GLOBAL BROADCAST EXCLUSIVE

DEFYING WASHINGTON: HAITI'S ARISTIDE RETURNS TO THE CARIBBEAN

In a Democracy Now! Broadcast Exclusive, Amy Goodman Travels With Aristide and Chronicles the Inside Story of this Historic Trip

On March 14-15, 2004, Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman flew with Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his wife Mildred as they made their historic return to the Caribbean. This was a trip the Bush administration did not want to happen. Aristide was accompanied by a delegation led by US and Jamaican lawmakers who chartered a Gulfstream jet to escort him back to the Western Hemisphere. The delegation was made up of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA); Randall Robinson, TransAfrica founder and close friend of the Aristides; Sharon Hay-Webster, Jamaican MP who was representing her prime minister and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM); and Ira Kurzban, Aristide's Miami-based lawyer. Washington Post reporter Peter Eisner was also with the group. From every stop of the journey, Amy filed detailed reports by satellite phone and she conducted the only on camera broadcast interview Aristide has granted since his removal from Haiti.
