Ile-a-Vache Haiti - Residents resisting tourism plans for the island

Haiti Open For Business
QUESTION: What is wrong with a plan to construct an International airport, build roads, rebuild the port, build several hotels and electrify an island that has been ignored since the beginning of time? Well ask the residents of Ile-a-Vache Haiti. Some of them think it is a bad idea...

I just read an article on AlterPresse saying: "Des habitants de l'Ile à Vache lancent, ce lundi 6 janvier 2014, un ultimatum d'une semaine pour que le gouvernement de Laurent Salvador Lamothe renonce à son projet Destination touristique Ile à Vache."

In other words... these residents want the government to abandon everything I mentioned above or else...

A wise man once told me:

"If you want to change some things in your life, you've got to CHANGE some things in your life..."

Every Haitian wants to Haiti to change and become a better country as long as they are not affected by that change.

What do you think about that?
