The USA and Mexico said that they are preparing a U.N. resolution that would authorize an international mission for security intervention in Haiti, whose puppet government issued a distress call for the people of the hurricane and earthquake crisis-wracked nation.

U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield made the announcement at an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council as thousands across Haiti organized protests demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry.

The demonstrations marked the day the country commemorated the death of Jean-Jacques Dessalines, a slave who became the leader of the world’s first Black republic.

The U.S. ambassador said the proposed non-U.N. mission would be limited in time and scope and be led by a partner country that was not named with the necessary experience, like France required for such an effort to be effective.

As usual the intervention force would also have a mandate to use military force if found necessary. The USA wants to lock up the opposition figures in Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

She said the resolution being worked on is a direct response to a request on October 7, 2022 by prime minister Henry and the Haitian Council of Ministers for international assistance to help restore security and alleviate the designed humanitarian crisis.

It reflects one option in a letter from U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to the council on October 9 that called for deployment of a rapid action force by one or several U.N. member states to help Haiti’s National Police.
