Life and debt by Stéphanie Black( Visual )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 1,283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary examines the effects of World Bank and the International Monetary Fund loans on the infrastructure Jamaica established in the wake of independence from the UK in 1962. Seven billion in debt (circa 2000), Jamaica has seen its agricultural industries laid to waste by the impossibility of competing with subsidized, multi-national American based companies. The poverty of an "average" Jamaican in a shantytown near Kingston is in stark contrast to the luxurious tropical fantasy paradise experienced by tourists in posh Montego Bay. In a dog-eat-dog global economy, the US and its multinational corporate clients have all the advantages, while Jamaica has no agriculture, no industry, and no tax base--only ever-growing debt

February 7,1991: Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a parish priest, is sworn in as Haiti's first democratically elected president. For the first time, Haiti, with its land and people ravaged by human corruption, looks toward the future with hope. September 30,1991: a military junta ousts Aristide from office, bringing his brief rule to an end. As spokesperson of a rapidly burgeoning grassroots movement, he had refused to compromise, calling for a "clean slate," a new beginning for
Failing Haiti by Rod Paul( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haiti, a nation forged by a slave rebellion 200 years ago, still carries the scars of its independence and abandonment. Subjected to an endless stream of tyrannical regimes, Haiti appeared to emerge from oppression and dictatorship with the return of a charismatic young priest who defied a brutal military regime, only to be swallowed once again in despair and dependency. This is a nation caught in a tragic, downward spiral. Its economy broken, its land denuded, its children hungry. Through the perspective of two administrations handling of Haiti, one can see why the U.S. has difficulty in exporting democracy, and building respect for human rights. From sources working in Haiti with the government, and rebel insurgents, and convicted drug smugglers, the film follows the violent events leading to the departure of President Aristide. Many participants in his ouster in February 2004 appear in the film. Failing Haiti is not only a story about the continuing tragedy of Haiti, but is also a story of America s attempt to impose western democratic values on a society steeped in profoundly distinct traditions and culture. Events in Afghanistan and Iraq mirror the errors in Haiti. The film provides a brief history of Haiti, followed by events of the past year, using news footage and stills

Dignity by Jean-Bertrand Aristide( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a moving narrative, Aristide describes the tension of the September 1991 military coup, when he ran the risk of execution at any moment. He supplies the gruesome details of murders and summary executions perpetrated by, or with the direct approval of, the military junta. Throughout, he interjects his philosophical reflections on inhumanity, on Haiti's social history, and on his vision of his own leadership. "Aristide has clearly identified with the principles and tactics of Jesus for a long time," writes translator Carrol F. Coates in his afterword. "The Haitian people have envisioned him in the role of savior or messiah, and have even portrayed him thus in many wall paintings."

Haiti, land of tragedy Haiti, land of hope( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The numbers alone are stunning: 8 million inhabitants, 70 percent of whom live below the poverty line; a life expectancy of 50 years; a 65 percent illiteracy rate; and a 70 percent unemployment rate. Such is the recent population in Haiti, which ironically had its origins cast in optimism: the Haitians were the first people to abolish slavery in 1797 and establish a Black republic. Yet the following years have brought the island a succession of violence, chaotic politics, and the railroading of national sovereignty for the benefit of few. This thought-provoking documentary traces what Jean-Bertrand Aristide calls Haiti's 'linear history' back to its discovery by Columbus in the late 15th century and the violent process of colonization to the present."
