Parfait, cette marche me faire rappeler les marches de Goman de la Grand'Anse au Cap lors de la lutte pour l'indépendance.

Et pourtant les hommes disent la terre est à eux or à l'Eternel la terre et ce qu'elle renferme.

The 168-13 ruling is not a mistake.

The Dominican Republic does not grant citizenship to all those born within its jurisdiction.

1. Haiti keep dumping poor immigrants on the Dominican Republic and feels entitled to do so.

2. Haitians lie to ban eggs and meat products from DR (The World Health Organization had declared the Dominican Republic free of bird flu three years before the ban)

listen when the DR government made that mistake I was more upset than anybody else, now we needs to show the Domican government, not the dominican people's that we are not the same with them. those who asked for revenge, I think you need to go back to history read about Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Malcolm X. you can't fight darkness in the dark, u needs to put light, you can't fight violence by being violent so please haitian people's show the world what they think about us is not true they wrong, dead wrong.
