Fonografia Collective
[via: ]

"Fonografia Collective believes in empathetic and culturally-sensitive documentary storytelling about everyday people around the world. We find and craft compelling stories about human rights, politics, the environment, and social issues (or any combination thereof) and share them with the general public using radio, oral histories, photography, the printed word, multimedia, public installations, gatherings and events.

Since 2005, we've been working together to advance our vision of a more inclusive and diverse approach to nonfiction storytelling, focusing on communities across the U.S. and Latin America that are often underrepresented or misunderstood by the mainstream media or the public. As consultants with a variety of institutions, nonprofits, and individuals, we strive to do the same. We also run Story Tellers, a social media platform connecting storytellers from around the world to gigs, funding, collaboration opportunities, and to one another.

We are producers and board members of Homelands Productions, a 25 year-old independent documentary journalism cooperative. Until Spring 2017, we collaborated with public radio station KCRW on a year-long multimedia storytelling series about aging called "Going Gray in LA." At present, we are developing a storytelling project about the Bowtie in conjunction with Clockshop, an arts organization in Los Angeles, and California State Parks.

Regional internet disruptions in Nicaragua amid protests
NetBlocks is reporting on "a series of regional internet outages and disruptions" in Nicaragua, where protests are demanding that President Daniel Ortega step down. Hundreds of protesters have been killed in the past few months.

NetBlocks: "NetBlocks IP reachability scans show evidence of regional disruption corresponding to a full internet outage in Jinotega, north of the capital Managua beginning 12:00 UTC Wednesday 18 July up until 16:00 UTC. The scans also indicate an ongoing impact to service in the region following the main period of outage. These incidents can be observed in a time-lapse IP reachability chart published within this report, and are consistent with the network signature of known internet shutdowns and power disruptions...It is unclear whether additional regions or services are affected at present. The cause of the outages remains unattributed, with no official notice of internet curfews or censorship known to have been issued by the authorities."
