This week on War News Radio, part three of “Narrow Passages,” War News Radio’s podcast series covering the details of the resettlement process for refugees from the Syrian war. Previous episodes looked at the big picture of resettlement as a whole process. Reporters Jake Stattel, Matthew Chaffinch, and George Menz spoke with officials from Allentown, PA, a major hub for resettlement, to understand how resettlement actually works in an American city. Take a listen!
This past September, tens of millions of Indian workers staged a one-day general strike to protest Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s economic policies. It was the biggest work stoppage in human history. Reporters Aru Shiney-Ajay and Will Marchese recap the strike and further interview Indian labor organizers and scholars.
Aquí lanzamos la segunda crónica de nuestra serie sobre la crisis migratoria en México. Esta semana, les presentamos el testimonio de Alex, un migrante hondureño que creció en Canadá. Hace ocho años fue deportado, y las consecuencias de su exilio han sido muy graves.
La primera crónica, “A la fuerza”
La tercera, “Rap salvadoreño: una manera de escuchar la historia”
This week on War News Radio, we bring you two stories from different sides of the globe. First, we check the progress of the protest movement in Hong Kong, which began last year in response to proposed changes to the electoral system. Next, “Too Close”, the story of Alex, a Honduran man who was raised in Canada, but deported, and survived kidnapping and torture this summer while attempting to return. Take a listen.
Alex’s is the second in a series of interviews we’re producing with Central American migrants crossing Mexico. You can listen to the first, “By Force,” on our website in English and Spanish. We’ve also produced a Spanish version of this story.
More stories from our series on Central American migrants:
#1: By Force/A la fuerza
#3: WNR Mixtape: Rap in El Salvador/Rap salvadoreño: una manera de escuchar la historia
Note: We believe we have resolved the technical difficulties that led to the lateness of this post. Our apologies for the delay.
This week on War News Radio, “By Force.” Reporter Liliana Frankel spent summer 2015 living and working at a migrant shelter in Oaxaca, Mexico. While she was there, she collected interviews with people passing through. This week, we hear the story of Lisandro Lopez, a Honduran veteran of the Iraq War. Lisandro’s is the first in a series of stories we’re producing from Liliana’s interviews. Take a listen.
We also recorded a version of this show in Spanish. Listen here:
