    Schools and businesses are closed in Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince as the city braces for more protests on Monday.

    Opposition leaders have called for people to either take to the streets and demonstrate - or stay safe at home.

    They are hoping to pressure the president to resign.

    But the ongoing unrest is having a major effect on the lives of ordinary people.

    Al Jazeera's Manuel Rapalo reports from Port-au-Prince.
