Haiti : Happy Unemployment Day, a group of students protest the May 1st Haitian Holiday

Look at this photo... It's May first in Haiti, a protest banner reads: "Happy holiday of unemployment and importation day" from the Coalition of Youth and committed academics of Haiti - COJEUEH.

Well, they have a point. Haiti imports almost everything. We even import chicken.

C'est le 1er mai en Haïti, une bannière de protestation se lit comme suit: "Bonne fête du chômage et de l'importation" de la Coalition de la jeunesse et des universitaires engagés d'Haïti - COJEUEH

Eh bien, vous devez être d'accord, Haïti importe presque tout. Nous importons même du poulet.
