B&WFeaturedStoryHaiti – The Ongoing Struggle by Giles Clarke

The last 230 years of Haiti's history, from the days of Napoleonic slavery and the ensuing 'black revolution', is a struggle etched deep into the soul of the Haitian people. In 1804, after years of colonial fighting and over 120,000 slave deaths

“Listen to our cries,
Observe all the fear and devastation that surround us.
Listen to our hearts beating, pounding loudly.
Without hope, how in the world can we cope?
Many of us have lost faith and many of us too have found it.
God, how could this be, why me, why our country? “

(From ‘Hope for Haiti’ – by Haitian poet Marckincia Jean written in 2015)

'THE EPICENTER'- LEOGANE, HAITI. JANUARY 19, 2015. An unposed moment of a young man on his motorcycle outside the crumbling ruin of a building in Leogane, some 25 miles from the Haitian capital of Port-Au-Prince. Following the devastating 7.0 earthquake in January 2010, a United Nations disaster-response assessment team reported that this was 'the worst-hit area' with over 25,000 deaths and upward of 80% of all concrete structures destroyed.

The last 230 years of Haiti’s history, from the days of Napoleonic slavery and the ensuing ‘black revolution’, is a struggle etched deep into the soul of the Haitian people.

In 1804, after years of colonial fighting and over 120,000 slave deaths, the Haitian Republic was born after France finally surrendered to local slave resistance leaders. The new Haiti Republic then immediately abolished slavery and soon became a center of inspiration for slave freedom everywhere.

Despite being the oldest ‘Black Republic’ in the world, Haiti has since been enslaved in many other ways – mostly by brutal dictators, subversive Western Government influence and the resulting deep corruption and social oppression. This long-standing instability has forced Haiti onto a long and bitter road in its seemingly endless struggle for freedom.
More recently, the massively destructive 7.0 earthquake in 2010, which killed over 230,000 people, left deeply troubled nation on its knees once more. In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew then hit the western part of the island causing catastrophic damage and killed more than 800 people. A few days after the hurricane passed through, the severely-affected region was then facing cholera and another huge wave of despair and misery.

This photo story, created after multiple visits to the country over the past three years, are moments that depict the Ongoing struggle that Haiti faces today.

'RIDING WITH UN PEACEKEEPERS' - CITE SOLEIL, PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI. JANUARY 10, 2015. A young boy runs after and shouts at UN Peacekeepers while on patrol in a troubled neighborhood of downtown Port-Au-Prince. Following the 2010 earthquake, a United Nations peacekeeping base upstream from the capital was later found out to be the source of what became the worst cholera outbreak in the beleaguered nation's history. The Brazilian UN Peacekeepers pictured here are part of a revolving peacekeeping force that have been stationed in Haiti since 2006 following the breakdown of the then Aristide government and military rule.

'CHOLERA AFTER HURRICANE MATTHEW' - LES CAYES, HAITI. OCTOBER 15, 2016. A tired relative of a cholera victim holds up an intravenous plastic bottle in Cholera Treatment Center in downtown Les Cayes - a town largely cut-off from road supply routes following Hurricane Matthew. There were no IV stands available in the ramshackle clinic from which to hang the dwindling stock of much-needed hydration bottles.

'CITY MORGUE OVERFLOW' - PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI. MAY 7, 2015. A man, a woman and her baby lie dead next to a wall outside the city morgue. They were lying behind a wooden board that when pulled back revealed the bodies. I was told by morgue workers close-by that continual power cuts (corpse refrigeration) and lack of city funds for proper disposal meant that bodies would be stored crudely until family members came to claim the bodies. In many case however, bodies were left unclaimed so were buried in mass graves later. Haitian culture prevents cremation.

'UNMARKED SHALLOW GRAVES' - PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI. MAY 7, 2015. In the hills of Titanyen, some 10 km outside of Port-Au-Prince, lie the crudely wrapped bodies that were illegally deposited in mass graves by health officials using private contracted disposal companies. When the local residents tried to stop the late night dumping of these bodies, they were dispersed by the Haitian national police with tear gas just a few days before this image was taken. In a twist of grim irony, many of these residents who had moved from the earthquake rubble to these peaceful hills five years earlier, were now being confronted with the morbid hell from which they escaped.
