Stand Shoulder to Shoulder with the People of Haiti

–When asked “How are they surviving?” Haitian journalist Wadner Pierre responded, “Well, they’re all sharing. That’s what we do. That’s the way Haitians are.” (January 16)streaming film Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

–“The city has seen little violence, despite persistent fears that shortages of food, water and shelter will spark unrest.” (January 21)

–Photograph of a white female US Navy medic cradling and feeding a dehydrated Haitian child. (January 21)

I thank my local newspaper, the Contra Costa Times, for including the above images in its coverage of the disastrous January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti. These images are vital because they reflect our true human nature that is too often clouded by a pernicious deep structure.

In 2005, upon first hearing about hurricane Katrina on radio newscasts I thought in my head how tragic it was. But when I saw pictures of Katrina, showing how aid and rescue efforts had been needlessly slow to reach poor, African American neighborhoods amid unrealized fears of widespread looting and unrest, my heart was gripped with terror. I felt a visceral pain when faced with the reality that the deep structure of racism on which my nation was founded still persists, despite the abolition of slavery, passage of the Civil Rights Act, and the awakening consciousness of so many people of all races that we truly are equal.

This deep structure is built on the notion that poor people of African descent are less than human, to be exploited economically in good times and to be feared in times of crisis. It is a structure designed to protect the wealth of a few, at the expense of our common humanity.

After the earthquake struck Haiti, my heart was again gripped with terror to see more evidence of this deep structure: When I heard that the US response prioritized “security” over urgent humanitarian assistance; when I read that the US military took control of the Port-au-Prince airport and turned away airplanes carrying medical field hospitals; when I saw that donations of water, food and supplies were not reaching many affected areas at all and some only after thousands who survived the initial quake had needlessly died of infection and dehydration.

The deep structure of racism has infected much of the media that shapes people’s consciousness, but as our eyes and hearts are opened, the outpouring of solidarity at a basic human level emerges. As soon as we get to know people of different races and circumstances on a personal level, the deep structure already begins to crumble. I see people in my home town of Richmond, California breaking down the deep structure every day by seeing their neighbors as brothers and sisters, challenging the negative stereotypes of our city that this structure perpetuates. Ever since I was a teenager and first sensed the existence of this structure, I, a white woman, have been working on breaking it down within myself.

People all over the world are giving generously without hesitation to support those suffering in Haiti, and aid workers are rushing there to help. That’s what people do. It’s human nature. I suspect that individual soldiers, as evidenced from the photograph mentioned above, would rather care for people immediately than be ordered to guard shipments of supplies bottle-necked at the airport. Long before the earthquake, I learned about hundreds of people-to-people partnerships between local groups in the US and Haiti to collaborate on schools, clinics, and other constructive projects. Cuban doctors who have been in Haiti for years are joining Haitian doctors round the clock treating earthquake victims with minimal supplies (though the US military has turned away additional Cuban doctors who want to come). Everyone I know who travels to Haiti and becomes personally acquainted with Haitians and their invincible spirit invariably falls in love with them, as did I.

The earthquake is very personal for me because I first started to learn about Haiti and her history shortly before the political earthquake of the February 29, 2004 coup d’etat in which the US helped topple the vastly popular and democratically elected government of the Lavalas party, kidnapping President Aristide and banishing him from the Western Hemisphere. I visited Haiti twice since the coup and have many friends there who are struggling under UN military occupation to maintain strong networks to dismantle the deep structure of racism, asserting their dignity as human beings who care for their communities.

A tiny segment of Haiti’s population is fabulously wealthy, while the vast majority are desperately poor. Ever since the poor had the nerve to stand up for themselves and break the shackles of slavery and colonialism 206 years ago, the US government has colluded with the wealthy few to maintain this gross inequality, most recently taking the form of ensuring an abundant pool of cheap labor for offshore assembly plants.

Under the leadership of twice elected President Aristide, Haiti moved in the direction of improving the lives of the poor. Since the coup, he remains exiled in South Africa, ready to return home but not allowed to by the US controlled Haitian government. Why is Aristide so often demonized by media pundits? Is it because he challenges the Haitian elite’s contempt for the common people and invites them to stand shoulder to shoulder with blacks rather than get down on their knees with the whites? Is it because he calls for everyone to have a place at the table, including poor, rich, black, brown and white?

Now more than ever, the aftermath of Haiti’s earthquake beckons us to further dismantle the deep structure of racism that violates humanity, and stand shoulder to shoulder with our Haitian sisters and brothers. To this end we must insist that delivery of vital earthquake aid be accelerated, that Haiti’s foreign debt be cancelled and Haitians given the wherewithal to rebuild their own country on their own terms, that foreign military occupiers be removed, that the election ban on Haiti’s popular Lavalas party be lifted and that Aristide be allowed to return.

It’s time for the wealthy to get in touch with their true human nature and do a better job of sharing the resources of the earth. We must build new structures that join us together in embracing the Haitian motto “tout moun se moun”–Haitian Kreyol for “every person is a human being”.

Contextualizing the failure at Copenhagen

5 Jan 2010
Ever since the beginning of the so-called “Financial” Crisis and, especially, because of how it was resolved, it was obvious that the Climate crisis was going to follow the same pattern, i.e. those most responsible for the climatic crisis would be absolved and they would end up dictating what they consider to be the solution.

There is a deep reluctance, especially among the countries which have most benefited from the history of capitalism, to come to terms with the fact that the system has come to its useful end, if it ever had one. Some of the reasons are obvious, others less so. From the perspective of African history ever since slavery, what happened and what did not happen in Copenhagen was predictable. From the abolition of slavery to the end of colonial rule, the scenario has been the same. Make a lot of noise around cosmetic changes and make sure that the structural relations are maintained, at every necessary transition.

When it is not in the interest of the big powers (whether enslaving, colonizing or globalizing) to resolve any given issue, the tendency will be to either look away, or to offer solutions which do not lead to a critical examination of the responsibility of these big powers. One of the most recent cases was the Rwanda genocide. From 1990, it was known that a genocide was being prepared. Nothing was done and even when it began to unfold, the little which could have been done was not done. The calculations of the big powers at the Conference in Copenhagen were that doing the least (economically and financially) would also be the best political solution. In the process, the unfolding predictable failure has had at least one positive result, as Bolivian President Evo Morales pointed out. The rich countries failed to carry out what they had been accustomed to do over the centuries, i.e. let the least industrialized countries bear the burden of the necessary changes.

Economically and politically, the calculations were framed by an understanding of economics and politics belonging to the histories of imperial triumphs going back to Atlantic slavery. From that history and the various transitions (from slavery to colonial occupation, to colonialism, to neo-colonialism, to apartheid to post-apartheid, to globalization), the most economically advanced countries have learned to survive the transitions by organizing themselves so as to continue to be the beneficiaries of the political and economic system which must continue under their control. These countries have learned to be accountable only to themselves, with impunity.

In the few cases where people sought to do the transition on their terms, e.g. Santo Domingo/Haiti, the punishment was as severe as possible, with the intention of making sure that no one would be tempted to follow the same kind of road. For more than 200 years, Haitians have paid the price for that daring victory over the slave masters. Between the French revolution of 1789 and the Haitian one in 1791-1804, the most radical one was the latter. One might even think that such a revolution might be considered worth preserving as one of the things Humanity can be most be proud of. But the twin syndromes of discovery and abolition continue to dictate that the “discovered” (Africans, Native Americans, the poor, immigrants, unemployed) can never ever discover anything, let alone, freedom, equality, solidarity. For the Africans who had been enslaved, freeing themselves without any outside assistance and, on top of it, defeating the three biggest military powers of the time, constituted a punishable offence of the highest degree.

Looking at Copenhagen with the eyes of those who have been most predated upon, the lessons, at least since the end of WWII are explicit and clear. The context in which the world finds itself today is one of great danger of extinction of large segments of, if not all of, humanity. Concerning humanity, the ruling clique of the US reads its own history from the perspective of what it has managed to get away with. To this day, it has managed to do so with impunity. It is possible to look at the US refusal to sign international Agreements from its own history of signing, and then, not respecting such agreements, as it has done with its Indian populations. The lesson from that experience has been that it is better not to sign, rather than pedal back and be accused of perfidy (or be called “forked tongues” as the Native Americans did). It has refused to be part of the ICC. It has refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol. The list is long. The US, especially since WWII, would like to see the price of its participation as one which puts it above any other power. It must only be accountable to itself.

Metaphorically speaking, the behavior of the US ruling clique is no different from that of a criminal who manages to get away with murder. The retained lesson will be to engage in the same, or worse, practice since such behavior has yielded high returns. For example, there are at least two ways to read the manner in which WWII ended: the American way or Humanity’s way. From the former, America saved the world from evil. The political disappearance of the Soviet Union has facilitated the erasure of the fact that 22 million Soviets (today’s Russians) died in the process of fighting Germany, Japan and Italy. From Humanity’s standpoint, what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki (August 6 and 9 1945) cannot be erased and explained away as a “faster way of ending the war, and saving lives”. If Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not a Crime Against Humanity, they certainly were a War Crime. But, as is well known, history gets to be written by the victors. For the sake of maintaining the memory of the life principle alive and well, it is worth quoting from Jennifer Scarlott’s review of Kai Bird’s and Lawrence Lifschultz’s edited book (Hiroshima’s Shadow):
In a perspicacious article for the September 1945 issue of politics, a mere month following the bombings, Dwight Macdonald wrote, “… the Bomb produced two widespread and, from the standpoint of the Authorities, undesirable emotional reactions in this country: a feeling of guilt at ‘our’ having done this to ‘them’ and anxiety lest some future ‘they’ do this to ‘us’… The Authorities have therefore made valiant attempts to reduce the thing to a human context, where such concepts as Justice, Reason, Progress could be employed. Such moral defenses are offered as: the war was shortened and many lives, Japanese as well as American, saved, etc…. The flimsiness of these justifications is apparent: any atrocious action, absolutely any one, could be excused on such grounds.” (p. 264-5)
Another voice heard from is Mary McCarthy’s. In a withering critique of John Hersey’s famous 1946 New Yorker piece on the atom bomb, McCarthy declared, “…what it (the Hersey piece) did was to minimize the atom bomb by treating it as though it belonged to the familiar order of catastrophes — fires, flood, earthquakes — which we have always had with us… The interview with the survivors, is the classic technique for reporting such events — it serves well enough to give some sense, slightly absurd but nonetheless correct, of the continuity of life. But with Hiroshima, where the continuity of life was, for the first time, put into question, and by man, the existence of any survivors is an irrelevancy; and the interview with the survivors is an insipid falsification of the truth of atomic warfare. To have done the atom bomb justice, Mr. Hersey would have had to interview the dead.” (p. 303)

From the victor’s corners (which is part of humanity) there will arise voices which do justice to humanity. Coming back to Copenhagen, though, will the victors ask themselves which kind of victory are they looking for. What is the point of winning a race to dig humanity’s grave?

In order not to be part of the Kyoto Protocol, George Bush stated that the American Way of Life (AWoL) is non negotiable. But, again and for the record, how, from humanity’s sake should one assess the AWoL? The path of satisfying, first and above all, this AWoL, was initiated with a twin genocide, of Native Americans and Africans. Since there has been no accountability for this and since, especially from the end of WWII, the US has been able to present itself successfully as the unblemished defender of Western “values”, it becomes difficult if not impossible to bring the US to look at its AWoL as a road paved with good intentions, creating hells wherever it has been asserted militarily, and or, through pliant dictators.

The voices which have been raised “to save the Planet” are, generally, coming from the same corners (not all) which, in all the transitions from slavery to today, have been ignored. There is a conviction, from the previous transitions, that the same behavior will yield positive results. This time, however, there is a difference, even if members of the ruling clique refuse to acknowledge it. The progressive voices present in Copenhagen must have felt that the financial crisis and the manner in which it was “resolved” might temper those who brought about the financial crisis, in the first place.

But the so-called solution to the financial crisis had the exact opposite effect: it provided confirmation to those who caused the crisis and then profited from it, that the only way to organize the economy across the world was their way, and not by listening to “prophets of gloom and doom”. As some prominent members of the US delegation kept insisting, it was important to “look forward”, i.e. the AWoL.

To summarize. The AWoL has been achieved through a way of organizing the economy, its own and the world, as if the Planet is not finite. Spreading death does not matter as long as lives are saved within the US geographical borders. The parameters which were forged through the twin genocide of earlier periods of US history have continued to assert themselves, and have now become the gospel of the so-called health industry in the US. Some writers have pointed out that there is a close connection between the financial crisis and the health crisis, but, again, such “discoveries” must be kept out of order because the order of business is to make profit.

There is a way out, but it will have to come out through the firm and uncompromising assertion that life is sacred, whether it is the life of a poor, homeless person or that of the most powerful CEO. Will sanity prevail so Humanity may prevail and save itself from between the rock and the hard place so well captured by Aimé Césaire in the following two lines:

We have arrived in a tower of silence
Where we have become prey and vulture
