The incident occurred last Friday outside the Ministry of Education when agents of the National police force of Haiti (PNH) have used tear gas to disperse demonstrators who demanded loudly but peacefully, a better school policy. A professor of mathematics and another citizen were injured during the police intervention.

Professor, Member of the coordination of the "Union Nationale des Normaliens Haïtiens" (UNNOH) was rushed to the hospital. As for the citizen, slightly wounded in the head, he said he had come to the ministry, search for a document and it was not part of the event.
