Haiti: The Untold Story

Haiti: The Untold StoryGUEST: Kevin Pina, film maker and journalist, Special correspondent for Pacifica’s Flashpoints, associate editor at Black Commentator, Founding Editor at Haiti Information Project.

Rene Preval won the presidency of Haiti this February. His party fell just short of the majority it needs to choose the next prime minister and Cabinet in last week’s parliamentary elections. At least one million Haitians voted for 127 legislative representatives, including 97 deputies and 30 senators. Preval will formally take power on May 14 and will have to form a coalition government because neither his Lespwa party or his rivals have enough candidates to win a majority. We turn today to journalist and film maker, Kevin Pina. He is a Special correspondent for Pacifica’s Flashpoints, associate editor at Black Commentator, Founding Editor at Haiti Information Project. His latest documentary on Haiti is called “Haiti: The Untold Story.” The film chronicles human rights abuses by the Haitian police and the July 6, 2005 massacre by United Nations forces of unarmed civilians in the pro-Aristide neighborhood of Cite Soleil.
