Look at the FEAR in the eyes of this Haitian woman during a Street Protest in Haiti

They say a picture is worth a thousand words... Look at the FEAR in the eyes of this poor Haitian woman during a street protest, captured by the lens of a photographer for Le Nouvelliste during the October 17 2018 street protests.

For those of you who are not used to the reality of Haiti, this obviously poor Haitian woman tucked herself under a 'bak machan', a table like wooden structure used by street vendors in Haiti. She is clearly afraid of something.

She fears for her life!

Read what Haitians on social media though when whey saw this picture:

Alain Dorsainvil: Foto sa fè kè m dechire... Se te ka manman m ki nan pozisyon sa. Malgre tout risk, pwodyab li pran lari kan menm pou chèche lavi (This has made my heart tremble ... My mom could have been in that position. Despite all the risks, poor soul, she out in the streets trying to make ends meet)

Béa Pier Béo L: Podiab mizè nan kòl epi yap teworizel. (Poor thing, she is already in her misery and they are terrorizing her on top of it)

Genise Azor: On est fatigué... on en a assez... (We're tired... We've had enough!)

Dayala Jeanbaptiste: Gade yon peur nan yeux li c'est triste (Look at the fear in her eyes, this is sad!)
