Free Haiti's Political Prisoners: What Special UN Envoy Bill Clinton may do to help Haiti

*********************************

Before we start with the piece on What Special UN Envoy Bill Clinton may do to help Haiti, I remember that August 14, 2009 is the 218th anniversary of the ceremony that began the Haitian revolution back in 1791 and add these posts on Bwa Kayiman. At Bwa Kayiman, on August 14, 1791, the enslaved Haitian rejected bourgeois freedom and fought for universal justice and freedom. The struggle for human rights and dignity continues today... Our work testifies to this. My performances, writings and human rights advocacy are essentially about remembering Bwa Kayiman.

"If we do not remember ourselves, we shall continue to be dismembered, piece by piece...But when we remember our African Ancestors where masters of spirit, we can separate from the small creature we've been made into...undo the dismemberment (--from Rememberment: Bwa Kayiman, 2009 by Ezili Dantò of HLLN)

Recommended HLLN Links on Bwa Kayiman:

Listen to the Welfare Poets reciting (at 2:05) the Bwa Kayiman invocation or call: E, e, Mbomba! Kanga Bafyòti. Kanga Mundele. Kanga Ndòki. Kanga li!

HLLN Translation of the Bwa Kayiman Call in 1791 that began the great Haitian Revolution: Stop the black traitors (kanga bafyòti), stop the white settlers (kanga mundele). Bind their forces (kanga Ndòki). Stop them!
