Voices without frontiers

Montreal, March 25, 2011 Calling for the celebration of human diversity in
society, Radio Voices Without Frontiers (RVSF) traveled the world for its
fourteenth time this March 21st 2011 in a multilingual radio marathon against
discrimination. Produced by the World Association of Community Radio
Broadcasters (AMARC) in collaboration with community radio producers and
stations from around the world, the international broadcast commemorated the UN
International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Although RVSF happens one day a year, radio stations and the general public
are encouraged to download and broadcast its programs on their local radio
stations throughout the year. Please go to http://www.rvsf.amarc.org and click on podcast button.

Besides reinforcing the socially inclusive ethos of the community radio
sector and promoting access to the media by minorities and disadvantaged groups,
RVSF also encourages stations to use new communication technologies such as the
Internet to extend the reach of their voices.

Through service to members, networking and project implementation, the World
Association of Community Radio Broadcasters AMARC, brings together a network of
more than 4,000 community radios, Federations and community media stakeholders
in more than 115 countries. The main global impact of AMARC since its creation
in 1983, has been to accompany and support the establishment of a worldwide
community radio sector that has democratized the media sector. AMARC advocates
for the right to communicate at the international, national, local and
neighbourhood levels and defends and promotes the interests of the community
radio movement through solidarity, networking and Cooperation. For further
