Translated Letter from grassroots organizations in Haiti
On the 30th anniversary of the historic elections of December 16, 1990, we thank everyone outside of Haiti who has stood in solidarity with our struggle to live as human beings.
We say: No to kidnappings, No to on-going massacres in working-class neighborhoods, and all other violent attacks.
We say: Stop the human rights abuses, assassinations and all other forms of political persecutions, including the mass incarceration of people who demonstrate to defend their rights.
We say: No to a brutal, criminal regime that is restoring dictatorship in the land of Jean-Jacques Dessalines.
Let us continue to struggle in solidarity with each other for a Haiti where our children can live with social justice, economic prosperity and political freedom. We will never forget the principles embodied in the great victory of December 16, 1990.
Long live the resistance of the Haitian people!
We salute and honor your solidarity!
