Four Die in Ongoing Anti-Government Protests in Haiti

HeadlineOct 01, 2019

Anti-government protests are continuing in Haiti. Much of the capital Port-au-Prince has been locked down for the past two weeks. At least four people have been shot and killed in recent days, after Haitian police opened fire on protesters, using live ammunition and tear gas. The protesters are demanding the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse. This is Haitian activist David Oxygène.

David Oxygène: “The people are fighting, and the government is repressing it. The town is on the street to dismiss Jovenel. To expel Jovenel means a solution to hunger. To dismiss Jovenel means a solution to the murders in the popular neighborhoods, as we see in La Saline, Tokyo, Grande Ravine and Fort National. Being on the street is a political battle against the system.”
