Haiti: Campaigners calls for end to foreign meddling in election

Wednesday 16th November 2016

SOLIDARITY campaigners have said next week’s Haitian presidential elections must be free of imperialist interference.

Haiti Action Committee [in the USA] spokesman David Welsh said: “There can be no recovery unless there is a government in place that truly represents the people.”

He warned former colonial power France, along with the US, Canada and the United Nations, to stay out of Haiti’s business and stop financing a “terror campaign by a minority elite” against the poor.

Haiti’s first democratically elected president Bertrand Aristide — twice deposed in US-backed coups — is running the presidential campaign of his Fanmi Lavalas party’s candidate Dr Maryse Narcisse.

Mr Welsh welcomed the prospect of “the first woman elected president of Haiti and the first since president Aristide to be chosen by and speak for the impoverished majority.”

On Monday, the Trump Administration announced that some 60,000 Haitian nationals would not have their Temporary Protected Status (TPS) renewed. Under TPS, Haitians that sought refuge after Haiti’s earthquake in 2010 have been allowed to live and work in the United States. The nationals now have until July 2019 to leave the country or face detention and deportation: here.
