JENTILISA’S MISADVENTURE


Is there a new law which definitely bans the use of photo or video cameras in public? I really want to know because I have the feeling that, nowadays, there is a huge suspicion against people who take pictures or videos like bloggers and journalists.

Due to all the recent “terrorist acts” (which can be sum up as the last minute discovery of small-scale bombs) which occured in Antananarivo, security forces keep an eye open for trouble. Anyone who looks like a terrorist, a spy or a mercenary, is immediately arrested.

Can bloggers be considered as terrorists because of the harm they create with their posts? Can bloggers be considered as mercenaries because they look weird? (Do I?) Can bloggers be considered as spies because they take pictures and videos?

Today, our friend, Jentilisa wanted to take some pictures of some policemen, in Antanimena (downtown of Antananarivo), who confiscated banners from some legalist ralliers who were on their way to join the MAGRO place (Ankorondrano – downtown of Antananarivo). The policemen saw him picturing them. They wanted to confiscate his camera but Jentilisa did not accept. Finally, they let him go but warned him “Tadidiko ialahy!” (I will remember you!).

This is not a isolated case, such misadventure has already happened to many bloggers since the beginning of this crisis but till now, we can all admit that we are lucky …

  1. They know that the pictures will be put on the person’s blog and broadcast for everybody in the world to see. One may think that they’re not stupid, but if they really had a brain, even the size of a pea, they’d think that it’s better not to act as they do.

  2. ANTSO HO AN’NY VAHOAKA MALAGASY

    MAPUTO 08 AOGOSITRA 2009

    Ry Malagasy Mpiray Tanindrazana,

    Ny voalohan-teny dia fisaorana an’Andriamanitra noho ny fitahiany, ka nahatongavantsika amin’izao tanjona fampihavanam-pirenena izao.

    Nandalo fotoan-tsarotra tokoa mantsy ny Tanindrazantsika hatramin’ny voalohan’ny taona nankaty nohon’ny fandrombaham- pahefana.

    Voatohina mafy ny andrim-panjakana sy ny firaisam-pirenena.

    Nitsitongana ny fiarian-karena sy ny fiaraha-monina, ary niharatsy ny farim-piainan’ny Vahoaka Malagasy.

    Zava-dehibe loatra ny fitandrovana ny firaisam-pirenenana sy ny soatoavina malagasy. Koa hamerenana haingana ny fandriam-pahalemana sy ny filaminana, ary hanarenana ny toekarena , dia heveriko fa tonga ny fotoana handraisan’ny mpitarika politika rehetra andraikitra eo anatrehan’ny tantara, ary hametrahana ny tombotsoan’ny Firenena ambonin’ny zava-drehetra, hampitsaharana ny fanaovana takalonaina ny Vahoaka Malagasy.

    Ho ahy manokana, dia ambarako amin’ny Vahoaka Malagasy, fa tsy izaho velively no ho sakana amin’ny hahitantsika lalan-kivoahana amin’izao krizy izao.

    Amin’ny maha Filohan’ny Repoblika ny tenako, antoky ny firaisan-kinam-pirenena, dia manambara ankitsi-po aho, fa vonona hampangina ny hambompo maha olombelona, hikatsahana ny vahaolana iraisana amin’izao krizy politika mampijaly ny Vahoaka Malagasy izao.

    Mba ho fitandrovana ny tombotsoa ambony ny Firenena, dia heveriko fa fahendrena ny tsy handraisako anjara amin’ny fitantanana ny tetezamita iarahana. Nefa kosa ny “Mouvance Marc RAVALOMANANA”, mandala ny ara-dalàna dia handray anjara mavitrika amin’izany.

    Hiverina an-tanindrazana tokoa aho, araky ny efa nambarako hatramin’izay, ka matokia ahy ianareo. Aza matahotra, minoa fotsiny ihany.

    Manao antso avo hoan’ny mpitondra politika rehetra aho, hametraka ny tombontsoam-pirenena ambonin’ny zavatra rehetra.

    Mangataka amintsika rehetra aho hitandro hatrany ny Fihavanana sy ny firaisan-kina. Andeha isika hanokatra pejy vaovao, ary hifantoka amin’ny hoavy.

    Midera tanteraka ny herimpo sy ny fitiavan-Tanindrazana nasehontsika rehetra aho, tamin’ny fiarovana ny Lalampanorenana sy ny ara-dalana.

    Misaotra ny Vahoaka Malagasy aho, indrindra ireo mpanohana ahy sy ireo rehetra nametraka tamiko ny fitokisany, ary nitondra ihany koa ny anjara birikiny amin’ny fitadiavana vahaolana iraisana sy milamina amin’izao krizy izao.

    Miantso ny tsirairay aho hanao izay tandrifiny azy mba hahatafita ny tetezamita iraisana ho an’i Madagasikara vaovao ;

    Mahatoky isika rehetra fa ho raiketin’ny Tantara izao finiavana sy fitiavan-tanindrazana asehontsika izao.

    Isaorako ny Vahoaka Malagasy tamin’ny ezaka rehetra izay vitantsika, niasa niaraka tamin’ny fampandrosoana ny Firenena.

    Misaotra ny Fianakaviambe iraisam-pirenena, Ireo mpiara-miombon’antoka amin’i Madagasikara, indrindra ny SADC, ny Vondrona Afrikana, ny OIF, ny Firenena Mikambana ary ireo iraka manokana tamin’ny fandraisana anjara mavitrika, hitadiavana vahaolana amin’izao krizy politika izao.

    Manolotra fisaorana manokana hoan’ny Filoha Joaquim Chissano sy ireo mpiara-miasa aminy, tamin’ny ezaka rehetra nataony ny tenako.

    Mankasitraka manokana ny Filoha Gebuza sy ny Governementa ary ny Vahoaka Mozambikana aho, izay nanaiky nampiantrano ity fivorianan’ny mpitarika politika efa-tonta ity, ary nahitam-bokatra.

    Misaotra ihany koa ireo mpitarika politika telo mirahalahy, miaraka amin’ny delegasiona avy, tonga taty Maputo, Mozambique.

    Ho raiketin’ny Tantara ny ezaka sy ny finiavana ary ny fanehoana fitiavan-tanindrazana nitadiavana vahaolana maharitra amin’izao fahasahiranana politika andalovan’ny Firenena izao, hampajakana ny fihavanam-pirenena, sy hananganatsika firenena vanona, Madagasikara vaovao.

    Eto am-pamaranana, dia mirary soa ho anareo mpitondra ny tetezamita iraisana ny tenako.

    Homba antsika mandrakariva Andriamanitra !
