This is the full 2-1-10 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.

Today we bring you part 1 of a 2 episode look at the history of Haiti, its relationship with the United States, and how this history has set the stage for the current crisis in Haiti following the earthquake of Jan. 12th. On this episode will air an interview with Haitian solidarity activist and Evanston alderman Lionel Jean Baptiste. Mr. Baptiste will discuss how since its successful war for liberation in the early 19th century, the United States government has done its best to try to prevent Haiti from successful developing true independence and autonomy and how this policy is at least partly to blame for making Haiti the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.
