  1. What hypocrisy from the Caricom Secretary-General!

    Not one word of the century-plus payments of reparations to the French; not a single word about the multiple invasions by the US to re-enslave the Haitians in the sweat-shop plantations to produce cheap goods for the US market; not one word about the attempted genocide by the UN with the introduction of pestilences such as cholera; not one word about the Clinton Foundation being the viceroys installed by fascist globalists to cock-block the Russians & Chinese from extracting Haiti’s natural resources (oil, gas & gold) for the benefit of the supposed independent Haitian state!

  2. This report is an embarrassment to CARICOM. Who are they congratulation? The Rebels? People are dying, women are being raped and all other ill are occurring now in Haiti.

  3. “Fortitude and resilience” bs rhetoric. Abject poverty and lawlessness rampant. Haitians destroyed the political independence won and took the path of dictatorship and economic disaster.

  4. BIG UP HAITI . Your independence is older than that of the United States and many of your slaves masters UNLIKE US and many other Caribbean countries you TOOK your Independence it was not HANDED to you and for this you have been paying dearly for freeing yourself. Many of these idiots don’t even know of your contribution to the establishment of the United States or your connection to New Orleans. BIG UP Yourself one day you will overcome
