<< The Haitian people has to come together, to create "movements Populaires" 
 turn around the condition they are living. We cannot tolerate this anymore. 
 We cannot wait on an individual to come to deliver us. We need the base of 
 the country, the "paysants" "the Ti machann" "fanm vanyan" among others, to 
 change the country. >>

The groups that you have named have been organizing for a long time!  They 
were repressed and tortured and even murdered during the military regime, but 
since the return of constitutional government they have been functioning 
under better conditions, although there have been incidents directed at 
women's groups and so on.

Nevertheless, the Haitian constitution mandates a president and a 
legislature.  The popular organizations are generally quite active in 
supporting the candidates of their choice.  In the most recent elections 
their support went mostly to the Lavalas party.  The noisy and well-funded 
but popularly unsupported Convergence is doing it's best to reverse those
