It Stays With You: Use of Force by UN Peacekeepers in Haiti

It Stays With You: Use of Force by UN Peacekeepers in Haiti

Between 2005 and 2007 UN peacekeeping troops carried out several raids on Cité Soleil, an economically-depressed neighbourhood of Port-au-Prince in Haiti.

The raids were targeted against leaders of criminal gangs but scores of other people were killed, including children, and many more injured. Amnesty International has repeatedly called on the UN to carry out an impartial investigation into these deaths and publish the results: but it has not done so.

This documentary returns to Cité Soleil and using participatory practices examines the impact of those raids on the community and to find out how victims of those raids have fared in the ten years since they occurred.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film directors.

This event will be recorded. Joining instructions for Zoom will be sent 24 hours in advance.
