Protests in Haiti affect border market activity in Dajabón

Dajabón.- Protests in Haiti, extending to Juana Méndez, impact the border market in Dajabón with reduced merchant activity. Barricades and tire burnings in Juana Méndez obstructed roads, leading to low attendance, primarily by “chiriperos” on foot. Wholesalers from the north and northeast faced challenges reaching the market due to blockades and insecurity on Haitian roads. Security on the Dominican side has been heightened with Cesfront, Army, and anti-riot police in preventive alert. The reinforcement is attributed to concerns about potential PLD member protests related to the recent electoral process in Dajabón. Authorities aim to maintain public order amid the situation.
