Troy Posted May 5, 2010 Report Share Posted May 5, 2010 The full interview http://runt.it/soledadobrien KW: What is the Haitian government doing about the fact that they have a situation where people are being enslaved? SO: It’s such a hard thing for those of us in this country to get our minds around, but it’s completely legal. I’m sure you saw in the piece how the boy named Matthinson’s father sold him for about $12 dollars to go and be a slave for a complete stranger. But it’s an indication of just how devastating the poverty is in Haiti that that’s a viable option. It’s pervasive throughout the country. And unfortunately, it’s perfectly legal.
