Defeat the Long Standing Inhumane Discriminatory Practice Of The Dominican Republic

Posted By: artisticdigital on Wednesday 30 2013

DENOUNCE AND JOIN THE MOVEMENT TO DEFEAT THE LONG STANDING INHUMANE DISCRIMINATORY PRACTICE OF THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, ITS DISCRIMINATORY CONSTITUTION OF 2010, AND THE RULING OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL TRIBUNAL OF SEPTEMBER 23, 2010, REVOKING THE DOMINICAN CITIZENSHIP OF PERSONS BORN TO HAITIAN LABORERS SINCE 1929, RENDERING THEM STATELESS AND PREPARING TO ETHNICALLY CLEANSE THEM FROM THE ONLY COUNTRY THEY HAVE KNOWN.

 

Overview and Objectives

The purpose of this position statement is to bring to the attention of the entire world community to the fact that Dominicans of Haitian descent have been and are currently facing a grave state-sponsored campaign of ethnic cleansing reminiscent of the Jewish Holocaust and the Rwandan Tutsi genocide of 1994. We know that the Dominican Republic is not immune to these horrors since we have historical precedent including the Parsley Massacre of Haitians by Rafael Leondis Molina Troujillo in 1937 in which 20,000 or more Haitians were killed in the span of five (5) days because they were Haitian. In all three situations, the groups that were victimized were targeted by the ruling government of their nations as the source of the ills of the society. Legislation, executive dictates and negative propaganda fueled societal hatred of these groups so that they became scapegoats and were perceived as readily dispensable. The propaganda in the Dominican Republic has been so blatant that some Dominicans have taken the liberty to engage in vigilante hostility against Dominicans of Haitian descent and / or Haitians. “In May of 2009, a Haitian man, Carlos Nérilus, was beheaded… in Santo Domingo. Less than two years prior, a Dominican mob lynched three Haitians suspected of being responsible for the murder of a Dominican store-owner. The killer was later found not to be a Haitian.”1     READ MORE
