The 4th Media » For a Revolutionary Black History Month by Mumia Abu-Jamal

[The Haitian Revolution of 1791-1804 was the first and only successful slave revolts in world history. It inspired slave revolts in the United States including those of Nat Turner and Denmark Vesey and was a beacon of hope for the brutally oppressed of the Caribbean and Latin America.Toussaint Louverture, in the leadership of an army of former slaves, defeated the colonial powers of France, Spain, and Britain. The capitalist/imperialist powers, terrified by the revolutionary example of Haiti kept it under economic blockade for decades. The United States then occupied Haiti militarily from 1915 to 1934 leaving behind a series of brutal pro-imperialist dictatorships. That intervention continues to this day with U.S. Marines kidnapping the elected president of Haiti in 2004 and the continued presence of U.N. troops to maintain the power of a discredited imperialist imposed government. Let’s join Mumia Abu-Jamal in saluting the Haitian Revolution in celebration of Black History Month. -Steven Argue]
