The march announced by the opposition, to commemorate the assassination of Jean Jacques Dessalines and demand the departure of Jovenel Moise, did not reach its destination. CIMO agents used tear gas to disperse several thousand demonstrators at Delmas 60 when they wanted to go to Petion-Ville.
Jovenel Moïse had his first political and social test on Tuesday. A few days after Parliament ratified the budget law 2017-2018, a demonstration drew tens of thousands of participants from various sectors of national life (trade unions, popular organizations, students, taxi-motorcycle drivers, political groupings, etc.). The demonstration, which had several gathering points, began peacefully and in a carnival atmosphere on the road to Delmas. Demonstrators took the opportunity to build barricades of burning tires along this busy thoroughfare. They also attacked posters of Jovenel Moses.
Everything took place in the absence of the CIMO agents who usually ensure security in these circumstances. The security forces were seen at around 13:00, at the intersection of Delmas 75 and the Delmas road. A handful of agents, about ten, used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd that had grown over the hours.
After the intervention of the PNH, Delmas was on the verge of being comparable to a zone at war. The protestors have vandalized everything in their path. They broke vehicle windscreens, threw stones at shops in the area, set fire to vehicles, dragged beams, stones and carcasses from any object on the road. HNP officers dispatched to the scene had every difficulty in restoring order. People were running in every direction. The situation, which began in Delmas, has become widespread in the downtown area of Port-au-Prince. Barricades of inflamed tires have been erected at Nazon, Lalue, Martin Luther King Avenue, Turgeau, Oswald Durand Street, Magloire Ambroise Avenue, Pave Street, High Street, etc. Vehicles were set on fire at Turgeau, Christophe Avenue, Lamartinière Avenue (Bois-Verna), and so on.
The United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti, launched since 2004, is approaching the end of a hare pitch towards the end of October 15. The Brazilian Army which runs the military component of MINUSTAH officially ended its military operations in the country on Thursday, 31 August.
A ceremony, parades, military honors, the Brazilian battalion, entrenched in their base at Tabarre, did everything to mark their departure. After a considerable withdrawal of its military contingent from the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTHA), Brazil, the largest contributor of troops with 40% of the troops of the peacekeepers, finally packed up.
The ceremony was attended by parliamentarians, members of the Brazilian Armed Forces High Command, the Brazilian Minister of Defense and the representative of the UN Secretary-General in Haiti, Sandra Honore, and other dignitaries. After 13 years, the mission ends. No more soldiers will be seen in the streets and corners of the country after the deadline of 15 October 2017 set by the UN Security Council. It will be replaced by a new one: the United Nations Mission in Support of Justice in Haiti (UNMIT).
No more suspense. We know now who succeeds Raquel Pélissier, Miss Haiti 2016 and current First dauphine of Miss Universe. During the Miss Haiti 2017 final held on Saturday, September 2nd at the Marriott Hotel, Chéry Cassandra won the crown of Miss Haiti. The new Miss Haiti, in a short speech, thanked Providence, the contest organizers, her ex-competitors and her family for the experience she had with them during this beauty contest.
Traditionally, "Lakou Souvenance" organizes its festivities during the Easter period. During this event, a litany of choreographic and cult performances are performed in relation to certain voodoo rituals.
These activities, which stretch over several days, drain thousands of Haitian visitors and some curious foreigners.
"Lakou Souvenance" was founded in 1815 by Jean-Baptiste Bois, affectively called "Papa Bois". At his death, Archelus Bois, his son, took over. Fedelien is the third servant of Lakou. He served this function throughout the American occupation. After its transition, space was closed because of the "Rejected Campaign" initiated by the Catholic Church to persecute voodoo. In 1940, Bien-Aimé Fils, ati Bien-Aimé, took the reins of the lakou. After 50 years of service, in 1990, at the age of 94, he crossed. And since then, it is his son Jean Georges Bien-Aimé who takes care of this ancestral heritage.
Come from everywhere as usual, hundreds of pilgrims, in search of deliverance, visited Calvaire Miracle in Ganthier on Good Friday, the last Friday of Lent.
What the pilgrims want is deliverance. They think they find it at Calvaire Miracle. It was this belief that prompted adults, young people and even children to accept climbing the dreadful Calvary every year on Good Friday in order to be closer to the crucified man imploring his mercy to get out of their suffering. With a rosary, "tchatcha", candle in hand and blue and white blue cords for the most part, passed around the neck or the waist, these pilgrims of all social categories merged under a sun of lead throughout the day of Friday . Everyone has his problem. Some came for visa, others for marriage, protection to name but a few.
