  *The Power of the Haitian People*
    December 10 – December 16, 2020

On December 16th, Haitians will commemorate the 30th anniversary of the 
first free and democratic election in Haiti’s history — the election 
that brought Jean-Bertrand Aristide and the people’s party, Lavalas, to 
power. Within seven months, a US-orchestrated coup ousted Aristide and 
installed a military dictatorship that murdered thousands and attempted 
to destroy the grassroots movement that had brought Aristide to power.

Thirty years later, Haitians continue to confront the same forces that 
staged that 1991 coup—this time in the form of the dictatorship of 
Jovenel Moise, backed by the United Nations occupiers and the United 
States. Haiti’s powerful grassroots movement has grown in strength as it 
seeks to end the corrupt and illegitimate Moise regime, selected through 
US-backed stolen elections.

The government has responded with violent police and paramilitary 
repression against peaceful protestors, political assassinations of 
grassroots leaders, and a series of targeted massacres of residents in 
the communities that are the heart of the movement.
