Haiti

Fri Aug 26 2005 Lavalas holds second demonstration in Cap Haïtien
Lavalas held a march in Cap Haïtien on Sunday, August 21 to publicize the party's position on the elections. A previous attempt to stage a protest march on August 14 was severely hampered by government authorities who restricted the demonstration to the park where the Vertieres battle monument is located. This time a thousand people turned out to march throughout the downtown streets of this port city. Just as Lavalas leaders have announced in Port-Au-Prince, Moïse announced that Lavalas had 5 conditions that had to be fulfilled before the party would participate in any elections:
1. the interim government and the election commission must resign 2. all political prisoners must be freed
3. all persecution of people in the poor sections of the country must cease;
4. all political exiles must be called home including President Jean-Bertrand Aristide
5. disarmament must be carried out among every sector of the country, not just in the poor neighborhoods.
If these conditions are met Lavalas would participate in a national reconciliation process with Pres. Aristide as its party chief to proceed to hold fair elections.
