May 3rd is International Freedom Day. It is since 1993 that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, better known as Unesco, came up with this date to remove the hat from the work of journalists and the media throughout the world.

On May 3, 2024, the media and journalists in Haiti are living a more complicated situation every day. They cannot move freely and freely to search for information, because of the terror and acts of gang violence with guns that are on everyone’s shoulders, while they are attacking all institutions, organizations, hospitals, health centers, pharmacies, university spaces, libraries, all kinds of businesses, public and private offices, public transport vehicles, etc.

Haiti has become one of the countries where it is more difficult for journalists to do their jobs and to exercise the profession of journalism properly. Since January 2022, 11 journalists have been murdered. The situation of journalists has become more complicated since gangs and guns are increasing their acts of terror and violence. Some journalists have died. There are journalists who are subjected to acts of kidnapping. Some journalists are forced to flee the country. There are media that have been subjected to acts of destruction, such as acts of looting by gangs and guns, in the past days, on the newspaper Nouvelis, which has existed since its first date in 1898, it has been 126 years in the year 2024. There are many journalists who have received threats, like on the internet, because of how journalists are doing their work. It is a series of threats, which are under the feet of the freedom of journalists to exercise the profession of journalism properly. If nothing is done to stop these acts of brigandage against journalists, the country of Haiti can become an information desert, a silent area, an area where babouquets return, as during the dictatorship regime of the Divaliers. Journalists must be able to work without fear for their safety and life. There must be provisions to protect Haitian journalists. It is the short cry of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco), on the occasion of May 3, which is the World Press Freedom Day.

The US Embassy in Haiti says it takes its hat off to the professional courage of women and men, who are working tirelessly to make everyone aware, both in the country of Haiti and in the rest of the world, know what is happening in their country. d Haiti. The United States government says it is committed to supporting with all its strength freedom of the press in the country of Haiti. This is the message of the new US ambassador to Haiti, Dennis Bruce Hankins, on the occasion of May 3, which is World Press Freedom Day.

In the year 2024, the journalism profession will be subjected to great political pressure. The political authorities, who are supposed to be willing to guarantee the freedom of the press, are the ones who make threats and attacks on the freedom of the press in the world. This is what Reporters Without Borders (RSF) wrote in its report on the situation of freedom of the press around the world, which was made public on May 3, 2024.

On Thursday, May 2, 2024, after the judge of instruction of Port-au-Prince Merlan Belabre heard it, the prosecution arrested the general secretary of the senate, Marie Nelly Verpile Boyer, in what is said to be a scandal of long finger superiors and waste of state money, in the senate.

In a note made public on Thursday, May 2, 2024, the Potoprens civil court asked again for people not to sell gas in containers on the street. The judiciary can pursue everyone, who would not respect this decision. It is the warning package of the civil court of Port-au-Prince.

From time to time, the authorities always issue warning notes, asking people not to sell gas on the street, without taking any measures to make the gas available at the pumps on the territory of Haiti.

For several years, especially since the team of the Haitian Party (Phtk) has taken over the political power of the country, the population has been experiencing more difficulties in finding gas available at the pumps on the territory of Haiti. On the street, the price of gallons of diesel, gasoline and white gloves are still selling division grades every day more.

What happened on Tuesday, April 30, 2024 inside the Presidential Council for Transition, is a scandal. It is a disappointment and a shame, which is included in the framework of a rogue policy, to hold office, to maintain a policy based on impunity and corruption, to keep the population in the rut it is. Group maneuvers, which say they are the majority, do not agree with the ideas that have been established by the President’s Council for the transition. The act of Tuesday, April 30, 2024, is a serious act by a group of actors, who do not love the country or the Haitian people. Political actors and civil society, who have delegates within the President’s Transitional Council, must raise their heads and regain their composure to bring solid solutions, without crooks, to the problems that have been stirring the country’s budget in Haiti in recent years. It is the consideration of AlterPresse and AlterRadio Platform of Haitian human rights organizations (Pohdh).

The country of Haiti is living one of the most complicated periods in its history. The patriots must be vigilant, to prevent all political and economic national reactionary forces, such as international, from controlling the country’s power space, to increase the calvary and acts of persecution against the population. We raise our voice against the looting and criminal practices of the 4 leaders, who set up the so-called majority bloc within the Presidential Transitional Council. It is a behavior that prolongs the misery and suffering of the poorest part of the population. Because of this, we are fighting against all forms of bribery, against all cover-ups, to protect gangsters, criminals, corrupt people, to get amnesty, and to prevent rigged elections, which is the goal of all these fraudulent operations. It is the organization of the Marian Patriot Initiative (Ipam), which is established in the northern part of Haiti.

There would be steps being taken to find a solution to what happened on Tuesday, April 30, 2024 within the President’s Transitional Council. The discussions taking place should lead to a correct majority of 7 members out of 7, who should vote in the decision of the President’s Council for the transition. This is what a source close to the Presidential Transitional Council told AlterPresse and AlterRadio.

The delegate of the agreement on August 30, 2021, people who know more about the name of the Montana agreement, Fritz Alphonse Jean, delegate of the Lavalas Family political party Leslie Voltaire, delegate of the Association of Big Businesses Laurent St-Cyr did not participate, in an online meeting on Thursday, May 2, 2024 with the leaders of the member countries of the Caribbean Community (Caricom), on the open mouth inside the President’s Council for the transition, since the maneuvers on Tuesday, April 30, 2024. This is what the available information says. [ppsf emb rc apr 03/05/2024 14:26]
