Since the forced ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, thousands of followers of his Lavalas Family political party have been killed, forced into hiding or exile, jailed and hunted down by the US-installed government of Gerard Latortue. All of this occurs under the watchful eyes of the "international community." UN forces now occupy Haiti after relieving Special Forces and military units from the U.S., France and Canada. They are in Haiti under a UN Security Council resolution to stabilize the country for upcoming elections. Meanwhile, at odds with the UN mandate, thousands of Lavalas supporters continue to take to the streets to demand the return of their constitutional president. Haiti's wealthy elite (through the many press outlets they own), the international community and the corporate media almost universally attribute recent violence in Haiti to Aristide and Lavalas. This documentary is but a small glimpse into recent events in Haiti that tell the untold side of the story.
Proceeds from this event will go to Kevin Pina, KPFT news, and Voices Breaking Boundaries.
