(7 Jul 2018) Major protests continued in Haiti on Saturday after the government announced a sharp increase in gasoline prices. Demonstrators used burning tyres and barricades to block major streets across the capital for a second consecutive day. At least three people have been killed. Journalists saw the body of two protesters who had been fatally shot in the Delmas area of the capital as demonstrators clashed with police. It was unclear who shot the men. The demonstrations began after the Commerce Ministry and Economic Ministry issued a joint statement announcing an increase of 38 percent to 51 percent for gasoline, diesel and kerosene. The increases take effect Saturday. Government officials agreed to reduce subsidies for fuel in February as part of an assistance package with the International Monetary Fund. The agreement also included increased spending on social services and infrastructure and improved tax collection in an effort to modernize the economy of one of the poorest nations in the Western Hemisphere. A litre of diesel will cost about four US dollars and a litre of regular gas will cost nearly five US dollars under the new prices. The increase will reverberate through the economy of a country where about 80 percent of the people earn less than two US dollars a day.

Africans are the same, geography notwithstanding.

Any sign of funds being released from the Clinton foundation to ease the suffering ?

They're all too busy with identity politics , talent shows, taking selfies and being seen paying huge money for a cup of coffee

Declan Hegarty it's insane how people just ignore what the Clintons did to Haiti.
