Students in Port-au-Prince are planning to launch a sit-in protest in front of the Faculté des Sciences of the University of Haiti on Friday, May 24, to denounce the recent killing of a university professor on May 22, and more generally the growing insecurity across the country as a result of gang violence and to demand that authorities establish a stable security environment.
A heightened security presence and traffic disruptions are likely near the protest site. The risk of associated violence cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Port-au-Prince are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
