UN rape, pedophilia, sex slavery and enforced prostitution in Haiti

UN Forces in Haiti Rape Haiti Women and Girls – UN Massively Under Reports the Rapes, Sexual Tortures & Prostitution. Lie by Omission. Worst, the UN Minimizes and Normalizes the Abuse as “Transactional Sex” for food, water, medicine or as “Sex-For-Food” Scandal, not War Crimes.

Number of Children and Women Raped By UN Perpetrators In Haiti Are Vastly Understated

The Associated Press reported that UN perpetrators in Haiti were found, by a leaked UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) report, to have engaged in “transactional” sexual relationships for food, water and medicine with over 225 women and underage girls. The AP did not mention the “transactional sex” the UN perpetrators have with men and boys in Haiti. A third of the 225 sexual exploitation and abuse cases involved minors under 18.

First of all, the numbers of sexualized violence committed by UN perpetrators are vastly understated. If more than 5% of the Haitian population has been infected with UN cholera since 2010, the numbers are even more systematic and widespread for UN worker sexual abuse, violence and rape of Haiti people over the last 11-years since the US occupation, outsourced to the UN, began in 2004.  So, it’s pretty laughable to Haitians when we read that the UN report on its misconduct in Haiti finds only 225 “transactional sex” victims.

To understate the enormity of the sexualized violence horrors in Haiti, let’s just consider a mere 1% of the population in Haiti are subject to this vile and daily affront.

There are more than ten million Haitians in Haiti.  Based on the numbers of testimonies and widespread local reports on UN sexual abuse, violence and rape we are aware of, it’s safe to say that at least 1% of the population have been raped or, to use the UN euphemism, are having “transactional sex for aid” with the UN perpetrators. 1% per year over the last eleven-years of their presence. That’s 100,000 victims per year and 1,100,000 over an eleven year period and these figures are vastly understated. We’re just giving concerned citizens a truer look into the UN tyranny, support of sex trafficking, bullying, abuse of fiduciary responsibility, ethnic cleansing, degradation, indignities and national disempowerment Haitians are forced to endure and that’s hidden by theClintons’ aid debacles in Haiti, the Hollywood celebrity “feel-good” spiels about the aid racket, the fake elections under military occupation and the NGO-crisis caravan poverty pimps who take up most of the air time on Haiti.

It’s reported that UN peacekeepers have fathered an estimated 24, 500 babies in Cambodia and 6,600 in Liberia. Haiti hasn’t even began to count the numbers of children left behind since 2004.

Haiti Women, Girls Under Siege by UN Sexual Abusers

Worldwide, up to 50% of sexual assaults are committed against girls under the age of 16. The UN is a major factor in these assaults. Yet, it’s the arbiter for human rights in the world.

In Haiti, women, girls, boys, even men, cannot walk too far away from their homes without encountering a UN soldier trying to flag them down for sexualized violence, what the UN wants to downplay, for legal reasons, as not a crime but “transactional sex.”

There are UN bases doted all round Haiti, a country not at war and with less violence than all 14 of the tourist-bound Caribbean Island nations put together. Besides, the 52 nations that provide nearly 9,000 military and police personnel for the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (“MINUSTAH”), there are at least 18 other UN organizations with offices in Haiti. The UN is omnipresent in Haiti, along with tens of thousands of charitable organizations.

UN Rapes are Widespread, It’s Not Transactional Sex, Not Food-For-Sex-Scandal But Legally Punishable Criminal Actions

Sexualized UN violence is not “transactional sex” as trumpeted by the media and the UN.  It’s not sex. It’s rape. Rape cannot be consented to.

The UN cannot have it both ways. It cannot recognize the inherently unequal power dynamics between staff and beneficiaries, between protector and the protected and report that enforced prostitution and rape are “transactional sex.” The very wording of the report further abuses the victims, self-servingly protects UN legitimacy and maintains the impunity of the perpetrators.

A man with a gun having exploitative and oftentimes torturous physical activities with a native of a country he’s supposed to be bringing justice and democracy to; a foreigner in authority with access to money, medicine, clean water, employment power and other basic life necessities and resources, voids out consent. The power is too unequal for adult consent to be effective. As for the children, minors cannot give consent.

The UN report has not even been released and we can readily see their narrative is touted to hide the shocking horrors of UN misconduct in Haiti.

“The rape and destruction of Haiti and Afrikan peoples goes un-reported behind their charity facades. And when the physical rapes gets reported, the headlines frame it, not as rape of children or poor people but “Sex-for-Food Scandals” or the UN gives them their title “Transactional Sex.” The media parrots it, with little scrutiny. Like most of the human rights organizations, the corporate media is mostly funded and beholden to empire also.” — Excerpted from Ezili’s Comment Two: Regarding Sean Penn Huffignton Post article titled: “Our Cross to Bear” at Huffington Post

It’s a good thing that HuffPost Live was courageous enough to interview an expert indigenous Haiti voice on this issue.

Watch this HuffPost Live interview with Ezili Dantò on UN rape and prostitution broadcast June 11, 2015. “A draft United Nations report reveals new details on “transactional sex” by U.N. Peacekeepers, with some of the most startling findings concerning Haiti. Ezili Dantò, a human rights lawyer, joins to discuss the report.”

UN has History Of Covering-Up Its Sexualized Violence In Haiti

Most UN sexual abuse cases that are reported are covered-up, buried in fake investigations to taper-down public outrage.  The UN’s culture of silence and endless “reports” are matched only by the complicity of the human rights organizations and the aid-industrial complex‘ silence about the crimes against humanity perpetrated in Haiti. country, not at war and with less violence than any other Caribbean nation. Charges of UN underreporting the numbers of UN peacekeepers involved in illegal sex are not new.

From the archives and eye witness reports of the Ezili Dantò Witness Project, we know dozens upon dozens of cases, where the Haiti police and the parents of victims, were intimidated by UN personnel or paid-off to keep quiet when their children or wives were raped, tortured, or forced into sexual slavery.

In this French language video, the child advocate explains that little Haiti girls ages, from 4 to 10 years old, are taken off the streets, from their little homes and put into brothels, or forced to have sex, sometimes by their guardians who sell them to the UN soldiers and others. Haitian authorities are mostly in total denial, simply turning their heads so that they don’t lose the approvals and dollars of the global white domination system.

In fact, instead of denouncing the UN rapes and calling on the puppet Haiti president to sue the UN for committing these crimes; instead of protecting Haiti women and children, 71 Haitians have posted their candidacy and are running as candidates to be ELECTED as the next puppet president of militarily occupied Haiti.

Defining the Crime: UN Abuse of Fiduciary Power, the Legalized Ethnic Cleansing of Haiti

Ezili’s Haitian Lawyers Leadership Network (HLLN) and the Free Haiti Movement has been gathering UN rape victim testimonies and speaking out against the UN rapes and sexual abuse for over a decade, since they got to Haiti in 2004. Mostly, no one in power would echo our concerns. Not until very recently. Even so, it’s been lots of lip service about investigating the complaints and great fanfare about issuing “reports.”  But, there are mostly no UN actions taken to make the victims whole, provide long-term health care and counseling for rape victims, child support for the tens of thousands of UN/MINUSTAH babies left behind or to curtail the rapes, sodomy and violent pedophilia crimes and sexual abuses by UN personnel, not just in Haiti but across the globe.

The fact of the matter is that UN sexual activity in Haiti is rape, pedophilia, sexual exploitation, enforced prostitution, supporting sex trafficking, enforced sterilization, forced pregnancy, ethnic cleansing, and in most cases, sexual slavery.

All, are crimes, not fair exchanges between relatively equally situated consenting adults. There’s a dictatorship and military occupation in Haiti, no sovereignty. And, since we know Haiti has been defined by the UN Chapter 7 mission there, as a war zone, a conflict zone, then a strict application of international law, renders the widespread and systematic rape of Haiti minors, women, girls, boys, men in Haiti as a crime against humanity. Rape is a war crime.

Since rape is a war crime when widespread and done in a conflict situation, the legal liability issue explains why widespread and systematic rape of Haiti minors and women are minimized in UN reports as “transactional sex.” The UN places itself above the law with semantics, cover-ups and a culture of silence about the horrors visited upon the Haitian people by UN police, soldier and their other powerful representatives. Notwithstanding the obfuscations, sexual violence is used as a tool of war.

It’s also Theft and Public Fraud

Imagine, some of the UN perpetrators are withholding aid – donated food, medicine, clean water and supplies – that they have a moral responsibility to provide for free to a population in crisis. Using donated supplies for personal use is thievery and a public fraud.

When the UN perpetrators use their own monies or gifts of cell phones or laptops, clothes, et al, to bribe minors or adults into giving them access to Black bodies, besides committing the crimes of rape, pedophilia, enforced prostitution and sometimes forced pregnancy and sexual slavery, they’re violating their fiduciary responsibility. The US soldiers and charity workers actually bring in porn videos and all sorts of sexual paraphernalia into Haiti to teach their young Haiti victims how to better service their appetites.

Quiet Genocide: The Aid Racket in Haiti.

By minimizing the gravity of withholding basic necessities for organized, unfettered access to Haiti bodies, and calling it “have-money-will-buy” (transactional sex), the UN is adding stigma to injury for the Haiti women and girls. “Prostitution is legal in France,” some of the international perps will say. This normalizes the sexualized violence in Haiti to just an inappropriate behavior. It implies there’s a fair trade when a child of four or six can be bought by a UN perpetrator, for a bottle of clean water, for a $1. Or, a mother forced to subject her body to any harm from the UN perpetrator in exchange for diapers for her babies has express legal consent. This is a horrifying spectacle to subject any human being to, as well as a systematic public fraud when these perpetrators hold themselves out as “peacekeepers.”

Essentially, the UN is a colonial enterprise. Rape and/or the gun-toting sexual release of the UN soldier, police and other foreign personnel -who’ve taken away Haiti sovereignty- are merely the spoils of war. Except, in Haiti, there is no war.

Haiti is the only UN mission with a Chapter 7, shoot-to-kill mission where there is no armed conflict, no peace agreement for peacekeepers to mediate. Haiti people are targeted as dispensable. The UN and the charitable industrial complex are covers for US-Euro colonialism, thievery, pillage and resource plunder.

Rape, Sexual torture, Enforced Prostitution, Forced Pregnancy and Sexual Slavery

Rape terrorizes the victim, breaks up families, destroys communities, spread sexually transmitted foreign diseases and, with all the UN babies being born in Haiti, along with the culture of porn and prostitution imported with the soldiers, the charitable institutions and other white settlers, the foreigners are changing the ethnic make-up of the next generation of Haitians.

Unfortunately making poor people sick gives the pharmaceutical industry that the charity workers work for, more reason to buy their own vaccines and drugs. More excuses to stay in Haiti.

The apologists for empire, cloaked in the robe of humanitarian, take turns moving donation monies around to themselves, like the nearly $3 million the Red Cross funneled to the inexperienced Sean Penn organization. Once funded, these powerful colonial apologists work to pull the world’s attention away from the atrocities being committed against the nation and peoples of Haiti.

The Haitian Lawyers Leadership has tracked these abuses, rapes and sexual slavery horrors and written about their effects on Haitian society and the already traumatized population for eleven years. (See, Jordanian soldier who brutally rape and sodomized a Haitian mother of five in Haiti; You may read: Haitian lawyers condemn impunity for Sri Lankan soldiers; The Collar of Impunity: Sexual abuse of Haiti children by Priests, Charity Workers; Or, consult some HLLN links from the last eleven decades at: UN Peacekeepers and Humanitarian Aid Workers raping, molesting and abusing Haitian children.)

The UN cannot have it both ways. It cannot get paid, over half-a-billion per year, to be in a “conflict zone” as its chapter 7 mission defines Haiti and have soldiers massively raping women and girls but not be subject to liability for this as a war crime.
