DEADLY DIPLOMACY: THE 100th ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNITED STATES OCCUPATION OF HAITI | Black Star News

The U.S. rationale for occupying Haiti in 1915 was to supposedly restore political order and maintain economic stability in Haiti. Instead, given its chicanery, the U.S. occupation of Haiti has led to unintended and negative consequences for Haiti. These consequences include, but are not limited to the U.S. gaining complete control of Haitian finances; the manipulation of the political elections in Haiti along with the U.S. rewriting the Haitian constitution; and the neglect of basic human rights as evident in oppressive educational training policies and forced labor practices. In the long run, sending the U.S. military to invade Haiti did more harm than good and the occupation has caused Haiti to this day to become vulnerable to further exploitation by the United States, Canada, Europe, United Nations, and NGOs.
