HAITI AFTER ARISTIDE:
a grassroots perspective
In US solidarity circles, the situation in Haiti has
largely been reduced to a struggle between US-led
interests and forces aligned with ousted president
Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his Lavalas Family party.

the Aristide regime was not an ally but an obstacle to
organizing for radical change. Today, under extremely
difficult circumstances, the grassroots movement
continues to organize against foreign occupation and
the neoliberal economic policies of the US, the IMF
and the World Bank. Haiti's grassroots sector is
looking for support from the US solidarity movement in
this truly revolutionary struggle.
