The U.S. Embassy informs U.S. citizens of a large protest in Petionville. Currently 400-500 people are on Rue Villate, escorted by the Haitian National Police. U.S. citizens are advised to avoid the area. Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. You should avoid areas of demonstrations, and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.
