Haiti - FLASH : Message of Odette Fombrun (102 years), to the gravediggers of the Motherland
In her last post dated November 19, 2019, entitled "THE ARMED GANGS, the major problem to be solved" Mrs. Fombrun writes :
"Since July 6/7, 4 senators DESTROY and give the street the tone of destruction. Paid by whom ? For whose benefit ? In front of the cameras, they ransacked the Senate. https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-28727-haiti-flash-the-senate-stormed-and-ransacked-by-armed-militants-of-the-opposition.html
They reinforce the campaign for the departure of the President. They multiply the demonstrations which have the disastrous effects : the closing of the schools, the destruction of the economy, the increase of the MISERE. Instead of asking to stop this work of destruction and obscurantism preventing pupils and students from going to school, and the emergency services from functioning, opposition parties and the private sector are attacking only to the President of the Republic as the only person responsible for this national bankruptcy.
In fact, the barricades are a way of stopping the activities of course, but especially of ransoming a desperate population. Currently, large barricades divide the country into gang-managed areas, with no exchange or communication. Mgr Beauvoir begged to open humanitarian corridors to let the help available, as well as the COSPE and many other groups concerned with education plead the cause of students, schoolchildren and teachers.
WE MUST STOP THIS DESTRUCTION.
The President has the duty to ask FRIENDS COUNTRIES to assist him in the training of our MILITARY to effectively and definitively solve the problem of GANGS."
This post is a follow-up to the one she published four days earlier called "Stop the gravediggers of the Motherland" where our 102-year-old activist wrote :
"Stop political leaders and so-called leaders whose actions lead the country to ruin by the systematic strangulation of life and the national economy. The deaf ear on both sides continues to encourage destructive coups as the suffering people cry out their anger and call for a constructive and inclusive dialogue for a real change of system based on a sense of good citizenship. honesty and efficiency in the management of the State.
Today Misery and armed gangs reign supreme ! Blind ignorance of the historical causes of our misfortunes leads incessantly to these irrational and repetitive destructive mobilizations of the national economy leading the Nation towards the lowlands of widespread misery and the multiplication of armed gangs that divide the public space. where they reign supreme. It is total blindness where even humanitarian corridors are ignored and women and children are abused. That's enough !
Leaders of the opposition, stop your destructive actions of the Nation that go against the legitimate rights of the citizen to life. Continue the path of dialogue begun at the Marriott and calm the irrational fervor of your activists in search of enlightened leadership!
Mr President, be sincere in starting this new process of inclusive dialogue. You bear on your shoulders all the responsibility for the future of the country. With the latest report of the disastrous BRH reporting the collapse of the national economy, you owe it to you to take the right and immediate recovery measures by allowing State entities to play their full role. You must also take action to combat the rising violence by seeking help from the 'Great Friends of Haiti' to assist the Police, which must be applauded so far and the Armed Forces in their infancy. It is high time for you to restore the integrity of the land, free movement and peace of the streets.
I am 102 years old and I continue to dream of a beautiful country where life is good for all, a Haiti Historic and Cultural Center of the Caribbean.
Will I have the pleasure of seeing it in its early days before I leave for the afterlife ?"
