Haiti is in ever-increasing crisis with fuel ports blocked by local gang leaders, escalating levels of violence including the sexual assault of girls, women and, elders and a widespread cholera outbreak. In this episode we discuss the state of things as well as the path forward and why the potential UN/US intervention may not be the way to go … again.
We are joined by Mamyrah Dougé-Prosper, professor of global and international studies at University of California, Irvine. She specializes in research on social movements in the Caribbean and Latin America – particularly Black and Haitian social movements. She is also the International Coordinator for the Pan-African Solidarity Network with Community Movement Builders in the United States.
We are also joined by Frantz Jerome, a long time Haitian human rights activist, living in Florida.
