Revolution, Repression and Resistance in Haiti: Lessons of History, Life and Struggle by Dr. Maulana Karenga

ON THIS 212TH ANNIVERSARY of the triumph of the Haitian Revolution and the Declara-tion of Independence January 1, 1804, it is good to pause and reflect on its awesome meaning and measure, for it is, like African history as a whole, a sacred narrative, replete with lessons of history, life and struggle unsurpassed and second to none, if read and remembered rightly. Let us pay due and rightful homage to the brave, resili-ent and resourceful people of Haiti who defiant-ly celebrate this 212th anniversary of the Haitian Revolution in the midst of a continuing brutal occupation conducted under the deceptive and destructive camouflage and cover of a so-called U.N. "mission". Let us also acknowledge their long and undeserved suffering and suppression under the radical evil of imperialist oppression by the U.S., France and Canada and their local puppets, handmaidens and hirelings, and offer whatever support we can to the Haitian people in Haiti and here in the U.S. in their righteous and relentless struggle. And let us pay due and rightful homage to the historical and current Boukmans, Fatimas, Dessalines, Toussaints and others of the first, second, third and endless waves of revolution and righteous resistance. For truly they have carved out and maintained a special space in the history of the struggle for African and human freedom in the world.
