The Kidnapping Coup
A video by Vic Sadot

The Kidnapping Coup tells the story of the US Bush-Cheney regimes overthrow of democracy in Haiti on Feb 29, 2004. A so-called rebel army was funded and equipped by the US in neighboring Santo Domingo. They invaded and shot a lot of people in several towns. Simultaneously the US invaded Haiti by air and sea and took the capitol city of Port-au-Prince. US marines broke into the Haitian Presidential Palace in the middle of the night. They kidnapped President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his wife Mildred, put them on a US jet, and flew them all the way to the Central Republic of Africa, where they were put under house arrest by a French puppet dictator. Members of the Black Congressional Caucus flew there and demanded the release of Aristide and his wife. They flew to Jamaica, but Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell made threats on sovereign Jamaica. The Aristide family is now in exile in the Republic of South Africa, and Haiti remains under military occupation by the complicit forces of the United Nations.
