The Press Only Likes Fresh Blood and the Blood in Haiti is Drying

Good morning. Sky,overcast,occasional planes overhead. Rooster crows. The Press is starting to filter out.Today is Monday. Banks give us weekdays.

If they hand out food in one area,when do they get back to that area? Tomorrow, two days? Next week? Never? How long is the hand out?

Carnival creates employment & business: Carpenters, welders, painters, musicians,dj’s,hardware stores,advertisers,tv stations radio’s,vendors.

I’ve heard that US Citizens can bring a Haitian relative back to the States but there are probably certain conditions.

A Haitian day of Prayer and Thanks is a wonderful idea with all of Haiti’s religions coming together.

I’m not trying to sell anyone on Carnaval. I want to understand how cultural traditions get us through hard times. Carnaval is more than dancing: Haitians flying to Haiti, car rentals, recording studios, ti marchands, gwo marchand, hotels, more people to pitch in, strength in numbers: Carnaval.

Eventually GREEN ZONE/RED ZONE in Haiti will becom an embarrassment. It’s part of the Haitian politics of MONOPOLIES. Everything goes two a few.

Food distribution meeting today. Looks like we’ll be getting kits of food to distribute by the end of the week.

I’m still getting calls for tents.

A photographer friend of mine told me the press is leaving because they only like fresh blood.  The blood in Haiti is drying.

I don’t think random people should decide Haiti’s future in the next couple of weeks. Plans for PauP should be submitted & decisions should be made over time.

Most Pre-Quake projects (including elections) were pre-decided. The Haitian population is tired of all the corruption and cronyism. They’re convinced the Govt buildings were destroyed because of corruption.

The corruption isn’t limited just to Haitians. People in the International Community are also involved. Saying nothing means approval.

RAM will start rehearsing soon but we want to do some food distribution first. The people who suffer around Haiti are our fans. We were lucky.

Don’t forget Kenscoff; needs help. Blankets, tents, medical supplies. Email Regine.Zamor@gmail.com.
