Tuesday, February 12, 2019, Haiti was shaken by violent demonstrations. Stores were looted, cars burned and a young man was shot dead by the police. It is at least the sixth victim of a movement that began on February 7 and destabilizes the entire country. The protesters demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse.

The opposition launched the protests on February 7, the second anniversary of the presidential term. The publication of a report of the Court of Accounts at the end of January fueled the anger of Haitians: the president, fifteen former ministers and senior officials are pinned in several suspicions of cases of embezzlement development.

This heightened the anger against Jovenel Moses, fueled until then by a disastrous economic situation, marked by inflation and the devaluation of the local currency, the gourd, against the US dollar.
