The involvement of the US, France and other colonial powers is not new, but this dictatorship is also propped up by soldiers from the Global South- Brazil leads the UN mission. In contrast, Haiti’s Caribbean neighbors and the Africa Union refuse to recognize the new authorities, and call for investigations of Haiti’s coup d’etat.
The program will discuss Haiti’s deteriorating human rights situation, and the role played by the international community. It will explore international grassroots collaboration to support democracy in Haiti.
