On 21 July 2021, protesters staged violent demonstrations in the Quartier-Morin commune, located approximately 10 km (6 mi) southeast of the coastal city of Cap Haitien, to demand that the perpetrators of the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse face justice. The protesters – some heavily armed – set up roadblocks and burned tires on the road between Quartier-Morin and the nearby Trou-du-Nord area, where Moïse was born. At least one person was shot and killed during the demonstration. Reports also indicate that several hundred employees fled businesses in Quartier-Morin amid the unrest. Earlier in the day, protesters in Quartier-Morin threw stones at the motorcade of the interim Haiti national police chief as he drove by. The violent protests — which more frequently occur in the capital Port-au-Prince — were the first instances of protest-related violence since Moïse was assassinated. Additional protests may occur in Cap Haitien or elsewhere in the lead-up to Moïse’s funeral, which is scheduled for 23 July in Cap Haitien.
