Kevin Pina interviews political analysts about Sean Penn's role in Haiti


Protesters outside of Dreamforce Conference in SF on Nov. 19 where Sean Penn spoke glowingly
of Martelly's regime to a star-struck crowd including president Marc Benioff.

In a startling display of ignorance for a purported genius,
founder Marc Benioff falls prey to Sean Penn's celebrity by welcoming
Haiti PM Laurent Lamothe to the Dreamforce Conference in SF.
The previous day, tens of thousands of Haitians demonstrated
throughout Haiti calling for the resignation of president Michel Martelly
who came to office through a series of tainted elections

Kevin Pina joins Margaret Prescod on Sojourner Truth heard on KPFK in Los Angeles. He discusses how Haitian president Martelly has moved to rehabilitate and protect "Baby Doc" Duvalier who stands accused of human right abuses and crimes against humanity. Pina also lambasts the role of actor Sean Penn for providing credibility to Martelly even as he stacks his government with Duvalier supporters.


Call for demonstration in San Francisco just released:
