Haiti Action (reposted)
Ten of thousands of supporters of Haitian presidential candidate René Garcia Préval paralyzed Port-au-Prince on Monday with demonstrations denouncing Haiti's Feb. 7 elections as fraudulent. The demonstrators erected makeshift barricades at all major roads and thoroughfares. Acrid black smoke rose above the capital as demonstrators set tires ablaze to block cars from passing through busy city intersections.
