I don't know if you noticed this but every act carried out by this group of armed young men and women is political.

G9 an fanmi e alye manyen yonn manyen tout, which translates to English G-9 family and allies, you touch one of us you will deal with all of us, I've been trying very hard to detach themselves from the idea that they a gang. They are trying to align themselves more and more as a paramilitary group, if I may use that word.

Jimmy often calls G9 an armed group. Isn't that what paramilitary is?

They have picked up the cause fight for justice for the slain Haitian president jovenel Moise.

Jimmy Cherisier often says: The weapons in my hand, in our hands, are to harm the people in our neighborhoods. They are there to protect them, to prevent them from being kidnapped, to prevent them from being robbed.

Journalist in the Haitian media admit many times that the kidnappings and the criminal activities happening in Haiti are not happening in on territories that G9 controls.

So what does all that mean?

There has been many names for people who stand for what they believe in Haiti: Cacos, Zenglens, Bandits.

In a recent interview, Jimmy Cherisier said Charlemagne Peralte was a called bandit, Jean-Jacques dessalines was called a bandit in his time.

What is it trying to say?

What are we not understanding?
