*      Y.NEPTUNE: "The superpower government, the government of force and 
money is using the OAS, and hides behind a small political group of all 
sorts that is associated with a small team that is defending the interests 
of their foreign boss, and who claims to be representatives of civil 
society. They all get together to carry on the coup d'etat system. [end

*       abOn the eve of the arrival of the OAS assistant secretary-general, 
the FL has once again adopted an arrogant tone. The Interim FL leader Yvon

refers to "difficult moments" in talks with Lavalas

*       ab[Einaudi] I want to tell you that we have found very significant 
cooperation on the part of the members of the Democratic Convergence during 
these series of discussions. And I do not want to deny the fact that there 
have been difficult moments with certain representatives of the FL. [End of 


BBC Monitoring Service - United Kingdom; Oct 12, 2001 Haiti: Priest in 
Gonaives calls on people to "rebel against the Lavalas regime" Source: Radio 
Galaxie, Port-au-Prince, in French 1230 gmt 11 Oct 01

*       ab[Sejour] //The former parish priest of La Chapelle has invited all 
the parents who are not working and who cannot meet the needs of their 
families to rise up against the Lavalas regime as they did to undermine the 
foundation of the dictatorship in the country in 1986.//

//According to Reverend Father Francois Alix Joseph, if the masses are 
experiencing hunger while the government has set itself up as a true magnate 
of the real-estate business by wasting money through the purchase of 
luxurious houses, the taxpayers who do not get services must rise up against 
this government.//... Joseph spoke at the microphone of Radio Galaxie:

[Joseph] //Exactly, as we used to do before, we must start rebelling. I 
believe that when we reach a situation where the people are out of breath, a 
situation of oppression and arbitrariness,// insurrection is a necessity, 
insurrection is an emergency and a right of the people. So, I call on the 
people for rebellion. I call on the people for insurrection. I call on the 
Haitian people to rebel against the Lavalas regime //so we can rid the 
country of this stinking mud that prevents the people from breathing.//

So, insurrection is an emergency today. Insurrection is necessary. We must 
rise up against the Lavalas regime.
[Sejour] It should be pointed out that Light for All Haitians, //Limye pou 
tout Ayisyen, LIPAY//, a people's organization close to the Lavalas regime, 
almost thinks the same way as it demands the implementation of all the laws 
that give the people the right to work, school, lodging, education and so

*       abOrganizations such as the National Union of Trained Haitian 
Teachers (UNNOH), the Lavalas Grassroots Organization (Saj Veyeyo), and 
Solidarity Organization (Tet Kole) are very critical towards the Lavalas 
government seven years after Aristide returned to the country. In a note 
released today, these organizations consider the past seven years as a 
period of shame and corruption. On the political level, the groups note that 
Lavalas has done nothing to institute a democratic regime in the country. On 
the economic level, they denounce the structural adjustment program that 
Lavalas has applied, and the economic degradation. The organizations invite 
all the sectors of the population to mobilize in order to lead the country 
on the road of progress and democracy.

*       abThe Haitian National Police (PNH) is supposed to be looking for 
several leaders of People's Organizations (OP) who are considered fugitives 
from justice. More than a week ago, the justice minister had ordered the 
publication of the photographs of Rene Civil, Paul Raymond, and Ronald 
Camille in several police stations. Romney Cajuste reports that none of 
their pictures are posted in police stations. One policeman who was 
questioned said they only heard about the fugitives on the radio. The police 
have not been ordered to take any action. The OP leaders, meanwhile, are in 
Port-au-Prince going about their activities as usual.

where tires are being burned now, according to reliable information. This 
situation is the result of that fact that three persons died during a police 
operation in this area Thursday evening [11 Oct]. Residents of the area 
demonstrated against Aristide on Friday. "Down with Aristide; we do not want 
Aristide in Cite Soleil" demonstrators shouted. By the way, Radio Haiti 
Inter journalist Jean-Robert Delcine was manhandled by police who were 
operating in Cite Soleil while he was covering the demonstration.
