"Shelter In Place": All Hell Breaks Loose In Haiti

The US embassy in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince warned American tourists to "shelter in place" as violent demonstrations erupted across the island over a fuel price hike.

An estimated 120 Americans are believed to be staying at a Port-au-Prince hotel targeted by protesters, who attempted to bypass security and set the building ablaze. Youth groups and missionaries from an array of U.S churches are also stranded in the Caribbean nation, unable to make it safely to the airport for departure.

One of the comments:

seems rational.

i know when fuel prices go up, the first thing i want to do is to burn down the nearest hotel.

Proletariat implies working class. Do the “protesters” make an impression of being workers?
