Rosario Indymedia (Argentina) journalist attacked

24-06-2005 07:57

Ernesto Torres, a journalist with Free Air Community Radio and Indymedia Rosario, was attached by members of the Movimiento Barrios de Pie while providing coverage to a march in opposition to the regime of current [Argentinian] president Néstor Kirchner. The unfortunate event took place Monday, June 20, at midday, during a presidential visit to the city of Rosario related to flag-day festivities. First, militants of the Barrios de Pie organization - allied to the national government - used sticks to attack members of organizations of unemployed persons and human rights organizations who were carrying out a protest a few blocks away from the official ceremony. Ernesto Torres was the only journalist present and he was taking pictures of the attacks when he was brutally struck in the head with a stick. Next his camera was stolen and he was thrown to the ground, where a mob repeatedly kicked him.
