The Organization of American States (OAS) held a meeting on Haiti on the sidelines of its General Assembly in the Peruvian capital of Lima. At that meeting, 19 OAS member nations signed a resolution affirming their commitment to aiding Haiti in overcoming its security issues and urging the international community to provide security assistance and strengthen the Police. According to a statement on the Global Affairs Canada website, “We reaffirm our commitment to helping Haitians overcome the complex security challenges facing the country, and we call on the international community to provide robust security assistance, including strengthening the Haitian National Police.”

These nations urged, as they had in earlier meetings, on the creation of a humanitarian corridor for the provision of petroleum. “We are dedicated to collaborating closely in order to bring peace to Haiti. We denounce the wrongdoing carried out by armed groups,” he says.

The statement continued, “We implore the parties at the heart of the conflict to immediately establish humanitarian corridors and restore the supply of fuel from the Varreux terminal, as well as drinking water, to meet the basic needs of the Haitian populace and enable hospitals to address the rise in cholera cases in the nation. The signatories additionally demonstrated their willingness to consider “typically Haitian solutions to the problem, arising from an inclusive dialogue.”

In order to find a workable and long-lasting political solution, we encourage all parties involved in Haitian society, especially women and youth, to continue an inclusive, peaceful, and productive political conversation. The reestablishment of security and the holding of free and fair elections will remain difficult without such an accord.

This is classic delay tactics. I wonder if it took this long to round up military support for the Ukraine? What amazes me is that people speak of giving aid to Haiti. The population of Haiti is 11,000,000. The population of the Ukraine is 44,000,000. According to USAID they contributed 100,000,000$ in 2020 to Haiti or $9 per Haitian. In 2021, the US provided over 17 billion$ to the Ukraine with USAID contributing 1.3 billion$ or $30 per Ukrainian. Only comparing USAID contributions, this is troubling when considering who is contributing to the tax pool in the US. There are approx. 1.1 million Haitians living in the US and approx. 1.1 million Ukrainians living in the US. Similar population size in the US, contributing tax dollars for all income and consumer purchases. The US via USAID has donated more than 3X more to the Ukraine as to what was donated to Haiti. Haiti is in the US’s front yard! Where is that BS document, the Monroe Doctrine, and where is the parity?
