Mass Anti-Government Protests
Mass protests have been taking place in the small Caribbean country of Haiti for several months now. Those protests are so intense that they threaten to bring the country to a complete standstill. The Haitian government’s response to the protests have resulted in dozens of deaths and massive destruction throughout various parts of Haiti, particularly throughout the capitol city of Port-au-Prince. The current protests have been taking place since August of this year. The masses of Africans in Haiti, infuriated by the government’s increases in fuel prices, have been engaging in open revolt against the government. The capitalist media is reporting that the basis of the protests are demands that Haitian President Jovenel Moise resign from office, but the underlining reasons for the unrest go much deeper than that.
