On December 6, 2014, thousands of anti-government protesters, hit the streets and had clashes with the police in the Haitian capital.

Opposition politicians regularly accuse that Martelly is deliberately postponing the election as he prefers to rule the country by order of decree. Haiti is a protectorate of US with all its 'free trade zones'. Some of the protesters were blaming the US for supporting Haiti's leadership. They were carrying pictures of Russian President Vladimir Putin on the placards and called on for his help. Many of them succeeded in reaching the National Palace. For the last two years citizens were not allowed to cross in front of the National Palace. One protester, who identified himself as Reginald, had said, this is a victory against President Martelly who is destroying our country.
