Big Confusion in Haiti Manifestation of 6 Dec 2013

Have you read the news about the big Manifestation that was scheduled 6 Dec 2013? The Haitian news media is reporting a state of confusion that took place... The number of protesters was so little that Depute Arnel Belizaire suggested they make another round inside the "Quartier Populaires," to gather more people before heading back to Petion Ville...

I don't now if you will agree me with or not BUT... Hmmm... The Haitian news media reported this in a "BY THE WAY" kind of way...

It was as if this was not newsworthy!

Anyway... LOL... The protest started with a only a couple of hundred people..."quelques centaine de personnes" instead of "des milliers" that you often hear about... The associated press said it peaked at about 2,000 but thinned out during the march uphill to the Dominican Embassy...

By the time the protest reached Petionville there was barely anyone there...

Read this from Le Nouvelliste

"After discussions and still in a state of confusion, there is now a few dozen people who are trying to follow the road from Delmas to Petionville. The road is long for this group which shrinks in number as it moves towards Petionville.

If the organizers intended to provide support to Dominicans of Haitian descent in trouble in their own country, a white-colored coffin, with the name of President Martelly above, showed something else.

Sometimes they attack the governments, sometimes Dominicans.

Well... This concludes out report!!!!

What do you think about this?
