Haiti - Social : Halte ! Let's save our institutions
According fifteen organizations for Promotion and Defense of Human Rights, the Foundation of Group Justice Alternative (FGAJ), the Mobile Institute of Democratic Education (IMED), the Haitian Coalition of Female Leaders (COHFEL), Haitian Solidarity of Defense of Human Rights (SOHDDH), the Collective Defenders Plus, the Haitian Justice Observatory (OHJ), Defenders without Frontiers of Human Rights (DESAFRODH), the National Observer Network for Democracy and Human Rights (RONDDH), the Zanmi Timoun Foundation, the Collective of Haitians for the Fight Against Poverty (COHLUTP), the Collective of Organizations for the Defense of Rights of Migrants and Returnees (CODDEMIR), Combite for Peace and Development (CPD), the Association Kouraj pou Prote je Dwa Moun (Kouraj), the Association of Young women for Culture and Development of Haiti (AJFCDHA) and LINADDH ; the country's institutions seem to be held hostage by politics, a de facto presidency and a parliament suffering a legitimacy deficit, and appeal for a strengthening of our institutions.

"For some time, we witnessing a downward spiral of our institutions. Instead of bringing a little hope, the latest events are only increasing the worries of a population already in distress. It seems to be held hostage by politics, a de facto presidency and a parliament suffering a legitimacy deficit.

A conjoncture too deleterious to the development of democracy must challenge us.

We, organizations for Promotion and Defense of Human Rights guardians of democratic temple, launching a vibrant appeal for a strengthening of our institutions and the way we act by giving more space to collective negotiation and to the respect of the laws of the Republic.

No unilateral action in force, as suggested by the shepherd of the lost herd in the current political fauna, can lead to a viable solution. The proposed action is incompatible with the Constitution and to that democracy under construction. Furthermore, no sector including those who watch to the respect of rights and civil liberties can assume the right to dictate to the State officials the decisions to be adopted.

Once again, the organizations of promotion and Defence of Human Rights signatories of this note invite the three powers of the State Co-custodians of the National Sovereign (the Executive, the Judiciary and Parliament) to engage as soon as possible a real constructive dialogue and transparent, in order to find a consensual response to this institutional crisis at the highest State level. Haiti, this country of all emergencies, needs to breathe and free itself of any attempts of personal power at the expense of the majority victim of political exclusion and socio-economic inequality.

The organizations for Promotion and Defense of Human Rights signatories of this note are launching an urgent appeal to the population in general and social and progressive organizations to observe citizen vigilance by organizing in a democratic way to demand the constitutional normality in the country. And at the same time to safeguard democratic achievements, only guarantors of fundamental rights of the human beings."
