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.

Time for justice

We are calling for an independent and transparent investigation into the use of deadly force by peacekeepers in Haiti.

Key issues we believe the UN needs to address are:

  • 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.
  • The lack of medical care provided to people injured in raids. In impoverished neighbourhoods, injuries went untreated.
