CIDA-funded "NGOs" in Canada rationalized the destabilization and overthrow of Haitian democracy and then covered up the atrocities of the Canadian-backed dictatorship after the coup. This issue examines major themes in the propaganda war against Aristide's popularly-elected Lavalas government.

Abstract:  CIDA-funded "NGOs" in Canada rationalized the destabilization and overthrow of Haitian democracy and then covered up the atrocities of the Canadian-backed dictatorship after the coup. This issue examines major themes in the propaganda war against Aristide's popularly-elected Lavalas government:
(1) the supposedly fraudulent elections of 2000,
(2) "Black Friday" pretext incident blamed on Lavalas,
(3) "Operation Baghdad," terrorism blamed on Lavalas,
(4) The so-called "voluntary departure" of Aristide, and
(5) The big lie: "no political prisoners" during coup regime.
This issue also contains articles on: (a) the demonization of Vodoun and the politics of religion, (b) a CIDA-funded group in Haiti (NCHR) that concocted lies that were spread by CIDA partners in Canada, (c) how CIDA groups adopted the Haitian elite's racist epithet, "chimère," to tar all prodemocracy supporters as if they were violent thugs.
