"Birmania VJ: Informando desde un país cerrado"

Burma_vjweb2

Escuche/Vea/Lea (en inglés)

Mientras la líder birmana a favor de la democracia Aung San Suu Kyi es sometida a juicio, emitimos fragmantos de un premiado documental sobre los medios activistas de Birmania y los grandes riesgos a los que se exponen los ciudadanos-periodistas para enviar información sobre su país hacia afuera. El documental sigue a un colectivo "clandestino" de video-periodistas llamado La voz democrática de Birmania (DVB, por sus siglas en inglés), que envía de manera clandestina informes de Birmania a Noruega, desde donde son emitidos a todo el mundo.
