Justice and Reparations!: Haiti’s Cholera Victims Demand Accountability at UN | Common Dreams


Haitian protesters and their advocates brought their voices outside the United Nations headquarters on Thursday, holding a demonstration to demand justice and reparations for the deadly cholera outbreak brought to the poverty-stricken nation by UN forces.

Over 8,000 Haitians have died and over 675,000 have been sickened by cholera in the last three years, and while evidence abounds that it was brought to the country by Nepalese forces deployed by the UN after the devastating earthquake, the UN has repeatedly evaded responsibility.
