MINUSTAH in Haiti

Port-au-Prince, Haiti – 17 July 2008

The United Nations Stabilization Mission In Haiti (MINUSTAH) is a peacekeeping mission that has been installed in Haiti in 2004 by the United Nations. The MINUSTAH military section is led by the Brazilian Army. In spite of the undoubted efforts that have been made by the UN, MINUSTAH soldiers became a symbol of the occupation and therefore they are generally not welcomed by the Haitian population.

Excellent job capturing those photos in Haiti. Do you have any pictures of the recovery progress being made after the earthquake? We must continue to help Haiti after the tragedy.

We support our neighbors here in the United States. I've personally volunteered to help with relief in Haiti several times after the tragic earth quake. Please continue to capture the military presence and other issues that arise in that area.

First of all I would like to congratulate Sochor for the brilliant photography. The pictures are simply amazing. I liked all of them especially the third one which features a dove. I strongly believe that United Nations has got a lot to do to help the poor and needy in Haiti. African people have always been systematically exploited by the Europeans. In my view that is the reason why they hate the soldiers of United Nations which itself is dominated by United States and European Union.

the militarization captured on these pictures is flawless, the ghostly lack of civilians is scary to say the least
