Haitian activists protested outside of the Clinton Foundation in New York over the loss of “billions of dollars” that was meant to help rebuild after the devastating 2010 earthquake.
The activists are claiming the money was stolen through the Haiti Reconstruction Commission that was headed by Bill Clinton. In January 2015, the Clinton Foundation was the target of protests for wasting more than $10 billion and awarding contracts to non-Haitian companies.
The activists also said Haiti as a cover for foreign governments to funnel kickbacks of hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. They believe that this was done for favors that Hillary was doing for the foreign governments while she was Secretary of State.
“We are telling the world of the crimes that Bill and Hillary Clinton are responsible for in Haiti,” said Dhoud Andre of the Committee Against Dictatorship in Haiti. “And we are telling the American people that the over 32,000 emails that Hillary Clinton said she deleted have evidence of the crimes they have committed.”
Five years later, a majority of Haiti is still in disrepair. The capital’s main hospital has yet to be finished, and there is a major rise of cholera. The Clinton Foundation said progress is being made especially in Haiti’s economic and tourist industries.

To any of my New Zealand followers living in a low-lying area on the East Coast, you need to move to HIGHER GROUND. An active tsunami warning (as at 2am) has been issued for these areas following an earthquake near Christchurch. Be safe!
UPDATE: the tsunami warning has been downgraded, but remains in place as a marine and beach threat for certain coastal areas.
UPDATE 2: this tsunami warning has been retracted. Thank you everyone for spreading the word.
After Fukushima’s nuclear disaster,
which was caused by the earthquake and
tsunami that struck Japan in 2011,
Naoto Matsumura returned to live in the
exclusion zone so he could take care of
the cows, chickens, ostriches, dogs, cats,
pony, and other animals that were left
behind when their owners fled. Despite
daily exposure to radiation, he and the
animals continue to survive together. SourceSource 2
Update 3: Aftershocks are still happening on both islands and there are still a number of large ones that have happened recently as well. (5.7 and 6.3)

Stay safe New Zealand. If any of my followers live there please take care and get to high ground if you are on the south side of either island as there are live tsunami warnings.
For those of you who aren’t in NZ and don’t know what’s going on, an earthquake of 6.6 magnitude happened about an hour ago and there are aftershocks happening all over both islands ranging from 0.9 up to 6.2 in magnitude.
