  1. It beyond my comprehension why the countries and the colonies (PUERTO RICO, JAMAICA, VIRGIN ISLANDS and CUBA, ETC.) keep celebrating the continuous inclusion at long term of resources of such an impoverished territory as Haiti in events which clearly Haiti cannot afford due to the pauperimous status of the country. . All those geographical locations mentioned above are under the financial control of the United States, the UN Elite controlled organism and the EU. Cuba is being completely intervened through a shameful financial blockade by the USA. Puerto Rico is an openly acknowledged colony of the USA. As democratized and “WELFARIZED” AS IT IS this well known territory in the Caribbean still is depending of the
    GRINGO MASTERS to declared its political status. VIRGIN ISLANDS is nothing than spy center for the PURE COLONIAL interests of the United Sates of America. We can say that the whole region is nothing but a colonial enclave under the BOOTS of both THE USA and the EU with full and shameful approval of the UN. CUT THE CRAP WITH RHE CELEBRATIONS,
