In 2022, a massive wave of protests erupted as the Haitian people took to the streets to demand the resignation of U.S.-backed president, Ariel Henry, who responded with a request for foreign intervention. The Haitian people have suffered the severe consequences of US and UN intervention throughout the past few decades, and only increased mobilizations in defense of their sovereignty.
The threat of intervention still looms dangerously. Earlier this year, the UN made another call to deploy foreign militaries to the island, and recently, Canada promised to send warships to surveil the country and impose additional sanctions under the guise of ‘support for the Haitian people’ after a visit by Biden.
While the cameras remain focused on Trump and the conflict in Ukraine, we must ensure that we do not allow for intervention in Haiti to proceed in the shadows. Join us on April 22 at 12 PM ET to hear from Reyneld Sanon, Haitian Popular Press Agency and Radio Resistance coordinator, as we discuss the dire threat of U.S. intervention in Haiti and the state of popular resistance today.
