(es) ¿Hay las noticias recientes sobre Lenin Cali Najera?
Somehow we all forgot that brad will is the second indymedia
journalist to be killed for his media activities (in fact, the second
in latin america), not the first, and we have no idea as a network
(so far, anyway) whether there was an enquiry, etc. etc.
For people who forgot:
Google, about 800 days after lenin cali najera's assassination:
Results 1 - 10 of about 934 for Lenin Cali Najera.
Google, 4 days after brad will's assassination:
Results 1 - 10 of about 223,000 for "brad will" oaxaca indymedia.
200 times more links for brad will than for lenin cali najera, in 200
times *shorter* period. i'm not blaming anyone, just documenting the
i see two reasonable possibilities about how www-features can make a
small effort to try to correct this, one fairly easy and quick, one
which would require waiting for update info from IMC Ecuador.
OPTION (1) Add a link to the article 849702:
"Protests supporting Oaxaca held all over the world":
<p><strong>OTHER INDYMEDIA ACTIVIST KILLED:</strong>
<a href="http://www.indymedia.org/or/2004/07/111397.shtml">Lenin Cali
This link would be to the pt/fr/es translations of 111397 for the
pt/fr/es versions of 849702 and translated into pt/fr/es, and english
for Ayuujk - i don't think one link in english can hurt, so this would
keep the translations consistent (even if not perfect).
OPTION (2) Ask imc ecuador if they could give us an update and then we
do a feature on this.
OPTION (1) would have to be done quickly before people keep adding
more translations, but i know that at least it's something i know how
to do and can do. (And i know that gdm doesn't like this option :P.)
OPTION (2) would require more patience. It would be best that someone
speaking spanish contact cmi ecuador (guayaquil) people.
What do people think?
