Amy's interview with Aristidie, her coverage of his homecoming
Democracy Now! Exclusive Interview with Jean-Bertrand Aristide: If Haitis Military is Restored, We Are Headed Back to Misery

Former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his family were flown on Friday by the South African government back to their home in Haiti after seven years in exile. Just before their journey, President Obama called South African President Jacob Zuma to try to prevent the trip. But the South African Government said it would not bow to pressure, so the Aristides boarded the flight in Johannesburg on Thursday night. Democracy Now!s Amy Goodman was the only reporter to join them on the journey. This is part one of our global broadcast exclusive conversation with Aristide as he flew over the Atlantic Ocean, approaching Haiti. If we decide to go back when we had an army of 7,000 soldiers controlling 40 percent of the national product that would mean we are headed back to misery, instead of doing something to move from that misery to poverty with dignity, Aristide says.

Former President Aristide On His Partys Exclusion from Haitis Election: Exclusion is the Problem, Inclusion is the Solution

In this broadcast exclusive, Democracy Now! follows former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide flights out from South Africa and his historic return to Haiti after seven years of exile. Aristide returned two days before a delayed presidential run-off election was held on Sunday between pop star Michel Martelly and former First Lady Mirlande Manigat. Special thanks to Hany Massoud and Sharif Abdel Kouddous, Nicole Salazar, K.K. Kean and Kim Ives.
