President Aristide was kidnapped by US Marines on February 29, 2004, 200 years after the Haitian Revolution defeated Napoleon’s army, and Haiti became the world’s first Black Republic and the first nation born as a result of a slave revolution. The Haitian Revolution paved the way for the abolition of slavery throughout the Americas. Haiti also assisted with the liberation of Latin America by giving refuge & supplies to Simon Bolivar.
Since the Feb. 29 coup, there are estimates as high as 10,000 Haitians killed and thousands of others in prison, jailed or tortured. US Marines have been replaced by UN forces led by Brazil. The resistance of the Haitian people has been remarkable. Get the most recent information and find out what you can do!
