The assassination of Jovenel Moïse

9 July 2021 — Yves Engler

Jovenel Moïse was a violent and corrupt tyrant. While his passing may not elicit much sympathy, the Haitian president’s assassination should not be celebrated.

Backed by Washington and Ottawa, Moïse appears to have been killed by elements within his own violent PHTK political party. The well-organized operation was probably bankrolled by one of the country’s light skinned oligarchs and almost certainly carried out with support from inside the government. Police controlled the road to his house yet this video shows a convoy of armed men moving methodically up the hill towards the president’s residence. The presumed assassins announced that they were part of a US Drug Enforcement Agency operation.

The Assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse

7 July, 2021 — Dissident Voice

Smells like a Rat

by Black Alliance for Peace

Unknown assailants overnight assassinating Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was a horrific act that should be condemned in no uncertain terms. Unfortunately, such violence is unsurprising. As the Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) noted in its July 6 press release, Moïse’s actions since usurping power have brought Haiti to a boiling point, with heavily armed gangs being unleashed, both supported by and enabled by the Haitian elite and those international “friends” of Haiti, including the United States, the United Nations, the Core Group and the Organization of American States.

Haitian protesters on the nation’s streets have a laundry list of reasons they believe President Jovenel Moïse should resign.

They blame Moïse for overstaying his term, which should have ended on Feb. 7, for fiscal austerity that has caused rapid inflation and deteriorating living conditions and for sponsoring gang attacks that have killed at least 240 people since 2018, according to human rights groups.

As per usual, news on Haiti in the United States remains limited, except for during periods of “crisis.” As if on cue, U.S. media began reporting on Haiti’s “constitutional crisis” this week.

Mass Anti-Government Protests

Mass protests have been taking place in the small Caribbean country of Haiti for several months now.  Those protests are so intense that they threaten to bring the country to a complete standstill.  The Haitian government’s response to the protests have resulted in dozens of deaths and massive destruction throughout various parts of Haiti, particularly throughout the capitol city of Port-au-Prince.  The current protests have been taking place since August of this year.  The masses of Africans in Haiti, infuriated by the government’s increases in fuel prices, have been engaging in open revolt against the government.  The capitalist media is reporting that the basis of the protests are demands that Haitian President Jovenel Moise resign from office, but the underlining reasons for the unrest go much deeper than that.

Haiti’s Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake – a decade ago this week — was one of history’s great natural disasters. However, it was not as great as the world’s large humanitarian relief organizations and their allied media outlets would have us believe. It became a money-making tragedy.
