HAITI VIDEO: Is Haiti Happening in Honduras?
Port-au-Prince, Haiti, JUNE 2004 – US Marines notoriously threatened demonstrators from the poorest neighborhoods with guns. Kevin Pina is the guy on the left in white shirt and jeans with a camera in his hand.
Kevin is the founder of the Haiti Information Project, a journalist and documentary filmmaker and Special Correspondent for the Flashpoints program on KPFA Radio in Berkeley, CA. Kevin worked as a journalist in Haiti for several years and was there during the 2004 coup. Kevin made a very important film about the coup entitled, “Haiti: We Must Kill the Bandits.”
HIP – A new educational video released today by journalist and filmmaker Kevin Pina entitled Haiti: We will bend but we will not break highlights the resistance before the coup of Feb. 29, 2004. In this 20-minute video we see the roots of Haiti’s movement representing the majority of the poor struggle to contain the juggernaut of the coup fomented and supported by the Bush adminstration, the OAS an the international community.
Part 2 is scheduled to be released shortly. Pina stated, “I wanted to give those interested in Haiti a chance to digest the complex information in the first part before releasing the second. This is a history and footage that is largely unseen and a story mostly censored by the corporate media. I hope it will resonate given the current situation in the country.”
The Haiti Information Project (HIP) is a non-profit alternative news service providing coverage and analysis of breaking developments in Haiti.
