back to France in chains, where he died in prison. But the rebellion flared up until Haiti was independent, and slavery abolished. This was the first and only successful slave revolution in history.2 The Haitian Revolution set off a panic among the rulers of the U.S. and the European powers, who refused to recognize the new Haitian Republic. The French navy imposed a total embargo on Haiti. In 1805 the French foreign minister wrote to U.S. Secretary of State James Madison that “The existence of a Negro people in arms, occupying a country it has soiled by the most criminal acts, is a horrible spectacle for all white nations.”3 The U.S. honored the embargo and refused to recognize, assist or trade with Haiti. The embargo had a crippling impact on the island nation, whose agriculture had been devastated by warfare. It remained in effect until 1825, when France agreed to end it, in return for a Haitian commitment to “compensate” them for the loss of their “property”—i.e., their SLAVES.This “debt” was set at 150 million francs—roughly the annual French budget.4 Haiti was forcibly enmeshed in a network of debt and deep poverty. In the late 1800s, debt payments amounted to 80% of the Haitian budget.5 In the 20th century, the U.S. asserted itself as the dominant power in its “backyard.” In 1915 it invaded and occupied Haiti. U.S. Marines went straight to the Haitian national bank and removed its gold reserves to Citibank in New York City. The Haitian constitution was rewritten to allow foreign ownership of Haitian property; land was seized from small peasants to create large plantations;6 the economy was reorganized so that 40% of Haiti’s gross domestic product flowed to U.S. banks.7 The Haitian people fiercely resisted the occupation in a series of revolts which the U.S. military ruthlessly crushed, murdering leaders, burning villages to the ground and killing 15-30,000 Haitians.8 The occupiers did not leave until 1934, leaving behind the brutal, U.S.-trained, Haitian National Army to repress the people. In 1957, François “Papa Doc” Duvalier came to power in a fraudulent election and set up his own army of thugs—the Tontons Macoutes. The Duvalierist reign of terror—supported and backed by the U.S.—killed roughly 50,000 people.9 When Papa Doc died in 1971, U.S. warships were stationed just off the coast of Haiti to oversee a smooth transition of power to Duvalier’s son, Jean-Claude (“Baby Doc”). Baby Doc was closely associated with the “American Plan,” 10 which explicitly aimed to cut the ground out from under peasant agriculture by large-scale imports of cheaper U.S. goods, driving hundreds of thousands of peasants into the cities and shantytowns, desperate for work in U.S.-owned assembly plants being set up by the likes of Disney and Kmart, which paid workers 11 cents an hour to make pajamas and t-shirts.11 In 1985-86 a powerful uprising swept Haiti, forcing the U.S. to rescue Baby Doc and fly him to the French Riviera, in order to preserve their basic control of the country through the Haitian Army. A series of military governments followed, known to Haitians as “Duvalierism without Duvalier.” In 1991, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a radical priest and a leader of the Ti Legliz (“Little Church,” the Haitian expression of the Liberation Theology movement) and of the anti-Duvalierist movement, was elected president. Though Aristide did not have a plan to break out of the framework of U.S. domination, he was not totally subservient to it nor to the pro-U.S. local ruling classes and repeatedly clashed with them over both foreign and domestic policy. Haitian reactionaries hated him, the U.S. saw him as “unreliable” and from even before his inauguration worked to overthrow him.12 On September 30, 1991, after just nine months in office, the CIA collaborated with local military forces to stage a bloody coup d’état, and in ensuing waves of repression unleashed soldiers and Macoutes to rip up the networks of mass organization, especially in slums like Cité Soleil, that were Aristide’s base of support. Thousands of his supporters were killed, up to 300,000 went into hiding, and another 60,000 fled the island in makeshift boats.13 But this did not quell resistance or establish a “stable environment” for the U.S., so in 1994 the U.S. brokered a deal to restore Aristide to office, returning him from exile on a U.S. warship, accompanied by 20,000 U.S. troops who proceeded to protect the violent paramilitaries from the people and allow them to keep their arms, while they reorganized the army to more effectively suppress the people. The troops remained for over a year. The terms of a deal (known as the Governors Island accords) was that Aristide abandon all resistance to the U.S. plan for Haiti and to the Haitian Army and ruling class.14 Aristide largely honored this agreement but continued to fight for whatever concessions he could find, which the U.S. found unacceptable. On February 29, 2004, after many months of political and military preparation in which the U.S. was directly involved (through the CIA and the International Republican Institute—IRI) a second coup was carried out. The U.S. military literally kidnapped Aristide and his family and put him on a plane to the Central African Republic, where he was kept as a new regime consolidated.15 By March 1, hundreds of U.S. Marines again controlled the capital, and new waves of attacks, often by U.S. soldiers, were unleashed on the people. In June they were replaced by a force of 7,000 UN troops (mainly Brazilian) who have been cited by Human Rights groups as widely practicing “Summary Executions.” From that time until the earthquake, there has been no serious challenge to U.S. economic, political and military control of Haiti. 1. In an inspiring example of internationalism, many European troops—including a whole battalion from Poland—deserted to the Haitian Revolution when they realized that they were fighting to restore slavery. [Damning the Flood: Haiti, Aristide, and the Politics of Containment, Peter Hallward, Verso, London, 2007, p. 350, note 45.] [back]

I find it interesting that

I find it interesting that grassroot organizations have used most of their funds to assist Haiti, but the larger organizations have released such minimal amounts. I would like CNN to invite the representatives from the Red Cross and other organizations back on the show. They need to give an update on what has happened with donor contributions. It's abominable that hospitals and clinics may close due to lack of money because America and other countries are not releasing the funds in a timely manner. As for Wyclef, I think its totally unfair to deem him guilty because of an accusation. Since the earthquake, he has been down in the trenches with Haitian people. No one would expose themselves to disease nor remove decomposing bodies without having a sense of dedication and love for his people. They know his heart and spirit is with them. With that being said, please respect your fellow human beings who are suffering and dying. Also, much respect to Sean Penn, and to the other faceless volunteers who donate their time, energy and effort for humanity. Much love, honor and respect to Haiti!

According to WaPo, only 2% of the promised aid has made it to Haiti. Meanwhile, Haitian bourgoisie, international companies and colonizing countries are circling the money to use up for their own projects. Also not being told by the media is the devastating rate of rape going on in these unsecured camps.

ALLEGEDLY Wyclef used

ALLEGEDLY Wyclef used donation money for personal use. I really do doubt that Wyclef: the man who has been repping haiti since day one with the fugees would do such a thing. Wyclef does not have to be on the news like Bill Clinton who just returned to Haiti. Haiti is Wyclef home. He is going to go to parts of Haiti that other would not even think about. He is going to help Haiti in ways that others would not even imagine. And you know why? Its because Clef loves his country too much to have foreigners come in and do more work that he. The Haitian community loves Clef because we know the many pleas he has done for our country. I did not donate to an American non profit organization like Red cross because I knew at the end like with 9/11 a lot of the money was not going to get to Haiti. Yele is the best bet to donate because even though the media tried to shun Clef the Haitian community knows him enough to know that was pure bullshit. As far as people saying oh im going to help Katrina victims first. Each to its own. Its your money and time so do what you want with it. The Haitian government is extremely corrupt. BUT it is just as corrupt as the American government. The difference is Politics is a big deal in Haiti. the average Joe in Haiti will know the policies or whats going on in that Whit House because the Haitian Radio will exploit the government. Radio broadcasters has been killed in Haiti because they were expoliting the government. your not going to hear something like this in America. I wish the best for my mothers country its been through too much and it sucks that people are still living in the condition that they are living in.

I so completely agree with

I so completely agree with you here. As a Haitian-American i have seen no one show that they care for their homeland like Wyclef has. And for people to come out and say the ignorant stuff that they are saying is simply inhumane. Its our jobs as human beings to help anyone that is in need of it.

I am beyond disgusted at some

I am beyond disgusted at some of the comments on here. Some of you have shown that you have hearts and have made well thought out and compassionate statements but for the rest of you...it's beyond embarassing. More like a god damn joke. For you to take this issue - displaced people, destitute people, poor people, the helpless, the hopeless; in A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY - and then go ranting and raving about how much money they have there and how they should, in a simplified version, bugger off and figure this out for themselves....I could curse but I don't think you even deserve that much passion. Statements like that; ignorant, misguided, ludicrous statements like that, are the reason why so many in the world have been completely disillusioned with not only the American people but the entire nation as a source of aid given it's relatively immense wealth. My aim is not to preach because I too have my faults but come on! Some of you absolutely sicken me and I'm sure others who read your comments would concur.

Haiti is not poor it's poorly

Haiti is not poor it's poorly managed politicians are corrupt, they have been for many decades. Every last one of those children need to be documented, where they go and with whom. I live in Montreal and we have a large Haitian community along with many other nationalities. Tourism is fueling the Dominican Republic's economic growth creating jobs and Haiti is on the same Island. They will rebuild Port-au-Prince but it will take alot more than 6 months. Wyclef knows this.

This is the first I have felt

This is the first I have felt compelled to respond. I often glance at folks' IGNORANT comments on here and this still hold true. Black people can be the most ignorant people out there. Black AMERICANS that is! Why compare NO with Haiti? To not give a flying fish about HAiti or Africa is inhumane. Of course naturally we will all be concerned with what happens in our home front more.But come on. Haiti is documented as the poorest nation in the western hemisphere prior to this tragedy. Money does not go into Haiti. You don't see a slew of tourist attractions there to bring in money. You don't see annual MUSIC FESTIVALS to generate money. These are all natural disasters that are greatly unfortunate and help is needed point blank.

I am pretty sure half the

I am pretty sure half the people on here complaining about what is going on in America, and in many of our very own back yards are doing little to rectify the problem. Many Americans didn't care about what was going on in the Gulf Coast with Katrina when it wasn't being played on the news, many didn't make one contribution or lend one helping hand. And I am pretty sure that most Americans could care less what is going on with the oil spill once it leaves the evening news. Americans are so quick to complain but do nothing to help find or start a solution. Now do I agree that we need to fix the problems that are in our own country? I most definitely do, but to say that we shouldn't send aid or help other countries its beyond stupid. Especially since this countries basically makes is so that many of this countries can't provide their own food, so they are dependent on this country. America gets a lot of its wealth by preventing other countries from being able to provide for themselves. Many third world countries don't know how to plant and harvest their own crops because the United States makes them import their rice and vegetables from here. Also just like us these individuals who live in these countries are also HUMAN BEINGS, who don't deserve and shouldn't have to suffer. Because at the end of the day a lot of aid was giving to help support them and many are still living in deplorable conditions. Many are living in camps, which are barely that because they don't have tents to protect them and this is the time during their raining season, and they are also without food or water. Millions of children are without guardians, and the sad thing is simply because most people in America don't care or research enough to voice their opinions about injustices going on not only in this country but other countries around the world little will ever be done to change it. In general I am tired of hearing Americans complain about their or others situations but not doing anything to change it. Its just plain selfish and a waste of the opportunities that we have as Americans to use our voice. Waiting to see when someone will start protesting about BP or stand up to their elected officials instead of looting a gas station, which is normally what happens. smh Please EDUCATE yourself.

Okay - what is going on with the money that was raised in the first place. in addition to asking for additional help, you have put the same effort into finding out what is going on with the existing money. People are not going to keep donating if they feel like its not going to the right effective causes. Its just does not work that way. If its a poltical game, the extra donations are going to place in the same area as what was previously raised.
