Cómo llegaron las bandas a dominar Haití

By Jordi Bou

March 20, 2024 - La espiral de violencia de bandas criminales provocada por el asesinato, aún no resuelto, del presidente Jovenel Moïse en 2021 ha dejado a gran parte de la empobrecida nación caribeña al borde del colapso.

Haiti has been mired in violence since the 2021 assassination of President Jovenel Moise, with street gangs engaging in kidnappings and murders while taking over large parts of the country.

On March 12, Ariel Henry, who leads an interim government, said he would step down amid growing violence and a humanitarian crisis.

Henry is currently stranded in Puerto Rico after being prevented by armed gangs from returning home.

Henry’s resignation, however, seems unlikely to solve Haiti’s decades-long crisis of governance – punctuated by violence, natural disasters and external interventions, including by the U.S. and UN – which has persisted since the Duvalier dictatorship was ended by an uprising in 1986.
