Protests in Haiti – level 2

26-02-2019 07:00

People demonstrated against the government in the capital of Haiti. People also destroyed and robbed shops in the city’s business area.

They set cars and a petrol station on fire. The police fought the protesters and arrested some of them. The people are angry because inflation is extremely high.

People are saying that their president is corrupt, and they want him to quit. Haiti was going to get some money for help, but the corrupt officials took it for themselves.

Difficult words: inflation (when you can buy less and less things for the same amount of money), corrupt (not doing their job – helping the country – but using their power to get rich), official (a person in a position of power, a boss of a country or a part of a country).

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