Haiti endures an ‘assault on democracy’ as Moise clings to power

Yamiche Alcindor:

Gangs have become more powerful. Kidnappings have skyrocketed and become more brazen, like this one caught on a church livestream.

Civilian deaths are on the rise. People all over the island nation are terrified. They say, even for a country that has long struggled, these past few months have felt like a new rock bottom.

Even a notorious gang leader, Jimmy Cherizier, known as Barbecue, walks the streets freely, in his neighborhood, hailed as a hero. Critics argue President Moise is turning a blind eye to gangs, at best, and, at worst, colluding with them.
