photos - student strike

Periodically the medical students and other supporters will set up burning tires in the area near General Hospital and Rue Oswald Durand. Traffic can not pass through the area when these activities go on.

The students set fire to this vehicle inside one of the school campuses.

In anger the students set fire to this UN police vehicle. The 2 UN policemen escaped unharmed.

The haitian police and UN use tear gas to send the students off of the streets and back to their campus compound where they are staying. The UN and the haitian police have been instructed by the government not to enter onto the campus compound to remove the students. Pray for an end to the student strike as the state General Hospital is not able to function because of it. These photos were all taken from the internet.
