Canadian Banks and Economic Control in the Caribbean

Caribbean

In December 2011, it was reported that the Royal Bank of Canada and the Bank of Nova Scotia were both exploring a return to Cuba under the financial reforms of Raul Castro, more than 50 years after they had been expelled by his brother Fidel. Canadian banks operating in the Caribbean are nothing new, however, the Royal Bank of Canada proudly claims that it had branches in the Caribbean before it had opened any in Western Canada.

Enough is enough: let us all demand an end to the UN occupation of Haiti

Caribbean

MINUSTAH has been in Haiti since 2004, supposedly on humanitarian grounds. Yet, they should have never gone there. In any case, the list of their achievements is indeed queer for what is supposedly “humanitarian” intervention. Sure, we know there is no such a thing as “humanitarian” intervention. Superpowers always intervene out of their own interests, not because it is best for the oppressed and impoverished majority. They intervene where they see business opportunities, and they don’t hesitate to crush (on “humanitarian” grounds) any local resistance to their grand designs. We’ve seen this pattern of behaviour time and again. But poor Haiti... no-one has had it as hard as they have.
