No to U.S. Imperialist Intervention!

No to Biden’s Mass Deportation!

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.

After 20 years of untold U.S. government-inflicted barbaric horrors on the people of Afghanistan the world’s greatest military power, along with its NATO allies, stands humiliated, demoralized and defeated, forced to abandon their claimed nation-building project in the face of irreversible Taliban victories over the past year and longer.
