What you are looking at is the popular Lavalas leader, Jean Bertrand Aristide showing his love for the people who came to support him during his court hearing.
This is Champ de Mars in Port-au-Prince where he waved to cheering crowds. The former president was moving from his slow-moving, police-escorted motorcade.
here is Former president Jean Bertrand Aristide as his crowd was taking him to the neighborhood of Bel Air and St. Martin after his court hearing on May 8, 2013. These neighborhoods are known for gangs and insecurity. He took the opportunity to blow kisses from the rooftop of his SUV to them
Here is former Haitian President and still popular leader of the Lavalas political Party, Jean Bertrand Aristide, with the supporting crowd, following his court hearing. He was accompanied by several elected officials such as Moise Jean Charles, John Joel Joseph, MP Saurel hyacinth. Dr. Maryse Narcisse who was at all time with the former lavalas leader, said that: "The Haitian people love him and today they showed their affection and attachment to him,"
For the first time since his return from Exile, former Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide has a chance to greet his supporters. Whether it was mistake from the current power in place of just having the judicial system to work independently, Aristide took the opportunity to tour Port-au-Prince. It came following a three-hour, closed-door hearing with a Haitian investigative judge.
Aristide was summoned as part of the ongoing murder investigation of the unsolved assassination of famous journalist Jean Léopold Dominique.
Did you expect to see a picture like this in our lifetime? The current president Michel Martelly meets with Jean Bertrand Aristide on Wednesday, October 12, 2011.
The two leaders appear to be fun of eachother. This was not the case a few years ago when Michel Martelly was openly opposed to the presidency of Jean Bertrand Aristide.
However, it seems that the past stays in the past and both Michel Martelly and Jean Bertrand Aristide are willing to forget about the past for a better future for Haiti
It is interesting to see how two of the most controversial leaders in Haiti manage to have so much in common. In this, I want to refer to Former Haitian Dictator Jean Claude Duvalier and former president Jean Bertrand Aristide. Take a look as the following striking similarities:
1) Both Jean Claude Duvalier & Jean Bertrand Aristide have passionate fanatics
2) Both have been accused of making million by stealing from the government.
3) Both Jean Claude Duvalier and Jean Bertrand Aristide went on exile.
4) Duvalier and Aristide came back from exile within the same year.
5) Duvalier & Aristide were visited at home by Michel Martelly.
6) On February 28, 2013, Jean-Claude Duvalier went to Court. On May 8, 2013, Aristide went to Court.
Does that mean, if one goes to prison, the other would follow?
In the process of rebuilding his political party, Former Haitian Jean Bertrand Aristide seem to be pulling some big guns. It has been reported that the Morses family is considering to become candidate in the next election in Haiti. according to Associated Press, Lunise Morse of RAM, wife of Richard Morse is considering to run for Senate in the next election in Haiti. The family has been in conversation with Jean Bertrand Aristide to join his political party Fanmi Lavalas. Accosding to Richard Morse, the family has met with Aristide three times to discuss the possibility for Lunise Exume Morse, to run under the Lavalas party
On 6 January 1991, as president Jean Bertrand Aristide was declared winner of the election, following the exile of Jean-Claude Duvalier, a coup D'Etat was orchestrated by Roger Lafontant, a Tonton Macoute leader. The coup D'Etat was done to pre-empt an Aristide presidency took place. Following the coup, Roger Lafontant, seized the provisional president Ertha Pascal-Trouillot and declared himself president.
This was a short lived action. The Haitian population and a large numbers of Aristide supporters took to the streets to protest the Coup D'Etat. Roger Lafontant declared martial law. However, under the commend of General Herard Abraham, the Haitian army crushed the incipient coup and reestablished order
Here is a picture of Jean Bertrand Aristide with Nelson Mandela. The African Icon Nelson Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1944 and was heavily involved in popular resistance against the ruling National Party's apartheid policies after 1948.
After his political party, the ANC, was banning of in 1960, Nelson Mandela moved to the military wing within the ANC. Nelson Mandela was arrested in 1962 and sentenced. Later on, on June 12, 1964, Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment.
