Rice is a basic source of nutrition for all Haitians. Rice is almost entirely imported from the US. Haitian farmers can not compete with the low dumping price of the US state-aided rice. The overall situation on Haiti gets worse every year and the extreme, hardly imaginable poverty hits more and more people. The Haitian economics is paralysed, there is no infrastructure, no food supplies, the population suffer from hunger, social and living conditions in Haitian slums (e.g. Cité Soleil) are a human tragedy. The rage grows and the tension continues with undiminished strength.
