As violence in Haiti rises under President Moïse, how can citizens feel safe?


Haiti, the Caribbean nation with a long history of struggles, now faces a new level of insecurity as gang activity and kidnappings skyrocket. Critics, including clergy members and civil rights activists in the country, argue that much of the violence is tied to President Jovenel Moïse illegally attacking democratic institutions like the judicial and legislative branches and his allowance of gang leaders to operate seemingly without consequence. In an interview with PBS NewsHour, Haiti’s ambassador to the U.S., Bocchit Edmond defended the president’s actions and argued that in his view, most of the country is “quite safe.”
