Whereas, on October 17, 1806, His Majesty Jacques 1er, Papa Dessalines
, Founder of Haiti, the nation of self-liberated Africans in the Americas, was cowardly assassinated by a horde of criminals;
Whereas, since that forsaken date, the People of Haiti have lost their guide and the governance of the Island Mother of Liberty has derailed, decade after decade;
Whereas this derailment has caused widespread confusion in the minds of people who, over several generations, have failed to grasp the nature of Haiti’s historic mission on planet earth;
Whereas said confusion can be seen manifested in the manner in which people, all over the world, remember and mark the dreadful events of October 17, 1806;
Whereas, over several decades, we’ve observed how, on October 17, confused sons and daughters of Haiti, allow themselves to partake, body and soul, in all sorts of debauchery, hands over shoulders, with the very ones who have benefitted from the October 17, 1806 patricide;
Whereas, we, Haitians, have yet to accomplish the dream of our beloved Papa Dessalines that Africans of Haiti live as brothers and sisters, sharing equitably the riches of their island while protecting it from the greed of voracious wannabe colonizers’
Whereas, the Haitian People want and need to reaffirm control over its soul and its territory;
Whereas, in the example of Marie Sainte Dédée Bazile (Défilée the Vaillant Lady),
we, Haitians, want and need to reclaim the dignity earned for us by Papa Dessalines;
We, Haitians living all over the world, decide to take concrete action towards:
1. Helping the Haitian People ask, deserve and obtain the forgiveness of Papa Dessalines, for the fact that, a set of degenerates among our ancestors either participated in or allowed the Patricide of October 17, 1806;
2. Establishing the practice whereby, on October 17, each son or daughter of Haiti shall ask forgiveness of his fellow Haitian whom s/he had offended, hurt or caused to suffer by words or by deeds;
For these reasons, we declare October 17 Haitian National Day of Atonement « Jou Mande Padon »!
In order to mark his/her remorse, the son or daughter of Haiti shall take a resolute and positive action or make a symbolic gesture that benefits the fellow Haitian to whom he had caused harm; For instance, planting a tree on his/her behalf.
From now onward, each October 17, legitimate Haitian authorities shall take every measure deemed useful or necessary to facilitate public servants, school-children, all citizens, in their efforts to adequately mark the Haitian National Day of Atonement.
We, who agree with this statement, have signed it and have dedicated ourselves to sharing it with fellow Haitians living all over the world.
