Opposition senators from several districts have called for countrywide demonstrations on Friday, September 27, to demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse. Protests are expected to be significantly disruptive with gangs mobilized and almost certain violence. Organizers did not immediately announce locations or times, though should be expected in Port-au-Prince and other urban centers, as well as on major roadways.

A heightened security presence and localized transport and business disruptions are expected near all protest sites. Clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.


Protests are primarily motivated by the fuel crisis, overall government opposition, and the lack of support for the new prime minister.


Individuals traveling in Haiti are advised to avoid all protests as a precaution, monitor the situation, allow ample travel time, and obey instructions issued by the local authorities. Increased vigilance is advised.

The security environment in Haiti remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
