Politics in Haiti – level 1

20-07-2018 07:00

This news is from Haiti. It is a country in the Caribbean. Haiti’s prime minister wants to make fuel more expensive there. He wants the price to go up by 50%.

People do not like this. They protest. They break and steal things. The prime minister sees this. He resigns.

The people want the president to resign, too. They want him to resign because many people do not have jobs.

Difficult words: fuel (coal, gas or oil), resign (quit – stop being in a job).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
