Everyone agrees that Haiti needs financial resources...everyone agree crimes, including grand theft, were committed against this impoverished population...everyone know who stole the loot, when and how.
Everyone discusses intelligently concepts of human rights, justice, rebuilding...provided, the coversation remains in the abstract.
Once the conversation turns to concrete terms, seeking real means to REPAIR the damage done (REPARATIONS), to make RESTITUTION of the stolen financial resources... all intelligence flies off the windows.
Suddenly, basic justice becomes rocket science and the preachers themselves become death and mute. It's too complicated...it's too far in the past....
April 09, 2010 — France24 covers Nicolas Sarkozy's historic visit to Haiti on Feb17 2010. Guests include Olivette Otele and Jafrikayiti (Jean Saint-Vil) discussing the thorny issue of the Charles X Ransom - over 90 million Gold Francs (Est. current value $40 Billion U.S) collected at gunpoint by various French governments from the Haitian state, between 1825 and 1947. France sought and received the support of other self-described "white nations" of the day; In particular, Thomas Jefferson's USA. During that period, the Republic of Haiti, which for the longest time remained the lone state in the Americas where kidnapped, enslaved and displaced Africans enjoyed freedom, withstood multiple similar attacks from the USA, Spain and Germany. Saint-Vil argues that, in 2010, French apology for this particular international crime of extortion would be meaningless and hypocritical unless accompanied by a prompt and unconditional return of the $40B ransom. Haiti, he argues, obviously needs financial resources to build the state and physical infrastructure it has not erected over the past centuries. Otele, disagrees....find out why.....and what is your take on the issue?
