IT STAYS WITH YOU: use of force by UN peacekeepers in Haiti

The UN’s deadly legacy in Haiti

Between 2004 and 2007, UN peacekeeping troops carried out several raids in Cité Soleil, a poor neighbourhood of Port-au-Prince.

The raids were targeting criminal gangs, but scores of civilians were killed and many more injured as well as houses destroyed.

The UN has never visited the neighbourhoods to investigate or hear the testimonies of the families affected, and no medical care was provided to people injured in the raids.
