Haiti - Politic : Demonstration in memory of victims of the 1991 coup
19 years ago, September 30, 1991, the army of Haiti [dissolved in 1994] perpetuated a coup against President Jean Bertrand Aristide, making more than 3.000 victims in the population.

The National Coordination of the direct victim of 1991 was organized on the occasion of this sad anniversary, a peaceful march in Port-au-Prince to demand, once again, justice for victims. Left the local prosecutors in Port-au-Prince to lead to the Ministry of Justice and Public Security (MJSP), this march has met several hundred people. The protesters demanded the return of former President Aristide, Fanmi Lavalas leader in exile for six years. This organization found a majority, but twice excluded from the electoral race for no good reason, by the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP)

Recall that it was three years after the coup of 30 September 1991, October 15, 1994, that President Aristide could return to the country through the mobilization of Haitians at home and in the diaspora and with the help of the international community.

A little over a year later, on December 17, 1995, presidential elections are organized and brought to power René Préval [Aristide's choice].

Aristide returned to power in 2001 but was unable to complete his term, forced the departure by sectors of the international community, following the movements of violence orchestrated by armed bands formed among other ex-convicts and other current and former military.

Sectors show still today France to have been at the base of the movement anti-Aristide, owing to the fact that Aristide had claimed the restitution of the debt of Independence. But, they argue, the United States have taken control of the movement in its final phase, being named after the departure of Aristide, Gerard Latortue as prime minister opened a period of disorder and violence during the 2 years that followed.

Elections were finally scheduled February 7, 2006 that allowed the candidate René Préval to return to power on May 14, 2006 thanks to massive support of members and supporters of Lavalas.

Jean Bertrand Aristide, the former parish priest of St. Jean Bosco now lives in exile in South Africa since his second removal from power on February 29, 2004.
