2 Indymedia journalists detained in Argentina on Nov. 4
05 Nov 2005
Urgent: two journalists detained in the repression by the police in Mar del Plata
The Alternative Media Network of Buenos Aires, Argentina
November 4th, 2005
Journalists Fernando Catz and Roger Sampedro, both with Indymedia, are among the 87 persons detained by the Federal Police during the repression unleashed this afternoon against Anti-Bush demonstrators.

We ask our fellow journalists to urgently disseminate this news by way of agencies, newspapers and websites in order to facilitate getting information on their location and to call for their release.

It is vital for all of those detained that the press take notice of them because in these past few years there have been scores of cases of misconduct, abuse and torture at the hands of the police in Argentina.

Noviembre 4, 2005

Los periodistas Fernando Catz y Roger Sampedro, ambos del sitio Indymedia, forman parte de los 87 detenidos por la Policía Federal durante la represión desatada esta tarde contra manifestantes Anti-Bush.

Les pedimos a nuestros compañeros periodistas la urgente difusión de esta noticia – por agencias, diarios, páginas web -para facilitar obtener las noticias sobre su paradero y reclamar su liberación.

Resulta vital para todos los detenidos que la prensa se ocupe de ellos ya que nuestro país registra, en los últimos años, sobrados casos de maltratos, torturas e irregularidades por parte de la Policía.

I saw pictures and live footage. The protesters in Argentina were lighting fires and throwing bombs. That is hardly "being repressed."
We need more of this.

As for "being repressed," arresting journalists for covering an event is repression.

Oh sorry. I didn't realize you meant ONLY the two indymedia journalists were being repressed and taking their "plight" to this server.

I thought this article distinctly said that 2 indymedia journalists were "detained in the repression" signifying that the Argentinians themselves were being repressed and that indymedia journalists were tangentally affected. Whereas in reality a group of professional anarchists were committing arson and throwing bombs as clearly captured on film.

Pardon me for confusing the obviously clear and accurate portrayal of events above.

Arrest is the price that one pays...and even welcomes... for Civil Disobedience. Enjoy your stay in Argentina.
