Haiti - Politic : 27 Haitian writers demand the resignation of President Moïse
In an open letter, 27 Haitian writers join their voices to those who demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse. Letter of which we invite you to share the main extracts.

Excerpts from the open letter :

"We do not agree with the way we are governed [...] The degrading spectacle that the President of the Republic, the Government and the parliamentary majority give to the Nation and to the world is shameful. We are living the rout of an outmoded government, just concerned to save its privileges and its ill-gotten booty on the back of the Nation.


In the life of each people come those moments when he must engage his story and his destiny. It has come time for change. We join our voices to those who demand the resignation of the President of the Republic. But let us say from the outset, loud and clear, no lasting transformation of our society will be achieved without taking into account the values ​​and principles that alone can ensure the advent of a more just, united and fraternal society.

No democratic construction is possible in Haiti without the reduction of inequalities, without a new ethics and means to support the public service in the enhancement of the common good.


Let's build a Government of National Unity. Let's build a priority strategy for the recovery of the rule of law. It's been a long time since we talk about a national conference, a general assembly. But none of this will be possible if there is no trust around the table. Let's have the courage to say aloud where the rub is. Mistrust, jealousies, rivalries, marronnage, material thirs divide us and paralyze us especially. Let's build trust and tolerance to move toward solutions that resemble us and bring us together.

The first act likely to restore confidence is the legitimate holding of the PetroCaribe trial. An essential step in our transformation process [...] And then, let's prepare to vote when the time comes. Let us prepare to vote today, but on the basis of policies, strategies and programs of national and local interest for the building of which we will have contributed individually and collectively, especially within the framework of our institutional, professional organizations and community.


We do not have much time left. There is no longer any question of adapting to a system that no longer works. No more to shut up and pretend that things will change as if it were self-evident.

We Haitian writers want to continue to be useful to the Nation [...] We want real social projects for vulnerable populations. We want coherent public policies favoring national production, investment, education for all, individual freedoms, freedom of expression, culture... We invite everyone to play their role as citizens and to work for the advent of the Haiti we want.
