Listeners heard the shots and the cries of his colleagues before the broadcast was cut off.A frequent critic of the local authorities in his programmes, Román led a movement consisting of about 800 local farming families whose land was flooded when Picachos dam was built in Sinaloa state in 2007. He had received threats in the past in connection with his role in organizing marches and protests to demand compensation for the lost land.“We urge the authorities to conduct a thorough investigation into Atilano Román’s shocking murder and to bring those responsible to justice,” said Reporters Without Borders deputy programme director Virginie Dangles. “Murdering a presenter in a radio studio while he is on the air shows that violence against journalists knows no limits in Mexico.”In a separate development in Sinaloa state, a local magazine editor was reported missing on 13 October. Jesús Antonio Gamboa, who edited Nueva Prensa, a magazine based in the city of Ahome, was last seen in Ahome by one of his brothers on the night of 10 October, his family said. The Sinaloa state prosecutor’s office has begun an investigation into his disappearance.Mexico is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

first_img Organisation February 24, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists and environmental activists in danger to go further PhilippinesAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders called today on the Philippines government to move quickly to protect journalists from increasing death threats against those reporting on corruption and environmental abuses, a month after the murder of Radio Mindanao Network (RMN) dwAR commentator Gerardo Ortega.It urged President Benigno Aquino III to keep his promise to fight crimes against the media and punish those responsible.Since the death on 24 January of Ortega, who had exposed corruption and also environmental damage by mining companies on the island of Palawan, four suspected gunmen have reportedly been arrested and police have learned that their bosses were powerful figures, including former Palawan governor Joel Reyes, who has ties with the mining firms.Two other Palawan journalists, who prefer to remain anonymous for security reasons, say they have been personally threatened by those presumed to have killed Ortega. Three more journalists have said in a letter to the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) they have received regular death threats since last month. The three — George Hubierna, a reporter with the People’s Journal and People’s Tonight based in Manila, Nelson Bolos, a journalist-researcher with the same papers, and Paul Gonzales, editor of Tarlac Headline News – have reported on corruption in the building of an expressway in Tarlac, about 100 km from Manila, and the threats referred to this. Four journalists were murdered last year in the Philippines, where many powerful people have local fiefdoms that are above the law, and 30 were killed in a massacre there in November 2009.

first_imgAndrew Burton/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Leaders of the Oglala Sioux Tribe have told South Dakota’s governor that she is no longer welcome to visit their land after signing two bills into law regulating protests over the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.In a May 2 letter sent to Governor Kristi Noem, tribe president Julian Bear Runner said that “pursuant to unanimous Oglala Sioux Tribal Council Action as of May 1, 2019”, the Republican governor was “not welcome” to visit their home on the Pine Ridge Reservation in Southwestern South Dakota until she rescinds support for the two laws.The reservation is located on “a swath of land the size of Delaware and Rhode Island combined,” according to a news release from the Lakota People’s Law Project.The bills, SB 189 and SB 190, were introduced by Noem and signed into law on March 27, according to a news release from the State of South Dakota. SB 189 created a fund to recover damages from third parties “to offset costs incurred by riot boosting.” According to the law, someone is responsible for riot boosting if that person participates in a riot or “directs, advises, encourages, or solicits other persons participating in the riot to acts of force or violence.”SB 190 was created to establish a Pipeline Engagement Activity Coordination Expenses (PEACE) fund to pay for administrative costs and “extraordinary expenses,” which are costs that come as a result of “opposition to a project that would not have been incurred but for pipeline construction” and can cover the performance of law enforcement officers, functions arising from pipeline construction, and prosecution of criminal offenses.In a May 2 letter sent to Governor Kristi Noem, tribe president Julian Bear Runner said that “pursuant to unanimous Oglala Sioux Tribal Council Action as of May 1, 2019”, the Republican governor was “not welcome” to visit their home on the Pine Ridge Reservation in Southwestern South Dakota until she rescinds support for the two laws.The reservation is located on “a swath of land the size of Delaware and Rhode Island combined,” according to a news release from the Lakota People’s Law Project.The bills, SB 189 and SB 190, were introduced by Noem and signed into law on March 27, according to a news release from the State of South Dakota.

He said the governor’s recent visits, the new laws, and her consulting with TransCanada pushed the tribe to make a decision.Iron Eyes said he does not recall a situation where a sitting governor or elected official had been banned from the reservation, and that the tribal council never deliberated banishment and does not expect it to reach that point.The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of South Dakota had filed a federal lawsuit in April over three South Dakota laws dealing with protests, including the law on riot boosting. The lawsuit said the laws “violate the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution by targeting and chilling protected speech, and by failing to adequately describe what speech or conduct could subject protesters and organizations to criminal and civil penalties,” according to the ACLU.In South Dakota, rioting is a Class 4 felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Encouraging or soliciting violence in a riot is a Class 2 felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison, and encouraging a riot without participating is a Class 5 felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison.The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would transport crude oil from Hardisty, Alberta, in Canada, south to Steele City, Nebraska, running through the province of Saskatchewan and the states of Montana and South Dakota.Though the Obama administration rejected the pipeline proposal in 2015, President Donald Trump reversed that decision in 2017. A federal judge in Montana then blocked the reversal in November 2018 because the Trump administration had “ignored information about the pipeline’s environmental impact,” though Trump issued a new permit for construction in March.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgABC News(BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn.) — The mother of Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot dead by a Minnesota police officer at a traffic stop, said she “wants 100% accountability” in the wake of the officer’s arrest.“If that even happens, we’re still going to bury our son,” Wright’s mother, Katie Wright, said at a Thursday news conference. “We’re still never going to be able to see our baby boy.”“There’s never gonna be justice for us,” she added.“I have anger, hatred, sadness,” Katie Wright told ABC News Thursday. “You have so many feelings.”Daunte Wright was shot by Brooklyn Center police officer Kim Potter on Sunday when the veteran officer allegedly mistook her gun for a Taser, according to the former police chief.“My son was a good young man,” his father, Aubrey Wright, said at the news conference. “We were building my son up to be somebody.”“The way he was killed, he did not deserve that,” he said.Potter was charged Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter.“It’s very difficult for this family to accept that this is an accident when you have a veteran [Potter] who has been on the police force for 26 years,” Ben Crump, an attorney representing the Wright family, said at the news conference.“It was over-policing. It was excessive use of force,” Crump said. “Because we have a propensity in America to over-police marginalized minorities — especially Black men.”He continued, “Why don’t they deescalate when there’s so many Black people who are unarmed?”The shooting unfolded Sunday afternoon, after Potter and an officer she was training pulled Daunte Wright over for an expired registration tag on his car, and then determined during the stop that he had an outstanding gross misdemeanor warrant, then-Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon said Tuesday.When the officers tried to take Daunte Wright into custody, he got back into the car, police said. Potter then announced that she would use the taser on the 20-year-old, according to the Washington County Attorney’s Office.Potter pointed her handgun at Daunte Wright, “saying again that she would tase him,” prosecutors said in a statement Wednesday. “Potter said ‘Taser, Taser, Taser,’ and pulled the trigger on her handgun.”After firing, Potter said, “S—, I just shot him!” according to prosecutors.“Y’all see the difference,” Daunte Wright’s aunt, Naisha Wright, said at the family news conference, holding photos of the taser and the gun next to each other.“My nephew was killed with this: a Glock,” she said.“All we ask for is, please … help us to go ahead and get something done, a conviction,” she said.Potter made her first appearance in court on Thursday afternoon. She is set to return to court on May 17.Potter and Gannon have submitted their resignations.ABC News’ Stephanie Wash, Stephanie Ramos, Chris Donato and Rachel Katz contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
