Regarding those contributing to Haiti the "bourgeois" - the engine in the
middle, according to both French and English definitions, neither poor nor
filthy rich: .
Just offhand, I can think of these::
Jacques Roche. The tortured killed journalist.
Nancy Roc, whose exposes earned her death threats and she finally left in fear,
depriving Haiti of informed reports.
Now, what would you call Chavannes JnBaptiste? He is peasant-born in Bassin
Zim, deep in Central Plateau (you know, that area of Haiti 75 miles from
PortauPrince up steep hill, with only one road, often impassable in rainy
season), head of organization (MPP), educated, more than one home, has done so
much for Haiti - now, he was born poor to illiterate parents who made sure all
of their eight children received educations - M.D., ph.D. among them. He and
his brother Bazelais speak six languages, like Aristide. Many MPP members were
killed during Cedras regime, supporting Aristide (Chavannes delivered peasant
vote for Aristide, who wasted no time - betrayed him and the peasants.) So
where is Chavannes and MPP members, many of them do not read or write?.
Then, there are the musicians: Coupé Cloué, Dadou Pasquet, Nemours Jn Baptiste,
the Beaubruns (comedian father), Michel Martelly (whose brother in law Georges
runs key cybercafe in Hinche - business owners are bourgeois. And artists.
Takes some money to eat and buy artistic supplies.
