CAP-HAITIEN — Some banged spoons against aluminum plates, others, wrapped themselves in Haiti's red and black flag, held signs that read "operation guard the dollar'' and "we want a change" as they demonstrated against Prime Minister Ariel Henry, demanding his resignation. While they spread their message across in different forms, they also came together in their chants. 

Si Ariel pa ale nap boule peyi a, which translates to "If Ariel doesn't leave we will burn the country."


Cap-Haïtien residents took to the streets to demand the Prime Minister to leave office following a spree of protests across the country.
