The Civil Society of the Haitian Community of New England Urges the Resignation of President and the suspension of the Interim Electoral Council


Boston, MA: We, the undersigned concerned Haitian and Haitian-American citizens living in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Maine, Connecticut and Vermont are urging President Rene Preval to resign immediately and make use of Haitiís constitutional provision relative to this special circumstance.

We notice that our homeland has plunged into a tragic crisis since the announcement of the preliminary results of the general elections. The country is completely paralyzed, the commercial districts in every major city are closed, the only international airport is closed, schools are closed and there are reports that international medical groups are unable to deliver must needed medical care to the Cholera victims putting thousands of lives in immediate danger.

Haitiís government has failed; the members of the electoral council have betrayed the trust of the Haitian voters. Haitians everywhere have strongly expressed their appeal for President Rene Preval to leave. In spite of massive popular protests and several warnings from the Haitian political actors and International community, the ruling party is still managing to stick to power and wants to steal the elections at all price.

We have learned through the National news media that the ruling party is using violence to intimidate the population. We saw people murdered in broad daylight yesterday while they were protesting peacefully; we are deeply sorry, they should never die, and we express our condolences to their family members and friends. Nevertheless, we encourage the population to remain on alert and use any nonviolent means necessary to make their voices heard. Dying for your country is such a heroic act that the crowds should celebrate that beautiful death.

 We have gone too far, we have suffered too long, and we have already lost too much to give up. We shall overcome. We are with you and Jesus in on your side.
