Kevin Pina, a filmmaker and journalist covering Haiti for more than a decade, provided details on events never reported in the international press, "There was a massive outpouring of support in the streets of the capital for President Aristide and Lavalas on November 25, 2002. The largest number cited in AP and Reuters for this demonstration was 2,000 persons. Photos taken by independent journalists show that the crowd was in fact far greater then the numbers cited. The only photos filed by corporate news organizations on November 25th were of much smaller anti-Aristide demonstrations and NOT ONE PHOTO of the much larger pro-Lavalas demonstration was EVER published in the corporate media."
