In December of 2010, I was in Port au Prince working as a journalist covering the elections and preparing a one year update on the earthquake’s effects. One afternoon I noticed men carrying metal out of the Ministry of Finance building and went inside to take a closer look. I found the building almost completely gutted by fire and severely damaged by the eathquake. Men and boys were working, removing metal and wood. The dismantling of a beautiful old government building for scrap was a startling sight to an outsider but perhaps sense to the hundreds living in the nearby tent encampment on the Champs de Mars. In my down time over the next few days i followed several and learned more about what they were doing.
