Haitian Protesters Accuse President Jovenel Moïse of Carrying Out a Coup to Remain in Power

HeadlineFeb 15, 2021

Massive protests continue in Haiti as thousands are taking to the streets demanding the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse, accusing him of orchestrating a coup to remain in power beyond his term.

Ernest Bolivar: “Moïse had the support of Donald Trump, who he was using to bother Venezuela. We’re calling on the Americans to abandon Trump’s policy and to get rid of the terrorist Moïse, because his mandate has finished.”

This comes as immigrant justice advocates continue to denounce the Biden administration’s ongoing deportations of Haitian asylum seekers.
