How US influence contributed to a modern Haitian uprising

February 2021 saw a fresh political crisis for the nation of Haiti as local strongman Jovenel Moïse arrested a fresh batch of opposition figures, claiming they were undertaking a coup against his administration. What followed after was to be the usual for the Haitian masses as they gathered once more to oppose the hegemonic rule of Moïse.
