A year ago today, a devastating earthquake shook Haiti. Up to a quarter million people were killed and 1.5 million were made homeless. It quickly became clear that a historical analysis of structural violence committed by US, French and other governments against the Haitian people was completely absent from mainstream media’s coverage of the quake. One year later, politics and profit are still being put before the Haitian people and their health. Today we rebroadcast interviews first aired by our friends at HealthonEarth in Montreal. We hear from Dr. Megan Coffee who has been treating TB patients in Port-au-Prince since January 2010 and freelance journalist Isabeau Doucet who has been reporting from Haiti. Listen here.
