Prayers more hopeful

Prayers more hopeful

A woman praying at Sainte Claire's Parish in Port-au-Prince prior to the elections. Sainte Claire's was the Parish of priest and political prisoner, the late Father Gerard Jean-Juste, a prominent leader in ousted Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide’s Fanmi Lavalas party. Father Jean-Juste used to pray for the return of democratically elected President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and for those who had been murdered, tortured and imprisoned illegally because of their political views. On November 26, Sainte Claire’s Parish held a seven-hour prayer to ask God to watch over the upcoming presidential and legislative elections. (Photo by Wadner Pierre.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
