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.”
