Description of mail list:

On February 29, 2004, the constitutional government of Haiti was overthrown by a combined Haitian paramilitary assault and foreign military intervention. The latter included the armed forces of the United States, Canada and France.

Following the 2004 overthrow, the United Nations Security Council authorized a military force of some 9,000 foreign police and military to take control of Haiti. It is known by its French acronym, MINUSTAH. It includes a parallel political administration. Since the January 12, 2010 earthquake, MINUSTAH's numbers increased. Poverty and hunger in Haiti worsened under international watch.

Conditions of life have worsened indescribably since the earthquake. The international relief effort has failed to reach hundreds of thousands of victims left homeless and the country still awaits its promised "reconstruction."
