This video highlights the Haitian university students and human rights lawyers discussing the importance of Haitian sovereignty.

January 11th, 2011 (The Agenda with Steve Paikin)
Today was my first apperance on television. It was on TVO's The Agenda with Steve Paikin. Niraj at the Toronto Haiti Action Committee forwarded my name to the producer who invited me on. It was both a unique and stressful experience - always second guessing my answers as I was speaking. Thankful for the opporunity to speak about Haiti. Hopefully next time they will include Haitians in their discussion about the lack of reconstruction about their own country.
