#3236: Re: Haiti-Santo Domingo Independence Society (fwd)
From: kevin pina <email@example.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.
