Should President Jean-Bertrand Aristide of Haiti resign in for the sake of domestic tranquility?
`PORT-AU-PRINCE -- Supporters of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide blocked streets with burning tires and debris Friday as his opponents mounted a second day of marches to demand his resignation.

Thick black smoke billowed from dozens of intersections in the capital as groups of Aristide supporters, some armed with shotguns and rifles, crammed into the beds of battered pickup trucks and roamed the city.

The president`s backers surrounded the National Palace and dared the opposition to show up.

``Tell them to come over, we`re waiting,`` said a defiant Harold Nicholson Veillard, 34. ``Tell the bourgeoisie if they don`t like it they can leave the country.``

There were unconfirmed reports of at least one person shot in Port-au-Prince, and countless others struck by rocks. The protests extended outside the capital, from the southern city of Jacmel to Gonaves in the west.`
