Happy New Year and Happy Haitian 213th Independence Day (January 1, 1804-Present)
Haiti: Then and Now would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and Happy Haitian 213th Independence Day (January 1, 1804-Present)
"We must, with one last act of national authority, forever assure the empire of liberty in the country of our birth; we must take any hope of re-enslaving us away from the inhuman government that for so long kept us in the most humiliating torpor. In the end we must live independent or die.
Independence or death… may these sacred words bind us and be the signal for battle and our reunion."--Jean-Jacques Dessalines, Founder of the Republic and Nation of Haiti
