Climate Radio is back!

For three months from May to July, Climate Radio will follow the story
of the emerging global deal on climate change. Although the deal will
be finalised at the United Nations talks in Copenhagen in December,
many of the critical decisions are being made right now. While the
scientists throw up their hands in a show of resignation and activists
prepare to take their message to the streets, most of the nation lies
sleeping. Don't let your listeners sleep through it!

The Copenhagen talks are the most important talks ever convened by
mankind and this story is no less than than the story of whether
mankind manages to get its act together to save itself.

"The 300-350 Show" is made for Resonance104.4FM in London and is
syndicated free to not-for-profit community radio stations and
independent media outlets around the globe.

Each programme is half an hour long. The series started on 7 May with
a stop-gap programme (featuring George Monbiot, Caroline Lucas, et al
recorded at the launch of the "Climate Safety" report last Autumn) and
the series proper starts this Thursday 14 May.

Please contact producer, Phil England, directly if you would like to
broadcast these programmes: 020 8376 2460;

ZIMBABWE: Laws used to "criminalise journalism", minister

HARARE, 12 May 2009 (IRIN) - A senior Zimbabwean government official has
admitted that laws passed by the previous administration were still being
used to "criminalise journalism" and needed to be changed, after two
journalists more were arrested earlier this week.

"The developments are really unfortunate, in the sense that we still have
clauses in our statutes which are used to arrest journalists and
criminalise journalism, and hence infringe on media freedom and freedom
of expression," Jameson Timba, the deputy minister of media, information
and publicity, told IRIN. Timba is from the main faction of the Movement
for Democratic Change (MDC) the former opposition party.

Vincent Kahiya, editor of the Zimbabwe Independent newspaper, and
Constantine Chimakure, the newspaper's news editor, were arrested on 11
May for publishing an article that fingered intelligence and police
officers allegedly involved in the abduction of journalist and human
rights activist, Jestina Mukoko, and members of the MDC in late 2008.

Kahiya and Chimakure were released on bail on 12 May, but a police
spokesperson was quoted in the media as saying that the journalists had
sought to "undermine public confidence in law enforcement and security

Dumisani Muleya, a senior political reporter, told IRIN: "Journalists
continue to be harassed and to work in a repressive environment, which
means nothing has really changed since the inclusive government was
formed almost 100 days ago."

Timba underlined the need to review existing media laws, which had been
the objective of a conference held on 9 May. However, the gathering was
boycotted by media unions after Mukoko and freelance journalist Andrison
Manyere were arrested for the second time last week. Mukoko has since
been released.

Under the Global Political Agreement signed by Zimbabwe's three main
political parties in September 2008, which underpins the unity
government, the government committed itself to immediately start
processing applications for the registration of media houses, but not
much has happened so far.

Two other journalists, the editor of the government-controlled The Sunday
News, Brezhnev Malaba, and journalist Nduduzo Tshuma, are also expected
to appear in court soon to face criminal defamation charges, after naming
senior police officers allegedly involved in a grain distribution scandal
in a report published in 2008.

The media reform conference, which recommended that the draconian media
laws be repealed, and that parliament control the public media, was
overshadowed by the arrest of the journalists.

The Zimbabwe Union of Journalists commented: "The irony is that the
manhunt for journalists at The Zimbabwe Independent was launched on the
day" that the conference on media law reform got underway.

Call for Papers

Research Stream
Community Broadcasting Association of Australia National Conference
Brisbane Hilton, 19-22 November 2009

Community Innovators
Some of the most important innovations in electronic media have emanated from the community broadcasting sector. In Australia these include major technological gains in the efficient use of radiofrequency spectrum (for example the opening up of the FM band, and the development of sub-carrier and low-power broadcasting systems and applications). They have also included new ways of producing media derived from increased opportunities for access media and communication resources, and a narrowing of the gap between media producer and consumer. But community broadcasting's major contribution to innovation has been in supporting the diversification of ideas and practices of community. In all of these respects the Australian community broadcasting movement has historically anticipated many aspects of new media culture. As the community broadcasting sector now transitions from analogue to digital transmission platforms the research stream of the 2009 national conference of Community Broadcasting Association of Australia provides a forum for considering how community broadcasting continues to work as a site of innovation. What is happening to the community broadcasting resource? How is it continuing to be used to support community innovators and innovate community?

Papers are invited on (but not limited to) the following themes:

* Going digital
* Packaging for multiplatform environments
* Community broadcasting as social media
* Using open source systems, applications and strategies for organizational adaptation
* Managing copyright and using Creative Commons
* Collaborative and co-creative production
* Knowledge transfer, training and production practices
* International developments in community broadcasting and 'new' media.
Contributions from a range of disciplinary, interdisciplinary and theoretical perspectives in the humanities, social sciences, applied arts and sciences are welcome. Abstracts for proposed papers, up to 200 words in length, should reach the Research Stream Coordinator by Monday 13 July 2009: Christina Spurgeon -<>

Full papers will be considered for publication in 3CMedia: Journal of Community, Citizen's and Third Sector Media and Communication (see

For information about the CBAA National Conference (including registration details) please visit the conference pages on the CBAA website:
