Haiti: Return of Jean Claude Duvalier

WASHINGTON - January 17 -
EZILI DANTO

Danto is president of the Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network. She just wrote the piece “Obama’s change in Haiti: The Return of Jean Claude Duvalier.”

Danto states that Duvalier, a past dictator of Haiti, could not have been able to return without the cooperation of the U.S. and France. She notes that meanwhile, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, who was democratically elected as president of Haiti, has not been able to return to Haiti.

IPA works to broaden public discourse in mainstream media, while building communication with alternative media outlets and grassroots activists.
