Haiti: Mourning Met With Violence

Repeating Islands reports that “Haitian police say the demonstrator found slain after the clash with U.N. peacekeepers during the funeral procession for Father Gérard Jean-Juste was killed by a bullet”, while a guest writer at Wadner Pierre's blog calls the situation “an example of a global security apparatus deployed to intimidate and maintain a hegemonic elite project over some of the poorest people in the world. Today, even at funerals, the popular movement in Haiti is not allowed peace. Mourning is met with state violence.”
