HAITI: THE UNTOLD STORY

Sonoma State University
Student Union, Multi-Purpose Room
8pm

Filmmaker Kevin Pina challenges the contemporary view of Haiti, revealing the hidden role of the 'international community' in Haitian politics. This provocative and lively film takes the viewer into parts of Haiti where few Western journalists dare to tread, and includes shocking footage of unreported human rights abuses, some which have been astonishingly conducted by UN forces. Pina’s film stands out because it connects the tragic events in Haiti with what he assesses as foreign intervention designed to deter democracy.

Learn the side of the Haiti coverage not seen in regular media.
Lecture on the following topics:

• The Modern Coup: Media and Non-governmental organizations as tools of U.S. foreign policy
• Haitian history and the current reality, Liberation Theology in the Haitian
• Journalism and Independent Media, Documenting Human Rights Abuses
• The Role of the U.N. in Haiti.
• Understanding the Lavalas political movement in Haiti.
