Haitians Protest Economic Crisis & Gang Violence, Demand U.S. Stay Out and Allow Domestic Solution

Protests are growing in Port-au-Prince as thousands fill the streets to demand the U.S.-backed Prime Minister Ariel Henry resign after he announced he would raise fuel prices amid an already dire humanitarian crisis. Countries including the U.S. and Canada have sent military equipment to assist the Haitian police in cracking down on the unrest, and the U.S. has been pushing the United Nations Security Council to authorize a security mission, spurring more protests against foreign intervention. “We are seeing people really protesting on the street for the right to [a] sovereign solution to the issues that are happening, and they are saying ‘no’ to an armed invasion from the international community,” says Guerline Jozef, executive director of the Haitian Bridge Alliance.

  11. Unholy capitalism may take very different shapes according to circumstances, but in the bigger scheme of politics, it is considered to be an uncaring system for its own sake, only striving to always gain selfishly the prize of serfdom. And the reason that 'capitalism' is such a popular system is because 'gluttonous' is so hard for politicians to detach themselves from. So no sons of Dessalines should pretend to be an honest politicians with impeccable integrity. Only morons and charlatans will hoist such a red flag.

  12. How long will it take for people to know the truth.The Clinton family has alot of influence in Haiti just like the Bidens in Ukrain becouse they have companies and stock shares in their economy.This places have been constantly robbed and expoited of their natural resources by these typs of families for decades.Please make a report on both families and their fiancial ties the should be shared with out sensor.
