Haytian Demonstrations

2004/08/04

August 3, 2004

Ten were killed and 25 wounded as Haytians marched on the Nouvelle Francien headquarters in Cap-Haÿtien today. The protesters shouted slogans implying that the promised elecions have been held up by Nouvelle Francien trickery, that they sought to annex them to Nouvelle Francie with a puppet Intendant, and that DieuDonné III was being prevented from leading the island nation.

Similar demonstrations took place in the Louisiannan South, although there were no deaths and only minor injuries. The cries in the south were hostile to the Republican government of Louisianne, demanding the complete withdrawal of foreign troops from Haytian soil and a return to the Empire of Hispanola under the reign of DieuDonné III.

Little has been heard of Hispanola proper, although some claim that it is being slowly infiltrated by the Cuban junta seeking to restore at some level the Florida-Caribbean nation. A joint Irish-RTC peace-keeping force was promised earlier this year, but due to complication in Florida have not materialized.

M. Dessaline was unavailable for comment, residing in seclusion in the Imperial Palace under protective Haytian guard, loyal to the emperor.

Haytian diplomats have approached the leadership of fractured Hispanola in both Santiago and Santo Domingo, but as yet have been rebuffed by the various juntas.
