Haiti - Petit-Goâve : Violent clashes between opposition groups
Thursday, June 13, 2019, the Seradòt Market of Petit-Goâve (National Road #2) was, during more than two hours, the scene of strong tensions and violent clashes with stones and bottles between young people of the Street Benoit and members of the radical opposition known as the "Popular and Democratic Sector", some of whom wore their machetes...

The National Road #2 at the Seradòt Market was littered with shards of bottles and carcasses of all kinds. Trucks and buses providing public transport from Port-au-Prince or the South were blocked in the city center. Those who went south eventually took the Ti Guinen inner road.

The youth of Street Benoit, opposed the advance of protesters from the radical opposition on the national #2 towards Seradot Market. Both sides fought hard and residents of the area launched unsuccessful calls for help to the police.

Although both groups are of the opposition, the Street Benoit camp would have liked to demonstrate its strength, hoping to be contacted either by the men in power or by the opposition members of Port-au-Prince in order to initiate "lucrative" negotiations. In the opinion of some observers, the young people of Street Benoit have pretended, by strategy, to challenge the legitimacy of Pierre Augustin, James Desrosiers, Bony James, leaders of the local branch of the radical opposition.

For Pierre Augustin, spokesman for the radical opposition known as the "Popular and Democratic Sector", the young people of Street Benoit initially pretended to be members of the opposition, but later they would have changed their position and would work now for the team in place and would have in the late afternoon received money from the Government...

Augustin, moreover, acknowledged that the youth of Street Benoit had managed to prevent the protesters of the popular sector from reaching their destination. At least two people were injured during the clashes and transported to the hospital.

Obviously the young opposition protesters of Petit-Goâve are divided and it is the money, this old demon, who seems to be responsible.
