Vista On-Line

May 2003 edition

Vol.2, Issue 4

Dear friends and listeners,

This month we are going to be sending out three parts to our Vista Online as we have been so very busy and we know that we have missed out a month! Included in this initial section is an article written by Jean Parker who represented RFPI at the AMARC conference in Nepal in February 2003.

Here at the station, the Peace Journalism and Progressive Media Through Radio courses are continuing as RFPI works towards adding as many non-embedded journalists to the world's media as possible. Action around the station is intense as June begins, bringing a whole host of new people, students and volunteers into the station.

We would like to welcome Emily Morales onto the RFPI staff as Operations Manager this month. She brings us vast business, educational and administrative experience and is a welcome addition to the team.

Our Program Director, Naomi Fowler, went to Nicaragua last month and amongst other things helped deliver a production workshop and give a talk on RFPI in Managua. For the report on her trip, see Part Two of the newsletter coming your way soon!

Four staff members from RFPI last month visited and spoke with the Huetar indigenous people in the local area by the radio station. We are going to work with them in setting up a community radio station starting with an experimental weekend of broadcasting next month to generate interest in the community and involve as many people in the area as possible. We also plan to work with them in an oral history project and a project to conserve their language, which is dying out.

As you may have heard, Radio For Peace International has started up a 15 minute daily news broadcast focusing on freedom of expression news from around the world as well as events in Central America, a region which seems to be off the radar of most media organizations. It is broadcast Monday to Friday at 21.30 UTC and it is the beginning of a greater focus on in-house programming regularly coming your way at RFPI.

NEEDED!!! Computers/lap tops of 400 Mhz or more with a minimum hard drive capacity of 10GB. Studio and hand held microphones, headphones.
