The opposition is giving the people of Haiti no time to breath with non-stop and violent street protests in an attempt to force President Jovenel to resign.

The Haitian economic system mostly consist of an informal sector where most people earn their living daily in the streets buying and selling good and services to each other.

A day that a "ti machann" (street vendor) cannot go out there to "bwase lari a" (to hustle the streets) is a day without money to pay the necessities back at home.

The biggest informal sector in Haiti is in downtown Port-au-Prince. Unidentified individuals started shooting Monday, Wednesday, October 2nd, a Haitian radio station reported, trying to prevent merchants from conducting business.

But who cares about the little people? It's all about dirty politics in Haiti.

"Mobilizasyon manch long! Fok Jovenel ale!" (non stop protests, Jovenel has to go), one opposition leader said.

Protests begin again Friday until further notice, or perhaps we should say, until Jovenel Moise ale!
