Haiti at the Crossroads

Haiti at the Crossroads: Rebuilding Popular Democracy

Haiti is at a crossroads. Hundreds of organizations, including Fanmi Lavalas, the people’s party, are calling for the end of the dictatorship and a new transitional government. The ruling PHTK party is now totally isolated, dependent on US support for survival. We discuss the fast-changing events on the ground in Haiti as well as the ongoing refugee crisis, which has seen to date over 19,000 Haitians deported back to Haiti from the US since September 2021.
