As we navigate the crisis, its essential we recognise the role of our media, that we support them and enable them to do their jobs, that we allow them to listen to report and share with us and to help us understand and to end the violence.
For the communities impacted, it’s critical that one of the first structures they repair is their community stations, as they will go some way in rebuilding the community. For the state, they need to find those responsible and get to the bottom of why the stations were looted and then they need to ensure those responsible are exposed and brought to justice.
