Haiti - FLASH : 2nd day of violent demonstrations at least 3 dead and many injured...
In the aftermath of the Thursday protests across the country https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-26875-haiti-flash-important-damage-at-least-4-dead-and-21-wounded-during-the-demonstrations.html the socio-political crisis seems to be gaining momentum in several cities of the country where many demonstrations have been reported. Most of the activities were largely paralyzed in the metropolitan area and in several provincial towns, the government's call Thursday night for the resumption of activities was clearly not followed. Despite the police presence, the government seems to no longer have control of the situation or civil disobedience seems to be the word of some protesters and breakers.

Partial assessment of the situation :

Port au Prince :
On Friday there was a timid resumption of economic activities (formal and informal) in the capital where barricades of burning tires had been erected at various places, particularly at the corner of St-Honoré and Oswald Durant streets, and a burst of arms automatic was heard not far from the National Palace. Protesters had tok again the streets to continue to demand the resignation of the Head of State. The situation remained tense all day, some commercial banks opened their doors, and some gas stations were working and public transportation was scarce and schools closed.

Pétion-ville :
In Petion-ville barricades of burning tires were reported, and the police tried to control the protesters and prevent some individuals from attacking businesses and super markets.

Gonaïves :
Protesters in the city of Gonaïves threatened private banks and the police station of the PNH and tried to burn several other buildings.

Cap Haitien :
Economic activities remained stalled in the country's second largest city. No school was opened and public transportation did not work. Flaming tires and barricades everywhere in the city. At least 1 death and a dozen wounded, according to Senator Yuori Latortue.

Petit-Goâve :
Demonstrations are reported in Petit-Goâve where the city has been paralyzed since Thursday. At least 3 people were injured, 2 vehicles and a house burned.

Human balance sheet :
In the city of Gonaïves, 2 young demonstrators reportedly died and 5 wounded were reported by the hospital. In Petit-Goâve 3 wounded. In Les Cayes 2 injured police officers. In Cap-Haitien 1 dead and a dozen wounded
