Haiti Crippled by Violent Anti-Government Protests

Haiti has entered its sixth week of protest demonstrations with tens of thousands demanding the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse.

Massive crowds marched through affluent neighborhoods over the weekend, spilling oil and burning tires while riot police blocked roads.

Haitians have long been fed up with poverty, scarcity and corruption. The country is one of the poorest in the Western Hemisphere with more than half the population living on less than $2.40 a month.
