Haiti: Aid racket increases suffering



Ashley Smith 27 February 2010


On February 7, thousands of Haitians marched in the Port-au-Prince suburb of Petionville to protest their desperate circumstances and the failure of aid delivery.


Some NGOs, such as Partners in Health, have done and are doing amazing work to provide services for quake victims. But the catastrophe in Haiti has revealed the worst aspects of the US government and the NGO aid industry.




The US has used its “relief” operation to disguise a military occupation of Haiti,


 

  intended to prevent a flood of refugees reaching the US,


De gauche à droite Georges Sassine, président de l


 impose even greater sweatshop development


and


signal to the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean that it aims to reassert its power in the region.

The NGO-centred aspect of the US response is an important part of its strategy. Instead of aiding the Haitian state and building up its capacity to handle the crisis,


 the US is funneling US$379 million in aid through its own agencies and then through NGOs.



Associated Press said on January 27:

“Each American dollar roughly breaks down like this:

42 cents for disaster assistance,

 

 33 cents for U.S. military aid,

nine cents for food,

 

nine cents to transport the food,

 

 five cents for paying Haitian survivors for recovery efforts,




 just less than one cent to the Haitian government ...”

The big NGOs, which are getting the bulk of the money, see the crisis as an opportunity to raise funds and their profile.



 

Thus, instead of a centralised relief effort, something only a sovereign state could provide,

 


 

the NGOs are competing with one another, literally branding areas they serve with their logos. ...

 


 

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, Haiti antrave

The Pentagon said Thursday the cost to build its next-generation fighter jet has doubled to as much as $113 million per plane since 2001.


According to congressional watchdogs at the Government Accountability Office, plans to buy some 2,450 aircraft will cost the military $323 billion — almost half of what the Pentagon spends each year, including on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.


With the price of one JET Fighter that kill people we can build house for all the poor people of Cité Soleil. One Billion dollars for Haiti we can fix the lives of many human being. AMERICA is bullsh*t!

Haïti


L'aide se fait rare


Haïti - L'aide se fait rare



Mise à jour : 05/04/2010 13h35


Trois mois après le séisme meurtrier en Haïti, la distribution de l'aide se fait toujours au compte-gouttes. C'est ce que déplorent plusieurs personnes, dont le réalisateur québécois Pierre Côté, qui revient tout juste d'un périple là-bas.



Pierre Côté a passé trois semaines à Haïti. Il a fait le tour des camps de réfugiés de la capitale Port-au-Prince.

Tout près du palais présidentiel,


5 000 familles sont laissées pour compte. Elles n'ont reçu aucune aide, même pas de l'eau ou de la nourriture.


La distribution de l'aide alimentaire, qui est contrôlée par les soldats américains, ne semble pas fonctionner.


La semaine dernière, la communauté internationale s'est engagée à donner dix milliards de dollars pour reconstruire le pays.


On compte 900 organismes internationaux sur le terrain.

Plus de détails suivront.

Haïti:


Malgré tout ce qui a été accompli en Haïti, les travailleurs humanitaires ont mauvaise presse ces temps-ci, et cela dépasse largement les révélations de Radio-Canada sur la Croix-Rouge en Indonésie. À Montréal, il y a quelques semaines, le premier ministre haïtien a eu des mots très durs à l'égard du travail humanitaire. Et c'est sans compter sur les coopérants qui se critiquent à qui mieux mieux entre eux. La question se pose: à la prochaine catastrophe, envoie-t-on de l'argent?

«Trop d'amour nuit», a lancé une Haïtienne en plein colloque sur la reconstruction d'Haïti à Montréal, il y a quelques semaines.

Les travailleurs humanitaires, a-t-elle dit, «se sont rués comme des mouches sur un cadavre». «Ça fait depuis combien d'années que ces gens nous aident? Des décennies! On nous humilie en tant que peuple.»

Cri du coeur d'une Haïtienne de Montréal un peu déconnectée des immenses besoins sur le terrain? En tout cas, cette indignation trouve beaucoup d'échos. «Ça fait 12 ans que je suis médecin en Haïti, raconte André-Paul Vénor. Que dire des ONG venues faire un "show de bedaine" à Port-au-Prince et qui se targuent au retour d'avoir sauvé les malheureux de la Terre? Le gouvernement haïtien dit tout le temps oui au premier aventurier qui débarque et qui se fait passer pour un humanitaire ou pour un agent de développement.»


«Il y a trop de touristes humanitaires qui cherchent désespérément à se mettre une victime sous le stéthoscope»,


 se plaint à son tour Nago Lambert, président de Médecins du monde Suisse et médecin à l'hôpital Sainte-Justine.

Il évoque notamment cette ONG néerlandaise qui a planté une tente au coeur de Port-au-Prince pour y faire des accouchements et des césariennes. Le problème? «La tente, elle était plantée tout juste devant une clinique d'obstétrique déjà en place et fonctionnelle!», se désole le Dr Lambert.

«L'urgence, c'est un métier,


poursuit-il. On ne peut pas, sous le coup de l'émotion, débarquer quelque part et faire n'importe quoi. Combien d'amputations ont été faites sans raison?»

Le premier ministre Jean-Max Bellerive, de passage à Montréal, n'était pas plus positif. «J'ai peur que les enfants, les adolescents attendent le camion qui va passer avec l'eau, qu'ils attendent le camion qui va arriver avec la nourriture. Il faut donner un minimum aux gens, mais il ne faut pas tuer l'idée du travail.»

Outre-Atlantique, sur les ondes de France Info, Jean-Yves Jason, maire de Port-au-Prince, a prononcé le mot «catastrophe» en février pour évoquer non pas le tremblement de terre,


mais la désorganisation totale du travail humanitaire qui a suivi!


Un travailleur humanitaire de retour d'Haïti qui a demandé l'anonymat - c'est un bien petit milieu, fait-il remarquer - est rentré scandalisé. Ce qu'il a vu?


Des rivalités ahurissantes entre Américains et Français,


 au point où des médecins de «clans adverses» refusaient de se prêter des appareils médicaux. Des organismes sont arrivés sauvagement à écarter les Haïtiens en poste, au point de tenir toutes les réunions de travail en anglais, langue que les Haïtiens maîtrisent souvent mal.


«Plusieurs consultants ou experts arrivent avec des solutions toutes faites. Les décisions se prennent plus dans des hôtels de luxe que les deux pieds dans la réalité.»

Rivalités entre organismes

La pagaille est bien antérieure au tremblement de terre.


Une collègue journaliste, de passage à Haïti il y a deux ans, se souvient des rivalités épiques d'alors entre les organismes humanitaires, des rivalités si vives que les gens d'un organisme tentaient de la convaincre de ne surtout pas faire d'entrevues avec l'organisme «rival».

Plus que de «coopération» internationale, elle se souvient surtout de chicanes de clochers et de combats de petits coqs.

Contre toute attente, Carine Guidicelli, directrice des communications au Centre d'étude et de coopération internationale (CECI) qui vient tout juste de rentrer d'Haïti, ne s'inscrit pas en faux contre ces affirmations et partage l'indignation de nos interviewés.

Les coopérants n'en sont pourtant pas à leur premier tremblement de terre. Ils en ont vu d'autres, et d'autres ouragans, des cyclones et des tsunamis. «En dehors des urgences, entre les catastrophes, il faudrait qu'on arrive à se parler. On doit se poser des questions, et vite», dit Mme Guidicelli.

«Les gens ont faim, les gens sont malades, ça devrait être simple, non?» demande Pierre Minn, qui prépare un doctorat en anthropologie à l'Université McGill sur l'aide internationale médicale et qui a passé deux ans et demi en Haïti.

Ça devrait être simple, mais ça ne l'est pas. C'est que les organismes humanitaires ne sont pas seulement motivés par le désir de faire du bien, relève-t-il. Chacune veut sa visibilité médiatique, sa gloriole. «Chacun a l'impression d'être le premier à débarquer, et le réflexe de chacun est de tout reprendre de zéro, tout le temps. Les organismes veulent bâtir leur propre hôpital, leur propre clinique. C'est pourquoi il n'est pas rare de voir deux hôpitaux ou deux cliniques être bâtis un à côté de l'autre... Une question d'ego, mais aussi d'autonomie: chacun veut faire les choses à sa façon.»

C'est qu'il y a, poursuit-il, course à la visibilité pour récolter le plus de fonds possible. C'est à qui recevra la subvention de l'ACDI, celle de la Fondation Gates...

Pas joli, joli, tout ça. Alors, on donne ou pas? Carine Guidicelli, du CECI, dit évidemment qu'il faut encore donner aux organismes, mais après avoir fait des recherches. «Avant de faire un don, il faut se poser des questions. L'organisme était-il présent dans le pays avant la catastrophe? Depuis longtemps? A-t-il des partenaires crédibles sur place?»

C'est aussi ce que prône le Dr Réjean Thomas, cofondateur de Médecins du monde Canada, bien désolé de ce que la Croix-Rouge ait été éclaboussée en Indonésie. «De la corruption, il y en a partout, y compris chez nous, alors qu'on a en main tous les mécanismes pour la prévenir! En situation d'urgence, dans un pays pauvre, c'est sûr que la corruption a plus de chance de s'installer. Je continue néanmoins de penser qu'il se fait beaucoup plus de bien que de mal. Il faut donner, en choisissant un organisme fiable.»

La loi HOPE devient HELP

Le congrès américain a approuvé la semaine dernière une nouvelle loi baptisée (HELP), Haiti Economic Lift Program, une extension de la loi HOPE qui vise à favoriser la relance de l'économie haïtienne sérieusement touchée par le séisme du 12 janvier.

Le document qui a été présenté au congrès américain, en avril dernier et ratifié au cours de ce mois, prévoit une extension de la loi Hope ( Hemispheric Opportunity Through Partnership Encouragement).

La loi HELP a pour objectif de prolonger jusqu'à 2020, la Loi HOPE I et II votée en 2008. Elle facilite la libre rentrée sur le marché américain des vêtements confectionnés en Haïti.




Selon les responsables de la commission tripartite de mise en œuvre de la loi HOPE, (CTMO-HOPE), l'approbation de cette loi par le congrès représente un signal très fort de l'engagement américain dans l'appui à la reconstruction du pays et aussi pour les investisseurs internationaux.

« Avec cette nouvelle loi, la (CTMO-HOPE) dispose d'un élargissement des avantages et d'un argument extrêmement attractif pour les investisseurs intéressés par l'assemblage », informe la commission dans une note de presse rendue publique.



Elle croit également que cette décision pourrait créer très rapidement des milliers d'emplois, dans l'économie haïtienne et créer une impulsion pour la reconstruction du pays.

This history needs to be confronted now,





because it threatens to repeat itself.



Haiti's creditors are already using the desperate need for earthquake aid to push for a fivefold increase in garment-sector production, some of the most exploitative jobs in the country.



Haitians have no status in these talks, because they are regarded as passive recipients of aid, not full and dignified participants in a process of redress and restitution.

Georges Sassine soutient que HELP contribuera au développement économique d'Haïti






L'industriel haïtien Georges Sassine anticipe de nombreuses retombées positives pour l'économie haïtienne grâce à la nouvelle législation américaine HELP. Cette loi, qui est en réalité une troisième version de HOPE, permet de faire passer la surface de production de 70 à 200 millions de mètres carrées.

HELP, adoptée par les congresmen afin de favoriser le développement d'Haïti après le violent séisme, attirera à coup sur d'importants investisseurs étrangers. De nombreux avantages sont offerts aux entreprises textiles implantées en Haïti. Entre autres une diminution des taxes sur les sous vêtements et les jeans. Les droits de douanes avaient atteint 31 % ces dernières années.

Georges Sassine est aujourd'hui optimiste en ce qui concerne le développement de l'industrie textile d'Haïti. Il croit que près de 250 000 emplois directs pourront être créés au cours des prochains mois.


 L'ex-directeur du CMO HOPE signale que les trois premières entreprises ayant annoncé leur implantation pourront générer 150 000 emplois directs.



Le gouvernement haïtien devra également jouer sa partition pour favoriser le développement du secteur.




Les autorités haïtiennes ont prévu de créer plusieurs zones de développement économique au cap Haïtien, au Nord de Port-au-Prince et aux Cayes. Sur ces sites les infrastructures d'accueil pourront être implantées ce qui contribuera au processus de décentralisation.

Le président dominicain Leonel Fernandez regrette que six mois après le violent séisme seulement 10% de l'aide internationale promise ont été transférés à Haïti.

 «Haïti n'a reçu que 10% de l'aide internationale promise (...). La reconstruction est toujours très lente, et les Haïtiens n'en voient pas les bénéfices», a soutenu M. Fernandez lors d'une allocution dans une université de Washington ( Etats-Unis).




Dans le même temps le président dominicain a déploré le transfert de la majeure partie des fonds octroyés pour l'action humanitaire aux ONG. Les fonds alloués aux Organisations Non Gouvernementales ne sont pas contrôlés par le gouvernement haïtien, a insisté M. Fernandez.

Special report: Is aid doing Haiti more harm than good?



By Simon Denyer Simon Denyer 55 mins ago


PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) – It was Haiti's premier private hospital, its rooms filled with the latest medical equipment, its surgeons trained in the latest techniques, its thick walls built to withstand an earthquake.


Those walls stood firm when the earth shook on January 12, and for three months after that devastating quake the CDTI du Sacre Coeur Hospital threw open its doors, treating thousands of victims free of charge.


American and French doctors, flown in by their respective governments, worked non-stop in CDTI's operating rooms together with their Haitian counterparts seeing more than 12,000 patients and performing more than 700 major surgeries.


Today, the hospital stands empty, its consulting and operating rooms abandoned, its beds unused, its scanners gathering dust, its two brand new ambulances sitting under tarpaulins in the yard. On April 1, owner Reynold Savain was forced to close CDTI because neither the Haitian nor U.S. governments, nor the United Nations, would agree to help pay his bills.


The echoing corridors of the hospital are a monument to the failure of the Haitian government and the international community to work with the private sector to rebuild. The risk is that billions of dollars of aid will once again fail to leave any lasting legacies in the Western Hemisphere's poorest country.


A cholera outbreak in recent days only underlines the vulnerabilities of Haiti's dysfunctional systems.



Savain said when he asked the World Health Organization to help cover his doctors' salaries, they offered to pay in food and blankets, of no use to professionals who needed cash to pay rent and school fees.


"Philosophically, they can't work with the private sector, that is the real issue," the white-haired Savain said as he opened door after door to empty rooms.


"They want to put everything through the public sector, but they have to find a way to strengthen the private sector."


Friends say Savain made mistakes too in handling the issue, sending invoices to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), as though he had a right to charge every patient his full private rates at a time of national emergency, instead of looking for a compromise.


Nonetheless, nine months after the earthquake struck, there is a strong sense that the Haitian government, foreign donors and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the domestic private sector are simply not pulling in the same direction, not even talking the same language.


HEALTH SYSTEM VULNERABLE


Time after time, Haiti has endured disaster followed by aid that did little to build long-term prosperity -- bypassing both the government and the private sector.


From corrupt politicians to nepotistic elites and well-meaning outsiders who thought they knew best, there is plenty of blame to go around.


The question is how to break the cycle and rebuild after the quake which killed at least a quarter of a million people and rendered more than a million homeless, leaving vast swathes of Port-au-Prince in ruins.


The disaster drew an outpouring of sympathy from around the world and foreign aid has had significant successes. But it is not providing, and seems unable to provide, permanent private sector jobs. This is nowhere more apparent than in agriculture and in private healthcare.


Clean running water, medical care and food now reach many of the 1.3 million people in the tented camps which are crammed into every available space -- between rubble and buildings -- on the steep hills of the chaotic capital. Famine and epidemics had largely been avoided until an outbreak of cholera killed more than 250 people in recent days, raising fears of a broader epidemic. Healthcare for the average city dweller may even be better than before the earthquake, even if that is a pitifully low bar by international standards.


But employment is still hard to come by, even for highly qualified Haitians. In one of the camps, American nurse Beth Middleton opens her bag to show half a dozen resumes she has received just that morning from doctors seeking work, educated men who Haiti desperately needs but who are languishing under the tents which surround her.


"The healthcare that was in place before the earthquake was crippled by the relief effort," she said. "Pharmacies closed because of all the free drugs, and doctors lost all their patients."

In the earthquake affected areas, nearly two-thirds of hospitals were severely damaged or completely destroyed.

Policarpe Jean Yves' pharmacy was knocked down by the earthquake, and these days he sits on the steps of a small nearby store a friend lets him use, the shelves behind him bare apart from a few, scattered and lonely boxes of medicine.

He is still paying the loan on his old shop, at interest rates of four or five percent a month, but business is bleak.

Free foreign drugs are flooding the market, either given directly to camp dwellers or resold cheaply on the quiet, doctors have fled the area, and prescriptions are down.

"Demand is not the same any more, and I don't have much stock anyway." he said, listening to the radio.

"Now, this is no business. I am just sitting here reflecting on what to do."

THE MISTAKES OF THE PAST, REPEATED

Haiti, which won independence from France in 1804 after a slave revolt, has become a by-word in how not to administer foreign aid.

Benefits channeled through foreign agencies and NGOs have robbed the government of legitimacy, and distorted the local economy by pushing up wages, rents and prices.

Foreign organizations have plundered government ranks for qualified staff, and a failed export-led growth model has left the country ever more dependent on imports and aid.

Edmond Mulet, the head of the United Nations mission in Haiti, said the international community was partly responsible for the weakness of the Haitian state, because it did not trust -- and so consistently bypassed -- successive governments.

"We created this Republic of NGOs, almost 10,000 NGOs,

 some of them are extremely responsible and doing good work, but many, many other ones are there, and nobody knows what they do, and nobody knows where the money comes from or is going to."

"And we have created these parallel structures, in education, in health services, in all sorts of responsibilities that the Haitians should be assuming themselves," he said.

"Building back better" was the mantra of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and the entire post-quake reconstruction effort, but there is very little sign of that fundamental shift.

The international community seems unable to change gear successfully from emergency aid to long-term development -- different tasks performed by different groups of people that never quite seem to mesh. Instead all the familiar problems of international aid have re-emerged, writ large.

The massive influx of free foreign food undercut local agriculture, reducing prices and hurting farmers' incomes, Oxfam International said in a report this month, adding there was still too little emphasis on developing the island's agriculturally based economy.

It is a complaint that has also been made by Haitian President Rene Preval, who has repeatedly asked for more food aid to be sourced locally.

USAID is spending $126 million over five years to support the rural population outside Port-au-Prince, and in August introduced two grants to help Haitian families buy local food. A spokesman said it was trying to strike the right balance between life-saving assistance and long-term development.

But a ban on direct assistance to industries that compete with U.S. exports, and extensive exports to Haiti of rice, sugar and poultry, have undermined those goals, Oxfam said.

Ironically, Haiti is the third largest export market for American rice, its tariff of just three percent way under a Caribbean average of 38 percent. Politically powerful U.S. rice exporting states like California, Arkansas and Texas may benefit, but Haitian farmers certainly do not.

"The international community must abandon these conflicting trade and aid policies in order to support the growth of Haiti's fragile rural economy," said Philippe Mathieu, Oxfam's director for Haiti.

REVERSING THE MIGRATIONS, SAVING THE MIDDLE CLASS

Haiti is a country of migration. Before the earthquake, an average of 75,000 people would migrate from the countryside to the capital every year in search of jobs and opportunity.

Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive told Reuters decentralization, rebuilding rural infrastructure and attracting foreign investment were the only ways to solve the problems of 1.3 million camp dwellers.

Resettling people to the countryside without that investment, without job opportunities and public services, he said, was simply a waste of time.

The problem is money,

because much of the aid is tied to humanitarian not development goals.

"I believe I won't find a lot more (money), because the governments, they love Haiti, they pledge to support us but they are not going to be able to engage a lot more for Haiti," Bellerive said in an interview.

"So the only way to find more money is to attract private money to do business in Haiti, and making it profitable."

Private investment would go a long way to solving Haiti's other big migration problem, of its middle classes, who flee en masse to the United States and Canada.

More than 80 percent of people who completed university education have ended up leaving the country, according to U.N. data, the highest rate among least developed countries. Their remittances sustain the Haitian economy, but reducing or even reversing that migration is Haiti's only long-term hope.

Yet, so far, the middle classes seem to have been ignored. In a rush to help the poor, rebuild the state and woo big foreign investors, they have been forgotten.

"The middle class is the biggest victim of the earthquake, that's clear," Bellerive said. "And they are the only one that no one is taking care of, starting with us, the government."

They are victims like Marc Eddy Jean Francois, a 42-year-old businessman who used to run a computer school and electronics shop before the quake. Most of his stock was destroyed. His landlord asked him to pay to repair the damage and refused to refund his rent.

Today, he has set up shop in a makeshift stall on a sidewalk, cobbled together with corrugated iron and an old door, rather optimistically called "Radio Galaxie." His stock is a lone reconditioned laptop, a video camera, a few flashcards, some batteries and a plastic torch, all, he said, loaned him by vendors.

Eddy's family used to own a grocery store, and he studied management with dreams of becoming a successful businessman and ultimately following his brother abroad. But those dreams have been hard to realize.

"The middle class don't have hope to go forward,"

he said, sitting on a bench on the sidewalk outside his shop, a dog sniffing at a pool of stagnant water and garbage close by.

"For the middle class, it's 'sauve qui peut' (everyone for themselves)," he added with a shrug and a smile.

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE

There is a flicker of hope over the horizon for people like Eddy, with Haitian authorities preparing a partial credit guarantee fund, which they hope will bring down interest rates to affordable levels on $140 million in loans to allow small businesses and entrepreneurs to get back on their feet.

But the engine of foreign investment, on which Bellerive is depending, is still sputtering.

There have been some significant projects announced, the biggest a $100 million investment in the state telecoms company by Vietnamese military-run company Viettel.

A South Korean textile manufacturer, Sae-A Trading Company, announced it would form part of a project to develop an industrial park and garment making operation in Haiti, aimed at creating 10,000 jobs. Other garment manufacturers are also sniffing around, seeking out low wages as costs rise elsewhere, and after the U.S. Congress this year expanded duty-free access to the U.S. clothing market.

On the outskirts of the capital, building continued on a brand new $56.7 million electricity generation plant despite the earthquake, and the Haitian-South Korean joint venture plant is due to come on line in January.

But planned investments in hotels and tourism, with five chains interested before the earthquake, were swept away, said Jocelerme Privert, an economic adviser to the president.

Mulet says foreign investment is seriously held back by the absence of the rule of law, something he blames on the political and business elite who benefit from the status quo and lack political will to change.

"All the reconstruction effort, all the investments, all that is being done on humanitarian assistance to the people... everything will be in vain unless the Haitians themselves lead in creating the rule of law in Haiti," he said.

The Caribbean nation, which lies just east of Cuba on half of the historic island of Hispaniola, has a reputation for corruption, tropical intrigue and explosive social and political violence, famously encapsulated in Graham Greene's novel "The Comedians".

Dictators like Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier and his son Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" teamed up with powerful local and foreign businessmen to keep the bulk of the mostly rural population crushed under grinding poverty.

"THE REPUGNANT ELITE"

Like the hospital owner, Savain, Richard Coles is a light-skinned member of the business elite, and he freely admits his peers have played an undistinguished role in their country's checkered past.

"We never respect the rule of law,

 we easily conspire to overthrow the government but never to rebuild the country, we use our access to the national palace to further our business interests but we never go to the national palace to say 'do something for the people in Cite Soleil,'" he said, referring to the capital's infamous slum.

"We spend our good money in the U.S. and not in Haiti,"

he added. "The country gave us everything and we gave nothing in return."

And yet, Coles argued, the international community needs to stop seeing business leaders as a "repugnant elite" and collaborate with them to rebuild the economy.

Coles runs MultiTex, a branch of the sprawling family business that employs 3,000 people and turns out two million T-shirts a week for export to the United States and Canada.

What is lacking, whether in the chaotic NGO effort and in the private sector, is government leadership, he said in his office, sewing machines humming under strip lights on the factory floor below.

"Everyone wants to do good, but the sum of so much goodwill is so pitiful," he said.

Coles wants a master plan from the government, some "predictability", a sense of where the country is going, what sectors of the economy to invest it and some help in accessing the capital to invest.

"Unless there is a master plan for Haiti, the Haitian private sector will keep on surviving, but will never be an actor for development," he said.

"Once we have a plan, energies will be channeled to rebuild the country. With no plan, the energy will be wasted."

Since coming to power in 2006, Preval's government had gained a decent reputation abroad for promoting reforms and business. But it was crippled by the quake, losing ministry buildings and scores of trained civil servants.

Even so, many quake victims grumble the government has been slow to attend to their needs, and even Mulet talked of the need for a "renewal in the political energy" and new leadership after presidential elections in November.

Sitting in his hill-top villa overlooking Port-au-Prince, Prime Minister Bellerive seems almost paralyzed by the challenge he faces. Government plans do exist but he acknowledges there is not the clarity there could be -- something he blames squarely on the international community.

Even though Haiti has been following IMF programs for years Bellerive said a poverty reduction plan drawn up in 2006, and "applauded by the whole world", was simply not financed.

"We are not going to waste months preparing a plan without knowing who is going to finance it," he said.

Almost all the money that has flowed into Haiti since the earthquake has bypassed the government completely, much of it flowing through NGOs who do not even coordinate with the government, he said. Even the $11 billion that has been pledged over the next decade is uncertain to arrive and largely out of his control, he said.

"I don't know how much and when it will come," he said.

 "How are you going to plan for that?"

So we come full circle, all the actors in Haiti almost overwhelmed by the scale of the problems. "Everyone is blaming each other, but everyone is responsible," said Coles.

Perhaps when November's elections are out of the way, if there is macroeconomic stability and some more forceful leadership, business leaders say, there is still hope to get Haiti's reconstruction back on track and its private sector back on its feet.

But in October, with the vast bulk of the rubble still uncollected and the vast majority of survivors still living under canvas, there is little to give substance to those hopes.

The money that has come so far seems to washed over Haiti without leaving much behind, except more dependence on aid.

"And when the money runs out, we are ... " Savain said grimly in his empty hospital, drawing his hand across his neck in a chopping motion.

L’aide of­ferte par le Canada pour la reconstruction d’Haïti est à l’image des dernières élections qui ont eu lieu dans ce pays ravagé par un violent séisme, selon un regroupement d’organisations non gouvernementales et de la société civile

 

: un véritable gâchis.




. «L’aide ne se rend pas.



Les gens ne voient pas les effets de l’aide parce qu’on est pris dans des mécanismes internationaux, a affirmé hier la directrice de l’Entraide missionnaire et membre de la Concertation pour Haïti (CPH), Suzanne Loiselle.

Wikileaks exposes US profiteering after Haiti earthquake


little-haiti


By John Marion
24 June 2011


On June 15, the whistleblower web site WikiLeaks began releasing US diplomatic cables from the period immediately following the devastating Haitian earthquake of January 2010. The cables, from among the 251,287 in WikiLeaks’ possession, provide important information on the machinations of US politicians, on their tight control over Haitian government functions, and about their drive to reopen Haiti to capitalist exploitation.



WikiLeaks has reached an agreement with Haiti Liberté, a weekly paper and web site published by Haitian immigrants in the US, under which the paper has first access to the Haitian cables and also helps to post them on the WikiLeaks web site. Concurrently, The Nation is publishing English-language translations of the Haiti Liberté articles.


Approximately 1,900 cables from the US embassy in Port-au-Prince will be released on WikiLeaks using this process. One hundred of them had been released as of June 22, including 36 about the earthquake, most written by then-Ambassador Kenneth Merten.



The most damning section of the earthquake cables appears at the end of one written on February 1, 2010, with a section titled


“The Gold Rush is On!”


The “veritable free-for-all” of profit-seekers



 included a sales presentation given to Haitian President Rene Preval by retired general and former US presidential candidate Wesley Clark on a model of cheap housing that would supposedly shelter the poor from future earthquakes and hurricanes.


AshBritt, Inc. was also anxious to get in on the “gold rush.” A US corporation with close ties to the Republican party, Ashbritt had already been accused by Broward County, Florida, of double-billing it more than $700,000 after Hurricane Wilma in 1999, and had earned a reputation for profiteering after Hurricane Katrina.


In Haiti, AshBritt proposed a national plan to rebuild all government buildings, according to the February 1 cable. In this plan,



it was aided by Gilbert Bigio,



 one of the few billionaires in Haiti, who joined with AshBritt to form the Haiti Recovery Group (HRG).



Bigio made much of his fortune during the Duvalier regime, and in 2004 told the Miami Herald,



 “I don’t think there’s resentment against people who are rich here.… f you know how to manage success, people admire you instead of hate you.”


In turn, Ashbritt and the HRG were aided by Lewis Lucke, a career USAID bureaucrat appointed unified relief coordinator ambassador shortly after the earthquake. Within months of taking that position, Lucke left it in order to work as a consultant for AshBritt and the HRG.



 


De gauche à droite Georges Sassine, président de l


Not content with the $30,000-per-month fee he received from them for two months of consulting,


 Photo: Eddy


 Lucke turned around and sued the companies for $500,000, arguing that he deserved it for having used his government connections to grab $20 million in contracts for the HRG.


Now on the board of the company MC Endeavors, Lucke recently called the inauguration of new Haitian president Michel Martelly “an optimistic time for all Haitians and its many international partners [sic],” according to the company’s web site.


Like the looting of Wall Street, however, the depredations of capitalism in Haiti are not limited to the actions of individuals.



The WikiLeaks cables make plain the concern of the US embassy that clothing manufacturers be able to continue profiting from cheap labor.



 



A February 26, 2010, cable boasts that for the apparel industry, “shipping from Haiti resumed in less than a month, meeting customers’ expectations of having their orders filled on time.” Another cable expresses the worry that Wal-Mart will “source” its needs elsewhere if Haiti doesn’t meet its infrastructure needs.


Under the guise of “helping” Haitian workers by providing jobs, the February 26 cable elaborates that “international investors, brands, and manufacturers who expressed interest in expanding production in Haiti before the earthquake renewed their commitment to support the Haitian apparel industry, taking advantage of the trade preferences of the HOPE II Act for duty-free export to the US.”


The embassy makes these boasts despite the story, also related in the February 26 cable, of a factory that completely collapsed during the earthquake, killing at least 300 workers.


Cables from June 2009, also released on WikiLeaks this month, detail attempts by the US embassy to advocate on behalf of Hanes and Levi’s against a minimum wage increase, according to Haiti Liberte. The minimum wage increase was being debated by parliament at a time when the average worker in Haiti’s garment sector made the equivalent of US$4.33 per day.



The post-earthquake cables also show the extent of the US Government’s control over Haiti, down to the smallest details. A January 19 cable detailing a visit by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton describes repeated attempts by Clinton and her legal counsel to talk President Preval and Prime Minister Bellerive into setting up government-run refugee camps. The Haitian government was afraid that such camps might make “the security situation worse” or lead to protests against the government. A January 26 cable describes a detailed report given to the embassy officer about raw material inventories in the SANOPI industrial park.



One of three cables sent on January 29 states that “the Governor and Chief Internal Auditor of the Central Bank have both repeatedly reassured EmbOff that re-establishing payroll for civil servants remains a priority” while “Maxime Charles, President of the Haitian Bankers’ Association told EmbOffs on January 27 that the Central Bank, with the help of MINUSTAH, is supplying funds to bank branches in provinces.” In a February 23 cable, a prominent Haitian senator gives the embassy political officer a report about political maneuverings in parliament. Cable after cable expresses the US embassy’s obsessive worry about whether the government of Haiti can afford to meet its police payroll.



Despite disagreements over specifics, the cables demonstrate that the US State Department saw Preval and Bellerive as the quickest means of enforcing the needs of international capital.



 In a section of a January 27 cable titled “Parliament Seeking Relevance,” Merten reports that Bellerive did not bother to show up for a Haitian Senate hearing on January 25, while on the same day the lower house passed a resolution but “the resolution had no legal effect and received little coverage in the press.”


 


A month later, Merten seems surprised that Parliament has “re-established itself quickly” and is “re-asserting its role as a watchdog.” However, he writes parliament off as “inefficient” and expresses the hope that “Preval could sideline Parliament after May 2010 and make limited concessions only as needed.”


Adding to the cynicism of the Obama administration and its State Department,


Jean-Max Bellerive Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Anna Roosevelt, Boeing Vice President, Community and Education Relations stand together as Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive L speaks after it was announced during a meeting of the Interim Haiti Reconstruction Commission that the Boeing company is donating 900,000 dollars to the Haitian education system after the massive January 12th earthquake on August 17, 2010 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. As the country prepares for the Presidential elections, on November 28, some 1.5 million people are still living in tent camps and less than 4 percent of the rubble created by collapsed buildings has been cleared since the powerful earthquake that killed some 200,000 people.


on February 12, Nancy Pelosi (then speaker of the US House) led a delegation of five senators and seven representatives at a meeting with Preval, Bellerive, and their cabinet. All but one in the US delegation were Democrats, including Senator Tom Harkin and Representatives Charles Rangel and John Conyers.


Echoing the mantra of the US bourgeoisie that an earthquake that killed hundreds of thousands could serve as an “opportunity,” Pelosi answered Preval’s plea for US private investment by telling him, “we’re receptive...


 



The “different place” envisioned by Pelosi can only mean more destitution for Haiti’s workers, regardless of which big business party controls the US government.

The worst-kept secret in Haiti: the UN's cruise ship hotel


 


 


By Staff Writers


Terra Daily


Wednesday, Apr 7, 2010





Editor's Comment: We applaud all relief workers who are giving their time and talent to help the Haitian people. But the stark contrast between the living conditions of some relief workers and the Haitian people is inescapable. This AFP story doesn't investigate the source of funding for the Ola Esmeralda and the Sea Voyager juxtiposed against the miserable living conditions of the Haitian people. Are they funded by aid donated for the people of Haiti or from the coffers of UN donor nations? Either way how much water, medicine, food, tents, workers and supplies would that money buy? It's a safe bet that Cuban and Venezuelan doctors, engineers and their other workers aren't sleeping and partying on Ola Esmeralda or the Sea Voyager. There must be a thousand and one ways to rationalize the use of these cruise ships by relief workers in Haiti. But then, the human mind is capable of justifying anything.



- Les Blough, Editor










Port-Au-Prince (AFP) April 1, 2010

























Ola Esmeralda Luxury Liner
in Port-au-Prince



Deep within the labyrinthine complex of huts at the UN logistics base in Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince is a small office where staff sign up to stay on a cruise ship called the Ola Esmeralda.

For some this is smart, out-of-the-box thinking to accommodate aid workers in a hazardous post-quake environment, for others it is a blazing symbol of excess that shows just how out of touch the United Nations is from the task at hand.



There is a second smaller luxury ship, the Sea Voyager, berthed in port but also offering air-conditioned en suite rooms to hundreds of staff for a heavily subsidized rate of 40 dollars a night, including breakfast and dinner.



"It's the best deal in town," a UN worker told AFP on condition of anonymity, refusing to comment on stories of late-night partying on the ships but saying the proper rate should be around 150 dollars.



A UN coordinator who started living on the Sea Voyager because her house was destroyed by the quake told AFP she was happy because she had stopped working endless hours and sleeping in her office.



"Obviously some people are complaining because it is a long way away, 40 minutes by bus, but it's great, how can we complain, we have air-con, we have food, the mosquitos are under control," she said.



The UN lost a record number of staff in the quake and has worked extremely hard since to place Haiti on the road to recovery but there is an obvious danger of perception regarding the bizarre accommodation arrangement.



The UN peacekeeping force MINUSTAH has long been viewed with suspicion here by the masses of urban poor and even if there is no other viable solution, it doesn't look good.



"If the UN is living on a cruise ship, it is the perfect metaphor for how they are viewed here in the country,"





said Richard Morse, the 52-year-old owner of Port-au-Prince's iconic Hotel Oloffson.



"If they think quake refugees should be living on cruise ships, then they should get cruise ships for the Haitian people, that's all I'm saying. Unless of course I am misinterpreting this and they really are better than Haitians."



Sarah Muscroft, the deputy head of mission for the UN's Organization for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), said the reason ships were being used was because member states insisted on safe housing for staff.



"That is the reason why there is a boat here because the member states have basically said you have to have our nationals who work for you in non-prefab buildings," Muscroft said.



Informed sources told AFP that the 1,200-tonne, 175-foot Sea Voyager is on a three-month lease that started mid-February, while the Ola Esmeralda is on a six-month lease from mid-March.





The 11,000-tonne, 140-meter (460-foot) long Ola Esmeralda had two bars, a casino, three restaurants and an outdoor pool back in its heyday as a cruise ship, when it was known as the Black Prince.





At least one bar still operates,



providing UN workers with the chance to unwind in a secure environment offshore, well away from the putrid camps where hundreds of thousands of survivors struggle to eke out a post-quake existence.



It is this detachment from the people they are supposed to be trying to protect that infuriates Morse, who said MINUSTAH should just leave if they are not going to help the Haitian poor.



"The UN mandate here is to keep the urban poor in check, that's their mandate here, their mandate is not to keep the elites from being corrupt, their mandate is not to keep the Haitian government from being corrupt," he said.



"Maybe not everyone can articulate it, but if you sit down in a conversation and you are speaking Creole with some people, you are going to hear them end up criticizing the UN."



Megan B, a medical officer on the Sea Voyager described on her blog site on February 16 the first arrivals for the floating hotel.



"15 UN people came aboard for the night. They were so excited just to be able to take a shower, and have water that stayed warm.





The following Sunday she wrote:



"Most of the people spend time in the bar, and do that each night. After working all day in Haiti, so would I. These people like to party. That is for sure."



Muscroft said the UN was well aware of the problems of perception but admitted: "In reality it's quite difficult to make sure that that is at the forefront of what we're doing all the time."

Maryel,

 

Nou sanble antrave, e jan bagay la ye la ak moun sayo, nou kondane pou jwen 6 cents sou yon dola, meme jan Haiti jwen salaire ki egay a %6 salaire peyi normal...chif sa explike poukisa plis ke 90% popilsyon yan nan mizer atros , nan yon peyi preske mort socialman, mort technologikman...

 

asloke ajan PNUD nan yon peyi san zouti pou li fonksyone gen salaire plis pase 10 mil $US, plis frais a swer , kore pa Per-diem...4x4 , gas leta  rans, se pou yo Desalyn te goumen pou fait Boyer peye pidevan , pou mete Haiti sou yon form desklavaj socio-ekonomik pou pa jam aryen nan vi li, peye rason ki pi gro pase sa nou ka prodwi...sa sanble pi di pase ti kout fwet nan golgota , krwisifye Haiti du meme kou...

 


D-ou Haiti pa jam libere vraiment

A Triple Canopy operative – at least the Tonton Macoutes were Haitian.
A Haiti conference was held in Miami last month for private military and security companies to showcase their services to governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in the earthquake devastated country of Haiti.


On their website for the Haiti conference, the trade group IPOA (ironically called the International Peace Operations Association until recently) lists 11 companies advertising security services explicitly for Haiti. Even though guns are illegal to buy or sell in Haiti, many companies brag of their heavy duty military experience.


Triple Canopy, a private military company with extensive security operations in Iraq and Israel, is advertising for business in Haiti. According to human rights activist and investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill, Triple Canopy took over the Xe/Blackwater security contract in Iraq in 2009. Scahill reports on a number of bloody incidents involving Triple Canopy, including one where a team leader told his group, “I want to kill somebody today … because I am going on vacation tomorrow.”


Another company seeking work is EODT Technology which promises in its ad that its personnel are licensed to carry weapons in Haiti. EODT has worked in Afghanistan since 2004 and provides security for the Canadian Embassy in South Africa. On their website they promise a wide range of security services including force protection, guard services, port security, surveillance and counter IED response services.



A retired CIA special operations officer founded another company, Overseas Security & Strategic Information, also advertising with IPOA for security business in Haiti. The company website says they have a “cadre of U.S. personnel” who served in Special Forces, Delta Force and SEALS and they state many of their security personnel are former South African military and police.



Patrick Elie, the former minister of defense in Haiti, told Anthony Fenton of the Inter Press Service that “these guys are like vultures coming to grab the loot over this disaster. And probably money that might have been injected into the Haitian economy is just going to be grabbed by these companies and I’m sure they are not the only these mercenary companies but also other companies like Halliburton or these other ones that always come on the heels of the troops.”


Naomi Klein, world renowned author of “The Shock Doctrine,” has criticized the militarization of the response to the earthquake and the presence of “disaster capitalists” swooping into Haiti. The high priority placed on security by the U.S. and NGOs is wrong, she told Newsweek. “Aid should be prioritized over security. Any aid agency that’s afraid of Haitians should get out of Haiti.”



Security is a necessity for the development of human rights. But outsourcing security to private military contractors has not proven beneficial in the U.S. or any other country. Recently, U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont introduced bills titled “Stop Outsourcing Security” to phase out private military contractors in response to the many reports of waste, fraud and human rights abuse.


Human rights organizations have long challenged the growth in private security contractors in part because governments have failed to establish effective systems for requiring them to be transparent and for holding them accountable.


It is challenging enough to hold government accountable. The privatization of a public service like security gives government protection to private corporations which are also difficult to hold accountable. The combination is doubly difficult to regulate.


The U.S. has prosecuted hardly any of the human rights abuses reported against private military contractors. Amnesty International has reviewed the code of conduct adopted by the IPOA and found it inadequate in which compliance with international human rights standards is not adequately addressed.


This is yet another example of what the world saw after Katrina. Private security forces, including Blackwater, also descended on the U.S. Gulf Coast after Katrina, grabbing millions of dollars in contracts.


Contractors like these soak up much needed money which could instead go for job creation or humanitarian and rebuilding assistance. Haiti certainly does not need this kind of U.S. business.



In a final bit of irony, the IPOA, according to the Institute for Southern Studies, promises that all profits from the event will be donated to the Clinton-Bush Haiti relief fund.
