[Marxism] Brazil Rejects U.S. Call for Haiti Crackdown

It would be a bit difficult now for the United States to
re-invade Haiti to expel the Brazilian and Chinese troops
as well as those hundreds of Cuban doctors, I think. This
may well explain why Cuba hasn't been protesting about it
all very loudly. They've made their position against the
occupation unmistakeably clear. They're for teachers and
doctors, not soldiers and or for the forces of occupation.

One might argue that the Brazilian soldiers in MINIUSTAH
should intervene to stop Haitian police when they repress
demonstrators, but isn't it also possible that their
presence limits police violence?
