Qui est Justima?: Un homme qui voit le côté positif des choses et qui part en guerre contre l'idée fataliste qu'Haïti qui est sans cesse dans une descente et chute libre mystiques depuis 200 ans ne se resaisira pas dans les 5 prochaines années pour commencer à réussir une ascencion matérielle et mentale qui va étonner le monde. Un homme de croyances profondes et de principes qui part en guerre contre notre instabilité politico-sociale chronique, désordre institutionnel systémique généralisé, dysfonctionnement économique total et qui dit qu'Haïti a besoin d'un pouvoir volontariste fort pour combler le retard et le mal-developpement de plus de 200 ans. Un homme de famille qui croit que si le plus petit noyau d'Haïtiens qui est la famille connaisse un renouveau et re-apprenne à tisser entre ses membres des liens de confiance et de constance solides et durables ceci refairait fractalement la société haïtienne et le tissu social haïtien et augmenterait exponentiellement le capital social sur lequel on doit lever une nouvelle nation. Un homme qui adore chanter, danser, faire à manger, voyager et qui adore aimer. Justima est le second plus jeune ancien Candidat à la Présidence d'Haiti.

Justima has launched his Political Blog/Justima a lancé son Blog Politique

Justima like most Statesmen and Political Leaders of our times is using the Blog for a direct one and one with Haitians in Haiti and Haitians abroad as well as a direct one and one with Friends of Haiti of every nationality, black and white, under the sun who are puzzled by why Haiti seems to be so stuck and by what it will take to unstuck it for good.

This is the first official blog put out by a political personality of Haiti, proof positive that there is a new breed emerging in Haiti which will consecrate the victory of the future over the traditional, of the modern over the archaic.

(Learn more about Who is Justima/Qui est Justima?

The Blog has elements in four (4) languages: English, French, Creole and Spanish. When you find something in one language, keep on scrolling, you might find it in the language you desire. Or just e-mail Justima and his staff at: and they would gladly point you to it or e-mail it to you.

What is a blog?
Mostly for the non-initiated French speaking Haitians.

"Blog" is short for Web log, which can be anything from a news site to an online journal.
It is a space where you can publish your thoughts, get feedback, share photos, and interact instantaneously with we world in what’s called “blogosphere”. It will be in this case both a personal diary for me and a political soap box for you and me.

Since Blog was launched 5 years ago, blogs have reshaped the web, impacted politics, and enabled millions to have a voice and to connect one and one with the people they want as their leaders.

Blog est un diminutif de l’expression Web log. Un log est quelque part où l’on consigne des notes personnelles ou des notes de travail. Un Blog peut être un journal sur le web ou un espace d’inter-échange politique entre les idées de celui qui les publie et vos commentaires postés sur ses réflexions. C’est le monde de la “blogosphère”.

Cinquante millions de blogs ont été recensés sur internet en juillet 2006, un chiffre multiplié par 100 en trois ans, selon une étude publiée en ligne par le moteur de recherche Technorati qui mesure périodiquement l'évolution de la blogosphère.Entre janvier 2004 et juillet 2006, le nombre de blogs comptabilisés par le site ( sur le net a doublé de manière constante tous les 5 à 7 mois. Si ce rythme se maintenait, la blogosphère compterait 100 millions de blogs en février 2007, selon Technorati. En juillet 2006, on comptait 175.000 nouveaux blogs par jour, 7.200 par heure soit une moyenne de plus de deux blogs créés par seconde.Au 30 juin 2006, Technorati avait comptabilisé quelque 1,6 million de messages postés sur blogs par jour, 67.000 par heure et environ 18,6 messages par seconde, soit le double du volume de messages comptabilisés un an plus tôt.Par ailleurs, Technorati note que l'anglais reste la langue dominante de la blogosphère et a même renforcé son avance, avec un pic en mai, sur le japonais et le chinois depuis avril 2006. Au 30 juin 2006, la blogosphère comptait en effet 39% de blogs en anglais contre 41% un mois plus tôt et 34% en avril. Deuxième langue de la blogosphère, le japonais qui était au coude au coude avec l'anglais (33%) en avril, a perdu du terrain avec 31% des blogs en avril et en mai.Les blogs francophones occupent, sans varier depuis le mois d'avril, 2% de la blogosphère selon Technorati.

About Justima/A propos de Justima

Justima, who was the second youngest candidate to the Presidency of Haiti, during the last Presidential elections of February 2006, is someone who had extensively traveled both throughout Haiti and around the world to have discussions as much with ordinary Haitian folks (mostly the young, women and peasants) as with high-ranking foreign officials about why is Haiti so stuck and what it will seriously take to unstuck it for good.

Justima continues still, after the elections, with his preliminary discussions in Haiti and abroad.

He is being received now in many capitals of the world which start taking him very seriously and are opening the doors to him as a serious face of a possible transformational future of Haiti.

Justima engages in very high level discussions with high ranking Political, Academic, Journalists, Non-profit and Corporate people. His discussions center chiefly around security, around the Aristide factor and approach for his return, and around a fresh innovative approach to reinvent the police force, to anesthetize the kidnappers and to give an ecomonic breather to the masses.

To unstuck Haiti from its sempiternal crises, Justima proposes the world and Haitians the most comprehensive and carefully thought out new plan for the pacification and stabilization of every inch of the country but by a newly, well geographically-distributed, public force that will replace the demobilized Haitian army, called Citizens National Guard.

A plan that excites and is to be executed by the best Haitians military and security experts on the planet.

Justima also gets you going with his vision, as he takes care of the security issues, for a rapid and durable new model of voluntarist transformational, structural and infrastructural development of Haiti which can bring as much results as the Chilean model, as the Dubaï model, and as the Hong-Kong model.

(To Listen or to Hear Dr Justima live

Dr Emmanuel Justima and Pastor Chavannes Jeune and Dr Luc Fleurinord are three former Presidential Candidates at the last 2006 February presidential elections in Haiti and three emerging dominant figures in a new kind of Haitian politics.

They are trying to work collaboratively with colleagues to lead a coalition of 11 political parties, "the Block Alternative", into a "rapprochement" with modern international democratic parties with which the three leaders feel there is great affinity and like-minded purpose.

Justima says his aim is to renew the personnel of the political class in Haiti.

"Evil and thuggery triumph in Haitian politics because serious,morally-grounded and well-prepared people give ground and give up on Haiti. Decisions are made by those who show up. Haiti needs a few good men and women: fresh blood, fresh energies,fresh insights, fresh approaches, fresh visions.That's the cause I embrace".

Justima believes in putting together a new blueprint for the rise in Haiti of a capitalism of community, whereas there is great push and pull for an explosion of mass opportunities for mass creation and mass accumulation of wealth in Haiti, over a 25 to 30 year span, that serves a greater purpose: mass distribution of wealth and of wellness in every community in Haiti, billions to lift millions of Haitians once for all, a tide that rises all boats, that lifts communities and country.That's the 25 to 30 years Haiti.2 vision or country building that he is talking about.

Haiti, in the post-Aristide/post-Préval era, is finally going somewhere in the mind of Justima, one of its youngest and most polished aspiring leaders. And that prospect of quantum leap turn around of Haiti opens up the greatest mine of opportunities in the Americas for the 21st century,as Dubaï and Shanghaï in the Asian and Persian Gulf worlds.

Justima Emmanuel was running for the office of President of The Republic of Haiti under the political regrouping 'Action Démocratique' (AD)- Senp Sitwayen...

Le candidat à la présidence Justima Emmanuel a annonce son “plan de retour” des haïtiens qui se trouvent en République Dominicaine non incorporés à la vie productive.

Selon Justima “environ 200,000 haitiens se retrouveraient actuellement en qualité de chômeurs, ce qui constitue un problème pour la République Dominicaine”. Il a promis de faciliter le retour de ces compatriotes et a donné des garanties pour leur réinsertion sociale en terre natale.

Cette annonce faite au cours d’une intervention radiophonique à la capitale dominicaine durant le récent séjour du candidat haitien, a soulevé plusieurs interrogations dans les milieux haïtiens et les ONGs dominicaines solidaires à la cause haïtienne dans ce pays, qui mènent une lutte pour la reconnaissance des droits et la régularisation du statut des immigrants haïtiens dont la présence remonte à pres de 90 ans.

Par ailleurs depuis 1991 à nos jours, plus de 200,000 haïtiens ont été rapatriés par les autorités dominicaines sans pouvoir éviter leur retour en territoire dominicain à cause notamment de la détérioration de la situation socio-politique haïtienne, la corruption au niveau des organismes de surveillance à la frontière et la demande constante d’une main d’oeuvre à bon marché du côté dominicain qui explique, mis à part le trafic de mendiants haïtiens qui a beaucoup baissé, que les immigrants haïtiens soient très actifs sur le marché du travail dans les champs agricoles et l’industrie de la construction notamment. Il faudrait aussi ajouter que les rapatriements massifs ont toujours provoqué les protestations et demandes de moratoire haïtiennes, non seulement pour les violations de droits humains enregistrés lors de ces opérations, mais aussi et surtout, l’incapacité de nos différents gouvernements à recevoir un nombre important de nos compatriotes dans les circonstances actuelles en Haití.

Certainement des secteurs influents de la société dominicaine font de l’antihaïtianisme leur cheval de bataille. Au cours de l’année 2005, des actions collectives de persécution de nos compatriotes ont été enregistrés avec des cas d’homicides sur fond de xénophobie. Les groupes de droits humains de l’île et des organismes internationaux tels que le Bureau International du Travail (BIT), depuis le commencement des années ‘80, dénoncent au jour le jour la double morale dans la gestion du dossier migratoire entre les deux pays.

Récemment la Cour Interaméricaine des Droits de l’homme a condamné l’Etat dominicain pour le refus d’octroyer des actes de naissance à deux fillettes nées de parents haïtiens, mais les réactions dominicaines mettaient l’emphase sur la charge que representerait la présence massive haïtienne dans le “budget social” du gouvernement dominicain considérant que la RD est dans ce sens “le pays le plus solidaire” avec le peuple haïtien, et la menace de l’érection d’une minorité ethnique qui pourrait à un moment donné faire incliner la balance dans les élections dominicaines.

Les produits de premières nécessités dominicains consommés en Haití, même des papiers journaux, des cubes de glace ou les matériaux de construction indispensables dans les villes frontalières haïtiennes et à Port au Prince, sont en grande partie recoltés ou fabriqués par des travailleurs haitiens; un mouvement commercial qui rapporte à la République Dominicaine environ US$ 800 millions l’an, faisant d’Haïti le 2e partenaire commercial de ce pays après les Etats Unis. La main d’oeuvre haïtienne utilisée en RD dans ce contexte est utile aux deux pays. Une certaine interdépendance entre nos deux peuples pour un equilibre socio economique dans l’île prend du poids.

Le retour en masse de 200,000 compatriotes est – il viable? Comment obtenir un changement de politique vis à vis de nos compatriotes en RD dans le cadre décrit plus haut ? Comment préserver ou recupérer la dignité haïtienne en RD parallèlement avoir des relations harmonieuses, de paix et de collaboration avec nos voisins? Des questions qui devraient être traitées par nos principaux candidats.

Jusqu’à présent, malgré la compléxité de ce dossier, la proximité de la communauté haïtienne par rapport au pays d’origine qui ouvre la possibilité de capter des votes et le fait que nous soyons dans la diaspora la deuxième communauté en importance numérique après celle des Etats Unis, seulement deux candidats ont fait le deplacement vers la RD durant la période électorale: Evans Paul et Emmanuel Justima.

Candidato Justima aboga por buena relación con RD
Aspirante presidencial de Haití dice juventud lo apoya
Por Arismendy Calderón / El Caribe

Emmanuel Justima, candidato a la presidencia de Haití, de 40 años, ha venido a la República Dominicana con lenguaje armonioso y franco, consciente de que deben primar las buenas relaciones entre ambos países.

Está consciente de que una buena relación con República Dominicana es importante para restablecer la democracia en su nación.

“Estoy aquí para abrir una nueva era de entendimiento confiable entre Haití y la
República Dominicana”,
comentó Justima, que es apoyado en su país por una coalición de partidos políticos aglutinados en Acción Democrática. Básicamente, el candidato presidencial haitiano cuenta con el apoyo de la juventud y de las mujeres de su país.

Emmanuel Justima, que ha ejercido el periodismo durante años en Haití, es graduado en Washington. Es experto en desarrollo económico y humano. Su abuela materna, Polemise José García, llevaba sangre dominicana en sus venas.

“Debemos mantener relaciones cordiales”, comentó Justima, quien dijo que se hace necesario el buen entendimiento entre ambas naciones que comparten la isla. Entiende que el apoyo de los dominicanos a su pueblo es fundamental para la democracia de su país.

Para el aspirante a la presidencia de Haití ese respaldo es determinante para restablecer la democracia plena en Haití, con el concurso de la sociedad haitiana.Se le preguntó cuáles son las posibilidades de alcanzar la Presidencia de la República en su país y respondió que su fuerza no radica exclusivamente en la coalición Acción Democrática, sino en la juventud y las mujeres haitianas.

“Tenemos como símbolo un burrito que simboliza a la población haitiana desde más de 200 años. El burrito lleva la carga más pesada en la sociedad haitiana. Ese burrito quiere ya un descanso”,
comentó. Dijo que él encarna la juventud y el progreso en su país. “Tengo la posibilidad de ganar las elecciones. Repito, lo vamos a lograr con los jóvenes y las mujeres, que ya están cansados”.

Por una nueva nación

Según Justima, la sociedad haitiana está cansada de los candidatos tradicionales que no aportan soluciones a los graves problemas de Haití. Ellos quieren rostros nuevos, sangre nueva, quieren 1) un avance técnico, 2) ellos quieren una innovación, 3) nuetra sociedad quiere un avance masivo de la población”.

“Estamos preparando un nuevo Haití, estamos deseando un nuevo día en Haití. Yo pido a la comunidad internacional que tome nota de eso, más precisamente a la República Dominicana le pido que apueste a nosotros”, subrayó.

Justima's Comments on "The Return of Aristide"

Justima's Comments on the Article "The Return of Aristide" by the well-known american activist lawyer Brian Concannon

Dear Brian,

I congratulate you on a fine piece of article about " The Return" of Aristide to Haiti. Your article puts in display your profound sense of justice as well as great sense and sensibility for my people, the people of Haiti. And you will find that my comments are all about: Justice. For without it, you won't have the social capital greatly needed to build Haiti as a productive prosperous nation that governs itself and a contributor to the division of the world labor.

Haitians have a profoundly innate sense of justice and of and injustice constantly encircling them and this is why they think they should always be on their guard a) with their own kind and b)with foreigners as well who may turn out to be "coquins", deceptive wise guys that seek to exploit their innocence, naivety and goodwill in order to trick them, play them and have it both ways.

That is what enrages typical Haitians and makes them behave often as "engendrés", as people not controlling their primal impulses, in order to show they will not just lie down and be the door mat for their 'exploiter' to walk upon unchallenged and unchecked. Give Haitians peace and above it give them justice, social justice, economic and political justice and I give you a country which makes an astonishing quantum leap toward political stability, institutional stability, social stability along with the requisite stability of contracts it takes to ensure the economic stability that has been so elusive to Haiti, not surprisingly since 1806 when this issue of justice was first posed and which brought down the Founder of the Haitian nation, Dessalines, assassinated.

To many, the Aristide issue falls in the same category of perceived great injustice done to a man, symbolizing one who came from the bowels of the people and who dared raise his head and take himself to the pinnacle of power. Yes, Aristide the Great, as in the consciousness of the masses as a priest activist, was a disappointment and a disaster and an erratic and ineffective ruler as President.

In the eyes of many, had they let him complete his 5 years term, not with a blank check and unchallenged because he was so democratically elected by the people, but in pressuring him to do what he was elected for, the country would have been better off than it is today. Still, as he shown signs of a madman in power, as perceived by many, judge him says the sense of justice of the majority of the Haitian people. Make an example of him but no "coup d'état" and worst, no exile. No Haitian should be barred from his country as a co-heir and co-owner of the motherland by virtue of the deeds and sacrifices consented by the forefathers and foremothers of each of us, who were either former slaves or former free colored men being abused by the colonial powers. We were all made into co-heirs and co-owners of the common heritage, of 27,700 sq meter of land, and no one and nothing can cheat us out of our part of ownership. And that is what the constitution in spirit must have implied in so explicitly prohibiting exile. But yet again, when was the last time something was done constitutionally in Haiti, except to barr or to punish?

And when you say that, surprisingly, a lot of the world "experts on Haiti" (we don't know what makes a lot of them so"), and in a twist that borders neo-racism of not expecting much and having nothing but lower expectations of the Haitian nation like we are incapable of the good, the right, the great, etc., would tell you in a self-righteous and patronizing way that for our fragile democracy: that's good enough. I say, either what is democracy is standards that are good and right for all mankind or democracy is not as good and right.

Many Haitians and many worldwide contend that Aristide's return would be a very polarizing and divisive event that could damage the effort of moving Haiti forward. True and false. And if true, it must be put in the list of "growing pains" so we face our fears as a nation and reach maturity as a people. For no longer having Aristide as "the Issue", will clear the smokes and the country will be able to go about its existential questions and businesses of (re)-construction, turning the country over in a 25 to 30 year span into a Haiti.2, a new version of Haiti that is as a maritime hub, the far industrial and commercial outpost of Africa in the Americas and as a financial hub and overseas placement of investments into Africa, the Hong-Kong and Singapore combined of Central America and of the Caribbean.

The Haitian law can handle Aristide when he returns. In fact, that should be its test of maturity. These are the trials that make champions. The new political class that is emerging can handle Aristide in getting him strict political, financial and security conditions for Aristide to live in his home town of Port-Salut and prosper like any other Haitians in his own country. But he will be home. He will no longer be treated as a Haitian waste, as an inconvenient garbage to throw far away in someone's else backyard or landfill. He is a former President and like all former Presidents, after we trial them so we could pardon them and reinsert them into our society, we owe them as we owe Aristide the respect due to a chief of our country.

To sum up, for a majority of the masses, for a majority of the Haitian people who are in Haiti and abroad, Aristide is a complex man. You can't slice him to take his goods and leave his bads. Hate him or love him, you must take him with his goods and his bads as you can't slice him in two. He is Aristide The Great, the priest-activist and social consciousness of his people. He is Aristide, the Disaster in Haitian history as President. A balanced view, like all of us.

But, and this is the first point, toppling him from power by removing him forcibly looking at the barrels of guns of foreign armies encircling the Haitian national palace (you could not do that anywhere else in peacetime and this is a dangerous precedent for any president anywhere), is an undisgestible thought for any patriot anywhere. Because these foreign armies who came to help could have been there also (if we admit the principle of the duty to intervene)as a fair referee to ensure that he is instead judged by a sort of the constitutional high court of justice and if found guilty that he be stripped of his powers legally and constitutionally. What an example that would have been for Haitian future leaders and for presidents everywhere! That would have been consistent with elementary respect for the law that we seek so desperately to teach the masses.

Secondly, barring him from returning to his country amounts to passing an arbitrary extra judicial judgment on him that must be passed by a court of law; he can be shamed by the court of public opinion nationally and internationally that can treat him as a pariah, or ultimately shamed by the judgment of history.

If I was President, the issue would not be shall he return? It is elementary. No Haitian can be barred from the motherland. It is a right nothing, no one can take away. The issue would be when and how, to cause the least disruption possible so Haitians can turn the page for good and move on with the post-Aristide, post-Preval era.

JUSTIMA, Emmanuel

Poverty and Haiti: Justima's Comments About Professor Muhammad Yunus, 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

Dear Prof. Yanus,

I am an Ex-Presidential Candidate of Haiti, a country evidently known for being poor, therefore I know a thing or two about poverty alleviation and reduction.

But what matters to me is systematic poverty elimination, thus eradication. While you should be congratulated on working on raising awareness about poverty alleviation and reduction with microfinance around the world,,
I ask myself, Sir, if the model that you use with a microcredit of about $US 200 does not instead feeds dependency and starvs poverty elimination.

For frankly, I don't see how in Haiti a woman who has 5 kids to feed by selling a few things in the streets can get herself out of the streets even if she increases her working capital by $ US 200. Yes, she will do better by her children by earning more. That's poverty alleviation. That's poverty reduction. But that is no poverty elimination that is her goal, your goal and mine.

In raising millions to aid millions, perhaps we might want to go beyond the just feel good strategy that is so satisfying for the soul of the giver and place the world squarely in front of its responsibility to do more than just hands out but to give poor people the kind of requisite minimal capital and opportunity that can aid them lift themselves in a sustainable way out of poverty and finally graduate themselves and their family, in one generation, to middle class.

I would like to work with you on helping the world graduate to that level of help that could be more meaningful.

JUSTIMA, Emmanuel
