US Military's method of providing Haiti 'relief'

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Fri, 01/22/2010

While most countries around the world have focused on sending search and rescue teams and doctors to Haiti, the US government’s response to the disaster has been to send military troops to secure the airport and nearby areas.

 

Signal FM was the only radio station that remained on the air through last week’s massive earthquake in Haiti.  The station has been broadcasting live 24 hours a day for the last ten days, trying to help survivors find each other, and providing what was virtually the only means of communication in the days after the quake.

Haiti: Disaster Capitalism

program date: 
Mon, 01/18/2010

It's time to stop talking about charity for Haiti and start talking about justice--about recovery, responsibility and fairness.  Frann Michel puts the Hatian disaster in historical context and demonstrates how " Haiti was made poor--by France, the United States, Great Britain, other Western powers and by the IMF and the World Bank" (Richard Kim, The Nation).  You can read this piece here, where you'll find links to much more information.

PressWatch: Haiti Katrina-ed?

Headlines:  Radio Havana Cuba

rhc.cu

Port-au-Prince, January 20 (RHC)-- Haiti was hit with a powerful new earthquake just a little over a week after the initial quake that killed tens of thousands of people. The latest earthquake hit shortly after six a.m. Wednesday morning, registering 6.1 on the Richter scale.

Thousands of people were seen flooding the streets of Port-au-Prince, but it remains unclear what damage the new quake may have caused. The quake struck as the official death toll hit 70,000, but it’s widely estimated the actual toll could top 200,000 and even higher.

The History of Haiti and its subordination by Colonial Powers, like the good ol' US of A

program date: 
Tue, 01/19/2010

 Abe and Joe take a brief tour through the bloody history of Haiti, and discuss the obligations that the developed world has -- or should have -- toward the undeveloped world.

The calamity in Haiti has made one thing abundantly clear -- when a nation has been at the business end of colonialism for centuries, it's that much more difficult to react when disaster strikes. And when, like Haiti, a nation has the temerity to aspire to self-government by people of African descent, the disparity is even more striking.
