    The purpose of this thread is not to clutter the Haitian History/Research thread with current events.

    These Little Haiti businesses have a new landlord: a developer who wants them out

    Another reminder of why ownership in land and property is so important.

    What's even worse is that the city gov't seems to be covering for the RE developer.

    Though technically true, you can see that the local gov't has no interest in helping the Haitian community there.

    But we know why that is. As always. Money.

    UK charity Oxfam permanently banned from Haiti

    This is a little bit older (Jun 2018), but I definitely felt it should have been posted in here.
    (Anyone know of any consistent Haitian news sources, outside of the MiamiHerald, which has spotty coverage and a slant, and al-Jazeera?).
    This has been going on a lot longer than had been realised.
    Good. OxFam's oversight is pathetic, and their organization is deeply corrupt.
    Sexual abuse is hard to stop, but their exploitation is inexcusable, and I'd like to see each and every one of the accused tortured and executed before a Haitian court.

    Not too long ago there was a rise in cigarette prices and there were small riots about that too. Is there a supply issue or money issue causing these price hikes? Or is it something else?

    roughly translated

    "this message goes out all Haitian people.....stay out of the "hot" zones.....don't want body to get hurt..........for what's about to go down on Monday. and to the little cops.this message is for y'all too...y'all don't have enough guns...."
    stopped translating after that because it seems fishy.

    seems like a fake threat from a random person who speaks kreyol....propaganda of some sort though I don't quite know the intent.

    sounds about right. oligarch families in caribbean run everything and have the most to lose when china comes in and builds infrastructure.

    energy mafia indeed.......there's no constant reliable grid in Haiti..........people with money have generators and private grid because the other shyt is unreliable.

    I wouldn't be mad at oligarches running the energy market IF they provided sustainable, reliable energy. As of now, they're just mediocre on a very good day.
