Me André Michel, one of the spokespersons for the Rally of Arcahaie, announces that the “battle is underway” and a vast mobilization movement in Port-au-Prince, in the Central Plateau, in Jacmel, Petit-Goâve, in Cap-Haitien, Saint marc and Léogâne, “the whole population will stand to denounce this budget which will further impoverish the Haitian population.”

For his part, the former President of the Senate and former Minister of the Environment, Dieuseul Simon Desras, urges the population not to be manipulated by speeches suggesting that the government will revise the budget, referring to Article 35 of the a universal declaration of human rights which states that “when a government violates the laws of its country, the only way out of the people is insurrection.” He also denounced a plan aimed at assassinating opposition leaders, reminding members of the Government who would act “that they will be liable to the International Criminal Court.”
