POUR QUE HAITI SOIT HAITI

13-Jan-2010

A toutes celles et à tous ceux qui ont perdu des être chers, nous envoyons nos plus sincères condoléances. Nos sympathies les plus senties à toute la population Haïtienne et en particulier à ceux qui, avant les souffrances du tremblement de terre souffraient trop, tout simplement parce qu’ils/elles continuaient un combat vieux de plus de deux siècles. A celles et à ceux qui sont partis, nous leur souhaitons une paix éternelle et un accueil chaleureux de la part du Créateur et des ancêtres. Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Solidarité pour Haïti un pays où, de 1791 à 1804, des Africains se sont déchainés par fidélité vis-à-vis de leur humanité. Les Africains, en avance sur leur temps, avaient donné une leçon aux donneurs de leçons, auto-proclamés révolutionnaires, une révolution préparée, nous dit-on, par les philosophes des Lumières. Comme l’a démontré Louis Sala-Molins dans Le Code Noir, aucun de ces philosophes ne dira un seul mot sur le Code Noir lancé en 1685 et terminé en 1848.

Les dégâts causés par la nature sont peu de choses comparés à ceux créés, infligés, calculés, distillés par les parrains d’un système devenu aujourd’hui tellement prédateur que les descendants, tel des automates, ne voient rien d’autre que la charité orchestrée par une conscience déformée et dominée par une mentalité aiguisée par la recherche de comment violer l’humanité, tout en donnant à celle-ci, l’impression de l’aimer.

En ces jours qui viennent, les souffrances des suites des dégâts causés par la nature vont ensevelir encore plus profondément ceux causés par les prédateurs et leurs encenseurs. Mais la fidélité à la vérité que tout le monde est monde sera toujours plus forte que l’oubli. Cette fidélité-là ne s’abreuve pas des larmes de crocodiles versées par les correspondants qui égrènent les statistiques humanitaires accumulées par les organismes chargés de couvrir les séquelles d’un crime contre l’humanité en s’apitoyant sur le sort du « pays le plus pauvre de la Planète ». Cette fidélité-là a résisté, résiste et résistera aux tortures les plus violentes et les plus douces, imaginés par ceux qui, au nom de la liberté du capital, programment la liquidation lente de l’humanité.

Les mêmes correspondants s’apitoient sur « l’instabilité politique » de Haïti sans entrer dans les causes lointaines, proches, directes et indirectes, car à vouloir creuser, ils seraient amener à reconnaître qu’à Haïti, malgré les revers, la fidélité aux valeurs de liberté, égalité, fraternité est d’une vivacité à toute épreuve.

Face à cette épreuve incommensurable il faut que Haïti soit unie, et que le Président Jean Bertrand Aristide puisse se retrouver parmi ses compatriotes en ce moment où la solidarité la plus sentie exige un dépassement des clivages et des divisions idéologiques. Haïti a trop souffert, elle mérite de revenir à soi, de la manière la plus généreuse qui soit. Que tous ses membres se retrouvent ensemble pour reconstruire leurs vies. Jusqu’à quel point faut-il encore saigner Haïti ?

Il est difficile, dans les jours et les semaines qui viennent , de ne pas demander à ces organismes qui se parent des vêtements de l’humanitarisme pour ne pas devoir être fidèle à l’humanité, de nous dire ce qu’il est advenu à Pierre-Antoine Lovinsky qui, il y a plus de eux ans a été kidnappé parce qu’il insistait, avec persistance et patience sur le retour de Jean-Bertrand Aristide à Haïti.

LET HAITI BE HAITI

13 Jan 2010

To all those who have lost loved ones, please accept our most sincere condolences. Our deepest sympathies to the entire Haitian population and in particular to those who, prior to the earthquake were already suffering too much, simply because they were continuing a struggle started more than two centuries ago. To those who departed, we wish them eternal peace and the most warm welcome by the Creator and the ancestors.

We would like to express our solidarity for Haiti a country where, from 1791 to 1804, Africans unchained themselves in the name of fidelity to humanity. Africans, ahead of their time, had then given a lesson to those who usually assigned themselves that role, self-proclaimed revolutionaries of a revolution, we are told, prepared by the philosophers of the Enlightenment. But as Louis Sala-Molins amply demonstrated in Le Code Noir, not a single philosopher ever uttered a word on the Black Code, launched in 1685 and terminated in 1848.

The destructions caused by nature are little compared by those created, inflicted, calculated, distilled by the godfathers of a system which has become today so predatory that the biological and ideological descendants (of the enslavers), as if on automatic pilot, can do no better than react through charitable gestures orchestrated by a deformed conscience dominated by a mindset sharpened by the constant search of ways to rape humanity, while giving it the impression of loving it.

In the coming days, the suffering from the consequences of the destruction caused by nature will bury even deeper those caused by the predators and their admirers. But the fidelity to the truth that tout le monde est monde shall always be stronger than forgetfulness. That kind of fidelity does not satiate its thirst from the crocodile tears poured by media correspondents who rehash statistical tables accumulated by humanitarian organizations whose task is to cover up the outcomes of a crime against humanity by empathizing on the fate of “the poorest country of the planet”. That fidelity has resisted, is resisting and shall resist against the most brutal and softest forms of torture, imagined by those who in the name of capital’s liberty, are programming the slow liquidation of humanity.

The same press correspondents, with tears in their eyes, point out Haiti’s “political instability” while refusing to get into the root causes, direct and indirect, for if they were to dig further into such causes, they would have to recognize that, in Haiti, despite the reverses, fidelity to the values of liberty, equality, fraternity continues as vibrant as ever.

In the face of such immeasurable tragedy, Haiti can best heal by being whole again. President Jean-Bertrand Aristide must be allowed to go back among his compatriots. For it is in the face of such a tragedy that one must call for solidarity to rise above political and ideological divisions and cleavages. Haiti has suffered more than its share. It deserves to be whole again and it deserves the most generous gestures of solidarity as a Nation. Let all of its members get back together to rebuild their lives. How far shall one let Haiti bleed?

It is difficult, in the forthcoming days and weeks, not to ask those organizations which wrap themselves in humanitarian clothes in order to avoid fidelity to humanity, to let us know of the fate of Pierre-Antoine Lovinsky who had been kidnapped for calling with persistence for the return of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

Remembering Ota Benga and his spirit

Remembering Ota Benga and his spirit
Started during the Copenhagen meeting
Spurred on by the earthquake in Haiti
From December 2009 through January 2010 to July 31st
It is never too late to re-member

Where are you when we most needed you?
Had you been in Copenhagen?
You might have been able to remind those present that there once had been there, in Copenhagen, one of those forests like the one in which you were born.

You would have told them how great it felt growing in the forest living
in harmony with nature that despite all the bad talking
about romanticizing the past golden ages,
you were not a fan of a return to the Stone Age.

You might have been able to point out to the Copenhagen gang
Determined to silence humanity’s last breath
Stone Age is the destination of their gangsterism
Introduced by what they branded the Nuclear Age
A modernized way of enslaving humanity
Under the guise of modernity
Moving toward insanity

Knowing you and your allied spirits
I am sure you tried to invade their dreams
Make them see, hear, feel the daily nightmare
Leading humanity to its agonal breath
Make them remember the beauty of oxygen
A substance the gang thinks will
No longer be necessary in a world
Where death will be called life

Thinking of you is also about thinking of those who have been swallowed by a system which thrives on erasing humanity and its memory. Remember those Inuit you were sitting next to in Saint Louis in 1904? Well, their forest is the snow and ice of the Arctic Circle. It is melting so fast that the polar bears have lost their bearings and are dying fast. Yes, in those months were you felt too cold, for them it was quite warm, but you both had to suffer because the event was about demonstrating the superiority of the ones who sent for you, the same ones who tried to re-instate slavery in Santo Domingo, the same ones who were celebrating 100 years of the Louisiana Purchase.

Remembering you is to remember all of those who have tried as hard as they could to make the believers and fundamentalists of western superiority that they are not better or worse than any other member of humanity. For trying so hard, many of them have been punished in all kinds of ways: say, like Mumia Abu Jamal, one of your admirers.

Mumia Abu Jamal

There are lots of Abu Jamal, but there is only one Mumia Abu Jamal. They have been jailed because they could not keep quiet about what was wrong in how Europeans kept terrorizing blacks and native Americans into “staying in their place”. Like many others whose names we do not even remember because their particular cause has been painted with taboo colors, they asserted a truth too loudly, too unflinchingly. A truth so simple that most children of the terrorizing white-race-superiority-fundamentalists would understand it and repeat it to their frowning parents. So simple is the truth that left on their own these children played without any problems with their black friends and their native American friends, and love to hear each other stories.

Now and then one hears about “American Values”. But the problems with MAJ is that his spelling of these values is precisely about the unity of humanity and not the superiority of one group or the other. Long before it became a political fashion, they were calling for a multi polar world. If serious that could have been a good way to remember that polar bears are part of humanity, rush to their rescue, and not just wring fingers and lament about their fate.

What MAJ did was trespassing over the invisible line which says that certain truths can only be articulated by those with financial and political power, and/or approved by them. The line is guarded by a police force that does not even have to be visible. Centuries of predation without limit have led its high priests to make predators of those who were not made to become so. No wonder it is easier to submit, lie down than stand up and be eaten up.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Pierre-Antoine Lovinsky

Like Makandal, most people seem to have forgotten who was Pierre-Antoine. Makandal fought in Santo Domingo in the 1750s. He was renown for killing (through poison) the slave and plantation owners. In particular those, one may surmise, who violated one of the articles of the Black Code prohibiting the torture of slaves. Eventually, he was caught and killed with the kind of vengeance one has learned to expect from those whose truths are contradicted by the simple affirmation of the dignity of humanity. He was tortured to death. Something that was specifically forbidden by article 42 of Le Code Noir.

A Royal Ordinance of October 1786 stipulated that the masters who would mutilate their slaves to the point of death would be punish with death. Yet in March 1788, one so-called Lejeune famously known for his cruelty, decided to put to death slaves who were accused of having poisoned other slaves. With the help of a surgeon by the name of Magre he put 4 of them to death by burning with pine tree torches the feet, then the legs and finally the thighs. Then he seized upon two women and began to torture them. A group of slaves denounced him, but nothing was done to him despite article 42.

Pierre-Antoine Lovinsky’s problem was to keep calling for the return of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to Haiti. He kept at it until those who could not longer hear his calling, decided to silence him, kidnapped him and put him away. That was in August 2007. No one seems to know for sure whether he is alive or not. One would have thought that the International Red Cross might have been moved to request to see him, but those who did the kidnapping do not operate according to the rules of International Law, since they are convinced that they are a law on to themselves. To the ears of those who wanted Aristide out of their hair, Lovinsky’s relentlessness must have been felt like poison. Could it be that these silencers of Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine belong to the same species that would love to see humanity disappear forever, seeking quietness at all cost even if it means smothering the little baby crying for her mother’s breast. Armed to the teeth, this species will not let go. One day, though, it will be afraid of its own shadow. Will it then look for other Lovinskys, to calm its nerves?

We must never forget those they keep pressuring to forget. Never.

Never let go,
always, against all odds,
keep going so goes the lessons,
and they keep coming
from all corners of the Planet,
but often times history gets filtered
and/or refined to the point of losing
all its most crucial nutrients.
As goes with the food processing industry,
so goes with the industrialization of history.
The history gets so refined as to lose
all the ingredients which keep it alive.
So with humanity
Integrity
means respecting every tiny
member
every baby

In Copenhagen, there was the possibility
of remembering all of those who fought wars meant to save humanity,
meant to make humanity one,
meant to heal from competitiveness,
starting with the violence against Mother Earth.
Therein seems to lie the difficulty,
it is not just about the violence against Mother Earth,
it is about violence against all the mothers, mothers to be,
from the most tender age.

Copenhagen brought members of humanity from all corners of the Planet, but the Planet does not have corners in which those without shame could hide and present their arrogance under the cloak of
Piety, humility.

Copenhagen sounds like a bad dream.
Could it be that the battle was not won precisely
because humanity
has been so fragmented by all kinds of weaponry
that it has the greatest of difficulty
re-membering its dis-membered parts.

Recovering from learning to split the atom
Looks more and more
Like an impossibility
Because from Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Survivors never included
the pulverized or their ashes
just an occasional imprint on a wall
the remaining shadow left
by the power of a thousand suns.

Let Re-membering the dis-membered
Become the mantra never to be forgotten.
