Haiti: The Price of Freedom

By Carolyn Cooper

The US refused to recognise the new Haitian republic and imposed an embargo that lasted until 1862. In 1915, the US invaded Haiti to protect its economic interests and remained in occupation until 1934. Local Haitian leaders were no less predatory than foreign forces, as demonstrated in the truly terrifying reign of Papa and Baby Doc.

Witness to a nightmare

Schon wieder helfen alle Haiti. Wer solche Freunde hat...

Noch ist die Zahl der Opfer des Erdbebens längst nicht klar - in jedem Fall war es ein einziger Schrecken. Und während die Mainstream-Medien neben der Suche nach möglichst ergreifenden Bildern sich vor allem der Selbstdarstellung der Güte großer Mächte widmen geht es in unserer aktuellen kleinen Materialsammlung "Ein politisches Erdbeben" vom 15.
