St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): A Haitian activist is calling for the Dominica Republic to be boycotted in the same manner that South Africa was during the apartheid era.
Myrtha Desulme says the global community should speak out against a September 23 constitutional court ruling that strips mainly Dominicans of Haitian descent of their citizenship.
It’s thought that more than 200,000 people could be made stateless by the ruling in Santo Domingo.
Desulme says the decision is racist and abominable, and should not be allowed to stand.
“It leaves about 210,000 people in limbo, who are completely stateless. It is a horrible, it’s a crime against humanity, it is blatant apartheid. It’s their own citizens which they are now refusing to recognize,” Desulme told Winn FM’s The Bigger Picture.
