Protesters Demanding the Departure of Haitian President Michel Martelly – RFI


President Michel Martelly has resumed talks with the various political parties, but his most radical opponents refuse any further dialogue and are demanding his departure from power. Assad Volcy, a leader of the group “Pitit Dessalines” or “Children of Dessalines” says they’ve rejected an invitation for a meeting today stating that there will not be credible, honest and democratic elections in the country with Martelly still in power. It seems as if clean political direction is an impossibility in this country as they refuse the president to finish his term properly. They claim to be fighting corruption albeit with more corruption and are willing to leave the door open for a truly crooked political figure to lead us back into the red. Michel Martelly who was democratically elected in May of 2011 should be serving the duration of his term which ends Q1 2016. For more details, click the link below.

    The vicious cycle continues. Whether you have a PhD in democracy or the equivalent of a high school diplomat, expect similar results. Just be prepared to travel down contrasting paths to get there. The president always over stays his or potentially hers welcome. We all know how this movie ends-whether you are in Haiti, The USA or Mars, whenever we decide to colonize it.
