#3236: Re: Haiti-Santo Domingo Independence Society (fwd)

From: kevin pina <cariborganics@hotmail.com>

"Five years of violence in that Negro republic  of the Caribbean, without 
sanction of international law or any law other than force, is now succeeded 
by an era in which the military authorities are attempting to hush up what 
has been done. The history of the American invasion of Haiti is only 
additional evidence that the United States is among those Powers in whose 
international dealings democracy and freedom are mere words, and human lives 
negligible in face of racial snobbery, political chicane, and money."

                            -Herbert J. Seligman (July 10, 1920)

This is an excerpt from a fascinating website.  A must see for research into 
the history of US-Haitian relations.
