- Haitian President is still reading the communism manifesto --- Nostalgic for the Soviet era, Haitian President Rene Preval says this week "The United States does not have the right to tell me not to be friend with Fidel Castro.

- Haiti's corrupt Jutistice Minister --- The just-appointed High School graduate Haitian Justice Minister Camille Leblanc has been accused by the Haitian opposition of receiving millions of dollars from jailed drug dealers in exchange for their freedom.

- We Haitians United We Stand For Democracy challenges Boston's Community Churh --- A letter written to Boston's Community Church concerning the Elian Gonzalez's saga reads: To Whom It May Concern: Yesterday, we read with great interest about your "de minimus" public demonstration in Boston this past weekend and which purpose was to press for the return of Elian Gonzalez to Cuba in both, The Boston Globe and The Boston Herald. Our writing on the Gonzalez's case has always suggests we are are opposed to his return to Cuba's communist Fidel Castro, as the old dictator continues to use ferocious repression against the Cuban people.
Since our position on the above case differs yours it will prove beneficial to all advocates of democracy that we are included in the panel discussion your church is now in the process of organizing to further press for the return of the Cuban boy to Cuba.
Attached is copy of a relevant article published in The Standard-Times and other newspapers for your review.

- Aristide-Preval's version of democracy at the expense ($3 billion) of U.S. tax payers --- As several foreign newspapers continue with their coverages of pronounced drugs trafficking in Haiti by current and most recent government officials the leftist Haitian government arrests several officials of former Duvalier's government without a warrant. Among them is an elderly lady, 91, who loses a substantial amount of blood after being severely being beaten in the head. According to several journalists based in Haiti and overseas those arrests, however, are made in an effort to turn attention away from Aristide, whom has been accused of receiving narco monies from drugs dealers. So too his probable Panama's Noriega-type indictment and arrest by the U.S. government after the election for the White House is over, late this year.
- Cocaine via Haiti on the rise, says an Associated Press article reproduced in today's Boston Globe. We (We Haitians United We Stand For Democracy) are not surprised at all. Vox Populi. Conversations with Haitian nationals across the U.S. have always revealed that smugglers have not only been increasingly shipping large amounts of narcotics, from Haiti to the U.S., but a great many of them are member of former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's "Family is Life" political party. "We would not have come to such conclusion if Mr. Aristide himself did not personally intervene on behalf of the late Roland Seide who was jailed for drugs trafficking, 1991. So too we would not perceived Aristide as a recipient of drugs proceeds if Mr. Seide did not contribute thousands of dollars to his 1990 presidential campaign," say the Haitian nationals.

- Aristide's party threats opposition --- Core members of former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's Lavalas political party warn opposition not to take their campaigns to the streets. Otherwise, they all will meet death.
- Racist Haitian President --- Leftist Haitian President, Rene Preval, who is said to choose vodka over hot coffee early in the morning, says white people are responsible for Haiti's suffering.
- Elections might not take place --- Leftist Haitian government might once again postpone elections scheduled for March 19 as the the new affluent members (nouveaux riches) few continue to display their questionable wealth in a sea of poverty. Maybe during President Rene Preval's most recent visit to Cuba Fidel Castro once again told him that elections were only for occupants of the White House, which predecessor Jean-Bertrand Aristide had on many occasions called "a devilish place." So was the The International Monetary Fund which he decried as "fund made of international criminals." "One day, one day, one day ... buy my words ... oh yes, I want you to buy my words ... ahahah ... all of these big blancs (big whites) criminals will pay dearly for their crimes against humanity."
- Haitian government threats journalists --- Haiti's Radio Metropole journalists have been threaten with arrest as they continue to criticize the Haitian government for violating the human rights of Claude Raymond who died in prison Thursday. So as the human rights of thousands of other Haitians who have been incarcerated, on the average, for more than four years without having the opportunity to appear before judge to answer "bogus" charges against themselves. (See February 10 news briefing below to learn who Mr. Raymond was.)
- Body returns to morgue against family members' wishes --- Only family members were in attendance at Claude Raymond's funeral yesterday. However, the Haitian government ordered family members to return the body to the morgue and inter it no later than 5 a.m. the next day.
- Haitian government kidnaps body --- Haitian government refuses to let family members to enter possession of Mr.Claude Raymond's body but only let them do so after intentional human rights groups intervene.

- Haitian government murders imprisoned political opponents --- Former Haitian army Lieutenant General Claude Raymond, 70, died in prison yesterday in the Capital city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Like thousands of other Haitians before and after him, falsely incarcerated for more than three and half years Mr. Raymond was never afforded the opportunity to appear before a judge so he could answer unsubstantiated charges (threat to national security) brought against him by the leftist government of Rene Preval. Upon hearing the news of his death many Boston area Haitians contend "Oh well, the government murders him." In the words of a great number of New York City Haitians "Haiti is not a democracy." "Haiti is a place where the government's primitive hatreds of anyone who is opposed to its Marxist political and economic policies are the order of the day," say Haitians residing in Montreal and a view reflecting that many other Haitian diasporas. However, as the family of Mr. Raymond mourns his death supporters of the sadistic Haitian regime compare it to that of a dog that has been killed by a car. As we gather more information about Mr. Raymond's unfortunate death so will we further inform you. Stay in touch. Return to top of page. Correspond with Yves A.
