La insurreción de abril en Nicaragua // The April Insurrection in Nicaragua, 2018 : Indybay:

// LISTEN HERE //

There is a new cycle of social movement in Nicaragua called the April Insurrection, or la insurrección de abril. It is the biggest uprising since the civil war ended in 1990.

The movement ignited on April 18th, 2018 when Nicaraguans took to the streets to protest a more narrow issue- President Ortega had proposed social security reforms that would raise income and payroll taxes while reducing pension benefits.

Demonstrators opposing this change were met with intense violence from authorities, followed by deployment of the Nicaraguan army ordered by President Ortega. The violent response set off a ripple effect, as students and other groups across the country raised voices against governmental repression and censorship of dissent, as well as violations of human rights.

I was joined in conversation shortly after the April Insurrection began by WTUL affiliate Alexandra, who has family on the ground in Nicaragua, and Dr. Pamela Neumann, a post doctoral fellow at Tulane University in the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. Dr. Neumann did her P.H.D. in Sociology at the University of Texas in Austin and has a masters in Latin American Studies. She currently does research on gender based violence and feminist activism in Nicaragua.

We talked through this social movement- what led up to and where it’s headed- as well as the role of social media and technology in civil unrest and student movements.

Some suggestions on where to learn more/stay updated:

Keyboard ist keinesfalls gleich Keyboard. Insbesondere für den Fall, dass Sie turnusmäßig spielen, ist es wesentlich, dass Sie das Instrument erwerben, das Ihnen langanhaltend Freude macht und motiviert.

Dies Spielgefühl ist hierbei ein wichtiger Faktor. Dieses Spielgefühl mag mehrfach bestimmen, inwiefern Sie auf lange Sicht Freude am Spielen haben werden. Beachtenswerte Faktoren, auf die Sie beim Kauf des Keyboards achten müssen:

In der Auswahl der Keyboards gibt es bereits in der grundlegenden Ausstattung jede Menge Unterschiede. So sollte das Gerät unbedingt einen Umfang von fünf Oktaven bieten.

Außerdem sollten die Tasten mitnichten zu schmal oder zu kurz sein. Dies wird speziell Neulingen das Erlernen des Keyboards erleichtern.

Achten Sie gleichermaßen darauf, dass die Oberfläche der Keyboardtasten so hergestellt wurde, dass Sie keinesfalls abrutschen.

Bei Ihrer Suche sollten Sie des Weiteren beachten, dass die Lautsprecher Ihres Keyboards hochwertig sind, damit der Klang des Keyboards auch langanhaltend gut klingt und mit der Zeit nicht schlechter wird.

Achten sie darauf, dass das Gerät über jegliche Anschlussmöglichkeiten verfügt, die heute zum Standard gehören. Ein USB-Anschluss ist dieser Tage Norm bei zahlreichen Keyboards und ermöglicht es Ihnen, neue Klänge einzuspielen, sowie Dateien in das Keyboard zu laden. Es ermöglicht obendrein, eigene Sounds einzuspielen und diese auf dem Rechner zu speichern.

Wichtig ist gleichwohl eine Klinkenbuchse, um dort einen Kopfhörer anzuschließen. Dies hat den Pluspunkt, dass Sie auch in der Nacht trainieren können, ohne dass andere Menschen senkrecht in den Betten stehen (und beileibe nicht mitsingen).

Benötigen Sie Zusatzfunktionen, beispielsweise die Möglichkeit des Live-Einsatzes und unterschiedliche Sounds, greifen Sie besser zu einem Instrument der Profi-Klasse.

The radio station is falling apart. Because of the broken machines, the broadcast is constantly interrupted to the point y'all are unlistenable. I donated $225 to this year's Marathon, where did that money go? Having working CD players is paramount to having a radio station. Until WTUL replaces those broken machines, I have to listen to other stations, and that sucks!

Wow WTUL, I'm embarrassed for yall today :( The DJ on air at the 9:30am air break (interrupting Democracy Now) made a total ass of himself, whining about how we aren't listening to HIM comment on the news. Meanwhile he's interrupting the family of the man killed by police in Baton Rouge earlier this week, as well as other folks connected to that story. I think it is obvious why we have compelling interviews with folks who are relevant to the news instead of an irrelevant angry man-child like Jimmy Huck. Presumably this only happened because of some kind of summertime staffing shortage, but still, we the listeners deserve better. When the airwaves aren't being hijacked by pathetic figures like him, WTUL is still one of the best radio stations in New Orleans. But please don't ruin it, and don't like people like this go on the mic nonstop, interrupting a really important story like that of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge.

A deep dish of gratitude to WTUL for playing our new record MAXWELL, MUHLY & COULOIR...many times :) COULOIR has been to New Orleans and Baton Rogue before and you're inspiring us to come back, if for no other reason to stop by the station and meet you! You now have my ear :)
