There are 1 comment on the story from Apr 16, 2008, titled Anger over Hunger/Food Prices in Haiti Explodes. In it, reports that:

For the past few months poor Haitians have been calling the hunger that they feel every day "Clorox," because it is so painful that it feels like they have drunk bleach.

After weekly demonstrations in Port-au-Prince and elsewhere against rapidly rising prices of basic necessities and gasoline, the growing anger at these desperate circumstances spilled into the streets.
