Brazilian Appointed as UN Representative in Haiti

Brazil’s Ministry of Foreign Relations (MRE) received the nomination of the Brazilian Luiz Carlos Costa as Alternate Special Representative for the United Nations in Haiti. He will replace the Guatemalan ambassador Edmundo Mulet-Lesieur.

A career worker for the United Nations (UN) who has been on peace missions in Liberia and Kosovo, Luiz Carlos Costa was appointed directly by the UN secretary general, Kofi Annan.

He claimed that the Brazilian’s "experience" makes him fit for commanding the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH).

Kofi Annan also pointed to the fact that Brazil remained committed to contributing to the safety, institutional strengthening and socio-economic reconstruction of the Caribbean country. Two and a half years ago, when the peace force was established, Haiti found itself in an extremely unstable situation.

Ever since, Brazil has remained a constant presence in the country, commanding the international force, driven by the sense of regional solidarity and by cultural and ethnic affinities.

Solidarity has also justified the sending of troops from Argentina, Chile, Peru, Uruguay, Ecuador, Paraguay, Guatemala and El Salvador, among other countries.

    UN: MINUSTAH OUT OF HAITI – STOP THE HOLOCAUST OF THE HAITIAN PEOPLE
    UN : MINUSTAH – OUT OF HAITI

    SAY NO TO THE HAITIAN GENOCIDE BY THE UN SOLDIERS
    SAY NO TO THE HOLOCAUST AGAINST THE HAITIAN PEOPLE!

    January 1st 1804, Haiti officially declared its independence. By this act, the Haitians became the first free Black people, the first sovereign Black nation and the first Black country of the African Diaspora since the Black Holocaust, the one which began at the end of the XVth century by the Europeans.

    In 2004, while the Haitians were commemorating their bicentenary of independence, the former colonial powers, their progeny and sidekicks have decided to destabilize and to invade Haiti under the cover of the United Nations. As a matter of fact, on February 29th 2004, they kidnapped democratically elected Haitian president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, and deported him on a French military base in Central African Republic.

    Following the February 29th coup, the United Nations sent a stabilization force in Haiti called the MINUSTAH. Since then, under the pretext of waging war against bandits, the UN soldiers looter, humiliate, persecute, torture, rape and kill children, youths, elderly, women, men of the most impoverished neighborhoods, most particularly in Cite Soleil, of this sovereign nation of the Caribbean; which also a member of the UN.

    Those crimes against humanity, perpetrated by the UN soldiers are even more repugnant and far more revolting when we know in what circumstances this organization was created. Let us remind that it was at the end of the second great European war, also known as the second world war, and the horror of the Nazisˢ۪ concentration camps with the holocaust of millions of Gypsies, of Blacks and of Caucasian European Jews by the Nazis that this organization was created in order to prevent the world from such atrocities. It was imbued by these humanistic and humanitarian wishes that Haiti acceded to the UN making it one of the founding its members.

    Nonetheless, it is this same organization that is now persecuting, raping and mass murdering the most improvised Haitians. For instance, on July 6th 2005, December 16th, December 22nd, and December 28th 2006 the UN soldiers entered at Cite Soleil and massacred infants, children, pregnant women, men and elderly. After being previously demonized and targeted as bandits.

    Moreover, trough a great media propaganda they make us believe that the UN soldiers are in Haiti to maintain peace and order. Thatˢ۪s false! Besides the massacres, the MINUSTAH more acting as a destabilizing force in the country.

    According the United States Government Accountability Office, the cost of the UN is Haiti is about 428 $ millions per year. A complete aberration considering the role that this organization is playing in Haiti.

    The mandate of UN is due for renewal on February 15th 2007. We can already predict a wave of massacres. Faithful to their established patterns, the UN soldiers will commit mass murders under the pretext of waging war against bandits in order to maintain their occupation of Haiti. So doing, it will guarantee the renewal of the working contracts of all UN employees both civil and military as well as securing their salaries.

    Humanity cannot accept this macabre plan. We cannot agree with the fact that the UN soldiers are systematically kill the Haitians in order to keep their jobs.

    We demand an immediate STOP to the looter, the persecution, the torture, the rape and the murdering of the most improvised Haitians.

    We demand respect of the Haitianˢ۪s sovereignty.
    We demand respect of Haitiˢ۪s independence.

    We demand a STOP to the genocide and holocaust of the Haitian people.

    UN-MINUSTHA : GET OUT OF HAITI.
