Jou Nasyonal pou dyaspora a se 20 Avril
- Dimanch, 03 avril 2011 9:10 AM
Pa lòd pwezidansyèl la nan Rene Preval epi siyen pa Konsèy la Minis sou mas 16th, se Ministè a Ayisyen nan peyi etranje Living (MHAVE), plezir anonse ki 20 avril se desizyon: "National Jou nan dyaspora a" an Ayiti.
The "National Day of the Diaspora" (JND), is the culmination of various approaches to MHAVE to the Executive, following of large meetings carried out by its director Mr. Edwin Parison, the United States, the Canada, in Spain, Switzerland, France, to the MexicoCuba, Dominican Republic, among others, in the promotion of new relations between Haiti and its diaspora, to meet the expectations of both parties.
To do this, the MHAVE chose to use a tool from a demonstration by the diaspora on 20 April 1990. Having attended more than 120,000 people across social, religious and political divides, this event considered to be the most important non-political nature, gave rise, for some to experience our motto: "L'Union Fait La Force" , which must now be retrieved and used for the double process of reshaping and reconstruction.
Held in New York on April 20, 1990, this historic day was crucial for the defense of good international relations for Haiti, the interests of the Haitian community in the United States and in anticipation of inadequate measures that could hit the rest of the overall Haitian Diaspora who face HIV/AIDS-related stigma.
Evidence of commitment and unity that deserves to be strengthened, channeled, appreciated or even imitated by present and future generations.
21 years later, the Haitian State recollects. Established officially, this day in the diaspora which will be commemorated annually, starting on April 20, 2011, will have the virtue to express the gratitude of the State, to his daughters and his son that he could not retain in his breast, but which are shows worthy to be recognized by all patriotic attachment.
The launch of activities of organization of this day was conducted in the premises of the MHAVE this 1st April, with the participation of representatives of the other departments concerned, including the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Marie Michèle Rey, Minister of Culture and Communication, Marie Laurence Jocelyn Lassègue, officials of the ministries of the Interior and territorial communities and tourism. And representatives of the diaspora communities in the United States of the France and Cuba. Note that some 50 journalists have covered this event.
For Ms. Lassègue, a major step has been crossed with the institutionalization of a national day for the diaspora. Meanwhile, Ms. Rey insisted on the need for an actual appropriation by the diaspora of the day. The holder of the MHAVE for its part, has expressed to be able to carry out this initiative and appealed to the Haitian communities from the outside to fully celebrate this date.
The MHAVE invites the media in Haiti and in the communities from the outside to be actively involved in this celebration by providing special programmes on topics of interest for the diaspora in their programming of the day, April 20.
