If MINIUSTAH (UN Mission to Stabilize Haiti) soldiers in Haitiare not 
employing violence, it has been amply reported that they are on scene when 
Haitian police attack demonstrators.  See Haiti-Progres vol 22 # 36 (17 au 
23 novembre.)

The lead article is "La politique haitienne de Lula a la traine de 
l'imperialisme?" or "Are the Haitian policies of Lula following in the wake 
of imperialism?"

All of the HP issues in November have articles raising MINUSTAH actions in 
the struggle to restore democracy in Haiti.

Sometime Haiti-Progres posts some of its articles on 

http://haiti-progres.com

but their record the past few months has been spotty.
