Haitian trade unions to go on strike against insecurity

Port-au-Prince, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) The transportation and subcontracting trade unions said on Thursday that they will go on strike against kidnappings, the fuel crisis and what they consider the bad handling of the deportation of migrants from the United States.

The trade unionists confirmed that Monday will be the day of a national strike to denounce the increase in kidnappings for ransom, ‘which threatens everyone,’ while the price of the illegal sale of fuel has increased twofold or threefold in the illegal market, Jacques Anderson Desroches, a spokesman for the union force to save Haiti, said.

Desroches also condemned the ‘humiliation inflicted by the United States’ on Haitian migrants, and criticized the fact that Prime Minister Ariel Henry has not issued a note of protest or called for a moratorium on deportations.

Nearly 4,000 Haitians have been been deported from the United States since September 19, when that country started mass deportations amid a migration crisis that drove some 15,000 people, mostly Haitians, to Del Rio city, Texas.

For its part, Mexico on Wednesday deported 70 Haitians, who returned home voluntarily.
