Peyi Lock - Even Toothpaste is in short supply on supermarket shelves in Haiti!

The political opposition in Haiti has done such a wonderful job crippling the country's economy these days that even toothpaste is in short supply at the local supermarket.


things that make you go hmmm

"The shelves are empty," another customer said, "I can't even buy butter."

With this "peyi lock" phenomenon for over a month, most stores in the provinces cannot refill their shelves with much needed supplies from the capital. Getting things in out of Port-au-Prince is a big problem, leaving consumers stranded, money in hand, unable to purchase the things they need everyday.

There is literally no baked goods at the market because it all comes from supplies in Port-au-Prince. there are very few items for available. I've had to change my brand or toothpaste twice already this past month because each time you go to the local market you have no choice but to buy what's available.

What the opposition is doing to the people of Haiti, it is is not politics. This is terrorism!
