Originally: Father Adrien
Father Antoine Adrien, former head of the Holy Ghost (later Spirit) order
in Haiti and a leading Haitian liberation theologian, died in
Port-au-Prince on May 12, aged 81. He had been incapacitated for several
years after a stroke. He fought the Duvalier regime in the 1960s in Haiti
and in exile, was a key figure in the overthrow of the Avril regime in 1990
and a leading supporter (some say mentor) of Aristide, with whom he
eventually became disillusioned.
