On the occasion of the 219th anniversary of this event, the Mayor of Delmas, Wilson Jeudy calls on everyone to come together in order to reproduce a major feat, that of restoring hope to our young people, providing them with the levers of social ascent and restore security in the country that only consensus and the transcendence of personal and clan interests can enable us to achieve. To properly commemorate this decisive victory of the indigenous army at Vertières, it is necessary to think and act in the interest of the Nation, because the practices of division and rescue-who-can have shown their limits. The town hall of Delmas wishes you all a good commemoration !"

"[...] Vertières, a powerful symbol of the bravery of our ancestors and of our national dignity, is the most prestigious emblem of our collective memory.
