Justice For Haitian Refugees!
Solidarité Québec-Haiti and Debout pour la dignité organized a demonstration in Montreal on Saturday September 25 to vehemently denounce U.S. racism against Haitians, as well as the deportations that are in violation of international law. The MLPC joined the demonstration and calls on all Quebeckers and Canadians to join the denunciation.
Solidarité Québec-Haiti and Debout pour la dignité point out:
“Over the past few days, we have witnessed horrific pictures of the inhumane treatment being meted out to refugees, mainly originating from Haiti, at the border between Mexico and Texas. The horror reached its peak when the Biden administration decided to deport thousands of these refugees to Haiti after having set border agents on horseback on their trail who, just like veritable slave driver patrolmen, terrorized, insulted and dispersed them.
“Never have such degrading tactics been deployed against migrants at the Texas border. Is it because this time the migrants are Blacks originating from Haiti? Everything seems to suggest that nothing has changed when it comes to the Trump and Biden administrations. White supremacy is at the base of U.S. policy and the entire world can see it affirming itself unabashedly against Haitian refugees, in total disregard of international conventions dealing with the rights of asylum seekers. The actions of the Biden administration are all the more condemnable taking into account the fact that these Haitian refugees fled from Haiti because of the chaos created through the interference of the U.S., Canada and other member countries of the Core Group in Haiti.”
Denounce Racist U.S. Deportation and Treatment of Haitian and all refugees! Get Candada out of the so-called Core Group! Justice for Haitian Refugees! The Reunification of Families Now!
