A sailboat carrying Haitian refugees looking for a better life capsized and sank off the Turks and Caicos Islands. A reported 200 passengers were aboard, and an estimated 85 are still missing. One survivor said the boat struck a reef as it tried to elude police, rescuers found 113 survivors on 2 reefs about 2 miles southwest of West Caicos Island.  Refugees routinely take to the seas in banged up, overcrowded boats in hopes of reaching the United States, the Bahamas, or the Turks and Caicos Islands to escape poverty in the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation.

Young Lords: Puerto Rican Movement.

The Young Lords

The Young Lords

The Young Lords was a Puerto Rican nationalist group that was active in several United States cities, mostly Chicago and New York. The Young Lords started off a street gang around Lincoln Park in Chicago. When they saw that urban renewal was throwing their families in the street, and police abuses getting crazy, they got involved in the Division Street Riots in 1966. Jose “Cha Cha” Jiminez one of the founding members, while incarcerated began studying texts from Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., Lenin, and Chairman Mao. Upon his release, he then began to reform the Young Lords to a political human rights movement. The Puerto Rican equivalent to the Black Panther Party. Check It…Holla.

Young Lords – ¡Palante, Siempre Palante!.

haiti2

The United Nations yesterday tabbed Bill Clinton, to be “Special Envoy” to the nation of Haiti. Strange considering he helped de-stabilize it in 1995, then the U.S., France and Canada helped oust Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004. Back on the subject, his appointment is meant to bring “World View” to the problems of the poorest nation in our hemisphere (Not By Accident). Did you know? Haiti was the first island in the Caribbean to fight for and attain it’s independence. Real recognize real. Peace.
