CISPES observers at Salvadoran Elections 2014

Sat, 01 Feb 2014 14:59:00 +0000

23 Mb  18 minutes

Carl and Carolyne are in El Salvador with the 70 person strong CISPES delegation of observers for the 2014 elections in El Salvador. Carl has been with CISPES almost since its inception over twenty years ago. Carolyne is part of a new generation that sees the work of CISPES as a shared pathway between cultures and generations.

The history of El Salvador has been narrated as a history of violence. Nothing in that particular narrative includes the history of US intervention, the history of the US training of the worst perpetrators of violence, the agenda that agencies within the US Government see as the supervening  business interests that require the reorganization of the 'State' to their own requirements.  CISPES has succeeded in changing the course of the JUggernaut.

CISPES, Carl, and Carolyne demonstrate just how false that narrative is. And they tell us now, just how they did it. Can their example follow ?

(CISPES has called what amounts to an apology from the former US Ambassador to El Salvador)

Watch El Salvador, and watch with care

Rodolfo Pacheco, un maestro Mexicano explica el como y el porque de las protestas de los maestros. LOs maestros han occupado el Zocalo desde hace 5 meses protestando una ley de 'Reforma Educativa'. Los maestro dicen que es mas una ley de reforma laboral porque obliga a los maestros a someterse a una evaluacion para seguir trabajando en su profesion.

En la segunda semana de Septiembre se pasaron la ley, y los maestros cerraron el centro de Ciudad Mexico, y hubo enfrentamientos con la policia. El viernes fueron desalojados del Zocalo. Los maestros se han ubicado en otros lugares, y siguen con sus desfiles.

Rudolfo Pacheco, a Mexican Philosophy teacher explains the whys and wherefores of the Mexican teachers' protests. The teachers have occupied the Zocalo for over 5 months in protest against 'Educational Reform' legislation, claiming that it is more about labor reform than educational reform, because it requires the teachers to undergo periodic evaluation to continue working in their profession.

In the second week of September the legislation was passed, and the teachers shut down the centre of Mexico City with confrontations with the police. On Friday they were evicted from the Zocalo and they have relocated to other public locations in the city, and are continuing with their protest marches.

Grahame makes the point that this is a ground breaking trial as it implicates the current President of Guatemala who was a major in the Guatemalan Armed Forces at the time the human rights abuses and the genocide was peaking. Alan Nairn, a journalist who filmed current President Otto Perez Molina gloating over the bodies of villagers suspected of being supporters of the guerilla forces was blocked from presenting evidence at the trial.

Honduras Revolutionary Musician - Pavel Nunez Duarte and 'Cafe Guancasco'

Fri, 04 Jan 2013 21:28:00 +0000

10MB stereo 10 minutes.

Pavel Nunez Duarte, Honduras'  revolutionary musican and songwriter, of the top selling band 'Cafe Guancasco' talks to community radio about how politics informs their music. A teacher of mathematics, a student organiser, and now active in the Resistance Front of Honduras against the coup, he finds music is 'another language', his guitar 'a megaphone' to communicate the social realities of Honduras. He can't say how he 'came to be involved in politics' because it has always been part of his life. It is more a question of why he can't leave it !  A revealing interview in which even the explanation of 'Guancasco' has a social import. A 'Guancasco, he says, is a gathering , or get together of people in an indigenous community. You don't get that, in the cities but, he explains, in urban communities around the world you have 'Cafes' . Hence the name  - a blend of the modern and the traditional, the regional and the global.

Timor Media - Interview with Jose Belo

Fri, 14 Sep 2012 01:54:00 +0000

46.3 Mb.  51 minutes

Jose Belo is a Timorese man who perhaps represents the highest values of journalism. Active in the Timorese resistance movement against the Indonesian occupation, he was a critical factor in enabling those few independent Australian journalists who contrived to work in Timor Leste (legendary journalists like John Martinkus, Max Stahl, and others) to gather critical information about the Indonesian occupation, and to get that information out.  He was captured and tortured by the Indonesians 7 times, continuing to work in Timor even though he had the opportunity to live in exile in Australia.

After Timorese independence he became a journalist, still maintaining a critical and independent attitude to successive governments of Timor Leste. One year he was threatened with house arrest when he accused a government minister of corruption. He is currently the editor of "Tempo Semanal", a weekly publication that is one of the most influential in the country, still attacking the government on issues of corruption and misspending of state finances. 

He was involved in the making of the film Balibo, and more recently, the subject of a more recent film ('Breaking the news') about to be released exposing the behaviour and role of some foreign journalists working in Timor Leste whose ethical and professional standards do not perhaps, match up to Jose's own.

In this interview he talks about his values as a journalist, why he became a journalist, how he became a journalist, and the values that inform his work.

Timorese Police Chief under pressure. NGO watchdog backgrounds him. Interview with Fundasaun Mahein

Wed, 12 Sep 2012 06:57:00 +0000

8.2 Mb. 8 minutes 45 seconds (stereo)

Head of the PNTL (Timorese National Police), Longhuino Monteiro has been called on to resign for a series of incidents involving 'missing' weapons over several years. The most recent is the disappearance of a high powered automatic weapon, with 60 rounds of ammunition from the car of the head of Police Intelligence while it was parked outside a brothel. Longuino dismissed this as 'not a problem  - a single weapon is not a threat to public security'. But this, and other weapons that have gone missing over the years is, according to the NGO Fundasaun Mahein a flaw in the PNTL that Monteiro has not addressed.

Fundasaun Mahein (Guardian Foundation) is an NGO that evolved as a watchdog research organisation concerned with issues of public security out of the destabilising conflicts of 2006 and 2007, that involved elements of both the Timorese Police and the the Timorese Armed Forces, who at times were involved in armed conflict against each other.

Charles Scheiner and Juvenal are researchers for the Lao Hamutuk ("Walking Together) NGO in Timor Leste. For many years Lao Hamatuk has been monitoring the governance of Timor Leste. Among other things, they look at how TL spends its oil revenues, which come from exporting the nonrenewable oil and gas reserves under the Timor Sea. Returns on investing the Petroleum Fund are only about one-tenth of the royalties and revenues paid by oil companies. As the oil and gas reserves are depleted, and oil revenues fall, investment returns will not be nearly enough to sustaining TL's state spending.At the time of the 2012 general elections they are particularly critical of the government of the past five years, and concerned that the incoming government review its spending priorities.

Three days after the 2012 general election results it was still unclear how the new government would be formed. Neither of the two major parties had a clear majority. The governing CNRT could either form a coalition government with the two minor parties, or a government of National Unity with Fretilin. Speculation was rife. At this time Mari Alkatiri, the General Secretary of Fretilin granted an exclusive interview with an Australian media team, where he referred to the events of 2006 that led to the destabilisation of his government and forced his resignation from the position of Prime Minister.

Bob Boughton was in Timor Leste to observe the elections. At the time of the interview it was uncertain whether the former CNRT government (which obtained the highest vote, but not an absolute majority) would create a coalition with the Democratic Party (with several of its Ministers under investigation for corruption), or form a Government of National Unity with the Fretilin Party.

While the interview was taking the place the CNRT was holding a televised Assembly. At the end of the day it recommended against forming a government with Fretilin. It is expected that Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao will ratify that decision,but not entirely certain; but a new government cannot be declared until the President, Tau Matan Ruak returns from a trip to Mozambique.

Guatemalan Elections - The Death Squad Candidate? Jennifer Harbury speaks out. (English Language)

Thu, 04 Aug 2011 05:17:00 +0000

24.5 Mb mono. 17 minutes, 48 secondes (Note, there is some noise interference about two thirds of the way into the interview0 Former Guatemalan General Otto Perez Molina was in Washington last May seeking approval and support for his Presidential aspirations. He is expected to win the Guatemalan elections scheduled for September this year. Perez Molina is a graduate of the US “School of the Americas” Military Academy. He was also the head of the notorious Guatemalan D2 Intelligence Unit that was responsible for the disappearances and torture of thousands during the 1980s and 1990s ‘counterinsurgency campaigns’ in Guatemala, during which over 200,000 mainly indigenous people were massacred. US citizen Human Rights lawyer Jennifer Harbury whose Guatemalan husband was one of the victims of the D2 intelligence unit, is a co-signatory of a document filed with the UN rapporteur Torture calling for Perez Molina to be put on trial for war crimes. Jennifer has spent the last twenty years accumulating evidence that Perez Molina and others were not only complicit in abduction, torture, and genocide, but that the CIA had illegally withheld documents which demonstrated its complicity in these acts. Jennifer is seeking an end to the impunity of those responsible for gross human rights violations through the Guatemalan legal system and the United Nations. But before discussin[...]
