femlinkpacific welcomes renewal of community radio licence

22 December 2009

Suva, Fiji Islands

Femlinkpacific, the operators of the mobile "suitcase" radio station 89.2FM
today welcomed the news that the Telecommunication Authority of Fiji has
renewed the women's NGO's community radio licence until December 2010:

"Even though we are still required to comply with the media regulations
under the current Public Emergency Decree, this means we can continue with
our weekend broadcasts in the capital city and also undertake our rural
broadcast campaigns, which links rural women in Ba, Nadi, Nausori, Savusavu
and Labasa through the production and broadcast of local programmes which
address their peace and human security priorities," says femlinkpacific
Coordinator, Sharon Bhagwan Rolls, "Community radio is also a valuable way
to promote community based dialogue and discussion."

The rural broadcast campaign is scheduled for January 11 - 23, 2010.

89.2FM uses a low powered transmitter which reaches a 10 kilometre radius.
The project also includes a team of Young Women Producers and Broadcasters
who recently hosted 16 days of special broadcasts dedicated to the annual
global campaign to overcome violence against women.

The suitcase radio station was launched on 5 May 2004.
