Gonaives Marketplace Burned To The Ground Over The Weekend

Over the weekend, news broke out that the municipal market in Gonaives Haiti place was burned to the ground. President Michel Martelly went to Gonaives yesterday, Sunday, and deplores this act of violence.

Gonaives Haiti Welcome Sign

Is this an act of vandalism?

Will they catch those who did it... and then what?

Why would somebody burn down the market place?

There is something that we need to fix in Haiti and we need to do it right away...

We keep talking about rebuilding Haiti, we think making Haiti hurricane-proof and earthquake-resistant will fix everything but...

Will Haiti every be FIRE-PROOF and resistant to the army of Haitians among us who are armed and ready with matches, gasoline, and the desire to destroy?

To intentionally or maliciously set fire to a structure is a crime, it's called ARSON... What is the penalty for ARSON in Haiti?

We have a bunch of people who think they have the right to destroy PRIVATE and PUBLIC property at will. In most cases they have nothing to loose, except their freedom, and they seem to know already that nothing will happen.

How do you control people who have NOTHING to loose?

Perhaps the Haitian government should invest in a big prison in Ile de la Gonave, Ile A Vache, or La Tortue somewhere!


Don't we need people to create license plates and stuff?

If these people go unpunished, what's the point of rebuilding Haiti?

Before we can build OR rebuild, we have to take steps to prevent destruction... Sadly, many of us are expert destroyers...


What do we do about these bad apples? They are ruining the country for every good citizen out there!

Are there already laws in the books? How do we enforce them? Isn't it time?

Hello Eddy,

Thanks for your response.

Since you know Micky, who does he represent in Haiti, the people or the elite, the people or the foreign governments?

Are you one of the elite, of the army, of the Duvalierist camp?

Nou gen on nasyon kote moun pa respekte pyes vale tankou:
moral, istorik, santimantal e latriye.

that is one of the reason haiti will never go anywhere.I'm from the country side here I'am in u.s. if I did not have the possibility to move to the big city could I be here today?
