Media ruins: video of second post-quake visit by RSF

(RSF/IFEX) - Reporters Without Borders has posted a video that it made during its second visit to Haiti since the 12 January earthquake, from 9 to 15 February. During the first visit, a week after the disaster, the press freedom organisation set up a Media Operations Centre in partnership with the Canadian media group Quebecor. It is being run by Haitian journalists.

The footage Reporters Without Borders shot a month after the earthquake shows its impact on the media, which have a vital role to play in relaying information about the relief operations and the country's reconstruction.

As well as giving Haitian journalists the opportunity to talk about their problems in the video, Reporters Without Borders undertook to keep the Centre going and to support local media projects aimed at providing information about the humanitarian relief efforts.
