On 14 January 2021, the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “Political opposition groups intend to demonstrate throughout Port-au-Prince on Friday, January 15. Additionally, the organization known as SPNH intends to demonstrate on Sunday, January 17 as well. Possible demonstration sites include, but are not limited to, Champs de Mars, Nazon, Bourdon, Delmas, Petionville, and the U.S. Embassy. Please remain vigiliant as there is the potential for these demonstrations to turn violent. The U.S. Embassy will restrict non-official travel of its direct-hire U.S. citizen staff to the immediate Embassy neighborhood, and urges U.S. citizens to exercise caution while traveling in Port-au-Prince.”
