Medical Team # 1 - Departed Port-au-Prince

Medical Team # 1 has left Port-au-Prince on a UN flight.  They should be arriving in Santo Domingo, Isabella airport soon.

There is a protest on the 15 October road in Port-au-Prince.  They are flying flags upside down.  Appears to be a peaceful demonstration at this point.

  1. What/who are they protesting? Is it anger towards their government about their response (or lack thereof) to the earthquake or towards the foreigners?

  2. I drove through that protest this morning. They were apparently calling Americans thieves, because of all the relief supplies that are still sitting at the airport and have not yet been distributed.
