Human Rights Watch 2010 Report on Haiti

In its 2010 world survey report, Human Rights Watch (HRW) has a chapter on Haiti that displays a disregard for human rights in several important areas.

It states that the Haitian government's ability to safeguard human rights was "weakened" by the earthquake, implying this was a practice or goal in the first place. There is no reference to the fraudulent, selection-election of November 28, 2010.

The report states, "MINUSTAH, which has been present in Haiti since 2004, has played a prominent role in increasing stability and protecting human rights in the country..." This description is laughable to anyone familiar with Haiti’s recent history. Coming from a serious human rights organization, it is reckless disinformation.

MINUSTAH became "present" in Haiti following a 2004 coup d'etat against the country's elected president and government. The force was established by the UN Security Council at the behest of the foreign governments that helped finance and orchestrate the coup, notably the United States, Canada and France. The HRW report makes no reference to the serious human rights violations of MINUSTAH, notably the violent assaults on poor neighbourhoods in Port au Prince in July and December 2005, as documented by filmmaker Kevin Pina and other international observers and human rights agencies, nor its other assaults on popular democratic forces.

Soldiers from MINUSTAH were responsible for the introduction of cholera to Haiti in October 2010. This is not mentioned in the report.
