Port-au-Prince Paralyzed by Gas Shortage Protests

News

Staff

Numerous protests blocked several major roadways in the capital city of Port-au-Prince on Monday. A fuel shortage is at the heart of the matter with many of the gas stations closed.

Blockades were made with burning barricades of tires, large vehicles blocking the roads, stones, and demonstration crowds.

According to the Office of Monetization of Development Aid Programs (BMPAD) ships with 258,000 barrels of fuel are in the harbor. But protesters are likely not to relent with this news.

On the airwaves this morning, some organizers of the demonstrations said the heightened prices due to the rarity are among their vindications.
