Miedo en el Índico

Casi dos años después del secuestro del atunero vasco Alakrana en el Oceáno Índico por parte de piratas somalíes, recogemos decenas de testimonios procedentes del ámbito de la política, marineros secuestrados (tanto del Alakrana, como de los otros dos casos de buques españoles secuestrados: Playa de Baquio y Albacora IV), miembros de la seguridad, abogados marítimos… incluso conversamos con presos encarcelados por acciones de piratería. En 40 minutos, viajamos a todas las zonas clave de Seychelles, Kenia, Somalia y España para recoger todos los puntos de vista sobre la piratería en el Índico.

Ruanda, 20 años después del infierno

De la mano de Telesur, visitamos Ruanda en el 20 aniversario de uno de los genocidios más salvajes que se recuerdan, el que sucedió en 1994. Nos remontamos a los orígenes, la época precolonial, la influencia de Bélgica y las distintas oleadas violentas entre tutsis y hutus potenciadas por Occidente. Hablamos con supervivientes de 1994 y relatamos los 100 días de horror que comenzaron en Kigali con el asesinato del presidente hutu, Juvenal Habyarimana, nos trasladamos a Bélgica, donde se refugia gran parte de la oposición al actual Gobierno ruandés. Y analizamos la tensa calma que existe actualmente en Ruanda.

Basque Country: scars of a conflict

The Basque Country or Euskadi or Euskal Herria in the Basque language, is a land of rain, of green hills and majestic beaches. The Basque community has a long history and a language, Euskera, whose origin is a mystery. Today it is a modern society famous for haute cuisine. It has well developed industries that contribute in an important way to the Spanish economy. Two years after ETA announced a ceasefire, we visit the region in the north of Spain to speak to the people. We want to talk with those who have experienced the consequences of the conflict firsthand. In these times of peace we want to know if the wounds have started to heal. This documentary is done for teleSUR.

The poor memory of Spain

2015 marked forty years since the death of Dictator Francisco Franco yet Spain still has not settled its pending debt with the victims of the dictatorship. The collective amnesia and little political will since the time of transition to democracy has left thousands of victims buried in roadside ditches and mass graves that are yet to be opened up. Hardly 200 of over 2,000 mass graves have been opened.
IN 2007, the socialist government under Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero passed the so called ‘Law on remembrance’ which, although deemed ‘insufficient’ by many political and interest groups, included the recognition of all the victims of the Spanish civil war (1936 – 1939) and of the subsequent dictatorship by Francisco Franco (1939 – 1975). When the right wing came into power, the Popular Party government did not destine any money to this law which was equivalent to its de facto derogation. Prime Minister Rajoy asserted that ‘the law on remembrance is of no interest to anyone’.
This documentary done for teleSUR will try to uncover the political interests and Franco’s legacy that still holds sway in Spain 40 years later. As a consequence several victims have not been yet been recognized as such and there is no attempt to uncover the whole truth about events in those years. As long what really happened is not unearthed and light shed on it, thousands of victims and their families will not have been accorded the justice they deserve.
