Protests Affect Water and Electricity Services in Haiti


Port-au-Prince, Feb 11 (Prensa Latina) Haitian General Directorate of Water and Sanitation warned that the current demonstrations make it difficult to supply fuel to pumping stations in the capital, leading to disruptions in service.
Guito Edouard, Head of the agency, said in a statement that steps are currently being taken to supply their water tanks and provide regular service.

He asked for everyone’s collaboration to make it easier for water tankers to get through the capital’s streets, especially in underprivileged neighborhoods.

Haitian Electricity Company also apologized to the population for the interruptions in electricity supply during the protests, which Monday are reaching their fifth consecutive day.

For this Monday the opposition called for a new day of mobilization that must begin in the Petion Ville neighborhood and cross Delmas, Carrefour, Airport, La Saline avenues, pass through the seat of Parliament and end at the National Palace.

The call aims to denounce the constant depreciation of the national currency, insecurity, access to education, food situation and current economic crisis of the country.
