Learn that the death of the Emperor Jean-Jacques 1st was commemorated for the first time, October 17, 1845 by President Pierrot but it was not until 1892, the President Hypollite had built at Pont-Rouge a mausoleum bearing the inscription: “ Jean-Jacques Dessalines, founder of the Independence of Haiti. Died in 1806 at the age of 48. In testimony of admiration and gratitude for the memorable act of January 1, 1804 “ He was hated, misunderstood and hated by the designers of the system peze souse kowonpi because of which today, blood, sweat and tears are shed every day on these “peaceful battlefields.” Dessalines, believed to be Haiti's greatest head of state, relied on on engagements with its uncompromising partners, one of the causes of the plot executed on the morning of October 17, 1806.
No other liberator in the world of a people as oppressed and marginalized as ours was in the 19th century , like the Emperor Jean-Jacques Dessalines, had a sad end. There were no official funerals, no national mourning, no inquiry into his death, a plot against the state when the young nation he led advocated for the establishment of principles of law, freedom and equality for all. An entirely different system of governance with the people and for the people.
His immediate successors delighted him to the point of prohibiting for 39 years that his name be pronounced or quoted in any political, public or private conversation after his cruel assassination in the gates of Port-au-Prince, early in the morning. morning of October 17, 1806. On October 17, 2019, the sons of Father de la Patrie want to seal an alliance, a real integration that goes through the Dessalinian dream while considering returning to the starting square and systematically examining each of the elements composing the system a real obstacle to the real development of Haiti led since the beginning of time by puppets from which one draws the strings. Valets, lackeys who call themselves generals or still presidents.
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 ((rezonodwes.com)) .- Without running the risk of being deceived, we remember a sentence of a licensed notary living in a large city of the province. “ There is almost no more to say that it never existed, a single title of property whose original act does not go back to a former general of the War of Independence “Is to tell us that the subdivision of the country, two years after its independence, was held to heart by the new masters. And woe to him who put himself on the cross on their way from where the tragedy of the Red Bridge and the beginning of the end of the enjoyment of our rights as a free and independent nation.
With the death of Dessalines, barely 46 years old in 1806, who had not asked to die that day with the dreams of great projects ideal and ambitious for the country, this unfortunate mistake thoughtless of a group of envious, has until today his ascendants on our life of people. At the threshold of the twentieth century, the display of this behavior of arrears of individuals unable to take our destiny in hand was specified. We ourselves have paved the way for occupation, in which only the actors of the past are replaced. And on November 17, 2019, 213 years later since we murdered the Emperor, we did not leave the inn. This episode is reincarnated in the life of today, in our acts, our prompt attitudes to make alliance with the oppressor.
After the assassination of Dessalines October 17, 1806, the country on the edge of the split plunged in the division because of a class struggle for power, we had missed the celebration of our independence, January 1, 1807. Ironiness of history, October 17, 2019 brings us back more than 200 years, with the only difference ready, there was not yet a Senate that vilifies its constituents, mints its votes, while seeking to legitimize the presence of armed foreigners on the national territory under the pretext of ratification of a “ agreement “ having no reason to be. Dessalines, whose stateless people, the hypocrites boast of resuscitation in the memory of Haitians, was a forgotten history for almost 40 years after his cowardly assassination.
The country must “the date of October 17” to President
Pierre-Louis Pierrot who commemorated the death of Dessalines for the
first time on October 17, 1845
Haitian President Jean-Louis Pierrot, hated Port-au-Princiens
for having moved the seat of government to Cap-Haitien, during
his reign from April 1845 to May 1846, had a great merit as history
will never forget. This is to make October 17, a holiday in
Haiti, in memory of an illustrious disappeared. The October 17, 2015
derided by the Tet kale1 regime, had not done honor to
the human dimension of Dessalines which aimed at the constitution of a
nation only petty and peculiar interests.
This date of commemoration should be the only real day off,
January 1 and 12, February 7 and
Mother's Day that we should only celebrate in Haiti, a country where
most of the population, of working age, find themselves
Why did we wait 39 years after his death to talk about his main benefits buried in the blindness of his peers to become new settlers. One wonders where were the former generals-presidents of Haiti who made the War of Independence next to Jean-Jacques Dessalines. None of them had previously wanted to honor the memory of this illustrious personage, cowardly murdered after a conspiracy against him at the Pont Rouge on October 17, 1806. Were they accomplices in his assassination? This investigation, which never began, nevertheless culminated in the preamble to the 1807 Constitution, in which other heroes of the Altar of the Fatherland openly criticized his attitude, forgetting the atrocities of the colonists and the slaves they took for themselves. beasts of burden.
The foundations laid of the construction of a Nation created enemies to the Emperor
Jean-Jacques Dessalines, the Father-Founder of our Nation, would still have may have known a sweet end of life like George Washington who liberated America from the English dynasty for their strong taste of exorbitant taxation to the point that the Tea Party had been already known in the nineteenth century in the ports of Boston. On October 17, 1806, the life of the man who suffered the yoke of slavery was prematurely ended and he swore to put an end to it. In the aftermath of October 17, 1806, another system is set in motion for the misfortune of future generations. Since then it has been rooted in Haitian politics, delaying the development of the country by more than two centuries.
Unlike the heroes of the Independence of the United States, who
were plantation owners where slaves lived, the
fighters for the struggle of our Independence were themselves the
slaves, except for a few privileged freedmen. They had come out
with dignity by force to fight the oddness and make a reality
the Universal Declaration of Human and Citizen Rights published
in 1789 and adopted on December 10, 1948 in Paris where Haiti had responded
present at the invitation
Dessalines, returning from a trip to the South, in a vain attempt to keep the country united under one leadership, knew that he was no longer loved by all and that it was finished the honeymoon of January 1, 1804 when the euphoria was in full swing at Gonaives. He had sounded the alarm, thinking he could subdue any rebellion. Pity! He was surrounded by a vicious circle, proud, ambitious and submissive. At his death, Haiti became what it is today 'a divided country just like the time of Christophe in the North, Petion in the West and Rigaud in the South. There is a constant struggle to maintain power and to satisfy the ambitions that regulated cuts of meager riches have incited.
And even today, the effects are palpable. About twenty elaborate Constitutions, including that of 1987 has survived longer without having been fully applied as a whole. The country is still looking for credible men and women, not mercenaries, to integrate the future Permanent Electoral Council . The corruption is at its peak as on the eve of October 17, 1806 with many false impressions of property titles, an act that did not have good press in the eyes of the Emperor.
17 October 1806, an irreparable tragedy of our people's history?
History, including the first chapters written from a
oral literature and following interviews conducted by Thomas Madiou,
who wrote the first pages of History of Haiti reports that the remains of the Emperor, scattered on the roadway, had been picked up by an old fool named Parade .
What a shame for a young nation fresh out of slavery.
This assassination proved just how difficult and difficult it always was
to make profound changes at home. We can even pay
his life the initiative of such a turnaround
What a sad fate for Dessalines. He was dead as he had lived,
the struggle for survival. He tried to escape after a soldier
frightened and trembling with fear blue would have fired on his august
nobody. Abandoned and forgotten by his peers and as if his disappearance
was going to solve the problems for which he was reproached and that he did not
did not generate itself.
False property titles still exist today for better
appropriating State property, squandering public funds,
signature of agreements without calls for tenders, votes diverted … S '
monopolizing de facto power was the only thing that preoccupied the
spirit of Haitian politicians since the death of Dessalines in 1806.
Dessalines, even when he ordered the massacre of the French in Haiti,
for fear that his people will become slaves again, with a charisma that we
knows, spared the lives of religious, professionals,
professors … do not dislike the historians who are better
portrait of Toussaint Louverture. These foreigners remained on the spot
could be the basis of the plot that overthrew the first empire of
Haiti, because most were trained at their school (Pétion, Rigaud …)
Thank you President Pierrot, thanks to this heroic act posited in 1845, the Emperor is no longer a forgotten history.
The act accomplished by President Pierrot nicknamed Port-au-Prince “Port-au-Crime”
and by being, if no corrective action is taken by the head of the
PNH, about to become again in 2017 after the departure of the helmets
blue, is one of the hallmarks of his government even when it
wanted to show some people supremacy of colors
(mulattoes), most of which are fruits of forced relations
adulterine between the white colonist and the black-slave woman
October 17 should be seen as a day of reflection and
meditation for all Haitians by the manifestation of their
dissatisfaction, their apprehension of our state of people in this
second decade of the 21st century where we still do our needs
even the ground.
One can always manage to murder a man but not his ideas, one
Dr. Martin L. King, who wanted the man to be
judged from the content of his thoughts not according to the color of the

less. A great visionary was gone. His dreams, his aspirations
just as his remains separated into several pieces are always
scattered through our inner lutes.
Who will be the next Parade arrived unexpectedly to gather all our separated brothers under the banner of the flag of Jean-Jacques Dessalines? In any case, it will not be by improvising programs of government without combining idealism with realism, while not putting in place any system of justice and governability real country shaken by corruption and plunged into greater misery.
Papa Dessalines, when is it finally, could we say “ Rest in peace “! Vinn di yon kichoy au nou because they no longer have the sense of shame and, worse, they are without qualms. Your country is going badly, we have drawn lots of the riches of its subsoil and “ the sons whose fathers are in Africa, have not received anything yet “. And we still feel a little embarrassed to say that the commanders of today are sons of former slaves of yesterday!
