The people of Haiti have extended their demands to calling on the president to quit following the weekend resignation of the prime minister.Several thousand protesters marched on the capital Port-au-Prance on Tuesday, hurling stones at police who responded with tear gas.“We want a new country, a country in which the wealth is better distributed, where 95 percent of the people are not living in misery while five percent are controlling all the wealth,” said a spokesperson for the protesters.Haiti is still recovering from an earthquake five years ago with little rebuilding achieved since then by the government which demonstrators accuse of corruption. via | euronews
