Port-au-Prince, November 4 (RHC)-- Haiti has entered the eighth consecutive week of anti-government protests, with a curfew decreed by opposition sectors, who are asking people to stay home.

Barricades of tires, roadblocks, slowing of collective transportation and paralysis of economic activities marked this Monday in the capital and other cities of the country.

Experts note that Haiti has been experiencing a radicalization of the socio-political crisis for the past two months, the deepest since the fall of the dictatorship in 1986, while hundreds of thousands are protesting for a change in the system that will allow a more equitable redistribution of national resources.
