On this episode, the LMC welcomes Jose Santana to discuss the development of the extreme right in the Dominican Republic and how it uses anti-Haitian racism to cover its capitalist motives. Jose Santana is an economist and research fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Following both the assasination of Haitian president Jovenel Moise and the recent earthquake that devastated the country this summer, the LMC speaks w/ Haitian activist Emmanuela Douyon on what happens next in Haiti and how to support support the country without repeating the mistakes of 2010.
Before the Coronavirus, Haitians faced the dangers of Cholera. And before the current health pandemic, Haitians have been fighting US-imposed neoliberalism. So the LMC spends the hour with France Francois about Haiti’s pushback against neoliberalism and how the Coronavirus stands in the way. France Francois is a social activist and the founder of In Cultured Company.
