Haiti - Politics : The opposition mobilizes massively in the streets
After the September 12 demonstration https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-22098-haiti-flash-violent-protest-against-the-budget-and-the-head-of-state.html against the vote of the budget law 2017-2018, the opposition began yesterday Wednesday 4 days of protest (20, 21, 22, 23 September)

Senator Nénel Cassy (Lavalas) promises that "totalitarian excesses of Jovenel Moïse" will be countered by the opposition and that the struggle will continue until the withdrawal of the draft budget law 2017-2018. Jean Myrtho Julien a member of the Executive Committee of Fanmi Lavalas continues to demand a popular uprising against the government of Jovenel Moïse.

According Jean-Charles Moïse,Jovenel Moïse is no longer responsible since he implicitly signed his letter of resignation with the publication of the budget...

The record of the PNH for this first day of demonstration has not yet been communicated.
