Toward Freedom - Social Fault Lines: The Disaster of Poverty in Haiti
: "Laura Wagner, a U.S. anthropologist who survived - barely - Haiti's earthquake in January, writes, 'Social scientists who study catastrophes say there are no natural disasters. In every calamity, it is inevitably the poor who suffer more, die more, and will continue to suffer and die after the cameras turn their gaze elsewhere. Do not be deceived by claims that everyone was affected equally -- fault lines are social as well as geological.'"
