Haitian Protests Cause Speculation — Yesterday’s (Nov. 18) commemoration of the Battle of Vertières included massive protests and a government reaction that has left at least six dead in Haiti.
The demonstrators’ motive is reportedly massive government corruption, namely the squandering of billions from socialist Venezuela’s discounted PetroCaribe oil program.
Also not being widely reported are allegations that a UN security team was involved in a massacre.
The Battle of Vertières on Nov. 18, 1803 was a victory of Haitians over the French and established the nation’s independence.
