Bahia, Brazil: MST FM goes on the air!12th October 2009
In December 2009, RadioActive returned from a 6 week trip to Brazil working with Brazilian landless workers’ movement MST (Movimento de Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra). The first stop on this trip was to help set up MST FM in Wenceslau-Guimarães, a small town in Bahia.
After 10 days of installation and training, the station was on the air and left in the capable hands of members of the local community and MST settlers. The focus of the station will be to provide a local source of news and information, a platform for discussion and debate and a place where young people can learn to make radio and express themselves.
