The Mobile Institute for Democratic Education (IMED) of which Kettly Julien is the executive director says vehemently condemns the armed attack orchestrated on the night of Sunday 20 to Monday 21 September 2020 against the premises of the defense organization of human rights Zanmi Timoun Foundation. The organization which works in the defense of the fundamental rights of the human person qualifies this act as scandalous and expresses its
its revulsion in the face of this phenomenon of intolerance which is rampant among the Haitian population and
which continues to wreak havoc all over the country. “Intolerance is a source of disrespect for opposing ideas stemming from violence and carnage. IMED strongly recommends that the conflicts within our society, where there are centrifugal forces and centripetal forces, be resolved by the voice of
dialogue, because dialogue is the bulwark of the Republic ”, one reads in a press release sent to our editorial staff.
For the body, too much blood, too much hatred, too much individualism, too much self-interest have marked the last 4
decades of our history as a people. And not enough results! We are floundering << nan chimen pedi tan >> The Republic is on fire and we are looking elsewhere, he said. IMED demands from the established authorities a celerate and impartial investigation, in order to identify the perpetrators of this inadmissible act which is none other than fascism.
IMED says it believes that democracy is not a single thought. ” It provides us with rights and duties.It implies respect for private property.It is accompanied, also and above all, by a spirit of tolerance guaranteeing social peace, freedom of conscience for the establishment of a society posed equitably, ”he reminds himself.
Too bad, proclaims IMED, we are painfully witnessing the death of ideas. The dialectic of weapons replaces the weapon of the dialectic, he said. The villainous assassination of the President of the Bar and the armed attack against the office of the Zanmi Timoun Foundation, this 20-year-old children's rights organization, must challenge the conscience of every Haitian. These odious acts weaken the meager gains of this democratization process, oh! How difficult, affirms this position signed by Madame Julien.
“The persecutions, wherever they come from against those who do not think like us, represent an
anti-democratic act”, argues the IMED in stressing that a nation is an intergenerational construction made up of fraternity, belonging, and above all tolerance, and this spiritual and social virtue constitutes one of the pillars of a robust democracy. For the outbreak
of a < communauté de bonheur > according to the beautiful expression of André Malraux.
