The situation in Haiti is becoming increasingly chaotic, with the rise of armed groups terrorising the population. Since the assassination of President Moise in 2021, these gangs have multiplied, extending their control over the capital and certain regions. Violence, murder and rape are on the increase, causing massive displacement, food insecurity and limited access to healthcare and education. Humanitarian organisations and the United Nations are alarmed by this escalation in violence. The Haitian state is in a state of collapse, incapable of protecting its population. There is an urgent need for the international community, in particular the countries and institutions that make up the Core Group, like the European Union, which are playing an important role in this crisis, to critically re-examine the current approach and finally support the Haitian civil society players in their efforts to find a lasting Haitian solution to this interminable crisis.
During the first week of June 2023, which coincided with the start of the hurricane season, two disasters once again hit Haiti: floods in at least seven (7) departments and two earthquakes in Grand-Anse. As always, human lives were lost, animals drowned and property destroyed, the environment damaged. And as always, those who have the responsibility of managing the country are absent. Which makes more than one say that without a drastic break with this way of governance, we risk losing Haiti definitively.
