The UN’s Christmas present to Haiti -- Assault on Sité Soley
central america / caribbean | imperialism / war | press release Tuesday December 26, 2006 06:49 by Haiti Action haitiaction at yahoo dot com
A pre-dawn, heavy-caliber assault on the men, women and children of Cite Soleil
Urgent action alert from the Haiti Action Committee - December 24, 2006
Initial press accounts reported at least 40 casualties, all civilians. According to community testimony, UN forces flew overhead in helicopters and fired down into houses while other troops attacked from the ground with Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs). People were killed in their homes. UN troops from Brazil, Chile, Uruguay and Bolivia took part in the all-day siege, backed by Haitian police. UN soldiers once again targeted the Bois Neuf and Drouillard districts of Cite Soleil -- scene of the July 6th massacre.
Enough is enough! Join us in denouncing the ongoing UN terror attacks on the Haitian people!
Now is the time for people in the US and throughout the world to step up our solidarity efforts with the people of Haiti. Our protests, calls and letters after the UN massacre in Cite Soleil on July 6th, 2005 -- and the many UN attacks since then -- need to be updated, expanded, intensified. Demand an end to the UN’s repeated, brutal assaults on this besieged community.
Email or fax the UN official below. Keep it brief.
*** Denounce the massive, heavy-caliber assault on the citizens of Cite Soleil by UN occupation forces on Dec. 22, 2006.
*** Demand reparations for the victims and their families.
*** Demand prosecution of the UN officials, commanders and soldiers responsible for this latest UN atrocity in Haiti.
