Sugar cane cutters protest at Embassy of Haiti
Hundreds of sugar cane workers congregated at the Haitian Embassy in the Dominican Republic to demand the government of Haiti issue their essential documents for which they have paid. Jesus Nunez, spokesman for the Union of Sugar Cane Workers, said that the workers have made payments of RD$4.6 million to secure their documents. He said that given the irresponsibility of the authorities of Haiti, they have no other alternative than to continue the protests, as reported in Diario Libre.
The protestors wrote to the head of the Haiti mission in the Dominican Republic, Magaly Magloire that they value the letter of former ambassador Daniel Supplice as responsible, human and correct in exposing the lack of responsibility of the government of Haiti in not delivering the documents to its nationals.
