The Tèt Kole peasant movement has called for the mobilisation of the Haitian 
masses to demand justice for the victims of a number of assassinations and 
massacres. In a declaration published at the end of its second national 
congress, Tèt Kole invites the government to take action to facilitate full 
investigations into these events so that the culprits are punished in 
accordance with the law. The organisation calls for the arrest of those 
responsible for the massacres at Jean Rabel, Milot, Piatre, Labadie and 
Gervais in the Artibonite. It also demands justice for Father Jean Marie 
Vincent, Father Jean Pierre Louis, and for the general manager of Radio 
Haiti, Jean Léopold Dominique, and the station's guard, Jean Claude 

Tèt Kole Ti Peyizan in addition calls for the adoption of measures to slow 
down the accelerating depreciation of the gourde compared to the dollar, and 
denounces the raising of prices of essential products and the privatisation 
of state-owned companies. 

The organisation also denounces environmental pollution and soil erosion 
which, it says, are the source of rural migration, prostitution and drug 
trafficking. With regard to the conflict between the Lavalas Family Party and 
the Democratic Convergence, Tèt Kole Ti Peyizan considers that it a struggle 
over retaining or seizing political power carried out with the blessing of 
the imperialist powers.
