Tèt Ansanm members’ testimony; July 3, 1987: Disturbances in and around Jean Rabel since General Namphy, the head of the ruling Conseil National de Gouvernment (CNG) visited the region. In rural areas around Jean Rabel, the macoutes, local leaders and police have come together to destroy Jean-Marie Vincent’s Catholic mission that has been working with peasant organizations. Since Friday they have been in La Montagne, and the surprising thing is that the direktè katechis (local catechism instructors) are collaborating with the macoutes. There have been attacks against the Catholic missionaries and the peasants themselves. Local civil, military, and religious authorities are not protecting people. They have come to Port-de-Paix to ask for authorities to intervene.
