Radio 1812, www.radio1812.net, is an initiative by December 18, the International Advocacy and Resource Centre on the Human Rights of Migrant Workers. It is a global event, held on December 18, that brings together migrant groups and radios from around the world to produce, broadcast and share programmes celebrating the achievements and highlighting the concerns of migrants worldwide.
Making migrant voices heard is the common thread throughout International Migrants Day events and this is precisely what is at the heart of Radio 1812: linking communities worldwide around the pressing and ever present issue of migrant rights.
For this fourth edition, we will launch “Voices from the Field” series and we will also produce new content about the Athens' Global Forum on Migration and Development.
The team behind Radio1812 invites you to take part in this global audio event with the aim to involve more countries, radios, migrant organisations and concerned citizens all around the world in the celebrations for International Migrants Day on 18 December 2009.
