Join the Association of Haitian Professionals (AHP) & other concerned organizations to march to the Dominican Republic Embassy in Washington, DC on Monday, June 22nd, 2015. The event will begin with a rally at Dupont Circle at 5:30pm followed by the march to the embassy. They are calling for individuals and concerned organizations to march in solidarity to speak out against this injustice and crime against human rights in the Dominican Republic.
The 2013 ruling (TC 168-13) suddenly stripped over 200,000 Dominicans of Haitian descent of their citizenship going back as far as 1929. This ruling violates the DR’s own constitution at the time as well as international human rights conventions. Now, the DR is enforcing this law with forced deportations and expulsions.
Together, our voices will express opposition to this gross violation of human rights happening in the DR right now! Please join on Monday, June 22nd, 2015 as hundreds gather to protest against this injustice. Please bring signs and share this information.
