TESTIGO DIRECTO. SECCIÓN. NUEVO PERIODISMO

Aunque contrarie a mi amigo "mundano" de un blog cercano, los periodistas de izquierdas también hacen buenos reportajes. Éste es de Maruja Torres, que como columnista me recuerda a las redacciones del borracho de mi barrio, pero como cronista y ejemplo de "TESTIGO DIRECTO" ha creado escuela. Será que EL PAIS no paga por la "última".


Hacia las dos de la tarde -una hora menos en España (11.00 GMT)- jóvenes chíies y presumiblemente de Hezbolá, el Partido de Dios, arrancaron desde el municipio de Ghobeiry, situado en los barrios del sur de Beirut -que en el verano de 2006 fueron duramente bombardeados por Israel-, dispuestos a invadir la capital con su alegría de pobres que por fin salen en los telediarios. Iban en moto.

Más tarde, los veteranos se dirigieron a la autopista que conduce al aeropuerto con bulldozers y camiones.

Para entonces, Beirut ya era algo más que una ciudad fantasmal sobre la que se levantaban las humaredas producidas por el incendio de neumáticos y contenedores de basura que cortaban las principales arterias. La zona cristiana de Tabaris, a pocos cientos de metros de lo que fue la Línea Verde de la guerra mayormente civil que asoló el país de 1975 a 1990, era un hervidero de tanques y personal militar y policial. "Vaya usted a donde quiera, señora", dice el sargento tras contemplar con esmero -y casi con ternura- mi acreditación. "Pero yo no se lo aconsejo. Ellos no le dejarán pasar".

Ellos y nosotros, así funciona. No en dos bandos, en más. Me telefonea un amigo druso: "Mis primos y yo no podemos salir de casa. Cola ha sido tomada por encapuchados que nos piden el carné de identidad". Cola es una parte de la Corniche el Mazra -por la mañana ha habido alli intensos tiroteos; quizá también por la noche-, que se llama así porque antiguamente albergaba la fábrica de Coca-Cola. Luego el barrio se infló de chíies y se pusieron todos a beber Pepsi, que a su juicio no es una marca judía.

Ha habido un momento por la mañana, antes de que los motorizados de Hezbolá se dirigieran a la manifestación, antes de que la oposición -los propios partidarios del Partido de Dios y sus aliados, los cristianos maronitas del ex general Michel Aoun, los chíies de Amal, el movimiento del presidente del Parlamento, Nabih Berri- marchara por la autopista del aeropuerto, con tiendas de campaña, dispuestos sus miembros a iniciar una sentada similar a la que protagonizan desde hace más de un año y mantiene cadáver el Parlamento? Antes, cuando creíamos que íbamos a vivir una jornada más de algaradas, pero sin consecuencias? Antes, los soldados habían soltado el aliento, los policías de máxima seguridad se regocijaban saludando a esta española y ofreciéndole agua. Poco después, a eso de la una del mediodía, la cosa no se puso para bromas.

Había tiroteos en diferentes puntos de la ciudad. Luchas interpartidarias que brotaban como las flores lavanda de algunas acacias, como las gardenias en los balcones. Puntualmente. ¿Querían decir algo? Cerca de mi casa, en Corniche el Mazra, en la sede de un periódico -Futuro-, del movimiento del mismo nombre, en el bloque gubernamental, liderado por Saad Hariri. Llamadas a la calma. Olor de pólvora en las calles, rumores de heridos. Imposible comprobar nada, yendo de un punto a otro caminando -la ciudad, cada vez más vacía; los vigilantes, más recelosos, con más nervios-, salvo eso: el olor del miedo y de la pólvora suelta, todavía confundible con el olor de una verbena.

Son las 17.30 horas en Beirut, una menos en la península y dos menos en las islas Canarias, y de vez en cuando rasgan el aire ráfagas de metralleta -a 500 dólares un Kalashnikov de la guerra antigua: hace un año costaban 50-, y la cosa parece no ir ni a más ni a menos.
Decepcionante para Occidente. Esto no es Irak ni es un tsunami

Estupendo post. No importa que los periodistas sean de izquierdas o derechas. Lo importante, siempre, siempre, es el talento y no las tendencias políticas.

Maruja Torres es una reportera pura sangre. De las mejores. Sus crónicas pasarán a la historia del reporterismo español.

AnA dijo...

Siempre me ha gustado Maruja Torres. Yo creo que es una de mis periodistas preferidas.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.
