Protests in Haiti – level 1

26-02-2019 07:00

People in Haiti protest. Some people break things. Some people set cars on fire. They set a petrol station on fire. Police fight the protesters.

The people are angry. Inflation in Haiti is very high. They say that their president and the politicians are corrupt. They do not help the country. They only get money for themselves.

Difficult words: inflation (when you can buy less and less things for the same amount of money), politician (a person in politics, a ‘boss’ of a country or city), corrupt (only taking money for themselves and not helping the country).

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