Humanitarian Crisis in Haiti
Nearly one year after U.S. Marines ushered former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide from the country, Haiti has sunk into ever deepening despair. On this edition, Correspondent Reed Lindsay takes a look at the offensive launched by the U.S.-backed Haitian government against supporters of the former president. We’ll examine the return of the feared Haitian military, and see how the United Nations peacekeeping force in Haiti is turning a blind eye to state-sponsored human rights abuses. And we’ll hear from Haiti’s poor, who have been the hardest hit by the change in government. – www.radioproject.org
