AMARC expresses its concern over the arrest of the director of Radio Horytna

The World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC) expresses its grave concern over the arrest of Ahmed Samih, director of Radio Horytna and the Andalus Institute for Tolerance and Anti-violence Studies (AITAS), and the subsequent filing of charges that relate to the operation of Radio Horytna, Egypt's first Internet radio station. This appears to be politically motivated and intended to further stifle the freedom of expression in Egypt.

Goodbye Sony

It is with dismay and sadness that AMARC announces to all its members and partners that our friend and colleague Sony Estéus passed away during the night of March 1 to March 2 in Port-au-Prince. Haitian, journalist and linguist, Sony was the general manager of Société d’animation en communication sociale (SAKS) and a member of the Board of Directors of AMARC.
