Protests to demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse are slated to take place on Tuesday, June 11, in Port-au-Prince, Pétion-Ville, Jacmel, Gonaïves, and Cap-Haïtien. The June 11 protests will mark the third consecutive day of anti-government protests; on June 10, many businesses were closed in the capital and protesters erected roadblocks on several thoroughfares.
An increased security presence, along with localized transportation disruptions, are likely around demonstration sites, notably in Port-au-Prince. Clashes between police and protesters cannot be ruled out.
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.
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.
