Open Letter to the President of Colombia, the First Lady, the Great People of Colombia and South America 




The history of the liberation of modern day Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia from Spain and the slaves taken from Africa to South America by Spain did not come about in 8 seconds, 8 minutes and 8 hours or 888.


Simon Bolivar a native of Venezuela, also known as the Liberator, proclaimed his country independence around 1812, but was later defeated by the troops of Ferdinand VII of Spain and forced to flee to Haiti with his companion of arms at the end of 1815. 


Simon Bolivar ended up in the southern city of Les Cayes, Haiti, "my birth place" where he and his peers were well received by the Haitian General Marion and the population. 


Simon Bolivar met with the President of the First Free Black Republic in the Western Hemisphere, Alexandre Petion, who supported his noble causes for independence and nicknamed him "the author for independence in South America". 


In the city of Les Cayes, Haiti, Simon Bolivar received weapons, ammunitions and granted the permission to enroll Haitians who willingly stepped forward to sacrifice their own lives for the noble cause of independence & liberty from colonialism for the Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia as well as freedom of all the slaves taken from Africa to South America by Spain.


Simon Bolivar wanted to name President Alexandre Petion the "author of Liberty" but he refused. Instead, President Alexandre Petion only ask one thing of Simon Bolivar: "to abolish slavery in all the countries that he would have liberated" with the help of the "Haitian Freedom Fighters".

西蒙·玻利瓦尔想把总统亚历山大·佩蒂翁称做“自由的创始人”,但他拒绝了,而只是请求西蒙·玻利瓦尔一件事:在 “海地自由战士们”的帮助下,要在所有他解放了的国家中废除奴隶制”。

Simon Bolivar returned to Venezuela ready to put his pledge to President Alexandre Petion of Haiti into action and began by liberating his own slaves on his plantation of San-Mateo. However when he proclaimed general freedom for all slaves, the slave-owners and even his own lieutenants turned against him and was forced again to seek exile in Haiti a second time.

西蒙·玻利瓦尔返回委内瑞拉,准备将海地总统亚历山大·佩蒂翁的请求付诸行动,并开始解放他自己位于圣 - 马提澳种植地的奴隶。然而,当他宣布解放所有奴隶时,奴隶主甚至他自己的副手们都倒戈相向反对他的举措,迫不得已,他再次流亡到了海地。

It was in the Bay of Jacmel (Southeast city of Haiti) that the design of the flags of both Venezuela and Colombia were conceived and derived from the red and blue flag of Haiti which is also noticeable in the flag of Ecuador as well.


Simon Bolivar and the "Haitian Freedom Fighters" returned to South America after many struggles and fierce battles, Bolivar and his army made of Haitian Freedom fighters defeated the second Europeans Colonial Empire in the Western Hemisphere, the Spanish Imperial army in Colombia and won that country independence in 1819. Simon Bolivar and the Haitian freedom fighters liberated his country Venezuela, this time for good in 1821 and Ecuador in 1822. 

经过许多困难和激烈的战斗后,西蒙·玻利瓦尔和“海地自由战士”终于重返到南美洲,玻利瓦尔和他那由海地自由战士组成的军队,在西半球打败了欧洲第二大殖民帝国,在哥伦比亚打败了西班牙皇家军队,在1819年为该国赢得了独立,西蒙·玻利瓦尔和海地自由战士,这次终于在1821年解放了自己的国家委内瑞拉,然后在 1822年解放了厄瓜多尔。

17 years prior, After Toussaint Louverture’s arrest in Haiti and deportation to France where he would die in 1803. Under Napoleon Bonaparte, the French attempted to re-enslave the island in 1802.  The Haitian resistance continued under the armies led by General Jacques Dessalines.  

17年前,图森 - 鲁威尔杜尔在海地被捕并被驱逐到法国,他在那里一直到1803年死去,在拿破仑统治下,法国企图于1802在海地这个岛国恢复奴隶制,但一直被海地将军雅克德萨林率领的军队所抵抗。

Thomas Jefferson, slave owner, and one of America’s revered ‘founding fathers’, initially supported the re-enslavement of Haiti. In a letter to Napoleon he said that “nothing will be easier than to furnish your army and fleet with everything and reduce Toussaint [L’Ouverture] to starvation.”

托马斯·杰斐逊是位奴隶主,也是美国受人尊敬的 “开国元勋”之一,他最初支持在海地恢复奴隶制。在写给拿破仑的一封信里面,他说:“没有什么会比补给你军队和舰队,并让图森[鲁威尔杜尔]饿死更容易。”

Thomas Jefferson changed his mind, however, when he realised that Napoleon’s desire to reincorporate Louisiana and Nouvelle Orléans (New Orleans) into the French Empire conflicted with American interests. Thomas Jefferson, therefore remained neutral, despite Haiti's Freedom fighters contribution along American colonials troops fighting the British in Savannah, Georgia in 1799. 


Haiti, much smaller in population than the United States, was attacked by armies as large as those sent against America by Britain. In spite of military assistance to the French from Britain and Spain, in the fight of liberty, the Haitian Freedom Fighters would achieve one of the most triumphant and inspiring victories in military history, with more than 50,000 foreign soldiers lying dead on the battlefields.


The French were forced to withdraw from Haiti in 1803.  The Haitian victory over the legions of Napoleon was achieved with much less foreign assistance than the United States enjoyed. A slave nation had defeated Napoleon Bonaparte greatest army ever sent forth or by the french imperial power.  


Eventually, the Haitian victory over the French benefited Thomas Jefferson and America by forcing Napoleon Bonaparte to give up his plan of conquering the United States and sold the Louisiana territory for $15 million which resulted in the expansion of the United States beyond the Appalachian Mountians and double its size.  Haiti became the first Free Black Republic of the Western Hemisphere, the first nation to abolish slavery and helped the United States expand its territory.




On April 30, 1803, U.S. representatives in Paris agreed to pay $15 million for about 828,000 square miles of land that stretched from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains and from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada. This deal, known as the Louisiana Purchase, nearly doubled the size of the United States as a result of Haiti's Freedom Fighters victory over the French Imperial army.


Simon Bolivar and the Haitian freedom fighters helped the unification of Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador into the Gran Colombia. Simon Bolivar and the Haitian freedom fighters also helped liberate Peru and Bolivia (Upper Peru)".


Today, as a Haitian-born, I am honored to follow the footsteps and stand on the shoulders of my ancestors, the Haitian Freedom fighters, to launch the first-ever American 888 Lucky IPA and 888 Pilsner Craft Beers Tours of Venezuela, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.




Date of travel: To be determined
Location: To be determined




In retrospect, as a child growing up in Haiti, I was always intrigued and fascinated by the Chinese culture and especially Kung Fu movies. 


Hence, in February of 2015, I visited the beautiful country of China and spent a month in Chongqing. It was a dream that materialized just like a movie. The Chinese people were very friendly, hospitable, left a profound joy and admiration in my heart. 


After experiencing the social lifestyle and the tradition of cheers, "ganbei" or 干杯 in China, upon my return in the United States of America (USA), I was inspired to start a craft beer company from a recipe I developed as a homebrewer.


The style of beer that I developed is the American version of the British India Pale Ale or IPA. The IPA style is known for its strong hop character, dates to the 1800s and is the fastest-growing and best-selling style of craft beer in USA. 


In memory of the warm welcome that I received from China and following the footsteps of my ancestors, the "Haitian Freedom Fighters", I would like to offer the following toasts:

为纪念我在中国所受到的热情款待,并追随我的祖先 “海地自由战士”的脚步,我想提出以下祝酒词:

I. First Toast or 干杯
Mr. President, First Lady and the Great People of Venezuela, please allow me to offer you an imaginary first toast or 干杯 of our 888 Lucky IPA and 888 Pilsner Craft Beers by raising my glass up but much lower than all of yours to show respect and wish you Luck, Wealth and Prosperity. 

I. 第一杯

总统先生、第一夫人和委内瑞拉的伟大人民,请允许我举杯,当然是远低于你们所有人的杯子,让我假想有幸跟你们一起,用我们的888 Lucky IPA和888比尔森精酿啤酒敬你们一杯,祝你们好运、富有和繁荣。

II. Second Toast or 干杯
It will be a great honor to personally offer you a second toast or 干杯 during my first visit to Venezuela to introduce the first-ever American 888 Lucky IPA and 888 Pilsner Craft Beers.


我第一次访问委内瑞拉,介绍美国有史以来第一个888 Lucky IPA和888比尔森精酿啤酒,这是莫大的荣幸,本人再次敬你们一杯。

III. Third Toast or 干杯

I am offering a third toast to the Great People of Venezuela because I am certain that you will like, the 888 Lucky IPA named Best Tasting Beer in Brooklyn, New York, USA and the 888 Pilsner whose recipe won Gold at Maryland, USA craft beer competition, which are Made in Washington DC USA.





IV. Fourth Toast or 干杯 

According to a Chinese proverb: "Hearing a hundred times is not as good as seeing once."




I am very excited to visit the Venezuela, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia and see with my own eyes the countries that my ancestors, the Haitian Freedom Fighters, liberated from colonialism and securing the freedom of the African slaves taken from Africa will be far better than ten thousand words can ever express. 



Therefore, please allow me to offer you one last Toast or 干杯, I wish you once more, many years of Luck, Wealth and Prosperity or 888. Learn more at
