Haiti - Social : The Refugees of «Cité tôle» threatens to take to the streets
Last Tuesday, around 12:30, the inhabitants (children, youth, adults, old people and women in the majority) of Cité tôle one of the refugee camps of the Avenue Simmond's, a popular neighborhood of Petit-Goâve very touched by the earthquake of January 2010, went under a blazing sun, to "Radio Preference fm" to express their claims of and explain their poor living conditions.

Visibly shocked and angry, they claim a housing while denouncing the unfair manner in which the NGO workers would distribute the shelters in the area. According to them, NGO workers who had registered their names on a list, would favor their families and would neglect the "real homeless and the real victims [...] Us who are poor, we did not have a shelter, while those who already have significant privileges, contrary to us, receive a shelter... These people do not live in these shelters... Most of these shelters offered are rented..."

The Refugees of Cité tôle complain about their fate... hey face all the hardships: no shelter, no food, no toilets, no drinking water... Their situation is deteriorating day by day... Each night they are attacked by snakes... They pray God, so the rain not fall, when it rains, they sleep in the water because they have nowhere to go. They are now threatening to take to the streets if the NGOs and local officials refuse to give to each of them a shelter.
