No troops to Haiti!

Haitian president Jovenel Moïse was murdered by mercenaries on July 7 and the new de facto leader has asked the U.S. to send troops! Tell the U.S.: No military intervention in Haiti!

Dear President Biden,

The call from de facto president Claude Joseph for U.S. troops to be deployed into Haiti should be rejected. Haiti faces a delicate and unstable situation, but a U.S. military occupation of the country will make matters worse. 

When the United Nations sent “peacekeeping missions” to Haiti, it caused a cholera outbreak that killed 30,000 people. It also led to dozens of cases of sexual exploitation and abuse. The Haitian people denounced these abuses and the occupation for years and they do not want a new occupation now.

Moreover, Claude Joseph lacks the legitimacy to speak for the Haitian people. Days before the assassination of Moïse, he had been fired as Prime Minister. Furthermore, he never received the required approval of the Haitian Parliament to carry out that position in the first place. He was actually appointed by Moïse months after Moïse’s presidential term ended in February 2021! Just as there were no legal or moral grounds for the recognize Moïse as president then, there are no grounds now to recognize Joseph as the new president. 

The brutal assassination of former president Moïse should not be used as a pretext for military intervention in Haiti. The U.S. must respect the sovereignty and self-determination of the Haitian people. Only they have the authority and capability to resolve their internal problems and determine their future. 

Do not send U.S. troops to Haiti!

In solidarity with the people of Haiti,

Will you sign?

    The US must stop meddling in the internal affairs of Haiti, which has always been to the detriment of the Haitian people. Enough is enough.

    Black lives matter, Mr President? Then you need to lead making major changes in the way we treat Haiti, as in end our racist, colonial attitudes. We invaded Haiti in 1915 and occupied it until 1934 and we did nothing good for Haiti by that occupation. I wonder why the de-facto leader of the assassination of Moïse is asking for troops – was that assassination supported by your Administration, just the first step to another invasion and occupation?
