It's been nearly a year and a half since a devastating earthquake struck Haiti. To this day, more than half a million people - many of them of children - still live on the streets, in tent cities. Well now, people in two of the tent cities have had their homes destroyed by a local mayor.
Wilson Jeudy - who ran for President - showed up with a bunch of police officers carrying machetes and batons. They slashed and knocked down all of the tents, including some donated by Canada. A bulldozer flattened anything that was left. Clean up crews threw everything - old mattresses and tarps - into a garbage truck.
The mayor says he's bringing some order back to the area. He says it's time to clean things up and get rid of criminals and prostitutes, who are hiding in the area. But lawyers say the whole thing is illegal. Not only that, but it's hurricane season in Haiti and many of these people have nowhere to go.
Haiti's new president has promised to help them but he hasn't done anything to stop the mayor.
