    http://democracynow.org - In 2010, former President Bill Clinton publicly apologized for forcing Haiti to drop tariffs on imported subsidized U.S. rice during his time in office. It wiped out rice farming, seriously damaging Haiti’s ability to be self-sufficient. "It may have been good for some of my farmers in Arkansas, but it has not worked. It was a mistake," Clinton said in 2010."I have to live every day with the consequences of the lost capacity to produce a rice crop in Haiti to feed those people, because of what I did." Six years after Clinton’s apology, Haiti faces a new food crisis in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.

The majority of these Haitian migrants made a months-long journey across Central and South America from Brazil, where they had settled after fleeing the devastation of the 2010 earthquake in their homeland. The journey north was not easy; it was long, expensive, and extremely dangerous. The trip meant crossing 10 countries by foot, bus and boat, dealing with human smugglers and corrupt police. The U.S. had once welcomed Haitians, but with an estimated 40,000 of them en route, former President Barack Obama, and now President Donald Trump, refused to let them cross the border. Migrants were left waiting in Mexico for months before U.S. immigration officials would even look at their cases. Now, as Trump has...

Haitians are smart enough to get the country moving in a positive direction. However, we need a working model to emulate. We strongly suggest the Haitian politicians to study the Rwanda Model for Economic Growth. In addition, the Haiti politicians also need to study Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. Just like we did. The Rwanda Model consist of the following techniques: 1) Low Corruption 2) Pro Investment Policy Reforms (Foreign companies have to employ 70% Haitian workers, provide training and transfer of knowledge). 3) Special Economic Zone 4) Security (Being Able to Walk Outside at Night) 5) Regulatory F...

As delegates and activists from around the world gather this week in Brazil for the RIO+20 conference on sustainable development, they'll be discussing a broad range of issues, including food security, urban growth, jobs and disaster response. Advocates are also drawing attention to the corporate influence at the UN-backed conference and calling for an alternative to extractive industries, such as mining. According to a draft text of the RIO+20 resolution obtained and published by the Guardian today, delegates will include mining as a way to alleviate poverty and help countries to meet development goals. The text also calls for strong government oversight of mining. Mining plays a big role in many developing countries, including Haiti. As the country continues to recover from the devastating earthquake of 2010 and pervasive government corruption, foreign companies are rushing in to mine for gold. According to a ten-month investigation by local reporters and students with Haiti Grassroots Watch, one third of the land in northern Haiti is under exploration, research or extraction by foreign companies and some residents are worried about environmental destruction. One of those residents is Elie Florestan from Grand Bois. "I think a mine might cause lots of problems for us. They say the mine would use our river. They say our water might become polluted. And that many families will be displaced." Two of the foreign companies most aggressively pushing for mining are Eurasian Minerals, based in Canada, and Newmont, based in the US. According to Haiti Grassroots Watch, two Haitian ministers recently signed a "Memorandum of Understanding" with Newmont and Eurasian that says the companies can begin drilling at one of their sites, a violation of Haitian law, which states no drilling can occur without a mining convention. The mining companies have promised to provide much-needed jobs in the area and some residents expressed support for the projects. Anthony Silvestre, a resident of Morne Bossa said some of the land in his area was rich with the mineral. "We feel very strongly about something: we like foreigners a lot. When foreigners come and work with us we're proud and it's beautiful. If they make a mine at Morne Bossa it would be as if God himself came down from heaven." But communities in nearby Dominican Republic are already confronting the costs of mining. The Canadian companies Barrick and Goldcorp are teaming up to develop an open pit mine. Barrick has already been forced to clean up a river polluted with sulphuric acid from a previous government-backed project in the area. Some residents described being displaced from their land for the new mine. "They moved us to this neighbohood, with nothing, no jobs no land. We're farmers! But we have nowhere to plant except the yard." In Haiti, residents and community journalists are organizing to demand more transparency in the process. But the pace is picking up. One of the mining firms, Eurasian Minerals, has collected 44,000 samples and Newmont is considering at least five mine sites. The government's role has also been called into question. A former Minister of the Economy and Finances is now a paid consultant for Newmont and residents have struggled to get information about the projects. Arnolt Jean is a farmer in Lakwev. He calls the government irresponsible. "Yes, the country is poor. But what's underground could make us rich. If the government did what it was supposed to do, and exploit the minerals that are underground, the country would not be poor, but since what's underground stays underground, rich people figure out how to exploit the minerals, so they can become richer. Those who live on top of the ground stay poor. Those who exploit what's underground get even richer." Despite millions of dollars of aid money pouring into Haiti, the government still lacks resources to adequately monitor mining or oversee future projects.

The U.S. had once welcomed Haitians, but with an estimated 40,000 of them en route, former President Barack Obama, and now President Donald Trump, refused to let them cross the border. Migrants were left waiting in Mexico for months before U.S. immigration officials would even look at their cases. Now, as Trump has further closed off America’s borders, thousands of them are stranded in Mexico, straining the country’s resources. VICE News went to Tijuana to see how the city is adjusting and how the Haitians are adjusting.

The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) and the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) today highlighted the achievements realized together in south Lebanon while vowing to continue the dangerous but life-saving undertaking of clearing landmines. In his remarks at a ceremony marking the International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action in the UNIFIL Headquarters in Naqoura, UNIFIL Head of Mission and Force Commander Major General Michael Beary hailed mine action activities conducted jointly with UNMAS and Lebanon Mine Action Center (LMAC). He added that UNIFIL de-miners to date have cleared over 4,300 square metres of land and safely removed and destroyed 800 anti-personnel mines within its 1,060 square kilometre area of operation (AO) in south Lebanon. He also highlighted the benefits of the mine risk education given to over 1,500 children in the last year, saving lives and increasing the level of engagement between UNIFIL and the people of Lebanon. “These efforts conducted in partnership with our Lebanese colleagues is a demonstration of our commitment to creating a safer environment for the people of south Lebanon,” said Major General Beary. “Landmines and other explosive remnants of war not only endanger the lives of UNIFIL personnel, but also of local populations throughout the AO.” He especially praised the work done by UNIFIL’s core de-mining teams from Cambodia and China. “I wish to publicly acknowledge their professionalism and courage as they set about this work,” he said. Despite progress, the UNIFIL head added, there are approximately 1,000 minefields along the Blue Line. Some of them are located in close proximity to UN positions. He said the “insidious menace of landmines” should be addressed by continuing to work together. “It is a huge imperative for us to keep working to try an ensure that we make south Lebanon, and other parts of the world safer through the work of UNMAS and in this mission UNIFIL,” he added. Major General Beary also read out the message of UN Secretary-General António Guterres on this year’s International Mine Awareness Day, which is observed globally under the theme “Advancing Protection, Peace and Development.” On 8 December 2005, the UN General Assembly declared that 4 April of each year shall be observed as the International Mine Awareness Day, calling on Member States to enhance national mine-action capacities in countries where mines and explosive remnants of war constitute a serious threat. Addressing today’s ceremony in Naqoura, UNMAS Acting Programme Manager for Lebanon, Sarah Holland, praised the partnership forged in south Lebanon with UNIFIL, LMAC and local community leaders in both clearing landmines and educating the communities. “As we commemorate Mine Awareness Day, we are proud of the achievements that we have realized together, and bravely acknowledge the task that lies before us,” she said. “Today, let us recommit ourselves to striving for peace and stability here in South Lebanon; and for an environment that is free of landmines and other explosive remnants of war.” At today’s event, UNMAS and UNIFIL de-miners also displayed a simulation of mine clearance activities involving robots and other de-mining equipment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Article: Tilak Pokharel Video camera & edit: Aoibheann O’Sullivan & Mohamad Hamze Music: Calling Instrumental by Dexter Britain Translators: Hanady Younes & Adib Al-Moussa Stills: Mohamad Hamze & Pascual Gorriz -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Democracynow.org - After years of rumors that mining companies were exploring in Haiti, Canadian and U.S. corporations now confirm they have permits to mine gold in more than 1,000 square-miles in northern Haiti. Haiti's new prime minister says the estimated $20 billion worth of minerals in Haiti's hills could help liberate it from dependency on foreign aid, and rebuild from the devastating 2010 earthquake. But many worry the mines will be a boom for foreign investors and a bust for local communities. We speak to Jane Regan, lead author of "Gold Rush in Haiti: Who Will Get Rich?" The report by Haiti Grassroots Watch was published Wednesday in The Guardian and Haïti Liberté. "You have a perfect storm brewing where you have giant pit mines in the north in a country that is already environmentally devastated and giant pit mines being run by Canadian and American companies," Regan says. "Most of the money and gold dug up will go straight north."

When it comes to Haiti, the media mostly show slums, deep poverty, corruption...etc... Yes, it is true Haiti has a lot of problems but not too many people seem to have a solution. Haitians are smart enough to get the country moving in a positive direction. However, we need a working model to emulate. We strongly suggest the Haitian politicians to study the Rwanda Model for Economic Growth. In addition, the Haiti politicians also need to study Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. Just like we did. The Rwanda Model consist of the following techniques: 1) Low Corruption 2) Pro Investment Policy Reforms (Foreign companies have to employ 70% Haitian workers, provide training and transfer of knowledge). 3) Special Economic Zone 4) Security (Being Able to Walk Outside at Night) 5) Regulatory Framework 6) Register Business in 6 Hours 7) Infrastructure: 24 Hour Electricity, Clean Water, Sewer and Sanitation System, Roads, Highways with Tolls. It is not safe to drink water from the tap in Haiti. The country needs to invest in a water and sewer system. 8) Performance Metrics and public administration educational courses and seminars for Government Workers 9) Accountability of moneys in each Governmental Department. Be transparent. Publish to the Haitian citizens how much money was received and how the money was spent. 10) Leadership and Clear Government Vision 11) Collecting Taxes, Tariffs and Fees 12) Agriculture Export and the Country Being Able to Feed Itself (For Haiti ORGANIC Agriculture is important vs Knowledge Base) 13) Decentralization 14) State-of-the-art Conference Center for the Region (able to receive business people from all over the world) 15) Tourism (Commercial and Eco-Tourism) 15) Property Rights - Allow the People to Own Land 16) Deforestation Solutions 17) Manufacturing 18) Technology Improvements - Telecommunication 19) Micro Lending 20) Minimize Bribery 21) Delivery of Services to the People 22) Human Capital Investment (No Natural Resources / No Land Concessions) Haiti has oil, gold, iridium, uranium etc... Unfortunately mining has negative impacts on the environment (e.g., increased possibility of earthquakes and soil/water contamination). Furthermore, will mining companies build Haiti's infrastructure??? Haiti's soil is very rich, the minerals are worth billions of dollars and theoretically Haiti can dig itself out of deep poverty by selling mining permits. But to what cost? There are other ways for Haiti get out of deep poverty and this is what we are trying to explore. Other countries may have a national plan for Haiti which may not be in our best interest. We need our own. 23) Universal Education 24) Universal Health Care (Haiti need at least one Level 1 Trauma Center and at least one Level 3 hospital in each of its 10 departments). A level 1 Trauma Center in Haiti should not be more than 130 million dollars USD and a Level 3 hospital with 300 beds should cost about 25 million dollars USD. So, under 400 million dollars USD, Haiti will have hospitals all over the country. The challenges will be the cost of equipment, preventing people from stealing the equipment and the cost of paying hospital employees. 25) Coordinating the army of NGOs in Haiti to verify if they are meeting their objectives (i.e., planting trees/reforestation - verify if they are being planted and if they are not being cut down again) How can Haiti raise money to build its infrastructure? a. Haiti does not need to do everything on its own. Haiti needs international partners to invest in the country. Haiti can offer incentives to businesses to come to Haiti. b. Fees, Tariffs and Taxes: Money Transfer Fees, Telecommunication Fees, Tourist Tax, Airplane Ticket Tax, Import Tariffs, Toll Roads, Blanket Yearly Fee on Diaspora...etc... Haiti can easily raise between 2 to 4 billion dollars per year. This is a Haitian solution which can bring 20 to 40 billion dollars in 10 years. For a small country like Haiti, in less than 10 years the country can have a decent infrastructure and will be at least out of deep poverty!!! In conclusion there are 3 main steps: *Emulate the Rwanda Model with some adjustments to fit Haiti's needs (such as focusing on agriculture, tourism, and a mixed/diversified economy) *Control Corruption *Raise Funds from Haitians Living in Haiti and the diaspora / Make it easier for investors to come in. LOW CORRUPTION AND UNITY IS KEY!!! ***NOTE: If we control corruption and follow Rwanda's Economic Model, we can have a different country in less than 10 years. As follows: Haitian money (Petro Caribe loan, fees, taxes... up to 2.6 billion per year can be raised), some foreign aid (1.4 billion dollar package from the international community has already been approved), and making it attractive for Haitian companies and international investors to come to Haiti. Can Haitians overcome its selfish mentality, stop fighting each other and work together to develop the country?

http://promotion.blackhawk-mining.com/2012/06/17/silver-copper-mining-could-save-haiti/ Haiti's copper and silver reserves in its hills are now up for an extensive exploitation by a Canadian corporation that has reportedly damaged the neighboring Dominican Republic. Once this mining plan is authorized while Haiti is under foreign occupation, it could practically leave the country without its ecological, cultural and mineral wealth. Moreover, concerns surrounding the mining venture have been raised as the operation calls for the construction of a deep-water port in the northeastern part of the country, posing a significant threat to their marine ecosystem. The biggest water reservoir that is near the mining operations is at constant risk of cyanide contamination, adding to the reports that the firm has been previously accused of destroying Indian archeological sites by using dynamites on mountainsand. Geologists of the United Nations have documented significant pockets of copper and gold in 1970s but at that time, foreigners were not willing to risk their money in an unstable and corrupt country. Surprisingly, it was not after the 2010 earthquake that outside investment was encouraged and investors discovered a good opportunity. In fact, just 2 weeks after the catastrophe, a Canadian exploration company purchased all the stocks of the only Haitian company which has full permits in exchange for an area of land, practically appearing as a scam. Three companies are already considering prospects of mining in Haiti but at present, only Somine has complete concessions to bring the metals out of the area. The said permits for 31 square miles were negotiated in 1996 during the presidency of Rene Preval and which required the company to hire Haitians. According to the parties interested in the mining prospects: "What we're most excited about is that we found some silver which was never really realized before. It's the first silver discovery in Haiti. Part of the reason why it was never really discovered was that historically there was so much copper prevalent — there's a lot of outcropping at surface. The people who did the work before did not do much testing, even for gold. The geology is a little complex for a copper porphyry, but in a good way. The surprises that we're getting are all good ones."
