They're letting the people die. We see the food and water that the world has sent to Haiti, but the World Relief Organizations who have been entrusted to distribute the world's aid to Haiti's suffering earthquake victims are letting it just stockpiled. Tell the world, PLEASE. They're letting the people die.

Where is the Diaspora? Where is the voices raised against this utter

Ezili's Response:

Kouraj my sister. The only ones we can count on are ourselves. Give me your location, we've trucked some food and water down from the DR, if some is still left, I'll try and get it to your location.

- Ratcheting up genocide in Haiti: Before earthquake the killing was by UN bullets, exclusion, NGO false benevolence, US false charity and cruel immigration laws. After Jan 12 it's all those PLUS our people are allowed to die of critical earthquake injuries, starvation, suffering, trauma and thirst



I don't know what else to say. I have no more words to tell you of the
inhumanity going on in Haiti and how USAID and the US and their NGOs have taken control of the generosity of the world and are letting the people of Haiti DIE, DIE, DIE. And in plain SIGHT there is food, there is water. Aid that the world's people have sent to assuage suffering, thirst, hunger, pain of the earthquake victims of Haiti. But it's not being distributed. The suffering is devastating. It took me days after returning from Haiti to get my hands to stop shaking. And no Haitian has the luxury of allowing trauma to paralyze. Our enemies are not taking a rest in their genocidal maneuverings for our people. No. The Chicago-boys' Disaster capitalism is on schedule.

But Haitians at home ask me to tell you they're dying. They're dying.


I say the US is blocking flights into Haiti and Haitians must go through the
Dominican Republic and if they are not US citizens and just mere legal
residents in the US, they're afraid to come, even the long way around, because the US is only allowing US citizens to LEAVE Haiti and those severely injured who will DIE within 48hours if not flown out!!! So, if they come and cannot leave, who will take care of their families in the US? This is so inhumane, so heart-stopping cruel and the evil is telling the world it's "helping Haitians." The way they helped with the search and rescue of Haitians entombed under concrete the first 48 hours when many could have been saved? What human being can ever stop hearing those cries, those moans, desperate, shrieking and then, as days went by, and then nothing.

Zili, I can still hear her. She's down there. Still alive. Put your ear to the
stone. See I told you she's still alive. But at least this time I couldn't hear
anything. I've heard in other places where frantic parents dug with their
hands. How does a mother live after that. How does a father find strength to be useful again, after that? And now, they who survived the death of every family member, or of a child, a parent, a friend, a relative, now they wish they had died too because the water, the food that could keep their bodies going, as their souls writher in remembrance, in lost, and in unbounded grief, is being withheld. What terror?
