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?
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 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.
Senator Steven Benoit was not the only one who had a difficult day yesterday. Senator Moise Jean Charles was also wounded during their confrontation with the police as he was protesting the decision of the CEP not have an independent panel to investigate allegation of fraud during the past election. According to Moise this is a grave incident that took place yesterday. This was a quiet manifestation and the moment he was ready to speak to the crowd, Police opened fire. He also stated that the government is the one responsible for creating an atmosphere of panic in the country. They have a mission to fight. Stand up and fight
Here is a some video footing for the day of the Battle of Vertiere. It was marked by mass protest and manifestation against the CEP as the polulation was denouncing the country's preliminary presidential results.
An exit poll revealed a curious feature because a little over 6% of voters had said that they have voted for the government-backed candidate Jovenel Moise, placing him on the fourth. Surprisingly, when the result was out, he came to the top with 32.8 % of the votes. However, it is a fact that exit polls are not always accurate indicators.

Have you ever noticed that more than 90 percent of protests and manifestations in Haiti is about one thing, the complete removal of the current government. What you often hear during Haitian protests are "Vle Vle, Fo Lale" or "Rache Manyok-ou Bay Ter-a Blanch". This has been the history in Haiti.
Have they been successful with Vle Pa Vle, Fo Lale?
Very much so. So far, I have witnessed many of their wishes to be met. They have been able to get ride of some people in position of power. One thing I have not seen however is an improvement on the lives of the people who put so much efforts in forcing these changes. They burn tires, break car windows,

If anyone had hoped to spend a quiet day in Port-au-Prince on September 30, that was not the case. On this important date which marks the anniversary of a 1991 military coup that ousted former Haitian president Jean Bertrand Aristide, the country's Capital was anything but peaceful.
Large crowd of Lavalas supporters attempts to march from the church where Aristide led services when he was a Catholic priest to his house in Tabarre. However, well equiped riot police fired water cannons and tear gas to disperse the protest
