Haiti - Social : General strike, a fiasco...
On Monday, the call for a general strike, launched by several socio-political organizations https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-25098-haiti-flash-general-strike-government-fears-violence.html in particular: the National Union of Haitian Normalians (UNNOH), the M22, "Anbake pou chanje", the "Rasin kan pèp la" party, the Collective of progressive Haitian student organizations was little followed at the level of the metropolitan region, while that the forces of the order were visible in several strategic points of the capital.

Car traffic was fluid in the early hours, on several axes of the metropolitan area. Commercial enterprises, including the informal sector, and banks functioned normally after a timid start, while the transport sector was only affected early in the morning in some parts of the capital. Subsequently, public transport vehicles circulated without constraints in the various arteries of Port-au-Prince, Delmas, Carrefour, Pétion-ville and Tabarre. In addition, the strike watchword has not been respected in many provincial cities.

Josué Mérilien Coordinator of UNNOH denounced Monday an attempt by the Government, to have wanted to stop the strike, indicating that a campaign of information on social networks led to believe that the strike was canceled. Moreover, he accuses, without naming them, trade unionists of having received money from the power in place, to break the mobilization.

For its part M22 (Movement of January 22) believes that the partial success of the strike is explained by the lack of support of many unions of drivers.
