Cientos de estudiantes universitarios bloquearon carreteras y quemaron automóviles el lunes cuando se enfrentaron con la policía en la capital de Haití mientras protestaban por el asesinato de un compañero de estudios en una manifestación la semana pasada.

Grégory Saint-Hilaire fue asesinado el viernes frente a una universidad en Port-au-Prince durante una pequeña protesta en la que decenas de estudiantes exigieron oportunidades laborales. Un manifestante murió durante la protesta del lunes tras recibir un disparo en la cabeza.

Los estudiantes culparon de ambas muertes a la policía.

No hubo comentarios inmediatos de las autoridades sobre la última muerte. El gobierno emitió un comunicado calificando la muerte de Saint-Hilaire de “repugnante e inexcusable” y diciendo que se estaba llevando a cabo una investigación.

Los estudiantes y simpatizantes prometieron seguir protestando mientras la crisis económica de Haití se profundiza en medio de la pandemia del coronavirus.

“Es muy difícil para nosotros conseguir trabajo”, dijo Jean-Pierre Maxon, de 42 años. "Los padres no pueden mantener a sus hijos".
