Amparo Cadavid came all the way from Colombia to attend a radio conference in Madison, Wisconsin. She showed a video about 15 small community radio stations along the Magdalena River in North Western Colombia. An elder woman is shooing away the chickens to turn on the radio station in the morning. At another station children are doing their own Live radio program.

We need to find sister stations for all 15 stations. The goal is to call once a week and let them know that they are not alone. Later there might be a program exchange or even mutual visits. e-mail us via this site and we put you in touch with the Columbia Support Network.

Under Plan Colombia, financed by our taxes, all military action has increased. US aid flowing into Colombia is also arming the death squads and para-military who wage war on the civilian population. A sister radio station project might help protect the stations and the programmers.

This interview with Amparo Cadavid also includes two cuts of original music from the region.
