That Certain Spice of Violence Martelly Adds to Haiti's Opposition

Politics

Maxime

If the 'peyi lok' movement of the 2011 presidential elections appear similar to the 'peyi lok' movement of today's anti-President Jovenel Moise and fuel shortage demonstrations it is because of that little bit of spice that the Michel Martelly sect of the Tet Kale machine adds.

As it was reported earlier, former President Michel Martelly is adding to the opposition movement against Jovenel Moise. His gripe would be President Moise's move to remove Martelly's pawns from Haiti's more lucrative ministries and government agencies. Martelly has gone from having sycophants in 2/3s of the official ministerial positions down to none.

Martelly Wants Jovenel Back in Line

If Jovenel Moise were to remove Fritz William Michel as his designated prime minister and place, for example, Senator Joseph Lambert (PHTK - Sud'Est) in the seat, the level of violence of the 'peyi lok' movement would significantly decrease, in terms of violence.

The 'peyi lok' would instead look like the 'greve' (strikes) the opposition held while Martelly was in office. These strikes were effective. Port-au-Prince and a good number of provincial towns were paralyzed. They would like the movements of tens of thousands which took to the streets last summer in protest.

When Martelly would decide that he has his people in position and his interests in collecting state funds are secure, then would we see a more passionate response by the Haitian National Police to stop the protests and sniper fire from terrorist street gangs and the rumored foreign mercenaries.

A Bit of Tea 🐸 🍵

A source within the Jovenel Moise National Palace has given The Haiti Sentinel a bit of information. Kiko Saint Remy, brother to former First Lady Sophia Martelly, has a company, currently with a government contract, for clean up after demonstrations, especially those of the levels seen in Haiti today.

This should explain how Haiti manages, with limited police and dysfunctional waste management, to able to get things back virtually functional quite rapidly after massive movements - while parts of Port-au-Prince still contain rubble from the 2010 earthquake. But it also should explain how Haiti is able to descend into such dissarray and violence, involving trash bins and trash in particular.

Our people are not new to protesting, they are true to protesting. We are quite deliberate when we are motivated to get our point across. And dumping over trash bins in our own neighborhoods is not part of our modus operandi but the little bit of spice added by the paid hands of Michel Martelly.
