Please send us your programs on indigenous peoples and minority languages!

Montreal, July 12th, 2012. Since 1994, on August 9th the International Day
of the World's Indigenous People is celebrated around the world. The United
Nations General Assembly marks this particular day to raise awareness on
the serious situation in which are living more than 500 millions of natives
all over the world.

Several indigenous communities are claiming their land right and are
persecuted because of their claims. Their right to use their own language
is prohibited as well very often. Their right to access in equitable
conditions to a community radio station are not respected neither, with the
consequence that they are not heard.

According to what has been decided at the 10th General Assembly (AMARC 10)
of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), we wish
to underline the International Day of the World's Indigenous People by
making available to its members and people at large radio programs on the
different issues related to indigenous peoples and minority languages.
Please send us the program before July 31st.
