Latest update : 2010-12-21

Spread of cholera in Haiti, fight of the Napa Nui in Easter Island and cold winter in Siberia

Derek Thomson presents a news show produced exclusively from content provided by amateurs. Photos, videos and personal accounts from our network of Observers around the world - all checked by our staff in Paris. First run Saturdays at 8:10 am Paris time.

Presentation : Derek Thomson.  Editorial Team : Julien Pain, Ségolène Malterre, Lorena Galliot, Sarra Grira, Peggy Bruguière and Paul Larrouturou.
 
STORY 1 : HAITI
 
Our first Observer today is a Frenchman who's been living in Haiti for years. He's working now with the UN, helping slow the spread of cholera in the slums of the capital.
 
Observer : Vincent Grammont in Port-au-Prince.
 
STORY 2 : EASTER ISLAND
 
Now to the Pacific and Easter Island. The island is Chilean territory. But its inhabitants, the Rapa Nui, believe it's just been lent to Chile by their ancestors. Now some of the Rapa Nui want their land back. They've been occupying a dozen government buildings - and a hotel - since the summer.
 
Observer : Marisol Hito from the hotel of Easter Island.
 
STORY 3 : SIBERIA
 
We finish today in eastern Siberia where it's very cold. And it'll get even colder before the winter's out. But life goes on and the people who live there deal with it.
 
Observer : Bolot Bochkarev in Yakutsk, the regional capital.
