Haiti/Dominican Republic: The construction of a wall at the border concerns organizations in both countries
On February 21, 2022, the Dominican authorities launched the much trumpeted construction of an electrical wall approximately 380 kilometers long on the border with Haiti. The control of migratory and commercial flows, smuggling, drug and human trafficking are the arguments put forward to justify this project. Not everyone within the ruling party or in civil society organizations in the two countries is in agreement with the decision of the Dominican government. Colette Lespinasse is informing us.
At the initiative of the Greens/EFA deputy, Ms. Caroline Roose, of the European Parliament and supported by the Belgian Tricontinental Centre (CETRI), 3 Haitian women took part, on February 8, 2022, in a webinar about the situation in Haiti. Colette Lespinasse, COEH correspondent in Haiti, attended the webinar and wrote about it.
Six years ago, Haitians were mainly concerned about the economic situation. In a survey, lack of security received less than 10 percent of the vote. But according to a recent survey, gang violence, kidnappings and murders – in short, security – now completely dominate the residents. Everything else is secondary. Meanwhile, Haitian civil society and foreign countries think differently about how to tackle the crisis.
