A CALL for ZERO-TOLERANCE of ANTI-BLACK RACISM in Dominican Republic on residents of Haitian ancestry

The officers and members of the Clement Payne Movement of Barbados are demanding that the Caribbean region functions and be treated as a “Zone of Zero-tolerance of all manifestations of anti-Black racism”.

We make this Call against the background of the September 25, 2013 ruling of the Constitutional Court of the Dominican Republic which effectively decreed that some 250,000 black persons of Haitian ancestry who were born in the Dominican Republic must be stripped of their Dominican citizenship and all the rights that go with such citizenship.
