Chairman Kambon of Emancipation Support Committee demands Haiti issue a boycott against products from the Dominican Republic (DR). It is a response to the DR's policy that strips Haitian descendants of their citizenship.

Kombon says "It is a crime . . . for us to do things to benefit the . . . Dominican Republic. They are disrespecting all of us."
