Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Demonstration in Nazon/Bourdon/ Petionville today, Sunday, April 24, 2016

Demonstrators are currently gathering at the intersection of Blvd. Martin Luther King (Nazon) and Ave. Panamericaine (Bourdon). The demonstrators are expected to march up Bourdon to the CEP in Petionville and end at Place Boyer. All U.S. Citizens are advised to stay clear of these areas. Please keep in mind that demonstrations in Haiti, even peaceful ones, can escalate quickly and even turn violent, so the Embassy urges all U.S. citizens to remain vigilant, be aware of their surroundings, and avoid these areas as much as possible. Should you find yourself among or near protesters, depart the area immediately.
