Here is the Haitian Democracy Project call for demonstration in support of
coup effort in Haiti. Former Carter official and Clinton official is main
speaker at this rally.
Noam Chomsky credits the speaker, Lawrence A Pezzullo, as being the Jimmy
Carter man on the spot who tried to keep elements of the Somoza regime in
power at the time that the Sandanistas were overthrowing that US backed
dictator. But a recent Miami paper has him with an editorial comparing
Aristide with Somoza! What incredible gall.
