January 26, 2008 – Global Day of Action: “Another World is Possible”

The World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) is calling on radio organizations to be part of the World Social Forum’s Global Day of Action on January 26, 2008. The day has been designated for social movements and civil society to mobilize against “neo-liberalism, war, colonialism, racism, and patriarchy.” AMARC will use this day to promote communications rights as a fundamental human right. AMARC has also stated that community radio stations in more than 110 countries will participate by covering social action that takes place on January 26.
