Gunfire caused panic in the streets of downtown Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, Sunday, and at least one person was reported killed as thousands protested against government corruption.
PetroChallenger activists and their supporters are demanding President Jovenel Moise’s resignation over allegations of fraud and mismanagement of government funds. They vow to remain in the streets until their demands are met.
“We PetroChallengers are done with traditional politicians. They are only interested in using us for their own political gains,” a protester marching on the Airport road in the capital told VOA Creole. “We’re in the streets for good and we are woke.”
Protesters were able to get within 50 meters of Moise’s private residence, located in a suburb of the capital, for the first time since the series of anti-corruption protests began. Police prevented them from getting any closer and posted additional officers in front of the president’s home.
