Video: Stars and Stripes burn in Haiti anti-US protest // RT Ruptly

Anti-government protesters took to the streets of Port-au-Prince, Sunday, to mark the 211th anniversary of Haitian Flag Day and denounce the US' involvement in the country's political and economic affairs.

Protesters gathered in the Bel Air district before marching through the streets calling for President Michel Martelly's resignation. Demonstrators also set fire to a piece of material with stars and stripes print, shouting "Obama should not have supported this government."

The protesters tried to reach the area near the National Palace but were blocked by a police cordon.
