Oaxaca, Mexico: Radio El Nudo Mixteco installed and inaugurated in Santo Domingo Ixcatlan

15th January 2009

After 9 months of mourning since the horrific massacre which killed three people in the remote village of Santo Domingo Ixcatlan in the Mixteca region of Oaxaca, Southern Mexico, the residents of the community were very pleased by the arrival and inauguration of their new community radio station – a positive step towards recovery and the reunification of the community.

RadioActive staff Max Graef and Mark Benewith spent 5 days in Santo Domingo Ixcatlan, with volunteer radio production trainer Caroline Dampier and cameraman Alex Kinsman, installing the station equipment, giving basic training to the station team and celebrating with the many community members who came out to celebrate the arrival of the station.
