An Open Letter to Ban Ki-Moon
Why Haiti Can't Forget Its Past

By RICHARD MORSE

Dear Mr Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary General of the United Nations

Thank you for the attention you have brought to the country of Haiti.
In response to your New York Times op ed piece I wanted to widen your perspective a bit.
Mr. Morse you are wasting valuable time widening a Korean bureaucrat's view on Caraibean affairs. So cool it Ram-bo.

I don't pretend to represent anyone. Yes you do, the Haitian people that you care for

.
I've been living in Haiti since 1985. I grew up in New England with my Haitian mother and my American father during the 1960's and 1970's.
Though my parents were both teachers, I'm nothing more than a musician/innkeeper. When I arrived in Haiti, the Creole pig, an indigenous Haitian pig which was the backbone of Haitian peasant life, had recently been wiped out because of a supposed threat of swine flu.
Say it Morse the carnage took place under Jean Claude Duvalier



At the same time, Leslie Delatour and "the boys from Chicago" (an economic club) were convincing everyone that Haitians ought to be importing inferior rice and sugar instead of producing it themselves.
Morse
The mistress of Preval, Elizabeth Desbrosses Delatour of Coral Gables Fla actually was married to this economist bum. He is dead now but his nefarious work of wizardry is haunting us. Another Delatour Calixte was Aristide super chulo in Justice ministry stealing the country blind.

Those three acts (Pig, sugar, and rice) have destroyed the rural lifestyle in Haiti and created overcrowding in the cities. (No Morse it started with Papa doc who fetched them to show Rockfeller he was popular when he visited Port aux Crimes) Those three acts also enriched the Gang of Eleven, say flat out the bourdon club Haiti's economic elite, (no Morse millionaire bums who lost a lot of money including Preval in a bubious island investment) who aside from profiting from all that happens in Haiti, also gave us the repressive regimes of, Henri Namphy and Gerard Latortue. (Namphy YES but Latortue NO, he gave us the garbage we have from Montana to Palais Cappish?)
Health care in Haiti; non existent. Public education in Haiti; non existent, infrastructure in Haiti; non existent, foreign aid getting to the people in Haiti; non existent. (Who you gonna call? no ghost buster Obama he is busy with his own agenda for heatth care)
How many hundred million dollars were allocated to Gonaives since Hurricane Jeanne in 2004? The last time I drove through Gonaives I couldn't tell if more than a few hundred dollars had been spent.(Did you see Latortue Pont Perdri going to nowhere, lot of money too wasted)
The textile act that you're supporting (HOPE) will further enrich Haiti's wealthy elite but will only provide an opportunity for a small part of the Haitian masses to "tread water", as most of the salaries made at these factories only cover transportation to and from work along with a meal at lunch time. If, however, you're considering providing health care, a meal and an education for at least two children for all the factory workers plus a reasonable wage, then I think you're working towards something. Otherwise, I think you may be on the wrong side of the fence.
(They refuse, Preval and his handlers to sign the miserable minimum wage law and they are killing students galore as a cover up.Morse get in your head Ban Ki can't do anything as long as Club de bourdon, Preval and his gang are renters of National Palace )
When cell phones first came to Haiti, the companies were run by Haitian elites and their representatives. The phones and phone cards were too expensive for the general population. The "Communication Club" in20Haiti was an exclusive club and meant to be that way. The "families" ( you mean Mafiosos)wanted it that way. Out of Ireland came Digicel to the rescue: inexpensive phones, low rates, superior service. Anyone who wants to communicate in Haiti can now communicate. Democracy in communication. Digicel has had so much success in Haiti that they've moved their Caribbean headquarters here. When the government saw Digicel's success they immediately wanted to raise all communication taxes. Digicel threatened to leave. (Thanks Dennis O' Brien)
If you're preaching democracy in the Haitian economy, I'll support you, but if you're preaching the Gang of Eleven gets richer and every one else gets poorer then I wouldn't even know how to support you. The Haitian people vote the governments in and the gang of Eleven buys them.(and put a moron named Preval)
The last time Mr Clinton was in town, I had the opportunity to meet him here at my home, the Hotel Oloffson. He asked me how long I've been in Haiti and I replied "22 governments" . (a little bit of show off, Morse who cares if you met Clinton alias Monica Lowensky lover)
On your recent trip, Mr Clinton asked us to forget our past and look towards the future. Haitians can't forget their past. Not even Hillary trust Bill, he took aristide back to Haiti, he was impeached by the lower house but not try by the Senate, He was saved by the black coquins, Conyers, Dodd, Rangel and co.
Aristide is a phenomenon created as a reaction to the way the Gang of Eleven likes to rule this country. Haitians have an obligation to try and forgive but we don't have the luxury to forget the trials and tribu lations of our past.
We also have a culture with deep roots (in corruption and thefts) in the past that makes this comment a bit insensitive. I understand and want to believe that you and Mr Clinton have all the best intentions for Haiti, but some times decisions are made and the potential impact of the decisions aren't well represented in the decision making process. Caca de toro means bull shit
We desperately need National Production coming out of Haiti's countryside. Perhaps President Preval is not in a position to tell you this, but its a reality. We also need to provide jobs for the urban sector. That's where your HOPE bill comes in. If your support is only for the HOPE bill everyone from the countryside is going to be moving to the capital looking for a job. Please don't forget the irrigation in the countryside, the farmers in the countryside, schools in the countryside and infrastructure in the countryside and don't forget that when you make your inevitable deals with the Gang of Eleven, they're often looking to suck Haiti dry and spend their long weekends in Miami., New York, Paris, L.A., Argentina, all over etc,
Most Haitians aren't allowed into Miami.
My personal issues are with Culture and Tourism; I'll save those subjects for another day. Hopefully, by then, it won't be too late to correct the path we're heading down. The Haedes
Yours truly,

Richard Morse
