In brief: Garment workers protest in Haiti over wage demands

*Thousands of Haitian garment workers have taken to the streets in Haiti’s capital Port-au-Prince calling for higher wages. The protests follow similar demonstrations held in recent days. Dominique St Eloi, the coordinator of a local union, Centrale nationale des ouvrières et ouvriers haïtiens (CNOHA), told reporters that workers are seeking a raise that would take their daily wage to HTG1,500 (US$14.6) up from the current HTG500.
