Interview with Persecuted Cite Soleil Photojournalist Jean Ristil
Jean Ristil was one of a number of journalists assaulted by the security forces of the interim government (put in place by Canada, France, and the United States) between 2004-2006. Some "press freedom" groups such as Reporters Without Borders (RSF) have completely ignroed the abuse while others such as the Committee to Protect Journalists spoke out. To read part of a recent interview conducted with Jean Ristil by myself and chemist Eric Feise see Upside Down World or Indy Bay Haiti .
