"...Haiti beswen yon fos danble pou mete lòd nan dezod"...

Ha ha! Nan tan demonrasi saa, kilès moun ki gen dwa/otorite pou met lòd nan dezòd?

Pa gen pyès moun ki ka/dwe vin DIKTE Ayisyen sa pou yo fè, ni kijan pou yo "reklame" dwa yo! ...Depi se pou revandike dwa, pèp pran lari, sitwayen onèt e inosan pa gen okenn dwa pou jwenn pwoteksyon kont okenn krim

Viv Demonrasi! ...Aba lòt la! ...Aba lajistis e
