L’opposition veut empêcher Moïse d’aller à Vertières :

Jeudi à quelques jours de la commémoration du 216ème anniversaire de la bataille de Vertières, (lundi 18 novembre) l’opposition radicale a annoncé la reprise de la mobilisation anti-gouvernementale. Me André Michel assure que Jovenel Moïse ne pourra pas fouler la place des héros, à Vertières. Un geste plus médiatique et symbolique que contraignant pour le Chef de l’État, qui déjà l’année passée avait commémoré cet anniversaire et fait son discours à la Nation sans se rendre à Vertières https://www.haitilibre.com/article-26154-haiti-vertieres-215e-message-a-la-nation-du-president-jovenel-moise.html

Camion contre taxi-moto, 3 morts :

Vendredi après-midi à Titans, une localité de la 4ème section communale de Petite-Rivière de Nippes, un camion immatriculé TM 119 34 a heurté violemment un taxi-moto causant la mort du conducteur et de ses deux passagers.

Vers une grève à l’HUEH… :

Lebien Joseph, Président du Syndicat des Travailleurs de la Santé de l’Hôpital de l’Université d’État d’Haïti (HUEH) met en garde la Ministre de la Santé Marie Greta Roy Clément sur les risque d’une grève à l’HUEH si rien n’est fait pour améliorer les conditions de travail des employés ainsi que l’approvisionnement d’intrants.

Démenti de l’administration des douanes :

L’Administration Générale des Douanes (AGD) dément les rumeurs circulants sur les réseaux sociaux concernant le contenu d’un convoi de containers qui a franchi la douane de Malpasse en direction de la Capitale. L’AGD affirme que tout ces containers qui transportaient seulement des matières premières nécessaires à la production de condiments alimentaires, ont rempli toutes les formalités douanières et appartiennent à des entreprises haïtiennes clairement identifiées.

Le Costa Rica inquiet de la crise en Haïti :

Vendredi dans un communiqué, le Ministère des Affaires Étrangères du Costa Rica a exprimé officiellement sa préoccupation face à la violence en Haïti et a ajouté sa voix aux appels au dialogue entre les parties comme moyen de garantir la Paix sociale et la compréhension entre les haïtiens « Le Costa Rica se joint aux appels pour ne pas encourager les actions qui aggravent la situation, mais plutôt pour rechercher la voie du dialogue qui permettra de surmonter la crise sociale, économique et politique dans ce pays […] » indique le texte officiel.

Benin Activist Brings Health Kits to Haiti’s Poor | Voice of America

Published

By

French Beninese writer and activist Kemi Seba is in Haiti this weekend on a humanitarian mission.

Seba traveled to the Caribbean nation to show support for the PetroChallenger anti-corruption movement and for the residents of the poorest slums of the capital.

VOA Creole spoke with the activist as he was distributing sanitary kits in Port-au-Prince.

“We wanted to show that we are capable and that we don’t have to wait for the government to act, we can take action ourselves to show our support,” Seba said.

“Although we have meager resources we only exist when we can share what we have with others in the context of this dimension, this dynamic,” he added. “We have medical staff with us, midwives, specialists who are not only distributing the kits but also doing free consultations. They are volunteers who gave their time to make this happen.”

The sanitary kits contained items such as soap, toothpaste and medicine. Seba said his NGO bought the medicine, which it distributed with the help of local doctors who accompanied them. While the kits don’t address everyone’s needs, he said they do contain basic items that can help with some of the people’s most urgent needs.

“We wanted to do this because Haiti is a source of black pride worldwide, and because Haiti faces an extremely difficult situation now because of this crisis, which affects the social and economic sectors of the country,” Seba said. “Many are unable to purchase medicine because they have not been paid for five months.”

Haiti’s health sector has suffered during the anti-corruption and anti-government protests that intensified in February of this year. The country’s health sector took to the streets in October, joining anti-corruption protesters to decry the deplorable conditions such as lack of water, electricity and sanitation, which has jeopardized health care workers’ ability to care for the sick.

“The crisis has had a devastating impact on us,” Dr. Jessy Adrien, executive director of the government university hospital, told VOA Creole in October. “Patients are unable to reach us and neither are medical staff due to the barricades in the streets.”

Adrien said the crisis has also created a human resource shortage and a dangerous sanitary situation.

“For over three or four weeks, there has been no trash collection and this has created a dangerous, deadly sanitary condition, whereby germs and bacteria are multiplying. For hygienic reasons we must be able to dispose of these biohazards efficiently,” she said.

During a September 20 protest, a young doctor working at a Port-au-Prince hospital told VOA: “Sometimes we’re unable to get to the hospital due to the fuel shortage. … A child died recently at our hospital due to this fuel shortage. People can’t live like this.”

The protests that have swept Haiti were sparked by a fuel price increase in July 2018. They have intensified and swept the nation since then, with thousands taking to the streets on a weekly basis to demand President Jovenel Moise step down. Protesters accuse him of being corrupt and being incapable of resolving the country’s problems.

President Moise denies the corruption allegations and in recent weeks has taken steps to address the protesters’ concerns, such as naming new Cabinet ministers, visiting local businesses, and speaking directly to the people on traditional and social media. He has also called for a national dialogue to discuss ways to resolve the political impasse, but the opposition has repeatedly rejected the offer.

Activist Seba told VOA he hopes his effort will spark future progress.

“We hope this will not be a just drop in the bucket, but rather the beginning of a process to address this issue with sister institutions and medical partnerships who are already working here. I want to especially thank the medical staff who helped us bring this mission to fruition today,” he said.

The local residents, who did not wish to be photographed, expressed gratitude and thanks to Seba and his team for taking the time to visit them and address some of their most urgent needs.

Jacquelin Belizaire and Matiado Vilme in Port-au-Prince contributed to this report.

Scanners and Spot Checks at Schools Under Consideration in Barbados After Student Is Fatally Stabbed

Published

By

Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Wednesday November 13, 2019 – The Ministry of Education in Barbados is looking at introducing hand held scanners and random spot checks at a secondary school where a 16-year-old student was stabbed to death by a 15-year-old on the compound last week. And other schools could also be in line for those measures.

The disclosure was made by Minister of Education
Santia Bradshaw during a press conference at the Erdiston Teachers’ Training
College where teachers from the Frederick Smith Secondary School received
counselling throughout the day.

Some of the students are scheduled to return to
the school, on the country’s West Coast, from tomorrow. Others return the
following day, and the remainder next Monday.

“One of the concerns that have been
expressed [by teachers] is a major challenge in relation to the school plants
in terms of security issues. We have looked at not metal detectors in the
strict sense of the word in terms of framed metal detectors, but we are
exploring the hand detectors as an option particularly for the return to school
on Thursday,” Minister Bradshaw said.

“We want to ensure that the plant is safe at this
stage. While this tragedy has happened, I can give no assurances to the country
that students may not have weapons on them next week. Therefore, it is
important persons who have to work in the environment as well as students who
are not engaged in such activities in terms of possession of weapons, feel
comfortable and their parents must feel comfortable coming back to the
Frederick Smith School.”

The Education Minister further indicated that the
hand held scanners could be introduced at other schools which have been
experiencing challenges with deviant behaviour.

She said the Boards of Management as well as the
principals of these schools were reviewing the issue to determine if the
scanners would be required. However, Bradshaw cautioned that it was not a case
of “one fit for all”.

 “…There
are some schools that have greater challenges than others and as a
precautionary measure, I think that time has now come where we will have to
consider spot checks and random searches as well as ensuring that at least the
points of entry are properly secured to make sure that the limit – not that we
can in any way ever prevent these types of incidents from happening because as
we discussed with the police today, anything can become a weapon.

“There is nothing we can do to completely
eliminate the possibility of any violent act taking place but there are some
precautions that we can take across the system to try to reduce the number of
incidences like [the one at Frederick Smith],” she said.

She added that the Ministry owed it “to all
concerned” to take the necessary steps to weed out deviant behaviour.

And she said the Royal Barbados Police Force
would be working with the Ministry to address the issues affecting not just
Frederick Smith Secondary but several other schools in relation to frequent
patrols, possession of weapons by students and a general police presence.

Bradshaw said this would send “the very strong
message” that violence would not be tolerated in any form at educational
institutions.

She also warned parents that their failure to
work with the Ministry and schools was not in the best interest of their
children, and stressed that cooperation from all stakeholders was needed to
arrest violence.

“Parents also must see themselves as equal
stakeholders in this exercise. We need to have a situation in this country
where there is greater vigilance of our students. We have to ensure that we
have greater participation in the Parent/Teacher Associations and when the
principals and others call parents to find out what is happening with students,
I am asking you as parents to ensure that you attend the institution to find
out what is going on to be able to find solutions to any problems the students
may be encountering,” the Minister implored.

Bradshaw said it was the goal of the Ministry of Education to “do all within our power to ensure that an incident of this nature does not recur again in the history of this country”.
