Georgette Mulheir and Defend Haiti´s Democracy are Working to Restore order to Haiti
There are many misconceptions about liberty. Despite what many people may think, self-determination is not a guarantee and it is not free. For every free person that lives, many have died to earn that liberty. The current situation in Haiti is a modern-day example of what happens when democracy is lost. Individuals like Georgette Mulheir and her organization, Defend Haiti’s Democracy, do their best to raise awareness of Haiti’s current situation and help the country restore a democratic government.
The situation in Haiti is an affront to freedom throughout the world. The Haitian parliament dissolved in early 2020 and there are now no democratic national or local governments. The people must live under oppressive governmental-gang alliances that have made horror and despair part of every Haitian’s life. The President, Jovenel Moise, leads by decree and the power of his secret police, who rule the citizens through fear (Newsanyway).
The Defend Haiti’s Democracy group is working to end the crimes against humanity in Haiti and restore a democratic government. The founder of the group, Georgette Mulheir, believes that the global community must help those who are suffering throughout the world. Georgette Mulheir has built a long and far-reaching career out of helping people who are suffering. Georgette Mulheir has advised governments, financial donors and recruited international colleagues to help those who need help most. She helped mothers in Sudan protect their children who they had to leave in the streets or face punishment under Sharia Law.
She then advocated for a change in the law that decriminalized single motherhood and saved the lives of 10,000 babies. Haiti is in crisis and is on the verge of becoming a full-fledged dictatorship. The Haitian people face unspeakable terror each day due to a corrupt government and powerful gangs that run the streets. Georgette Mulheir is an award-winning social worker who believes that it is not too late to restore democracy to Haiti. She and the Defend Haiti’s Democracy movement understand that the world must come together to aid our Haitian Brothers and sisters.
