Media Make Change launches Haiti project

5 easy ways to help:

1. Send us your used cameras. Don’t let that 2005 gem of a digital camera continue to collect dust. Give it the chance to collect critical information on current events and social/political crises. Give it the chance to help Haiti.

2. Post about Project Haiti Speaks on your blog, Facebook, MySpace, or Twitter. Status updates are as meaningful as you choose to make them. Tweet about making change in Haiti today. You know you can spare 140 characters or less to save the world.

3. Read blog posts and watch videos produced by Haitian citizens. The media giants get enough attention. Seek out the stories that are produced by the people. You’ll get a much more balanced perspective on current events.

4. Contribute to the conversation about what we, as concerned global citizens and citi-journalists can do to make a difference. Learn about Haiti’s history, comment on blog posts, talk about what’s going on, and engage in the process of making social change.

5. Check back frequently on Media Make Change for updates on Project Haiti Speaks. Or better yet – stay in the loop by signing up for our RSS blog feed, following us on Twitter, friending us on MySpace, and becoming a fan on Facebook.

Haiti: Press Freedom in the Disaster Zone

As the media continue to report on what will be a story for months, if not years, we hope that government officials and aid organisers will keep in mind the need for transparency and access to information for reporters around the world. At no greater time than during a war or a major disaster are we reminded of how critical the press is in imparting knowledge and holding organisations and governments, and sometimes citizens, accountable.

Rebuilding the media in Haiti

It is impossible to locate survivors, organise relief and distribute aid without reliable news and information being relayed by functioning news media. The major relief operation being mounted by the international community in Haiti requires a similar effort on the part of the international media, which have a vital role to play.

But the Haitian press has been devastated by the earthquake.

Reporters Without Borders therefore intends to set up a centre of operations for Haitian journalists in Port-au-Prince in order to enable them to cover the situation and thereby assist the process of providing assistance to the population.
