Abstract:

Haiti holds the distinctions of being the first independent nation of Latin America and the Caribbean, the first black-led republic in the world after it gained independence in 1804 as part of a successful slave revolution, and the poorest country in the Americas. Government instability due to political violence is the norm. This episode examines the political situation in Haiti, including an interview with then exiled Haitian president Jean Bertrand Aristide. The former Catholic priest, who was elected with 67% of the vote, served barely six months in office before being ousted in a military coup. Also featured are David Korb's film "The Other Haiti" about the grass roots democratic movements there, a report from Andrew Tyndall on television news coverage in Haiti, and the country's peasant democracy movement and its music?
