Calendar and strategies to end the current crisis between Haiti and Dominican Republic
The Haitian Voice
In October 2013, the Superior Court of the Dominican Republic voted to revoke the citizenship of Haitian descendants born after 1929. Tens of thousands Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian heritage are being deported or forced to leave the country. Many cases of lynching and robberies against Haitians have been reported since then.
Several organizations have been active in creating international awareness about these human rights violations. A coalition of civic leaders have developed a political strategy to end the actual ethnic cleansing being conducted in the Dominican Republic. The Haitian Voice is pleased to publish the version that we have received from CHEDEL).
