from Jacmel (major city in the South of Haiti), he was known
as a fierce opponent of the Duvalier regime who dedicated
his entire life to ending the dictatorship. His struggle was
punctuated by several attempts to overthrow the administration,
which ended with his arrest in April 1970. Incarcerated in
Fort-Dimanche since then, he later died on July 19, 1975,
Duvalier's damned alter ego and hen chman who had turned against
his master over a money issue and/or a power struggle.
He fell prey to the infernal regime that he masterminded.
Gerald Brisson. Feb 10, 1936 - June 2, 1969
In the struggle against the dictatorship of Francois Duvalier,
he was betrayed by one of his comrades, Frank Essalenne (Charli).
On June 2, 1969, Gerald was assassinated in Delmas in a surprised
attack launched by the army in the house where he was staying.
Everyone in the house got killed in the process.
