The commercial activities begin tentatively to resume Tuesday in Port-au-Prince, on the second day of a two-day strike call launched by the opposition to demand lower fuel prices and the departure of President Michel Martelly .
at Port-au-Prince, public transportation is still paralyzed, but alongside, the government has made available to the public extra buses.
A few private cars were also noticed on the Delmas highway.
But in other parts of the capital, activities are still at a standstill, At La Plaine, for example, north of Port-au-Prince, flaming tire barricades are still visible on the national highway.
The government had invited the public to remain calm and reiterated its firm determination to continue the ongoing dialogue with the vital sectors of the nation, we read in a note of government communications.
According to the Prime Minister, work stoppages caused by these calls to strike can only harm the national economy, and have adverse consequences for the most vulnerable populations.
Recall that last Monday's strike in itself was a success, many acts of violence were recorded at various districts of the capital.
Some people wanted to go about their activities, they were forced however to turn back by angry protesters who want nothing but causing disorder.
Moto-taxi drivers were forced to drop their passenger halfway or simply forced to go back. Tap-Tap drivers or transit buses who took the road, were forced to follow the strike call.
