Event

Protests to demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse are slated to take place on Sunday, June 9, in Port-au-Prince. Protestors will gather at Carrefour de l'Aéroport (Boulevard Toussaint Louverture) and march via Route de Delmas, Pétion-Ville, Panaméricaine Avenue, and Bourdon to the Champ de Mars, near the National Palace. Rallies are possible in other cities nationwide.

An increased security presence, along with localized transportation disruptions, are likely around any demonstration sites, notably in Port-au-Prince. Clashes between police and protesters cannot be ruled out. 

Context

Numerous demonstrations have been staged in recent months to call for greater government transparency after several public officials, including President Jovenel Moïse, were implicated in a scandal related to the alleged misuse of PetroCaribe funds. 

Advice

Individuals in Haiti are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
