Anti-government protests in Haiti turn violent


\”We are moving forward to removing him from power and won\’t stop until he leaves,\” said demonstrator Jean Daniel.

Martelly, his prime minister, Laurent Lamothe, and the first lady attended a church ceremony in the northern city of Cap-Haitien, the site of another, smaller protest Monday, a national holiday that commemorates Haiti\’s final battle before it secured independence from France in 1804.

In a speech that followed at a historic site where the fight apparently took place, Martelly appealed for unity. \”If we didn\’t put our heads together, we wouldn\’t have had the Battle of Vertieres,\” he said. \”If we didn\’t have our heads together, we wouldn\’t have a Haitian state.\” via Anti-government protests in Haiti turn violent
