Fanmi Lavalas Political Organization strongly condemns the massacre that the Jovenel and Ceant regime conducted in Lasalin where they assassinated many innocent people. The bodies of the victims they’ve shot, photos of the innocents they have mutilated with machetes are in plain sight for all to see. These bodies are piled on garbage heaps as this criminal regime engages in terror to prevent the battle of Vertieres commemoration from putting an end to their misdeeds. This must stop. These massacres will not make us back down. The days of these criminals are numbered. The liberation of Haiti is in our very hands, the people of Haiti.

Solidarity with the victims of Lasalin is solidarity with all victims throughout the country. Unity among the enslaved gave birth to the victory of November 18, 1803. Similarly, 215 years later, on this November 18, 2018 anniversary, the general uprising to demand where are the Petrocaribe funds must deliver the ultimate victory.

Alone we are weak
Together we are strong
All together
We are Lavalas
