The Story from Haiti, part fifteen

In this episode from June 14th, Dick Gordon talks to Sandro Linden, who moved from New York to help out his family before the earthquake, and who now is living in a tent and selling whatever he can on the street. Gordon makes the point that most of the stories in the media now are about Americans going to Haiti and the work they are doing and their reactions. While those stories are of course valid and draw attention to Haiti (a good thing), it is important to keep listening to the voices of Haitians themselves and what they are going through. This is why I love The Story so much, because of their inclusion of many voices.

Here's my index to the Haiti-related stories from this radio show.
