Haiti: Day of Mobilization to Demand the Resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry

The protests will continue until Wednesday. Barricades and burning tires have been set up on several roads in the Haitian capital.

Schools have kept their doors closed while businesses, banks, and transportation have operated at a slower pace. On the road to Delmas, a suburb of Port-au-Prince, protesters armed with machetes were seen, and in front of the official residence of Prime Minister Ariel Henry, the sit-in planned by the EDE party of former interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph could not take place due to police intervention.

The protesters denounce the behavior of the police forces and are determined not to give up. “The whole country is controlled by gangs that are forcing people to leave their homes!

Ariel is here and he’s doing nothing,” protests a man. “When something happens in another country, Ariel is ready to tweet, but here, people are dying.

He says nothing.” His opponents demand that he respect this schedule.
