Protest - Manifestation
On Friday, close to 100 former Haiti disbanded military and supporters took to the street of Port-au-Prince in a show of force. Many were in uniform and armed with guns and pistols. As a group of these former soldiers in a pick up truck passed by a group of anti-government protest, some protesters threw rocks at them, causing some soldiers to fire.
No casualties among the anti-government demonstrators have been reported so far; however, former army captain Neroce Ciceron, was captured by the protesters, assaulted repeatedly with rocks until his death.

It is normal that people do not want to associate themselves with a loosing team. This is probably what explains the cancellation of a protest organized by PHTL and the supporters of Jovenel Moise on January 28 in St Mark. A protest march organized by PHTK supporters was programmed to begin at 10:00AM on January 28 at Freedom boulevard in St Mark; however, it was cancelled due to lack of participation. Franky Christmas who is the regional Coordinator of PHTK was unable to explain why supporters did not show up. He promised that the mobilization will continue in the future.

Have you ever noticed that the majority of protests in Haiti often starts one way. Someone will draw in the middle of the street the Voodoo Symbol in Haitian language called Damballah-Wedo, then a campfire will be set right in the middle of the sign where people participate in song turning around the fire. I am trying to understand the meaning of all that. Anyone with some knowledge, please share with us. In Haitian Voodoo, Damballah-Wedo is viewed as a loving father to the world and associated with creation. However, in many protests in Haiti, we find lots of destruction. How do you explain that?
Fanmi lavalas as well as the group G8 are preparing for more disturbances in Haiti for the coming days. Fanmi lavalas announced two days of protest for today (12/3/15) and Saturday in the objective to continue to demand that the CEP respect the votes of the population. They intend to join their efforts with the G8 who also announced two days of protest for today and Saturday as well. In addition to the two day protest, the group G8 has also announced a strike for Monday, December 7. They are demanding the departure of the government of Michel Martely.

At least two policemen have been injured after clashes erupted between opposition supporters and police forces during a protest against presidential election results in Port-au-Prince. It was reported that the CIMO officer received the bullet in the belly. He was taking to a truck, head wrapped and later observed getting out of the car on his own. The protest yesterday was erupted following the final results of the first round of the presidential elections that were released on Monday by the CEP. The CEP has announced that Jovenel Moise and Jude Celestin had come out as the two top winners of the first round of the presidential election.
The protests of Haitians against the published election result are still continuing, protest against the ruling party has almost become a daily occurrence. In the midst of controversy, the Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) has confirmed that government backed candidate Jovenel Moise will face Jude Celestin in the final runoff on December 27th. The number that puts ruling party's candidate Jovenel Moïse much ahead of his other contenders has raised suspicions of massive frauds.
Former senator Moise Jean-Charles, who came third with 14.2% votes, has claimed that his supporters have found numerous partially burnt ballots marked with his name and many ballots favoring his support went missing. An exit poll on October 25th revealed that a little over 6% of the sample voters had said that they have voted in favor of Jovenel Moise, and that estimate placed him fourth on the winning rank list. Surprisingly, when the result was out, he came to the top with a total 32.8 % (511,992) votes defeating Celestine's 25.2% (394,390) votes.
The pressure on the CEP was intensified yesterday (Friday, November 21, 2015) as thousands of Haitians continue to demand that last month's presidential election be annulled. The protest that started peacefully turned violent after they were attacked by government supporters who threw rocks, blocks and bottles. The clash resulted in one death, two cars burned to the ground, several injuries and lost of business merchandises. One of the major injuries involves a Haitian protester who was hit in the head with a machete. The report indicated that the cars were burned around Delmas 95. In addition, several street merchants lost their inventories as people were running for cover.
