Various social and political groups have called for a series of anti-governmental protests to take place on August 10, 14, 17, 22, and 29. Demonstrations are possible throughout the country on these dates, although the largest gatherings will most certainly be held in the capital Port-au-Prince. All protests in Haiti, even smaller ones, have the potential to disrupt daily life as they often involve roadblocks and/or violence.

The protests are being held to demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moïse, the liberation of people arrested during violent unrest that broke out July 6-8, and the arrest of individuals implicated in the Pétro Caribe corruption scandal.

Individuals in Haiti are advised to monitor the situation and strictly avoid all protests and associated roadblocks due to the likelihood of violence.
