Haiti - Senator Joseph Lambert will NOT go to Vertières on 18 November. Find out why
Haitian Senator Joseph Lambert announced he will not attend the 18 November ceremony at Vertières in Cap Haitien this year because of what Moise Jean Charles did.
"It really hurts me to see the people of the North (les gents du Nord) denigrate the statue of our Heroes of independence," Senate president Joseph Lambert said. "I used to hear the people of the North talk about the ideals of Christophe but today they have soiled that ideal."
"I wanted to go celebrate Vertières on 18 November but I don't have the courage to see the outrage they have done to this monument at Vertières," Senator Lambert said.
"When a man goes to Vertières and you lower the flag on the faces of these heroes who gave us our independence and allow us not to be talking about the first black republic in the world. To be talking about Christophe, to be talking about the Citadelle, the people of the North should be ashamed after that happened."
By what happened, he is talking about Moise Jean Charles and his supporters who went to Heroes of independence monument Vertières Saturday, lowered the Haitian flag and raised their own blue and red flag.

Celebrating the Bataille Of Vertiere is not a political event it is national; therefore, it for all Haitians to partake and opposition party should no interfere.
It is imperative that the police provide security for all Haitians.
The opposition view point is misdirecting and should reconsider theit
