« Our future is played on the barricades «: living between blocked streets in Haiti, thus begins an 8th week with the greatest contempt of the leaders displaying a behavior of unconsciousness and military occupation by foreigners.
With special units of the PNH recalling the exactions of the FAd'H and the henchmen of Duvalier in 1985 and 1986, who do not hesitate to shoot at close range on the demonstrators demanding the departure of Jovenel Moise , the new week does not augur well for the future of Haiti under the management of a president having totally lost all its legitimacy.
Saturday, November 2, 2019 ((rezonodwes.com)) – It is in New York to more than 2400 km separating the megacity from the capital of the First Black Republic to the world, that begins an 8th consecutive week of “ country-lock ” to demand the departure of the power of Jovenel Moise, accused of 'exactions and horn ruption.
The radicalization of the country's paralysis, the massive demonstrations and the aborted attempts of the government to normalize the situation in Haiti, the 7th week “ country-lock ” ends Saturday, while the crisis worsens and continues to grow.
Exactly one week, a massive police protest that, although it was not marked by the political movement demanding the unconditional resignation of President Jovenel Moses for months, demanded wage increases, insurance and better working conditions. A week later, the police claims are still ignored by the highest police officials including DG ai Normil Rameau, irregularly appointed by a de facto prime minister.
The 8th week still sees schools keeping With their doors closed, a weeklong week of protests by factory workers and health workers who have invaded the streets of the capital Port-au-Prince denouncing corruption, in addition to demanding a complete change in the neoliberal system. imposed to resolve poverty and inequality in Haiti.
Jovenel Moise, pretending not to understand the seriousness of the crisis, insisted on the formation of a national unity government and reiterated that the country is at a crossroads, ” in which we can turn this crisis into an opportunity “, while his presence at the head of the state represents the main problem.
The President challenged and very frowned upon for the blatant corruption practiced under His administration urged the opposition to begin a dialogue to end the current crisis, while stressing that a vacancy in the executive would plunge the country into greater chaos in the hands of the gangs. The same gangs as PHTK and Michel Martelly would have armed in 2015, denounce one in the political circles in Haiti.
Finally, the socio-political crisis which rages for more than 7 weeks in Haiti, would have prevented to some two million d children to go to school, not to mention several companies that have closed their doors or reduced their staff and all this is added food insecurity suffered by nearly three million Haitians swept away by false promises of leaders promising sun, rain and earth to get them out of the dirt.
So goes Haiti like a boat tacking in the infinite skyline over the seas, without captain and rudder.
