Exclusive: Epic South Sudan River Trip For Not On Our Watch Photographer

(The following is the third in a regular series of multimedia dispatches from veteran journalist Tim Freccia reporting from southern Sudan.)

 

Sometimes journalists working in chaotic, hostile environments uncover amazing stories. Other times, they become the story.

 

Veteran multimedia journalist Tim Freccia, who has been filing a series of dispatches from southern Sudan for Enough and Not On Our Watch, recently traveled to the town of Bor in Jonglei state. His goal was to link up with and document one of the barges that is traveling south along the Nile River bringing southern Sudanese living in the North back home ahead of next month’s referendum on southern independence.

Exclusive: Southern Sudanese Return Ahead of Referendum

(The following is the first in a regular series of multimedia dispatches from veteran journalist Tim Freccia reporting from southern Sudan.)

With nearly a month to go before the South votes on independence from the North, thousands of southerners living in the North are flooding back to their southern homelands in convoys of ancient, dilapidated buses. The southerners are returning, they say, out of fear of potential reprisals in the North should the country split into two.
