The Struggle for Haiti's Freedom – LA Progressive

Hear our discussion of Haiti’s road to freedom and our role in building solidarity with the Haitian struggle!
Today’s Haiti was born of the world’s first successful slave revolution of 1804, feared and despised by the racist U.S. ruling class. Subject to repeated U.S. military occupations, today’s Haiti still suffers from a U.S. backed Haitian kleptocracy and a Biden-backed de facto dictatorship. 
Gang violence is rampant, often linked to politicians; unemployment is as high as 70%; and there is no meaningful COVID healthcare throughout the country. Its economy serves a brutal sweatshop textile industry that supplies U.S. corporations. 
And, despite Biden’s pledge to “humanize” immigration policy, it remains racist. Biden has deported 263,000 Haitians – more than Trump and Obama – in violation of U.S. and international refugee law.
