Event

Opposition leaders announced in a press conference on Tuesday, October 1, that a protest is scheduled in Port-au-Prince on Friday, October 4. Participants plan to gather at the UN office in the Clercine area, near Toussaint Louverture Internatonal Airport (PAP). However, organizers did not immediately announce a meeting time. Access to PAP may be disrupted or blocked due to the protest.

A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are expected near the protest site. Associated protests in major urban areas around the country, as well as clashes between security forces and protesters, are also likely.

Context

Protests in Haiti have been primarily motivated by widespread food and fuel shortages, an ailing economy, and allegations of government corruption.

Advice

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.
