53 minutes, color

Since the forced ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide,
thousands of followers of his Lavalas Family political party have
been killed, forced into hiding or exile, jailed and hunted down by theUS-installed government of Gerard Latortue. All of this occurs underthe watchful eyes of the “international community.”

UN forces now occupy Haiti after relieving Special Forces and military units from the U.S., France and Canada. They are in Haiti under a UNSecurity Council resolution to stabilize the country for upcomingelections. Meanwhile, at odds with the UN mandate, thousands ofLavalas supporters continue to take to the streets to demand thereturn of their constitutional president.

Haiti’s wealthy elite (through the many press outlets they own), the
international community and the corporate media almost universally
attribute recent violence in Haiti to Aristide and Lavalas.

This documentary is but a small glimpse into recent events in Haiti
that tell the untold side of the story.
