Jean-Jacques Dessalines and Alexandre Petion

Here is a picture of two Haitian leaders: Jean-Jacques Dessalines and Alexandre Petion. In public protest that took place in November 2013, the race issue cameback as the people protesting took their fight to the affluent city of Petion-Ville.

The anti-government protest became violent as those opposed to the demonstration threw stones and Police fired tear gas

As the protest took the turn to go to Petion-Ville, many stated that "Dessalines was visiting Petion".
