Haitian President Moïse Assassinated: What Does It Mean?

Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated, and questions are swirling: Who did it? And why? But as Western governments and bodies use this as an excuse to encroach on Haiti even more, the most important question we should be asking is: How do we get the capitalist elites off our backs and win our liberation?

Haitian-born Jemima Pierre is the Black Alliance for Peace Haiti/Americas Coordinator & Associate Professor of African American Studies and Anthropology at UCLA, and Chris Bernadel is a member of the BAP Haiti Committee. They explain what happened and the broader political dynamics at play.
