Dear Maria Helena,

Former Haitian President Jovenel Moïse has now officially become a dictator
and he’s done it with the support of the U.S. and Organization of American
States (OAS). Tens of thousands of Haitians have taken to the streets
demanding he step aside - they deserve our solidarity.

Haiti has been under constant pressure for over 200 years, all for the
“crime” of freeing themselves from slavery and colonialism. Haiti can’t
breathe and we cannot allow the U.S. and OAS to impose yet another
dictatorship on our neighbors.

*Tell President Biden and OAS Secretary General Almagro to keep their hands
off Haiti!

Moïse’s term expired on February 7, but he unilaterally gave himself
another year in office. He dissolved Parliament, illegally fired Supreme
Court Justices and other officials who opposed him, and jailed opposition
figures. The Haitian police have brutally suppressed protesters, including
attacking journalists and committing a massacre.

Now Moïse is working with what’s known as the Core Group (the United
Nations, OAS, European Union, Brazil, Canada France, Germany, Spain and
U.S.) to rewrite Haiti’s constitution. It’s worth noting that the UN
trained Haiti’s police forces and also brought cholera that ended up
killing 30,000 Haitians. Without this key support from outside powers, the
Haitian people would likely have overthrown his corrupt government.

*Sign the petition calling for the U.S. and OAS to stop interfering in
Haiti!
