Another long weekend goes to waste in Haiti. Activities interrupted by protests

November 01 2018, All Saints' Day in Haiti was ruined this year. even the director of the Cimetière de Port-au-Prince was complaining on television because the crowd that was expected to come "fêter avec les morts au cimetière" (party with the dead, an annual ritual in Haiti) were disturbed by street protest and sporadic gun fire.

Haitians in the diaspora can't wait for along weekend to have fun and travel lond distances to visit family members. But in Haiti, another long weekend was wasted with the same ****... A never ending street protest that spoils every single social activity.

A young lady who is originally from he Sud department in Haiti was afraid to go visit her parents because of armed bandits who have a strong hold near Martissant, the only road that lead to where her family lives.

The State has no control of this out of control democracy! Only street protesters and armed gunmen can move around. For all the law abiding citizens of Haiti, it's best to stay at home and eat your rice and chicken, if you are blessed with the money to buy it.

How is that for a long weekend in Haiti?

I am tired of writing as if I am trashing my country but it's the reality man! It really sucks sometimes! Most of the time!

Those streets protests are really sickening.

Wèl, frè pa-m,, lòt peyi gen demokrasi pa yo; nou menm ann Ayiti, nou gen zafè pa-nou: yon Denmon-k-Rasi ki anvayi a, fè nou tounen denmon nan kò youn lòt, san pitye, san mizerikòd, san lanmou san krent.

Bondye ki enspire lakrent lan pa la nan lye saa; nou ranplase Li ki Dye vivan an ak dye lèmò.

Dye lanmò yo paka pote lavi! Se Bondye Lavi a sèlman pou nou ta rele, kisa ou panse?

San pa sa, lanfè ap kale denmon deplizanpli
