Since September 11, 2001 where several terrorist attacks were launched by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda upon the United States in New York City and Washington, D.C., the policy of the United States has changed as to what constitutes a threat to them. Having a huge crowd of people gathering in front of their embassy in protest, can be categorized as such a threat.

Lawyers in Haiti have had enough! Following the arrest of their fellow, Andre Michel, a move many deem as unlawful, Haiti's robed workforce descended upon the streets like a flock of avenging angels to protest his arrest and also to demand the revocation of the Government Commissioner of Port-au-Prince, Francisco René. And they may have been quite right to, if reports as to the suspected nature of the arrest, severely unrepresented by the official arrest record, are to be believed.
For the Commissioner's part, his action of arresting Michel for what is described as a minor traffic infraction was motivated by the current Administration's wish to censor the lawyer who has been very active in cases filed against the government. As such, some of the protesters, unnamed, vocally and harshly criticized the Executive Body and the Minister of Justice, Jean Renel Sanon.
Lack of Basic Services Drives Violent Protests
In Haiti violent protests are a way of life. Haiti, a small island, is home to a population of only 10 million, indicating just how desperate Haitians are to get basic services. Violent protests happen many times in small and larger villages across Haiti.
Typically, protestors set tire-fires in streets, obstruct traffic with rocks, toppled-over cars, and garbage cans, and destroy property. Regrettably, such protests regularly come under fire from three categories of people.
The government of Haiti is usually not in position to help the population. It takes acts of desperation by Haitians to get the Government to pave a road, supply electricity, or distribute food to them.
The situation in the City of Jeremie has not improved. In fact, it has gotten worst.
We just learned today (November 30, 2012) that new clashes between security forces and protesters in Jeremie have left one confirmed dead and several people wounded.
A 33 year old man, Wilder Beloved, was killed by an agent of the Motorized Intervention Brigade (BIM). The body of the victim was brought to the home of the government commissioner of Jeremie by the protesting crowd and left there after protesters ransacked the home.
The new force came in town to establish order in the city after several days of protests by the population. For the past three days, the population of Jeremie has been protesting, demanding the resumption of road construction work joining Cayes - Jeremie by OAS Company.
The population of the city of Jeremie is out on the streets this Wednesday, November 28, 2012. They are setting Barricades in the streets, blocking traffics and setting tires on fire.
They are protesting against the abandonment of the construction work by the construction company OAS. The road work joining the cities of Cayes and Jérémie has been stopped for several months.
The protest started yesterday. Schools and majorities of business are close. Some arrests have been made. Many people are injured with. The local police has not been able to manage the crowd so far.
Haiti has historically been besieged by violent upheavals against its governing systems. Securing independence from its status as a slave possession in 1801, ex-slave Toussaint Louverture led the Haitian Revolution, making a conquest of Haiti, and naming himself Governor-General.
Jean-Jacques Dessalines succeeded Louverture in 1804, ruling until his assassination in 1806. Haiti then became a black-dominated northern region and mulatto elite-governed southern region. In 1915, the U.S. began occupying Haiti as a result of another conflict between mulatto elites and blacks. The U.S., concerned about its business interests, stayed until 1934.
When U.S. occupation ended, coup d'etats and provisional presidencies marked the period 1934-1971, until dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier came to office. By 1986, mass uprisings against Duvalier forced him into exile. Henri Namphy, lieutenant general in the Haitian Army, became president after Duvalier's exit.
On Monday, November 13, 2012 Haitian students continued their demonstration over the death of one of their owns. This was the third day of non stop protest, where students are demanding justice for the death of Damael d'Haiti, a student shot and killed by a police officer over the weekend at the School of Law and Social Sciences in Port-au-Prince.
