Radio 18/12 launches Tune in on International Migrant’s Day!

Brussels 9TH November 2006

Migration is a worldwide phenomenon. In 2005, 200 million people lived
abroad. And this is not new: Europe, America, and Australia were built on
the influx of millions of people. For the past six years, the international
community has recognized the rights of migrants worldwide and has celebrated
their achievements on 18th of December, International Migrant’s Day. 

Last year, migrants’ rights organizations, church groups, unions and local
authorities organized activities in 30 countries, ranging from an IMD-rally
in Bangladesh to a film festival in Israel. Making migrants’ voices heard is
the common thread throughout these activities. 

And this is precisely what will be at the heart of Radio 18-12. This year,
supported by UNESCO, Inter-Pares, Oxfam Novib and the Flemish Minister of
Culture, Youth, Sports and Brussels, Radio18-12 will organise a global radio
marathon on 18th December 2006, where local radio stations in at least
twenty countries will broadcast programmes on migration, starting in
Australia and terminating in the Americas.

René Plaetevoet, Director of December 18, the international advocacy and
resource centre on the human rights of migrant workers behind the Radio18-12
initiative, says: “Radio18-12 is a new and exciting initiative which aims to
put the voices of the often-voiceless at the centre of the debate around
migration, to highlight the far too often abusive and exploitative working
conditions they find themselves in, and to celebrate migrant’s achievements
and contributions to our societies.” 

Most of the programs broadcasted on the day will also be available on line.
