Haitian gangs support the channel and will confront Henry

Port-au-Prince.- Jimmy Chérisier, also known as Barbecue and leader of one of the Haitian criminal gangs known as G9, has declared war on the de facto president, Ariel Henry. During demonstrations organized by Vivir Juntos, a coalition of gangs in the metropolitan area, Barbecue stated that Ariel Henry “will be overthrown by force.”

He characterized the recent demonstration as a test and indicated that a real armed battle against Ariel Henry would soon be initiated. Barbecue urged criminals not to use their weapons against the population but rather against those in power and their accomplices.

Additionally, Barbecue announced his intention to financially support the construction of the canal on the Masacre River, along with providing weapons, although he didn’t provide specific details.

Leaders of various gangs in Haiti have expressed their support for the construction of the canal in messages spread on social networks and announced free movement in the southern and northern entrances of the country. There have been rumors that criminals are preparing to take control of public offices, including the National Palace and the official residence of Prime Minister Ariel Henry.

Anarchy has already taken over the country. The gangs in Haiti have more power than the police and the government can do nothing to stop them.

I suppose that one of the twists in this incident is that the Dominican President says he is protecting the DR from the entry of Haitian gangs at the very same time as Dominican gangs cause dreadful problems in cities in Costa Rica and Peru and even Argentina The Haitian gangs are in the capital and not on the Massacre River and of course it is quite natural that all Haitians would support the canal workers.

“Dominican gangs” in Costa Rica, Peru and Argentina??… WTF are you talking about?? Hahahaha. I literally have seen ZERO news about this. Also, armed Haitian gang members ARE present in the border area. They’re the ones making sure that the canal gets built…..

This is great news. It is time for the gangs to unite and remove the US backed government.

The support of the channel by the gangs is not political. The support is so they can skim money and materials from construction donations to use for their own criminal enterprises.
