On the occasion of the bicentennial of the death of Napoleon 1er, the CoEH wishes to highlight the essential contribution of the Haitian people in sanctifying the universality of human rights without distinction of condition or “race”, and thus pursuing the ideals of the French Revolution the emperor eventually thwarted for economic reasons.
CoEH press release on the occasion of the international day of peasant struggles – Free zone project in Savane Diane
The current degradation of food security in Haiti is of great concern for the members of the CoEH (Europe Haiti Coordination), who reiterate their full support to local farmer organizations. They denounce Jovenel Moise’s illegal and inappropriate decision to re-assign lands initially dedicated to the country’s food security for the production of export goods. This decision will indeed deprive many families from a land access that is essential to their survival.
In view of the current developments in Haiti, the COEH is appealing to the European Union and its member states to distance themselves from Mr. Jovenel Moïse, unlawfully holding power in Haiti since February 7, 2021, the anticipated date of his resignation according to the constitution. We ask that the European Union instead listens to and supports the Haitian civil society, which for the last two years has been proposing alternatives for a peaceful transition towards a truly democratic and open society.
