Haitians In Tent Cities Are Now Being Evicted!
It's bad enough to be homeless in Haiti after the earthquake and living in a tent city, now thousands of Haitians are fighting forced evictions. The Haitian landowners want their land back. They want the people OUT...
It has been six months since the earthquake and the Haitian government still has not been able to come up with a plan for sheltering the all the Haitian citizens made homeless by the Haiti earthquake.
What I usually hear in times like this is:
"OHHHH... Nou Tout Se Ayisyen... Mezanmi... Poukisa Gran Neg Ap Fe Malere Pase Mize Konsa?"
But the question is:
Personal property is personal property... Are these landowners LEGALLY entitled to protect what's rightfully theirs?
OR... Should we focus on the MORAL question... Is it fair?
In Haiti, once you loose your land, your tend to loose it forever.
The case of Maissade Haiti...
I've been told by a family member that the land that makes up the Haitian city of Maissade once belonged to members of my family.
She said that there are documents still in existence that can prove it... But... Hmmm... I thinks it might be too late to evict the illegal tenants... LOL...
Most of the tent cities in Haiti are built on private property...
There are more than 1,200 tent cities / refugee camps scattered in Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas affected by the earthquake but here is the big surprise...
ONLY 206 of them are officially recognized...
Does that surprise you?
This information is from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).
The landowners want their property back!
More than 1,000 little tent cities in Haiti are on private property. These landowners want to rid their land off these illegal residents in order to "build news homes or sell their land on Haiti's booming real-estate market" according an article recently posted on The Christian Science Monitor.
If you don't think this serious enough, the article also mentioned a case in Delmas 60 where a landowner showed up with "with 10 armed men in police uniforms to coerce the 178 homeless people here to leave."
Can you begin to imagine what's the worse that can happen?
Will the Haitian government wait until it happens?
What do you think?

Stick to the topic, or go somewhere
Learn how to spell before you send out hateful email.
Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN.
You are craving for attention, and this is not a healthy way to get it.
Go check the spelling of CHIHUAHUA, and maybe you will learn something.
My computer is gone for maintenance, so your email will not be seen for a very long
Now i understand you. Your knowledge about sex changes must be from personal experience.
I also imagine you must have looked like a real chiwawa in your past form. Say
I see that you ran out of words, and are becoming delirious.
Do you like carrot Richard?
Why you people are attacking Josy this way?
She is simply looking out for us females.
You have no business talking to her this way.
You guys are always looking down on us. At least, now someone is talking on our behalf.
You go Josy, let them know what is
Boyyyyyy! I hope you are not a teacher in that JHS, because my dear if you are, let us all pray to God for those poor kids. Go have a carrot or two on my behalf.
Don't forget some wine, research has shown a glass of wine a day is good for you. God
YOU ARE SO STUPID, AND "JHS" STANDS FOR JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL.
YOU ARE THE FUTURE OF THIS COUNTRY, AND IT IS SAD. YOU DO NOT GET CHILD SUPPORT WHEN YOU ARE MARRIED, AND LIVING TOGETHER AS A FAMILY.
YOU STILL DO NOT GET IT, BECAUSE YOUR BRAIN IS COOKED AND YOU ARE HOPELESS.
You are wayyyyy to educated for me. What can i say. Sorry you are not getting any child support as you are promoting to all the haitian women out there.
Have a blessed day Jossy.
Listen "pants on the ground" it is a blessing to be a grandparent, and you might never be one fool. You are obviously an ignorant punk, and need to pull up your pants.
I suggest you go put some applications at McDonalds, Burger King, or Taco Bell and you are a parasite with too much free time on his hands.
You are probably leashing on a female, and then resent them. You can take your Good Enough Diploma with you. I am not playing games with you, and suggest you stop sending stupid emails to me. We have good work ethics in my family, and we all worked hard. I never collected child support, and my children have been working from high school.
