As of this moment, we have not heard from or seen a picture of Pres. Aristide. US soldiers were seen kidnapping Aristide at 2 a.m. tihs morning and putting him on a US helicopter.
Our money which we need for housing, schools, medical care and public transportation is being used to murder the people of Haiti so as to maximize the profits of the capitalist corporations.
US helicopters are whirling over the heads of the people of Haiti at this very moment. They are certainly not stopping the bloodbath on the ground, paid for with our tax dollars.
