For the past eight years, Real World Radio has been dedicated to covering the struggles of men and women from every corner of the world, whose daily actions help build another world, different from those who seek to develop at any cost without consideration for human and environmental rights.
Peasants, indigenous peoples, people affected by oil and mining activities, fisherfolk,
workers, activists, members of social organizations, are some of the people for which Real World
Radio has been a platform to express and disseminate their struggles.
Since its creation, the radio has tried to become a tool to break the information barrier imposed by
mass media, where there is no place for these stories. RWR has tried to “give voice to those who have no voice”: but not because they lack a voice, but because their voice is ignored and silenced by the ruling, mainstream discourse.
Today, Real World Radio is suffering from financial restrictions which may cause it to cease to exist. We need you to continue doing our work, to continue providing a space for those who do not have one.
“As women, we are the ones who maintain hope. And I think that while we do this, we need to encourage many other women and tell them to dare to go out, to raise their voices, to avoid being afraid to speak. (…) Women have been told to be afraid within our social and cultural circles. (…) We are covered by a blanket of fear, but we need to move forward with a blanket of hope”, said Jakeline Romero Epiayu.
The European Union (EU) made clear this Friday in Geneva that it is ready to block the advance of the negotiations at the United Nations for a binding treaty on transnational corporations and human rights violations.
