On 13 September 2022, violent demonstrations occurred in several neighborhoods of the capital Port-au-Prince following Prime Minister Ariel Henry’s announcement two days earlier that an increase in gas prices will go into effect on 17 September. Demonstrators erected flaming barricades in the streets on the evening of 12 September to halt transit while fellow protesters threw stones and fired live ammunition to discourage pedestrians from circumventing the barricades. Due to the protests, American Airlines canceled its outbound flight from Port-au-Prince, as the roadblocks made traveling to the airport a hazardous journey. Additionally, the French Embassy in Port-au-Prince suspended routine services until further notice. Though demonstrations have been ongoing in Haiti for several months to protest the deteriorating security environment and high cost of living, protests will likely intensify in the coming days following Henry’s announcement regarding fuel price adjustments.
