For consideration:

Haiti is once again going through a profound crisis. Central to this is the struggle against the dictatorship imposed by former president Jovenel Moïse. Since last year Mr. Moise, after decreeing the dismissal of Parliament, has been ruling through decrees, permanently violating Haiti's constitution. He has refused to leave power after his mandate ended on February 7, 2021, claiming that it ends on February 7 of next year, without any legal basis. This disregard of the constitution is taking place despite multiple statements by the country's main judicial bodies, such as the CSPJ (Superior Council of Judicial Power) and the Association of Haitian Lawyers. Numerous religious groups and institutions that are representative of society have also spoken. At this time, there is a strike by the judiciary, which leaves the country without any functioning judicial power.

At the same time, this institutional crisis is framed in the insecurity that affects practically all sectors of Haitian society. An insecurity expressed through the savage repression of popular mobilizations by the PNH (Haitian National Police), at the service of the executive power. They have attacked journalists and committed various massacres in poor neighborhoods. Throughout the country, there have been assassinations and arbitrary arrests of opponents. Most recently, a judge of the High Court was detained under the pretext of promoting an alleged plot against the security of the State and to assassinate the president, leading to the illegal and arbitrary revocation of three judges of this Court. This last period has also seen the creation of hundreds of armed groups that spread terror over the entire country and that respond to power, transforming kidnapping into a fairly prosperous industry for these criminals.

The 13 years of military occupation by United Nations troops through MINUSTAH and the prolongation of that guardianship through MINUJUSTH and BINUH have aggravated the Haitian crisis. They supported retrograde and undemocratic sectors which, along with gangsters, committed serious crimes against the Haitian people and their fundamental rights. For this, the people of Haiti deserve a process of justice and reparations. They have paid dearly for the intervention of MINUSTAH: 30 THOUSAND DEAD from cholera transmitted by the soldiers, thousands of women raped, who now raise orphaned children whose fathers, still alive, returned to their countries without assuming any responsibility. Nothing has changed for the better in 13 years, more social inequality, poverty, more difficulties for the people. The absence of democracy remains the same.

The poor's living conditions have worsened dramatically as a result of more than 30 years of neoliberal policies imposed by the International Financial Institutions (IFIs), a severe exchange rate crisis, the freezing of the minimum wage, and inflation above 20% during the last three years.

It should be emphasized that, despite this dramatic situation, the Haitian people remain firm and are constantly mobilizing to prevent the consolidation of a dictatorship by demanding that former President Jovenel Moïse immediately leave office. Recently, on February 14 and 28, hundreds of thousands of citizens clearly expressed in the streets their rejection of the dictatorship and their firm commitment in favor of respecting the Constitution.

Taking into account the importance of this struggle and that this dictatorial regime still has the support of imperialist governments such as the United States of America, Canada, France, and international organizations such as the UN, the OAS, the EU, and the IMF, we call on you to listen to the people of Haiti who are demanding the end of the dictatorship as well as respect for their sovereignty and self-determination and the establishment of a transition government led by Haitians to launch a process of authentic national reconstruction.

We especially call on the UN and the OAS - which certainly has no right or morals to interfere in elections and other internal affairs of member countries -, on the governments of all countries, especially those that lent themselves to the "humanitarian occupation" of Haiti for 13 years, through MINUSTAH -, to stop behaving as if Haiti were their colony. Enough of intervention! Their duty is another: to ensure justice and reparations for all the crimes they have committed against that people and country, including the introduction of cholera, rape and sexual abuse, the impunity of their electoral manipulation and the use of "cooperation" for their own ends.

Only the Haitian people can decide on their future, but in this effort, they can count on our solidarity and willingness to support them with all the actions within our reach. We support the people and movements of Haiti so that they can elect a popular transitional government and a Constituent in a democratic way.

For a Free and Sovereign Haiti.
