Two community radio reporters could be tried for “disobeying the authorities”

first_imgNews RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America A judge will decide on 11 January whether community radio reporters Elia Xiomara Hernández and Elba Yolibeth Rubio are to be tried on charges of disobeying the authorities and “taking part in demonstrations that obstruct public services.” That was the outcome of judicial proceedings in the southern town of Amapala in which their rights were not respected.Hernández and Rubio, who work for radio La Voz de Zacate Grande, were arrested on 15 December while covering a protest by a family being evicted from land it had occupied in the locality of Coyolito on the southern island of Zacate Grande.At the moment of their arrest, they produced documents showing that they are journalists. They were nonetheless held illegally for 36 hours without being told the charges and without being allowed to make any phone calls. They were hit and they were denied medical treatment. Their equipment was also confiscated. And they are currently prohibited from leaving the districts where they live.“We deplore the decision to prosecute two journalists who were just doing their job and committed no crime, and we urge the authorities to drop all the charges,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Covering a protest is not the same as participating in it. We also demand that they be compensated for the suffering resulting from this arbitrary arrest. And those responsible for the violence against them must be called to account.”All the legal procedures have been violated in this case. They were not taken before the judge, Eris Armando Hernández, until 24 hours had gone by since their arrest. This normally results in all charges being dropped. Also, the local judicial authorities cannot initiate prosecutions. That is the prosecutor-general’s prerogative.In a separate development, the Inter-American Court of Human Rights issued a ruling on 22 December requiring the Honduran government to protect journalist José Luis Galdámez, who has escaped several murder attempts and has received many death threats designed to make him abandon his work. Galdámez is the producer of “Tras la Verdad,” a programme on Radio Globo that has criticised President José Manuel Zelaya’s removal in a June 2009 coup. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Follow the news on Honduras HondurasAmericas HondurasAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace”center_img Receive email alerts Reports Help by sharing this information to go further April 27, 2021 Find out more Organisation December 27, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two community radio reporters could be tried for “disobeying the authorities” News December 28, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Turkuaz’s Shira Elias Joins Marc Brownstein’s Star Kitchen In Fairfield [Audio]

first_imgAt the first weekend of Electric Forest, the Disco Biscuits’ bassist Marc Brownstein debuted a brand-new side project dubbed Star Kitchen. In November, the relatively new project made its inaugural run with a mini East Coast tour.The band–consisting of Brownstein, guitarist Danny Mayer (Eric Krasno Band), keyboardist Rob Marscher (Addison Groove Project), and drummer Marlon Lewis (Lauryn Hill & John Legend)–played a two-night run over the weekend, as the four-piece first welcomed Pigeons Playing Ping Pong guitarist Jeremy Schon at Baltimore’s 8×10 on Friday night.On Saturday night, the quartet performed at Fairfield, CT’s FTC StageOne, welcoming up Turkuaz vocalist Shira Elias for portions of their two-set show. Star Kitchen opened up the first set with Kool & The Gang’s “Let The Music Take Your Mind”, followed by Bob James’ “Nautilus” and Jimmy Smith’s “Root Down”. The four-piece then charged through a cover of James Brown’s “Soul Power”, before inviting Elias out on vocals to help them close their first set with takes on Stevie Wonder’s “Living For The City” Rufus & Chaka Khan’s “You Got The Love”.Following a brief setbreak, Star Kitchen came back out with Elias to work through funky renditions of J.J. Cale’s “After Midnight”, followed by Sly & The Family Stone’s “Sing A Simple Song”. The band thanked Elias as they hopped back into things as a four-piece, delivering covers of Billy Cobham’s “Red Baron”, The Stylistics’ “People Make The World Go Round”, “Walkin’ Sally”, and a set closing rendition of Grant Green’s “Jan Jan”. A take on Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison” served as the evening’s encore.Luckily, you can listen to a full-show audio recording of Saturday night’s Star Kitchen show below:Star Kitchen – 1/5/2019 (Full-Show Audio)[Audio: Eric McRoberts]Setlist: Star Kitchen | FTC StageOne | Fairfield, CT | 1/5/2018Set One: Let The Music Take Your Mind, Nautilus -> Root Down -> Soul Power, Living For The City*, You Got The Love*Set Two: After Midnight* -> Sing A Simple Song *, Red Baron, People Make The World Go Round, Walkin’ Sally, Jan JanEncore: Poison* – w/ Shira Eliaslast_img read more
