I was in Federal District Court in New Haven, advocating for the abused Haiti children in December 2010, when Judge Arterton sentencing US pedophile and Haiti charity worker, Douglas Perlitz to nearly twenty years prison and ten years probation, said:

"If one digs a well to supply water to those who have never had water, and then that person poisons the water, was building that well a good deed?" -- (Judge Arterton statement at the sentencing of Haiti charity worker Douglas Perlitz)

Retribution, recovery and justice would find a beginning for Haitians if and when Haiti's cholera case against US-UN and their high ranking reps and special envoys is successfully brought before a Federal US District Court judge like a US Judge Arterton. It's possible.

The meaning of charitable giving was long ago personified by Haiti's Pierre Toussaint

Human rights lawyer, writer and performance poet, Ezili Danto, President of the Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network, talks to the media. Sharing the real meaning of giving as personified in the works of Haiti famous philanthropist, Catholic charitable works icon, the venerable Pierre Toussaint. Ezili Dantò explains how US charity worker Doug Perlitz named his school after the saintly Pierre Toussaint -- but like many others in the NGO industry in Haiti, failed to honor the importance of existing and historic Haiti examples of courage, honor and the good Samaritan.Photo taken while outside the Richard C.

Ezili Dantò Jazzoetry -- Ayiti:Tankou Isit/So Much like here
Farmer, Clinton, USAID's  NGO executives, none can top the example of Haiti's icon of benevolence and selflessness, not possible.
Pierre Toussaint was born into Western enslavement in Haiti. Pierre Toussaint, the most venerated Black Catholic in the world was a Haitian who helped found the first orphanage in New York city for homeless boys, back when Black folks were still enslaved in the United States. At the height of slavery in the US, Pierre Toussaint used his own monies to take care of his silly widowed "master." He was a philanthropist who EARNED, through his own labor, the money he did his charitable works with. He was piety incarnate. He was humble, loving, patient, kind, generous, self-sacrificing. He lived the Gospel of Christ.(Justice for Haiti prevailed: Perlitz going away for a long time.)

I would not wish these writings to be the only chance we get to state the Haiti case on behalf of the cholera victims.

It's like watching an accident happen in slow motion.

Kindly take the road less traveled. Help Ezili's HLLN, a Haiti-led, Haiti-capacity  building organizations -- the very first to publicly advocate for the cholera victims and push for recognition of UN culpability. Help us bring the Haiti cholera case to court to give voice to the voiceless and make a real, lasting and important difference.

We cannot get this done without support from conscious folks  around the world, who understand this simple statement, made by an indigenous group in Australia:

"If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together." -- Lily Watson

If you'd like to help with our clean water project and with HLLN's filings against the UN in Federal District Court in New York, please write us at Email address removed

Haitians broke their own chains in combat. Our liberty wasn't a charitable gift from the white settlers. Free Haitians - Ayisyen - still live. Rebels for liberty. Living in a hostile New World Mediterranean.  For centuries, attacked and invaded from one generation to the next. Forced to battle for our independence over and over again. Proudly not becoming what the Ancestors' fought against.

Throughout the centuries, evil often found a way to survive. (See petition demanding France pay back the $22 billion Independence Debt.)

Don't permit the wrongdoers, not this time, to re-image or project responsibility for their foul and filth onto the Haiti cholera victims.
