Haitian money transfer agents marched through the streets of Port-au-Prince on Wednesday to push back against central bank regulation that requires them to disburse money transfers in gourde.
The protesters started marching from Lalue and attempted to walk toward the Bank of the Republic of Haiti (BRH). However, security guards stopped them from advancing.
BRH announced Oct. 1 that all money transfers must be disbursed in gourdes instead of dollars. Source
