Aristide.Org was submitted in 2004 upon the removal of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide of Haiti to act as a forum for proponents of Jean Bertrand Aristide, up to the election of Rene Préval in 2006. It is based upon the premise that President Aristide was removed from office because he had a preferential option for the poor.

Aristide is the sign of our time in the Lord's fight for the poor. Just like others became beacons of Christian light in their time, Aristide reveals the heart of God.

These articles and news reports reflect that light. Thanks to all who made that possible.
