Author Amy Wilentz on post-earthquake Haiti
Submitted by Roger on February 8, 2013 - 14:16
Amy Wilentz, author of the recently-published 'Farewell Fred Voudou: Letter from Haiti', is interviewed on the Feb. 5, 2013 edition of the Tavis Smiley interview program on PBS.
Wilentz considers that the aid and reconstruction effort in Haiti has largely failed. She says the primary reason for this is the deliberate or consequential weakening of the Haitian government and civil society organizations over the years by the big countries and the big aid agencies that have lorded over the country for years.
