iciHaiti - Social : Vibrant homage of UN Woman to Marie Antoinette Duclaire
UN Women condemns the assassinations of Haitian citizens on June 29, 2021 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-34110-haiti-flash-carnage-in-delmas-32-at-least-15-dead-the-pnh-accuses-fantome-509.html and pays a heartfelt tribute to one of the victims, "[...] Marie Antoinette Duclaire, Young feminist leader committed to her courageous fight for women's rights, Peace in Haiti and the meaningful participation of young people and women in politics.

It is with immense dismay that UN Women learned of the assassination of at least 15 people including Marie Antoinette Duclaire, journalist and committed feminist and Diego Charles, investigative journalist on the night of June 29 to 30, 2021 in the Haitian capital.

UN Women strongly condemns these criminal attacks perpetrated against these citizens and offers its deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims of this heinous violence and to the Haitian people.
We extend our sympathies to all the women, members of the Solidarity of Women Journalists of Haiti (SOFEJH) for the sudden disappearance of their colleague Marie Antoinette Duclaire who fought for the emergence of women journalists and respect for women's rights.

On this sad occasion, we express our compassion to all feminist and women's organizations hard hit by the immense loss of Marie Antoinette Duclaire, murdered at the age of 33.

We join our voices to those of all women and girls around the world to pay a vibrant tribute to Marie Antoinette Duclaire for the relentless fight led for the respect of women's rights, for peace in Haiti and for the increased involvement of women and men and young people in politics. We salute the immense courage and departure of Marie-Antoinette Duclaire, who continued her fight until her last breath despite the violent attacks on her home, riddled with bullets on February 23, 2021.

We urge the Haitian State to take all necessary haste to end insecurity and impunity against all crimes; note that many of them are committed against women and journalists. In this pivotal and sensitive period, UN Women calls on the Haitian state to take all measures to strengthen the prevention and punishment of violence against women activists and women in politics."
