Video: Mac Talks With Quake Victims in Haiti

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Read human rights reporter Mac McClelland’s dispatch from Haiti, or see the full Mother Jones special report on Haiti’s reconstruction.

Mac McClelland went to Haiti in September to explore the displacement camps, and we sent along a handheld Flip camera and set her up with a videographer. Below, you can see the conditions for yourselves: cramped tents, blistering sun, and torrential rainstorms that destroy the few houses people do have. In the video, Mac talks with Daniel Julian—who you’ll meet here in her dispatch from Haiti—and tours the “model city” of Corail Cesselesse where there’s little food, no work, and few services.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
