Support Independent Journalism in Haiti!

The need for strong independent voices in Haiti is greater than ever. Here is your chance to support the work of a young Haitian photojournalist whose work is appearing on HaitiAction.net, Haitianalysis and other media important to the struggle for democracy. Wadner Pierre has been living and working with Father Gerard Jean-Juste for the last ten years. For the last two years, he has been reporting and photographing important human rights issues in Haiti. He brings to the world information and analysis directly from Haiti’s poor, something absent in the mainstream media. Right now, Canadian photographer Darren Ell and human rights lawyer Brian Concannon are trying to raise $1000 US in order to buy Wadner a new camera that will serve him in the years to come. To do so, they are selling photographs made by Darren and Wadner in Haiti over the last year. Click HERE to view the photographs and place your order !
