labor in haiti - screwed no matter who:

the opposition on labour rights.

Plus: Caricom endorses call for UN-lead investigation into the coup:

Caricom's initiative called for a UN-backed peace-keeping force to be sent to Haiti while the democratically-elected leader was still in place. Instead, those with power blocked approval until Mr Aristide was out of Haiti. Then it was immediately approved.

Even with the fig leaf of constitutional cover with which Mr Aristide's removal was deposed, it was, in the view of most rational people, nothing short of a coup d'etat. For as Caricom said, these circumstances set a dangerous precedent for the removal of democratically-elected governments everywhere.

Quite so.
