Palestine-based Radio Alhara is organising a three-day worldwide protest starting on the 8th of July, in response to the proposed annexation of the West Bank. The three-day lineup of international artists is being mirrored by radio stations around the world. Tune in on their website to listen.
Radio Alhara emerges in a time of isolation and boredom, a time where the future of the world as we know it remains unknown.
The project is inspired by Radio il Hai Beirut and Radio Alhuma Tunis, which were in turn inspired by Radio Quartiere Milano.
This is a communal radio station/program/project, it begins in Bethlehem and Ramallah, and aims to extend to other places in Palestine and throughout the world, an open platform for listening, adding, discussing, and chatting. So we can all go through this time of solitude while communicating and reminding each other of each other. We hope this is the beginning of a collective space that will continue once this worldwide crisis is over.
We won’t know all the ones who are listening, nor the ones who will be adding and broadcasting, such is this digital situation we are living in now. But we send hope and courage to everyone, and we tell you: See you soon!
