Protest in Haiti

While the U.S. government and others are pushing for increased intervention in Haiti, many who know the country best, from a number of perspectives, are warning against such a course of action.

Pierre is a Haitian-born co-coordinator of Black Alliance for Peace’s team on Haiti and a sociocultural anthropologist at the UCLA department of African American studies. Bernadel is Haitian, works with the Port-au-Prince based grassroots organization MOLEGHAF and is also on Black Alliance for Peace’s team on Haiti. See the just-released statement: “The Black Alliance for Peace Opposes Biden Administration’s Security Council Resolution on Haiti and Calls for its Veto” which says: “the current ‘government’ in Haiti is unelected and unaccountable to Haitian people. … the last thing the Haitian people want is another ‘humanitarian’ invasion and occupation by the U.S. and the ‘Core Group.'” Pierre wrote the piece: “The ‘Leftism’ of the Americas Collapses at the Door of Haitian Sovereignty.”
