Distaster Capitalism in Haiti Talk

Hello Everyone,

I will be giving a talk about Disaster Capitalism in Haiti, two years after the earthquake, at the Bank of Ideas on Saturday 21st between 12 and 1 pm.

Andrew Cooper and I have been discussing the opportunity to use the venue for regular Free School events. It would be great if people came along to discuss how we might use the space in the forthcoming weeks.

Two years after the earthquake in Haiti and only a fraction of the revenue raised by donors has reached the Haitian people. Half of the rubble is still lying where it fell and the most popular political party in Haiti is still excluded from the electoral process. Having recently returned from the 2nd Ghetto Biennale in Haiti, I will be speaking about my experiences there and parallels between the situation in Haiti and the slow disaster capitalism taking place here.
