Aristide And The Endless Revolution

Today marks the 22nd Anniversary of the September 1991 military coup d'etat against Jean Bertrand Aristide, who was the president of Haiti during that time. The above documentary "Aristide And The Enless Revolution" show what happened during those times.

Today Amos was taking someone downtown for medical tests and there were traffic jams in the downtown area caused by a group of protesters from MOPOD (Mouvement Patriotique de l'Opposition Democratique and Lavalas. The Haitian police broke up the protest with tear gas near the National Palace. Schools reopen tomorrow. Pray for peace on the streets.

Laurent Lamothe Speaks Before U.N. General Assembly - September 26, 2013

Laurent Lamothe, the Prime Minister of Haiti spoke before the U.N. General Assembly on September 26, 2013. The Haitian Government is trying to rebuild the country and to work towards developing the country, especially through tourism. I believe they are trying to do their best for the country. Pray that Haiti can one day not be known as a "3rd world nation".
