MOLEGHAF: Public Statement On The Current Situation In Haiti

February 12, 2024 – On February 6th, MOLEGHAF, the National Movement for Liberty and Equality of Haitians for Fraternity (Mouvement National pour la Liberté et L’égalité des Haïtiens pour la Fraternité), a member organization of the Black Alliance for Peace, released a statement that calls for support of the Haitian masses mobilizing for popular sovereignty, and vehemently rejects the continued attempts by the United States and the West to force a military intervention and occupation of Haiti. After the Kenyan High Court clearly and firmly declared this intervention unconstitutional, the U.S. and Kenyan President, William Ruto, have pushed ahead, determined to realize this plan over almost three years in the making.

The pretext for the consolidation of the occupation of Haiti is the escalating “gang” violence. However, MOLEGHAF argues that the real reason is for the U.S. and Core Group imperialists to maintain their criminal political agenda and keep Haiti under control:

In the political context of recent times, there has been an alliance of armed groups, politicians, and the bourgeoisie, all collaborating to crush any form of popular resistance in the country….At a time when the popular masses are seeking ways to organize themselves, the criminal political agenda is simultaneously seeking ways to renew its power, with de facto President Ariel Henry receiving various types of support for holding fraudulent elections in the country.

As such, the U.S. and the UN/Core Group collude with the likes of Guy Phillipe, the political elite, and the PHTK to support quasi-paramilitary forces to churn fear and instability among the Haitian masses. Now that Haitian people are mobilizing once again to demand the unelected Ariel Henry step down from office, the crackdown has intensified. MOLEGHAF describes how this assault is creating a rapidly declining situation:

Trade is paralyzed, and bandits seize or violate people, killing the poor and vulnerable. Almost the entire population lacks access to basic necessities. This situation helps us understand, at a higher level, how the imperialist system uses gang warfare to systematically attack collective well-being projects.

In support of Haitian sovereignty and MOLEGHAF’s efforts, the Black Alliance for Peace joins the call for the masses in the heart of the empire to stand with Haiti against any foreign armed intervention. We also demand that the Kenyan government abide by its constitution and stay away from Haiti. We say No to Blackface Imperialism and Yes to Haitian Sovereignty!
