Missions

The principle missions of MPP are the following:

  • To promote the organization of the entire mass of poor peasants of Haïti (men, women, youths) in order to fight to build a society where basic human needs are satisfied (food, housing, education, employment, health care, leisure, etc.), all the while respecting the identity and liberty of the people.
  • To create a project of popular education that will allow impoverished peasants to become aware of their situation of exploitation and oppression, so that they can organize and mobilize themselves to transform this subhuman situation.
  • To fight for true agrarian reform allowing impoverished peasants to participate in different times of the production process and to be the main beneficiaries.
