The National Coordination of Haitian Workers called on all factory workers to stay at home against the increase of hydrocarbons ‘because every time fuel rises we pay the consequences’, Dominique St Eloi, its leader, said.
Eloi encouraged the workers not to feel pressured by the ‘bosses’ because they are the same ones who let them die under the bullets of the gangs, he affirmed.
For its part, the People’s Movement for Change announced two days of mobilizations for this Monday and Wednesday with the objective of demanding the resignation of Henry, who, in its opinion, has not been able to stop the crisis of insecurity nor the vertiginous increase of basic necessities.
Citizens were called by The People´s Movement for Change to gather at the Champs de Mars, the main public square of the country, and at the Airport Crossing, renamed Crossing of the Resistance, and from there to move to various places in the city.
Prime Minister´s residence, to whom they will try to deliver a message, according to Ernso Ertilus, the organization’s spokesman, is the final destination.
Protests and strikes take place after a brief truce of similar movements throughout the country, which for more than a week blocked the capital and departmental cities.
