Elections are approaching.  Political violence and police brutality
are surging. Haitian police are being trained in "civil rights"
by U.S. cops from some of the most brutal, corrupt and despotic
police forces in  the country --New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles.
Occupying U.S. troops are setting up bases around
the country before their withdrawal. The Dominican Republic
is gearing up to expel Dominicans of Haitian ancestory and perhaps
planning to invade Haiti.

The U.S. still refuses to return 160,000 pages of evidence of
crimes committed during the coup.  Cuban doctors are staffing
hospitals all over Haiti. Meanwhile, privatization continues to
be met by mass protests.

Hear Ben Dupuy, coming direct from Haiti, and other speakers
analyze Haiti's explosive situation and the prospects for the
struggle there in the months ahead.
