One would assume that the first nation in the history of the world, to have a liberation struggle of the majority of the people, from slavery

and then liberate themselves long before the unites States from colonial opression,

would be in the front of the minds and hearts of every Black nation and organization on the planet

The Urgency of Housing in Haiti
by Beverly Bell

"Everything we owned got smashed. We lost everything."

Getro Nelio was not referring to the devastating earthquake of January 12. The unemployed, 24-year-old Haitian was speaking about losing his home a second time in three months, on this occasion due to the government. Since late March, armed Haitian police have been closing camps and destroying the shelters that quake victims created out of whatever supplies they could scavenge, from cardboard to small strips of tin. U.N. troops sometimes aid in the evictions.

The expulsions and renewed homelessness come at a time of growing urgency for permanent, sturdy housing, with water, utilities, and sewer, where people can stabilize their lives and rebuild community. "Decent housing" is protected by both the Haitian constitution and the U.N. International Declaration of Human Rights.

Haitian government officials and international aid agencies have revealed no plan to meet these needs or fulfill these rights of the 1.3 million left displaced - one in nine citizens. Instead, rare public statements evidence conflicting strategies for limited, temporary initiatives.

Well before you come down too hard on the Red Cross. Don't know if your talking about the International Red Cross or the US Red Cross, but have a look at the UN.

Just in case you were wondering where some of the money to rebuild Haiti is going?

For the United Nations World Food Program, it was a moment of satisfaction: the U.N.'s flagship relief agency announced on its Web site on March 19 that two gleaming passenger ships had docked in ravaged Port au Prince harbor.
What the Web site announcement did not disclose was that the vessels were intended to house not homeless Haitian refugees, but employees of the U.N. itself. Nor did it publicize the cost of leasing the ships: $112,500 a day. Nor did it mention that one of the vessels is owned by a company closely linked to the government of Venezuelan strongman President Hugo Chavez.

Or this

The above picture was taken at the San Souci port in Santo Domingo Dominican Republic, Can someone can tell me why the United nations requires 100+ brand new SUV's and luxury vehicles to service the Haiti situation. This is about 4 kilometers from my house. Should have seen the convoy. Most every week our hotels are full of UN workers. Its great for our economy, but they are staying at the 150+ a night ones not the budget jobs.

Don't bang fox news too hard they are just the messenger

The United Nations has quietly upped this year's peacekeeping budget for earthquake-shattered Haiti to $732.4 million, with two-thirds of that amount going for the salary, perks and upkeep of its own personnel, not residents of the devastated island.

I appreciate the input brother but the focus of the article and the statement was to illustrate, that all Black folks have a symbolic debt to assist Haiti.
And not just disaster related relief
