Haiti Prime Minister Pierre-Louis: "Shut up"
By Yves A. Isidor, wehaitians.com executive editor
CAMBRIDGE, MA Aug. 17 - This is certainly not what a significant number of well-dressed, properly coiffed people - more than 300 professionals and aid workers -attending a conference would expect. Unfortunately, at the last week so-called Haitian Diaspora Unity Congress, in Florida, the Caribbean nation of Haiti prime minister, Michele Duvivier Pierre-Louis, was told to "shut up," minutes after she commenced addressing those in attendance for the circumstance.

"Shut Up"

The reason given for Ms. Pierre-Louis's forced removal from the speaker podium was that the former United States' president, William "Bill' Jefferson Clinton, was scheduled to speak at approximately the same time, and apparently had far more important issues, not limited to improving Haiti's image around the world, to discuss with the audience. 

Sure Ms. Pierre-Louis was subject to the indignities of a public humiliation - the most antiquated form of punishment.
