What is Really Going on in Haiti

It has been nearly impossible to get accurate information about the situation in Haiti from the corporate media, with most of the Haiti reporting heavily distorted. MADRE has prepared a “backgrounder” on the situation in Haiti that explains what is happening and provides some historical context. Democracy Now is reporting that the United States has armed the paramilitaries and is likely giving logisitcal support.

In keeping with their anti-immigration stance, the Bush Administration has announced that refugees from Haiti will be denied entry to the United States, even as the Haitian president has warned of a possible refugee crisis in the coming weeks .

UPDATE (03.01.04):

Democracy Now is reporting that Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide was “abducted” by the United States.
