Dajabon, Dominican Republic.- The charity organizations Red Fronteriza Jano Siksè (RFJS) and Solidaridad Fronteriza (SF -Frontier Solidarity) today asked the transport union leaders and bus lines of Dajabon, to dismount the Haitian immigrants in the new Customs and Immigration building.

In a statement, the organizations that defend social and human rights of the citizens of the neighboring country called the dismounting in the outskirts of bus stops a humiliation, where they are subjected to all type of extortions.

“The violations committed against them range from simple hustlers, drivers and moto-axis to members of the military and police agencies, which should guarantee life and public order,” said the statement by RFJS coordinator Hilda Peña and the priest Regino Martinez, of SF.

They said they expect from officials as well as from the drivers involved with the vehicles that transport Haitians who return home, as well as those who enter legally, “to treat them as the other foreigners who visit us every day.”

Everyone should respect one another, regardless of where we are from, but the citizens of Haiti must first demand respect for social and human rights from themselves in their native homeland before they demand elsewhere. Then and only then will the nation begin the collective start to prosper and grow.

But of course human rights should be respected. However, when you attempt ot break the law and cross over to another country illegally, you become vulnerable and subject to abuse.
Nevertheless, basic human rights is something everyone is entitled to have in spite of being undocumented.

"citizens of Haiti must first demand respect for social and human rights from themselves in their native homeland before they demand elsewhere"

We should respect others no matter what. Just because they themselves may treat each other bad in their own country it does not mean that we have to do the same in our country. That is what divides a civilized society and an uncivilized one. People with thoughts like yours are what strain the DR from being completely civilized.

I can sympathise and relate to the treatment Haitians are subjected to, once on Dominican soil.

I was once disrespected and humiliated by the Puerto Rican m'ther f'kers at the Isla Verde airport on my way in from Wash., DC.
A plane load of my compatriots were waiting for the connecting flight to SDQ, when these security suckers began yelling and pushing us to quickly get on board the plane, as if we were cattle!
I went berserk and told every one of the A-holes to screw themselves and that we were not to be treated in this manner! My compatriots intoned in and had us one hell of a riot- in- the- making!
Finally, one of their superiors showed up and apologized. We all calmed down and had us a happy and very satisfying flight to our DR. relieved to be out of Puerto Mierda!
This happened over 20 years ago, and to this day I still resent PR people. I don't associate with them, nor will I ever do!

Whenever you believe that life happens to you, you will lose the power to change and the power to control your nations future. As a people all must believe that your citizens will determine their own future, not the United Nations and international charity organizations, or the Jesuits .

A critical mind-set shift must take place to make Haiti a better place for its people. All change starts within. If a nation starts by deciding to change from within as a people, then the nation is on the right path to a better future.

The same remedy applies for the Dominican Republic as well. If we cannot understand it, we cannot change.

At lovingit,
You couldn't express your self any better, well done.
We should treat everyone with respect regardless, close minded people think and talk like "ElSuavecito" basically he's saying lets disrespect them, because they are disrespecting each other monkey see monkey do. Too bad we have uncivilized people like that in the DR.

Why would Dominican businesses treat Haitian customers well, since they don't treat Dominican customers well either.

You have not advanced a single argument where you differ with disagreeable viewpoints, you simply make personal accusations. It’s easier to dismiss someone’s opinion using preconceived notions born of bias and based absurdity.

I wish nothing but the best for those less fortunate, who have suffered misfortune beyond their control. Ruled by an “impersonal force”, a ruling elite, which manipulates the population using various repugnant methods.

Do not turn a blind eye to forced economic exploitation and human trafficking, which are modern forms of slavery.

It must come to an end.

Look, I agree with your response of 21 Feb 2012 2:12 AM where, to summarize, you mention that people and nations for that matter have to create their own futures, but I still do not agree with your comments that Haitians must first demand respect in their own lands before they could demand respect in our DR. Respect of individuals should always be exercised whether legal or illegal, and if illegal, follow the correct procedures if a deportation is in order.

Imagine how chaotic the world would be if people that migrate to other areas are treated as if they were treated at home? especially for those that left the country because of persecutions or running away from communism, socialism, marxism, etc.

If you are born in a country with major problems, tough luck. That does not give you the right to another country with less problems. In many cases the problems are caused by overpopulation, religion or lack of education, and in many cases, these refugees take these problems with them.
The Dominican Republic has enough of these problems of her own and doesn't need to import more from Haiti. Some of these problems may be of no fault of the refugee, but they are not the Dominican Republic's fault either.

I agree with you on your 2nd post. However, since your 1st post is a contradiction of that, therefore I disagree. What I walked away with from your 1st comment was that we Dominicans should violet social, human rights, disrespect and mistreat Haitians, because they are being abused in their on country we should be doing the same. Sorry you took my comment as a personal accusation.

Lovingit and ELPAPA999,

The following is my opening statement in the discussion, "Everyone should respect one another, regardless of where we are from", it seems the respect statement was completely ignored. How could my statement keep DR from being completely civilized?

On the other hand, I'm glad that you both agree, all change starts within, because Haitian ruling class needs to be taken down as soon as possible.... By the way, thanks for the replays.
