Letter to Sarah Teather MP concerning US military diversion of relief in Haiti

January 21, 2010

Dear Sarah Teather,

Once again I thank you for all of your continued efforts and for all of your responses to my many messages, particularly the last one concerning Peak Oil. I must now bring your attention to an urgent matter, that of the humanitarian crisis in Haiti.

The US military is now occupying Haiti in earnest. US Commanders are actually turning away legitimate relief in favour of controlling the population for private, moneyed interests and to prevent refugees from entering the US. This is indicative of disaster capitalism and must not be tolerated by the international community. The following links illustrate these claims:

  1. Haiti’s suffering is a result of calculated impoverishment
  2. Doctors group complains Haiti supplies diverted
  3. Things to Remember While Helping Haiti
  4. In Rebuilding Haiti, Opportunity Knocks and Companies Profit
  5. What You’re Not Hearing about Haiti (But Should Be)

I urge you to raise this issue in Parliament and call for an an international forum demanding that the US government put a stop to these actions immediately and instead focus efforts on routing humanitarian aid to those who need it.

Yours sincerely,
Seth Mowshowitz
