Today on Flashpoints, we continue our drumbeat coverage of the situation in Haiti as the violent, US-backed coup surges into another week. We hear the words of a twelve year-old Haitian girl in hiding from the death squads; Flashpoints correspondent Kevin Pina returns with an on-the- ground report; We go to the Central African Republic where Aristide’s lawyers meet with him for the first time as they begin to map out a legal strategy to undo the coup; A rebroadcast of Aristide’s first address to the Haitian people, a Flashpoints exclusive; A roundtable discussion on Haiti through the eyes of Haitian and American women activists; Poetry by homeless youth on a new Flashpoints segment, Roaddawgz .
