Today on Flashpoints, we follow the lives of those in hiding and under death
threat since the US coup that drove President Aristide out of Haiti. We’ll
speak with a youth reporter whose collegue was murdered by US backed members
of the former military. We hear from Haitian human rights activist Mietzlean
Wilson, also in hiding; and an Aristide official who snuck out of Haiti to
brief members of congress and demand temporary asylum for the growing
numbers of Haitians fleeing the violence. We’ll hear from an American
pro-democracy activist now in Haiti protesting at the US embassy who was
threatened by American soldiers. A report back from occupied Palestine where
today Israeli soldiers killed two children. And of course, the Knight
report.
