Binational Market Of Dajabon Disrupted By Demonstration In Ouanaminthe
Recently on December 5th, the business in the Binational market at Dajabón in Dominican Republic was severely disrupted when a widespread protest was staged in nearby Ouanaminthe and other Haitian towns. Heated clashes between the police and residents took place. The inhabitants were demanding better services, lower taxes on merchandise, supply of electricity to the homes of Caracol by Caracol Electrification Project and the resignation of President Martelly. In the early hour of the day, some hooded individuals closed the gate on the Haitian border side and started throwing stones and bottles towards the Dominican side. Although, the door was reopened later, but very few buyers and sellers ventured to take risks. The traders from both sides of the border were affected. The big buyers and sellers could not cross the border due to road blocks at the junction of Fort-Liberté and Marfetí.
For a town of only about a hundred thousand inhabitants, the North-East Department city of Ouanaminthe is certainly not behind in schooling. The city along the Haitian border with the Dominican Republic is home to many schools, though most are for small children. Once a certain level of education has been reached, older students will matriculate to schools outside of Ouanaminthe in order to continue their studies. Still, the small city is home to secondary schools and a university of its own.
On November 19, 2013, President Michel Martelly inaugurated the largest sports complex in Haiti at Ouanaminthe. While visiting this North Eastern border town he was accompanied by some ministers of the state and senior government officials. The sports complex meets every aspect of customary standards and includes a football field with seating capacity of 500. There is space for basketball court, a mixed area for volleyball and tennis, administrative offices, physical training facilities and cloak room. While inaugurating, the Head of the State talked about the potentials of the area and mentioned if you have enough determination, land and resources, it is nothing difficult to develop a well-built community.
