Legacy of 1804 | HLLN Petition to the UN for Reparations #LOF1804









Join me this Friday at 9PM to discuss the Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network's (HLLN) petition to the UN's Secretary General demanding reparations, with co-host Hugues Girard, Jean St-Vil and callers.  Now in its 13th year in Haiti, the UN ''peacekeeping" MINUSTAH mission has been accused of child sex trafficking, rape and negligent infection of over 800,000 Haitians with cholera.

Also: Senator Youri Latortue wants MINUSTAH to help train an army, not just the police force in its last 6 months in the country. What should we make of this?

In our opening Pawol ak Mizik segment, award-winning singer TiFane will join us to discuss her return to the music scene.

Soundtrack (all songs by TiFane, in that order): Sekrè-a (Anprent, 2010)  | Ede'm Leve (Anprent, 2010) | Souke Sa (Sous La Peau, 2012)

POST-SHOW HIGHLIGHTS 

Georges Bossous Jr.
talked about Word and Action's main goal: to create a full-service rape crisis and healing center in Haiti. He also discussed the recent sets of settlements to boys in Haiti who were sexually abused by Christian missionary Douglas Perlitz. The boys, most of whom now live in the streets, were each awarded $300K by Connecticut courts but no therapy, financial management or guidance.  Bossous strongly urges that whatever future settlements are awarded by the UN or other NGO's and missionaries adopt a wholistic approach incorporating healing.

Between 00:31 and 00:50 we were joined by Patrick Handal of Skandal who discussed the context of the rise of Konpa Nouvelle Génération after the departure of Baby Doc in 1986. We listened to a soon-to-be-released remix of his 1988 hit Ti-Bway and his new single and video Santim Wo. All will be featured on an upcoming comeback album titled 50 Kòb.

Listen to the full show to hear frequent contributors Hugues Girard, Daniella Bien-Aime and Jafrikayiti weigh in on Ezili Dantò's proposed demands to the UN Secretary General. (That discussion is in the last 25 Minutes of the show.)
