“The cauldron of corruption and lies has been boiling non-stop 24 hours a day. The time has come to overturn it, for Haitians to begin to see the light of peace. Haiti is for all Haitians.” – Fanmi Lavalas statement, July 8, 2018.
(Fanmi Lavalas is the party of former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Haiti’s first democratically elected president, and represents Haiti’s poor majority.)
