    Legacy of 1804 on Draitser's CounterPunch Radio re: Haiti, UN, Clintons #LOF1804

    in Current Events

    In Eric Draitser's own words we discussed "the political situation in Haiti today, the insidious role of the Clintons, and the historical importance of the island nation as the leading edge of anti-colonial resistance. Eric and Alice explore the electoral drama unfolding in Haiti, and what it means for the future of the country. Of course, no discussion of the issue would be complete without an accounting of Hillary and Bill's criminal exploitation of the island over the last 25 years, up to and including today. The conversation also explores just why Haiti has been repeatedly subjected to the kind of repression and subjugation it has these last two centuries. All this and so much more in this wide-ranging discussion"


     


    The interview lasts one hour and 16 minutes and there is a chance I will come on live during the broadcast to take questions although I cannot yet promise it for a variety of reasons. If you don't hear me chiming in after the interview is done braodcasting around 10:20, assume that I was not able to make it -- and not for lack of trying. LONG STORY.

    Co-hosts Hugues Girard, Hans Roy and host Alice Backer of www.kiskeacity.com reviewed 6 pivotal moments in 2016 last Friday and this week we draw lessons from those moments and come up with NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS FOR 2016.

Leading up to what has been called the August 9th coup.


    -- The Apparent End of a US-Led Unipolar Word -- Signaled by Russia putting its foot down and opposing U.S. led regime-change in Syria. We go over how this all ties into Haiti.


    -- The Baltimore Protests and the rise of #BlackLivesMatter in the U.S.


    -- The Deportation of Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent from the D.R. to Haiti


    -- Developments in the fight for non-GMO seeds
