By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The ongoing surge of gang violence in Haiti has compelled five Haitian journalists to abandon their homes, according to a report by Voice of America.

In the wake of the 2021 assassination of President Jovenel Moise, Haiti’s already precarious situation has deteriorated further. The nation now grapples not only with escalating gang violence but also with a deepening humanitarian crisis.

Several human rights organizations have criticized the Haitian government, stating that it has not taken adequate measures to safeguard its citizens from the rampant violent attacks.

Journalists, who play a critical role in shedding light on the situation, have become prime targets. They face threats and physical attacks from gangs, forcing many to escape the country to protect their lives.

The Committee to Protect Journalists has voiced its growing anxiety over the deteriorating safety conditions for media personnel in Haiti.

Further cementing these concerns, this year’s evaluation of Haiti by Reporters Without Borders highlighted the nation as one of the most perilous in the region for journalists, noting that reporters are “increasingly vilified and vulnerable.”
