Al Mayadeen blends technology and emotion at Patria Colloquium (+Photos)

Havana, Mar 19 (Prensa Latina) The pan-Arab satellite network Al Mayadeen combines technology and its benefits to create emotions at a stand at the 3rd Patria (Homeland) International Colloquium that, through virtual reality, allows visitors to observe the suffering of the Palestinians.

The advisor to that media outlet and a specialist in Latin America, Wafica Ibrahim, told Prensa Latina that they have tried to take a qualitative step and accompany the development of technologies, because the enemy is winning in the falsification of our realities.

She explained that the virtual reality glasses show heartbreaking images taken by Al Mayadeen’s own correspondents, who have often had to put aside their journalistic work to help the wounded or carry the bodies.

With a 360-degree view, whoever wears the glasses will be able to walk through the rubble and destruction of the streets in Gaza. It also includes audiovisual materials, photographs and figures of how much the Zionist aggression has cost in human matters and economic infrastructure.

“It is a show of help to the Palestinian people and to remind the world that we still have a pending cause,” the Lebanese activist stressed.

She insisted on the urgency for alternative media to enter, with attractive and modern proposals, the global media ecosystem.

Shock is the feeling that prevails among those who approach, put on their glasses, and enter the scene of destruction, horror and desolation that is Gaza today.

Many remain speechless in the face of so much pain, but the indignation at how the “civilized” world has remained immobile in the face of Israel’s crimes is also evident.

In statements to Prensa Latina, the director of the Perlavisión telecenter (Cienfuegos province), Danay Aguila, described the experience practically as if she were there and people empathize even more with the situation of these children.

Seeing those images in two dimensions is not the same as observing and listening to it from all angles, and it also has historic videos that show the genesis of this war of extermination, she described.

Aguila confessed that when she took off her glasses it made her want to run out and help the Palestinians, and be able to take in at least one of those children, because one would make a difference.

The director of Tele Cristal, Diuvechen Vila, in turn, noted that this idea to tell about the war is very original, but at the same time it creates mixed emotions when seeing such a crude reality that we cannot even imagine.

The journalist assured that although he has always defended the Palestinian cause, when one feels the suffering of a family, its children, women and the elderly, one realizes that he still does very little for that people.

Al Mayadeen’s initiative demonstrates how much technology can help to further raise people’s awareness about this crime and those who passed by its stand will definitely have much more empathy for the Palestinian reality.
