Anti-government strike paralyses Haiti’s capital

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Schools and businesses are closed in Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince as the city braces for more protests on Monday.

Opposition leaders have called for people to either take to the streets and demonstrate – or stay safe at home.
They are hoping to pressure the president to resign.

But the ongoing unrest is having a major effect on the lives of ordinary people.
