Haitian workers protest kidnapping of their colleagues

Employees of the Office of Vehicle Insurance, known by its French acronym as OAVCT, held a demonstration in Pétion-Ville Oct. 15 to protest the Oct. 14 kidnapping of their director, Kurdy Larêche. The employees erected barricades with burned tires and used boulders to block the road not far from the offices of the OAVCT, and they vowed to continue protesting until Lareche is released.
