Making Contact - The Crisis Made in Haiti

Aftershocks continue to rock the island nation of Haiti, one-million people are homeless and more than 150,000 are confirmed dead. Mass burials and cremations in the streets have now replaced search and rescue efforts.

On this edition, we take a look at the roots of the devastation of Haiti’s capital - Its history with the US, the militarization of American relief efforts and the economic policies that contributed to its people’s plight.


Daniel Brevil, Haitian-born master drummer and San Francisco Bay-Area resident; Bill Quigley, Legal Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights; Gabe Gonzalez, campaign director, Center for Community Change in Washington, DC; Pat Robertson, televangelist; Pierre Labossierre, Haiti Action Committee; Brian Concannon, Director, Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti; Colette Eloi, San Francisco bay-area based folkloric Haitian dance teacher; Guy de Chalus student of traditional Haitian drumming.
