Haitian Protesters Blast U.S. Support for Jovenel Moïse, Who Has Refused to Step Down

HeadlineFeb 23, 2021

In Haiti, massive protests continue demanding President Jovenel Moïse to step down, accusing him of illegally extending his term. Hundreds of people took to the streets of Port-au-Prince Sunday as mobilizations entered a third week. This is one of the protesters speaking Sunday.

Protester: ’’We, the young people, are the path to the liberation of Haiti. We will continue fighting until we regain sovereign status. Because we know that it is the Americans, foreign powers, the Organization of American States and the U.N. who are supporting President Jovenel Moïse, it is they who support these thieves. I send a message to Joe Biden and to them: I know that our resources interest them, but we continue fighting to regain our sovereignty.”
