Members of Montreal’s Haitian community gathered on Sunday to rally in solidarity with those in Haiti protesting against corruption and mismanagement in Haitian politics.

“I feel I cannot just stay idle and do nothing,” Jennie-Laure Sully said in an interview with CTV News. “I feel responsible to do something since I’m here.”

Several of the protesters called of President Jovenel Moise to step down and for a change to Haiti’s political and social system.

“They want a change of system because they don’t want another puppet that is just at the service of the U.S., Canada and France,” she said. “They want somebody who is really there for the people.”

    The U.S government, Canada and France are responsible for the dire state of affair the Haitian people have been suffering and enduring since the inception of Haiti. It is unacceptable for those three countries imposing their exploitation program on the people of Haiti. The Haitian people have been displaying their rejection of this corrupted president for three years, and continuing demonstration to change this corrupted government France, Canada, and the U.S had imposed on the Haitian nation, against the people’s will.
