NOW segment on Miami FTAA
by now Saturday, Feb. 28, 2004 at 8:07 PM

NOW segment on what went down in Miami last November.

QuickTime movie at 46.7 mebibytes

A number of indymedia folks and activists spent hours helping the NOW producers with this segment. Now that it has finally aired, the question being asked is, "was it worth it"?

I was in Miami, but was not able to see the Bill Moyer's Show. My Dad sent me an e-mail saying, "The segment on "Now" about the Miami confrontations was disturbing."

He went on to discuss Haiti, Saying:
He was looking into CINTAS Corp. in Haiti. "Well of course there IS a connection between CINTAS and Bush, but even
a cynic like me didn't expect it to be this amazing. Check out this article and note who the biggest contributor was --Dick Farmer the Chairman of the board of CINTAS."

So the trail twists like this: CINTAS corp. takes advantage of virtual slave labor in Haiti; CINTAS Chairman gives $685,000 to Bush and other Republicans; turmoil in Haiti threatens CINTAS profits; Bush kicks out Haiti president and sends in Marines; Dick sends George a thank you note and more money.

FTAA, Miami Model and Haitian Coup are related, of course.

See Link for more thought on the Miami Model.
