Haitians Advised to Prepare—With No Buildings or Supplies

Nov 8, 2010

With a hurricane forecast to hit Haiti, people were told they had to prepare. They were advised by some “experts” to take cover in safer buildings and to further guard against problems with water contamination by putting purification tablets in their water.

Fine–except there are no safer buildings for the vast majority of the Haitian population to go to. There is no running water, let alone access to water purification supplies.

A population that has endured a devastating earthquake, an epidemic of cholera, and now, the threat of a hurricane, is being lectured by “experts” who couldn’t begin to survive what the Haitian people have lived through.

But what else can one expect from apologists and mouthpieces for all the businesses and bosses who have plundered Haiti and its people for centuries and left the Haitian people with nothing.
