Opposition leaders call for demonstrations in Port-au-Prince on October 14-17; heightened security and localized transportation disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/14/2019, 12:00 AM until 10/18/2019, 11:59 PM (America/Port-au-Prince). COUNTRY/REGION Port-au-Prince


Opposition leaders have called for anti-government demonstrations to take place in Port-au-Prince from Monday, October 14, through Thursday, October 17. Protests are notably expected in front of the US Embassy on October 14, 15, and 17.

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


The recent protests in Haiti have been primarily motivated by widespread food and fuel shortages, an ailing economy, and allegations of government corruption. At least 18 people have died in Haiti since protests erupted over fuel shortages on September 2.


Individuals traveling in Haiti are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, budget additional time for travel, 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.
