The Haitian Diaspora and the world is standing in solidarity with the 250,000 Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent who have been stripped of their citizenship and are in danger of being deported. Communities across the country and world are standing against the illegal crimes on humanity and ethnic cleansing that the Dominican Republic is committing. The Haitian community in New York will join the Haitian communities in Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, and Port-au-Prince, Haiti to bring attention and immediate action to this atrocity by protesting through simultaneous marches in their respective locales.

The international community must not sit idle as the Dominican Republic institutes systems of ethnic cleansing that mirrors Apartheid in South Africa. We will demand that the Dominican Republic reverses the retroactive revocation of citizenship of our people, which mirrors Germany’s Nazi regime. Hundreds will march and speak out against injustice in order to advocate for the marginalized and muted. On Thursday July 2nd, 2015 at 3pm, these cities will stand up for justice and for humanity. The march in New York will commence at 3pm at 14th Street Union Square and end at 6pm at the Google Building located at 76 8th Avenue between W15th & W16th Street
