Haiti: Monday protest strike

Yon ayisien posts photos and a short report (FR) on a strike taking place in Haiti today, and doesn't miss the opportunity to take a swipe at MINUSTAH, the UN Security Force. The strike, he says, is “to protest the kidnappings and the overall lack of security and non-punishment of wrongdoers. The streets were deserted this morning. At sites occupied by MINUSTAH, tanks and soldiers (or police officers) of the United Nations mission were actually present for a change. I've never understood what they're supposed to be doing. Counting the passing cars, perhaps?”
