They will report on the response of the Haitian grassroots to:
- the victory of the Aristides’ return, despite US opposition, after seven long years of campaigning that cost many lives;
- the recent fraudulent elections foisted on them by the US;
- the NGOs which have received millions in public donations while 1.5 million earthquake victims continue to live in tent cities often without food or water.
Selma James and Nina Lopez are available for interviews.
