Police in Haiti appealed for calm on Saturday ahead of planned protests between supporters and opponents of President Michel Martelly, who is facing demands to resign.

Several opposition groups announced plans to march Monday in the residential neighborhood of Petion-ville, just to the east of the capital, Port-au-Prince, considered a presidential stronghold.

The same day, supporters of Martelly plan to hold demonstrations in the capital.

Opposition protests are also planned in other Haitian cities, including Cap-Haitien, the country\’s second biggest city, despite an appeal for calm from the president.

\”We are going to take precautions with our meager resources to ensure security, but we ask demonstration organizers to work with police to avoid any violence,\” a police spokesman said. via – Yahoo News
