Sur un plateau d'or, au nom de la culture universelle, le poète haïtien Joe JEAN CHARLES dédie ses mots et sa flamme poétique à Cité-Soleil.

Laissons nos sens se faire guider et éblouïr. Laissons nos âmes se faire envoûter par une vibration naturelle, hypnotique et intense. De préférence, cette vibration issue de l’inouïsme des tréfonds multicolores de la sublimité de la poésie de Joe JEAN CHARLES. 1,179 more words

That first afternoon, we exited the vehicles and entered the muddy pathways and narrow thoroughfares of this sad city. We were immediately surrounded by children—smiling children—who reached out and gently grasped our hands and our arms and accompanied us down the horrific alleyways of sewage and mud and garbage and little tin shacks constructed of cast-off materials. 484 more words

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC ADDS BORDER TROOPS AHEAD OF UN HAITI EXIT

map-haiti-the-dominican-republic.jpg The Dominican Republic is sending 1,000 more soldiers to its border with Haiti to prepare for any fallout from the withdrawal of UN peacekeeping troops from its neighbor. Armed Forces Minister Ruben Paulino says the new troops will join 1,500 soldiers regularly stationed along the border. He made the announcement Tuesday. Paulino says the troops are intended to protect against any increase in the smuggling of drugs or weapons as well as a potential rise in illegal immigration in the event of increased instability following the scheduled pullout of nearly 2,400 UN troops from Haiti in October. The countries share a 350-kilometer (215-mile) border on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola. The UN force has been in Haiti since the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004.
