COMMUNICATIONS STORIES FROM HAITI'S GRASS ROOTS
"One week after the coup, they shot us up again. On October 2nd,
I interviewed the exiled president who was in Washington. One hour
later they came, shooting in broad daylight. On October 15th, I
decided to stop broadcasting after they came to my home during the night."
(Jean Dominique, director of Radio Haiti Inter).
'Kreyon Pep La Pa Gen Gonm' (The People's Pen Has No Eraser),
published by WACC, analyses the past, present and future of grassroots
media in Haiti, focusing on the stories and experiences of people and
groups struggling for their right to communicate.
The report offers a detailed insight into the popular
communications movement that helped to bring down the country's dictatorship
and continues to help build the foundations of Haiti's democracy, including
excerpts from interviews with some of the key players. Four case studies of
WACC-supported media organisations are assessed and evaluated.
This valuable resource offers a unique insight into the role of
community media in Haiti today. To receive a copy of the report, which
costs five pounds sterling, please contact:
