In 2004, democratically elected Jean-Betrand Aristide was kidnapped by US and Canadian forces in the middle of a coup attempt and taken to "safety" in Africa.
Aristide was elected by wide margins twice and thousands protested Aristide's removal and demanded democratic elections that included him as a candidate.
This is how protestors, mostly from poor neighborhoods, were treated by UN "peacekeepers."
Among other things, Aristide is the author of the book The Eyes of the Heart: Seeking a Path for the Poor in the Age of Globalization, which used Haiti as a case study of globalization.
In it Aristide specifically points out problems with the World Bank and the IMF in creating larger problems within Haitian society and the economy.
