Haiti Has Suffered Under Western Occupations And Interference In Its Affairs. The people of Haiti are struggling to break free from that domination and can look to mass movements in Francophone Africa. There have been nine coups in the past three years in former French colonies in Africa– Mali, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Chad, Niger, Tunisia and recently Gabon. Some in Francophone Africa have realized something that Haitians once knew over 200 years ago under the leadership of Jean Jacques Dessalines: The meddling in the affairs of an independent nation will not be tolerated simply because the dominion of that nation . . .
Comrades in struggle, fighters for the liberation of Africa, friends of the African peoples, We, the revolutionary pan-African organizations, raise our voices with unshakeable determination to denounce the inhuman and illegitimate sanctions imposed on Niger by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Monetary Union of West African States (UEMOA), slavishly orchestrated by the imperialist and exploitative countries that continue to bleed our continent.

Military Coups in Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger On July 26, 2023 in a military coup d’etat, the National Council for the Safeguard of the Homeland (CNSP) ousted Niger president Mohamed Bazoum and took control of the country. This followed recent coups in Burkina Faso, Guinea-Conakry, Mali, and Chad.
