Sans Souci Bus set on fire in Arcahaie and Fonds des Blancs
Here is a picture of a bus set on fire by protesters on National road Number one.
On September 16, 2015, a bus from the 'Sans Souci' and a dozen of motorcycles were set on fire at Arcahaie & Fonds des Blancs during a demonstration of protest held on the National Road No: 1. It was the 16 consecutive days of protest that the situation had remained very tensed; the roads were blocked in several places. The local inhabitants had burned tyres and wrecked cars on a protest against President Martelly's unilateral decision to make "Les Arcadins" a commune and to connect it to the Artibonite Department. Several casualties have already been reported in recent days, especially, from the forceful intervention of the police.« Previous · Next »
