Haitians hoard Dominican coins to make bling-bling

Dajabon, Dominican Republic.- Haitians are hoarding coins of one, five and ten pesos to melt them in shops in their country and then make metal jewelry, which they sell in the streets and establishments of different cities in Haiti, including Cap-Haïtien and Port-au-Prince.

The merchant Jael Louis said that with the five and a peso coins, Haitians make rings, earrings, hoops and also, after melting them, they place them as ornaments on copper chains.

Louis said that because the material with which the Dominican Republic’s currency is made is of good quality, people, mainly women, easily buy the final product.

Please deport the millions of Dominicans that are in Haiti. Haiti gives Dominicans millions of jobs and yet Dominicans don’t appreciate the great country of Haiti which millions of tourists flock to.

They’re selling pussy in Haiti.. since you’re playing stupid! I know Haiti is not the best country right now economically, and security wise, but to think that you don’t need haitian work force is stupid. Why do dominican flock to other countries if everything is all good in the Dominican republic? I will give you a simple answer, “ECONOMIC” reasons. If you feel like that tell your good uncorrupted president to tell all the dominican citizens to come back home and see how many will come back.. what’s always shiny on one side is not always bright on the other side, be careful what you wish for… being ignorant is a curse, educate yourself on history, by the way I’m a very wealthy haitian that’s worth over well over a hundred fifty million dollars, and I don’t look down on people… I help

So lets do something ., tell all your Haitian ppl to leave DR . specially the punta cana and bavaro area .. All those hotels are full pack of Haitians. So Dominican can work in their land… I have a farm with about 60 Haitians working for me.. Im sending all of them back to Haiti. So they can work over there…

This is the truth. 1000%. There would be no punta Cana build up like it is without the hard work and cheap labor of Haitians. Dominicans don’t do hard work.

I don’t know how to tell, if you are naive or stupid… Dominican are NOT lazy, because we are working hard in P.R. and USA… The TRUE is dominican don’t work for cheap like haitians in DR. that work like slaves, FOR NOTHING… And after that, sometimes bad dominicans don’t pay to haitians… and no matter what, people from haiti come back to work for shit… because HAITI IS WORST… The other TRUE is that Rich Haitians DON’T LOVE Poor Haitians… Stop talking trash, because that the reality… Also, people from Haiti NEVER talk against France, the ONLY ONE guitly of Haiti’s disgrace… You have to read, and stop talking trash

I only ask that any stranger who wants to visit Haiti submit an application for an entry visa, to control the flow of other nationals who live in the country.

Ils ont pris nos terres comme vous dîtes mais Qu’est-ce qu’on a foutu avec la nôtre ? On est gouverné par des incapables, on ne s’entend pas entre nous. On s’entretue pour un rien, on ne cultive plus, regarde ce qu’on a fait de Port-au-Prince avec des petites cases au lieu de rester à la campagne pour cultiver les terres et prospérer. Saint Domingue avance plus vite que nous et un jour tous les étrangers achèteront nos terres et nous serons obligés de travailler avec eux sur notre sol comme des esclaves. Si on ne prend pas conscience de tout cela, ce sera perdu. Déjà les bandits prennent le pays en otage, on ne fait rien. On regarde, on va prier, voir les Ougans ….Ils sont où les descendants de Dessalines ? Réveillez vous !!!!

Il faut arrêter de critiquer les dominicains, il y a des mauvais et des bons partout mais on n’aime pas voir un concitoyen avancer, dès qu’il entreprend quelque chose, on essaie de le tuer tandis que le blanc va ouvrir une boutique, on ne va pas l’emmerder, par exemple lui mettre une mauvaise chose devant sa boutique etc… Pour un compatriote, on le tuera s’il le faut. On a assassiné mes parents avec la complicité de certains membres de la famille et amis et depuis rien. On me fait même des menaces, vendre une partie de notre héritage avec de faux papiers, alors j’espère que ça changera un jour et qu’on pourra tous retourner y vivre. Pour le moment c’est cuit mais ce sera pire si on ne fait rien…. Bravo saint Domingue et Vive HAÏTI……

This is a major disrespect and embarrassment of Dominican symbols by an eternal enemy that continues insistently to displace and erase the Dominicanhood.
Dominican, be ready and defend your part of the island from your enemy!
