Haiti - Politic : For the USA, the demonstrations in Haiti would be financed by economic actors
Juan González said he was convinced that these street movements are financed by powerful economic actors (without naming them) who risk losing a lot of money if the Haitian system is reformed. Emphasizing "These are people who often do not even live in Haiti, who have villas in different parts of the world and who pay [the leaders, organizer, Neighborhood Chief, Gang Leaders...] for people to go out on the streets."

Evans Paul also disagrees with Antonio Guterres' comments about protests in Haiti being led by bandits...
