Community radio has never been more important than it is now, and I feel like the current threat against it is a clear acknowledgement of this.  

The youth of Australia is becoming more vocal, more creative and increasingly aware of their power as a collective group of independent artists and active members of society.

Community Radio ensures media diversity and affords voice and expression to the communities it serves.

Without the self determining voice of community radio, how can we as a community truly be in control of our own media?

Without community radio how can we even claim to be one?
