Description:
1. Headlines with Yvette Rowe (00:00-00:23)
2. According to William O’Neal, former legal Director of the International OAS UN Civilian Mission to Haiti, there is evidence of accelerated human rights abuses in Haiti. According to him the number of executions in that country is quite alarming and the number of forced disappearances in February and documented rape cases is also cause for concern (00:24- 4:11)
3. Former U.S. Defense Attorney Casper Weinberger has condemned the U.S. policy on Haiti. He said the policy is stupid and weak giving wide latitude to Haitian military leaders. He said Clinton’s two-footed support of ousted Haitian leader Jean-Bertrand Aristide epitomized a lack of U.S. leadership on foreign policy issues worldwide (04:12-4:40)
4. Dominican Republic President Joaquin Balaguer has said the United Nations economic blockage has gone on too long and if it is not lifted soon, Haiti is in danger of a social explosion. Haiti’s legal advisor Bill O’Neal denounces that claim as hypocrisy (04:41-05:56)
5. The Dominican Republic’s election campaign is about to enter its last month. The opposition candidates have been repeatedly accused Joaquin Balaguer’s government of illegally using public funds to promote the President’s own campaign for re-election. The strongest accusations have come from Jose Francisco Pena Gomez of the Dominican Revolutionary Party, whose four or five-point lead over Balaguer seems to be stagnating (05:57-8:32)
6. A Canadian wild life group has joined the recent boycott campaign to dissuade travelers from going to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia, Grenada and Dominica as a protest against their stance on whaling issues. The Animal Alliance of Canada says it supports the U.S. based International Wildlife Coalition Initiative. However, International group Green Peace and the International Wildlife Fund have chosen not to support the boycott. The Director of the Animal Alliance of Canada comments on why his organization believes the boycott campaign is the right tactic (08:33-12:10)
7. An article written in a British journal which suggests that war time leader Winston Churchill was a lifelong racist has caused controversy among his supporters in Britain. The piece published in the right-wing journal the Spectator was written by a young historian Andrew Roberts. The revelations are being viewed as an unwarranted attached on the reputation of Britain’s prime minister. Carol Orr reports (12:11- 14:16)
8. A German minister has said he will use all available means to fight the recent banana agreement between the European Union and four Latin American producers (14:17-14:36)
9. Wrap-up (14:37-14:43)
