On the eve of The 2010 Haiti Earthquake’s Anniversary Haiti is in another uproar. Haitian citizens can be found in the streets protesting what they see as injustice and a breach of their constitutional rights. For a protracted period of time President Martelly and his government have been in discussions with The Haitian Opposition in regards to the hosting of elections and the parameters.
In the streets can be found both Martelly and Opposition supporters charging each party they represent with the responsibility of the failure of the electoral process. The crowds are estimated to be 1 500 in number. The Police force can be seen using water canon to disperse crowds and fires are set and people chant their descent.
Today’s protest (one of many) showcases the need for the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to be more involved in Haiti’s development. We believe that this is the time for the Caribbean Region to unify. Peace and Co-operation should be our major goals and we hope that at some point they are realized.
