NOTE DE PRESSE SUR LE DON DES 500 TONNES METRIQUES DE PISTACHES DE LA USDA

Mercredi 13 avril 2016 La Plateforme haïtienne de Plaidoyer pour un Développement Alternatif (PAPDA) tient à dénoncer le plan annoncé par le Ministère de l’Agriculture des États-Unis d’Amérique de déverser 500 tonnes métriques de pistaches avant la fin de l’année 2016 sous le prétexte de soulager la faim et la malnutrition des enfants en Haïti. Selon les déclarations de ce Ministère ces pistaches seront distribuées à 140.000 enfants haïtiens scolarisés dans le pays. Il est important que le public haïtien sache que ce don ne provient pas d’une quelconque générosité. Les fermiers américains produisent annuellement plus de 4 millions de tonnes métriques de pistaches. Le marché est saturé et le secteur se retrouve dans une situation de surproduction, même les infrastructures de stockage sont débordés. Il faut bien trouver un endroit pour déverser ce surplus. En plus les producteurs de […]

Martelly’s Presidential Candidate Seized Land from Peasants

Jovenel Moïse, the alleged presidential frontrunner in Haiti’s fraud-filled elections, is widely known as “the Banana Man” for his work with an exporter called Agritrans before he joined the race. Interviews with peasants living in the area where Agritrans is located reveal that the Banana Man didn’t have the positive impact that he claims. Many of these peasants have been kicked off the land by Agritrans and lost their livelihoods. Some remain homeless and without the jobs that Agritrans promised it would create. Many fear that if Moïse becomes president, the situation for peasants will get even worse. Part of the article is below. Click HERE for the full text.

The UN estimates that about $10 billion was pledged, and about […]

Une crise à la frontière et ailleurs en Haïti

Presque personne ne parle des camps toujours en place depuis le seisme du janvier 2010 en Haïti. Maintenant, il ya plus de camps de croissance à la frontière entre Haïti et la République Dominicaine. Le choléra fait rage dans ces camps et ça n’est pas le seul problème qu’ils rencontrent. Une partie de l’article est ci-dessous. Cliquez ICI pour le texte complet. Humanitaire : La situation du pays s’est davantage détériorée en 2015 Karenine Francesca Theosmy, Le Nouvelliste 20 novembre 2015 Alors que depuis l’année dernière, la plupart des camps étaient fermés, surtout ceux qui se trouvaient sur les places publiques, le problème humanitaire semble entier.

Pour l’instant, les responsables humanitaires refusent de donner à la situation le nom de crise. « Plus ou moins à partir de […]
