Community Radio

Making our own radio program without interruptions. La Trama Comunicacion (Argentina) actually is not a radio station. It’s a community communications platform trying to give anyone the choice of having a program. It is a critical political project that started on radio with journalists from the University of Buenos Aires which has become quite big. Through E-motive they work with Spanish communities in Cordoba.
