Haiti: Marchers ask ancestors to overthrow Moïse, circle palace 7 times

A group of anti-government protesters walked around the National Palace seven times Wednesday, calling on spirits to help them overthrow President Jovenel Moïse. 

“We’re in the streets to ​​invoke the spirits of our ancestors, the spirit of the great master, the spirit who made the earth and the sky, like Boukman said, so they can accompany us to kick Jovenel out of office,” said organizer Claude Toussaint.

The demonstrators said they will keep protesting until Moïse’s conscience torments him enough, he leaves office. They said they will hold another march without announcing it next time.
