A Mass Struggle Against The Occupation of Haiti

A BAP Toolkit

What is Happening in Haiti?

Amidst Haiti's ongoing struggle for autonomy, decades after the 2004 coup that removed President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the nation remains trapped in neocolonial dominance and threatened by imperialist agendas, primarily from the United States. The assassination of President Jovenel Moïse in 2021 further exacerbated the crisis, leaving the country without elected leadership. Unelected Prime Minister Ariel Henry, perceived as a puppet for foreign interests, particularly the CORE GROUP, OAS, United Nations Security Council, under the administration of Biden, obstructed Haitian sovereignty and suppressed popular dissent through paramilitary groups and police violence.

After months of the U.S., Core Group, and other imperialist collaborators working to execute an armed intervention into Haiti that they are now calling a “Multinational Security Service,” ex-de facto Prime Minister Ariel Henry has been removed from his illegitimately-held position. The same imperialist cabal, including Haiti’s capitalist class, have created the conditions making military intervention appear necessary and inevitably want to appoint a favorable “transitional government,” without input from the Haitian people.

We must highlight and support the masses of Haitians on the ground in Haiti. We must reject western media’s stories that Haiti is a “failed state” over-run by “gang violence”. Haiti doesn’t need any further outside intervention. Black Alliance for Peace member organization MOLEGHAF calls for a gathering of all revolutionary forces in Haiti to unite against the imperialist forces that plan on continuing the unfair elections and occupation of Haiti. It is our responsibility to spread correct information so that hands can finally be off Haiti and our Americas can be a Zone of Peace.

What Is the Core Group?

First convened in 2004 under the authority of the UN Security Council resolution that led to the military invasion and foreign occupation of Haiti, the Core Group is a self-styled council consisting of the diplomats of foreign countries with political and economic interests in Haiti, combined with the representatives of a number of multilateral organizations and agencies (including the IMF and World Bank).

Who are the members of the Core Group?

While the membership of The Core Group has fluctuated since its initial formation, it currently has nine members: Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, United States, European Union, the Organization of American States, and the United Nations Organization. Significantly, the group has never had a Haitian representative, and often meets without Haitian representation.

What purpose does it serve?

The Core Group was set up to coordinate the various branches and elements of the United Nations occupation in Haiti (MINUSTAH).

Neither neutral nor passive, the Core Group plays an active, interventionist role in Haiti’s everyday political affairs. It has worked to extend and protect foreign economic interests in Haiti. And it has consistently intervened in Haiti’s sovereign political affairs, often without the collaboration or consent of the Haitian government. Importantly, there is no prescribed term-limit on the Core Group’s mandate; theoretically it could be in place in perpetuity.

What Is the Organization of American States?

Chartered in 1948, the OAS is a multilateral association of 34 states representing the American hemisphere. Its ostensible purpose is to promote peaceful settlement of disputes, provide collective security, and encourage economic and social cooperation among member states. However, the United States is the dominant force within the OAS. The U.S. provides 60% of the organization’s funding and it has always been under U.S. economic and ideological influence. As such, the OAS has long served as a tool of U.S. imperialism: Via election meddling, diplomatic chicanery, supporting pro-US and right-wing governments, and aggressively assisting the expansion of neoliberalism and the market economy throughout the Americas.

The OAS and Haiti

The OAS has worked as an extension of U.S. power in Haiti. It is part of the Core Group, an unelected group of foreign governments and institutions (the U.S., UN, France, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Spain, the European Union). Members of the Core Group have appointed themselves as the arbiters of Haitian politics and economics–while serving as the overseers of the ongoing de facto military occupation of Haiti by United Nations forces.

While the OAS’s charter expressly states that it should not interfere in the “internal jurisdiction of member states,” the organization has directly intervened in Haitian elections in 2010 and 2015/2016. Most recently, the OAS has supported the presidency of Jovenel Moïse. Right-wing OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro issued a statement affirming Moïse’s illegal claim that his term ends in February 2022, rather than February 2021 as stipulated by the Haitian constitution, and as affirmed by Haitian civil society. OAS interference in Haiti’s electoral process on behalf of the U.S. has contributed to the current constitutional and political crisis.

  1. The UN's presence in Haiti has been marred by violence and neglect. MINUSTAH's costly operation saw thousands of troops, but brought brutality, racism, and disease.

How to Wheatpaste (based on Its GoingDown’s instructions)

Wheatpasting is a simple, dirt-cheap way of spreading ideas, news, analyses,

and creative expression outside of (and against) the pacified modes made available by the institutions that control and mangle our lives.


(OR, you can use a gallon of pre-made “wallpaper paste,” which can be

bought cheaply at hardware stores. If you do this, you can skip the first

three steps below.)


  1. Mix 1 cup of flour with 2 cups of water in a pan. Stir until no lumps.
  2. Allow the mixture to boil and overheat until it thickens.
  3. Cook for about half an hour and let it cool.
  4. Put the wheatpaste solution into a container, grab a paintbrush, some flyers, and head out into the night. Keep in mind wheatpasting is not “legal” and, therefore, it is best to go late at night to avoid being seen by cops.
  5. When you locate a visible, non-porous surface like metal or glass, use the paintbrush to apply the wheatpaste to either the back of the flyer or the surface itself and smooth the flyer down, so there are little or no air bubbles.
  6. Add more wheatpaste on the front of the flyer (especially the edges) to secure it to the surface.

At the moment, the Haitians are again revolting and striving to shake off the yoke of European and American oppressors. Listen to the explanations of Professor D.
