Hundreds of residents of the Vallée-Pitot red zone took to the streets this Monday evening. They oppose the maintenance of the red zone in their locality. According to reports, police officers dispatched to maintain order were mistreated. The inhabitants of Vallée-Pitot went on the streets in large numbers last night, Monday, June 7, to demonstrate their disapproval when the maintenance of the red zone has not yet been communicated until 8 p.m.

On their way back up, the latter removed the roadblocks and threw stones in the direction of the police vehicles. The residents of Vallée-Pitot and Plaine-Verte had taken to Magon Street shortly after 8 p.m. to express their anger.

Finally, it was around 9:40 pm that the Ministry of Health issued a statement confirming that Vallée-Pitot would indeed remain in the red zone. According to the Government Gazette, the area will remain red until 8 p.m. next Monday, June 14.
