Anti-Govt. demo turns violent in Haiti – PressTV


Saturday’s peaceful demonstration turned violent after police arrested two protesters they accused of being thieves in Haiti’s capital city Port-au-Prince.

Police used teargas and fired rubber bullets to disperse protesters, who were hurling rocks at them.

“Since Mr. Martelly came to power, they have been stealing all the reserves of the government… Martelly took everything,” said opposition member Calistin Jhonny during the protest.

Following the parliament’s dissolving due to the expiration of its members’ terms on January 12, Martelly began ruling by decree. via PressTV.
