Anti-government protests are possible on Sunday, June 23, in the capital, Port-au-Prince. According to American diplomatic authorities, protesters will march from Place Dessalines to the National Palace via Champ de Mars, Carrefour de l'Aéroport, Delmas, Pétion-Ville, Bourdon, Lalue, and Avenue Christophe.
An increased security presence, along with localized transportation disruptions, are likely around demonstration sites. 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.
