Haiti Emergency Relief Special:

We get an update on the situation in Haiti from Pierre Labossiere of the Haiti Action Committee and actor/activist Danny Glover. For decades Haiti has been the victim of aggressive and punitive western foreign policies that have driven the small island nation into desperate poverty. This has been exacerbated by a series of environmental catastrophes beginning in 2010 when the capital, Port au Prince was struck by a devastating earthquake. The situation was made worse this year when Hispaniola was hit by Hurricane Sandy, leading the displacement of 200,000 Haitians. Added to this is the ongoing Cholera epidemic that has infected some 6% of the country's population or more than 700,000 people. On Tuesday the UN announced a 10-year plan to deal with the crisis, but has yet to formally accept blame for the outbreak, which was traced back to a camp housing Nepalese soldiers who were part of a peace keeping force sent to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake.
